Un desastre estuve en el lugar del encuentro pero nunca aparecieron

Response from Helene
Lo siento, con la llegada de la temporada turística , el lugar estaba lleno de turistas, y muchos buses, yo los busqué pero no lo encontré.. yo se que es frustrante y me disculpo por eso. Me doy cuenta que tendré que elegir otro punto de encontró más fácil. Este que siempre es desértico por el invierno en el espacio de poco se llena terriblemente!!!! Los deseo el mejor!!
