Kana aggiabalu fi-ggiabali
A-ssalam 'alaikum 'alaiki

Qala' ecc...
Da bambini si giocava sulle spiaggie con degli aquiloni a gara sotto il solementre guardavamo il mio salire verso l'alto preoccupati che non si sciupassela mia parte assente si identificava con l'umidit

Qala' ecc...
Gli orchestrali sono uguali in tutto il mondo simili ai segnali orario delleradio.
Le domeniche e nei giorni di vacanza ci si organizzava per le feste in casal'uomo è l'animale pi

ù stupido che c'è.
Qala' ecc...
