Superbe, son (leur) sourire de mousson, et l'autre qui arrive, drenched, en face. J'aime aussi la diagonale jaune que fait la portière de la voiture

J'ouvre la page propre et lumineuse, et je m'exclame "que c'est beau !", vraiment très beau les teintes de peaux, la bâche, ce jaune, cette mousson. Très bel angle de vue. Je reviendrai.
