Episode 19: Love is in the bachelor air

Everyone loves Boris. Especially his friends that made this Ajvar a bachelor party kick off all time high. (Ok his wife to be kind of like him to). And the soundtrack is off course made up of the ultimate love tunes. Lots of back beat, a little bit of Lollywood love, Arabic tenderness and old calypso with words of wisdom. From here on to, most likely, eternity.
