Exploring All The Local Cafes of Haren

Okay, so this may seem like more of an advertisement piece, but it’s where I am and that’s more important than maintaining my I Have Totally Not Sold Out reputation.

That should be the title of this piece, eh?

I mean, for social media purposes and such.

Whatevs.
