The weather hasn't exactly been the best in Ticino so far this autumn, but at least the temps seem to have dropped now. Too bad this has meant snow...

Paul's main focus now will be on the really hard and classic stuff, such as Dreamtime, The story of 2 worlds, Ninja skills, Big paw... etc.
"America... fuck yeah!"
