ic requirements for a good life. Anyone who wants to help the owner of this house can call the following number: 01063649227 / 0032474954000 - Papa says: that's a very good idea. - I agree, that's a good idea. - Beautiful idea. - Does someone use this kitchen or is it abandoned? - Do these gas stoves still exist? - They still exist in some areas. - There are no houses that look like this close to the Pyramids. - I can't believe that there are houses like this near the Pyramids, because the pyramids are in an upscale area. - I went to a house that looks like this and I really liked it and felt very relaxed. - A picture does not always show the difference between the rich and poor.
