Re: Fillipos help

Re: Crete Beer Video

I didn't see or hear anything I'd describe as Brill. I couldn't decide whether it was supposed to be funny or taking the P or both. That's a five more minutes of my life wasted.

Re: Vietnamese Rice Paper Wraps

Does anyone know of a store that would sell Vietnamese Rice Paper Wraps in the Chaina area. Depends where you are. If you mean Chania area is that east or west of?
