每日的十一點是我們例行性的休息時光。這段時間除了讓我們喘口氣之外,也讓我們有機會更了解彼此。我們無話不談:談鞋子、談天氣、談每天發生在身上的周遭小事,當然也少不了,彼此互開玩笑、搞笑不正經。休息是為了走更長遠的路,俗話是這樣說的,對吧! 攝影紀錄當Guilio用髮圈來測試他鬍子的長度。

Every day 11:00 a.m. is our “pausa time”. We talked about shoes, talked about daily life, talked about everything happened around us. With a little break, we work better.
