    AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL, these photos on the Russian island, from which I learned and I was immediately curious to read the book “The Seventh Seal” (very good indeed! Everyone should read and take knowledge and awareness of what is happening on the planet! Oh I could not NEVER forget to mention the name of the author (who I admire very much): José Rodrigues dos Santos)
