El Ministerio del Tiempo 1×08 Review: The Legend of Time

ministerio del tiempo 1x08 alonso apuntador tenorio

I have never considered myself a superstitious person. I don’t believe in things like horoscopes or rabbit’s feet, but I do like to think that some people are capable of having premonitory dreams. Or that perhaps we all do, but only some are able to remember them. Continue reading
