Peter Leporid’s Encounter With The Old Man

I wanted to briefly share some first pictures from the locations of the Paulo Coelho “Quest for the Sword” – in the background you will hear music by Paul Horn. It’s really more sounds than music. I was listening to his recordings for hours and hours during the quest and its long days and especially […]
