Il pullman sarà confermato al raggiungimento del numero minimo di 25 persone, e dopo conferma il saldo dovrà essere versato entro il 01.08.22.

I know that will have a special WPD from Rio de Janeiro for the occasion because the roganizer is a designer, but I don’t know the postcard yet, it was not showed.
Maybe I will make a special one due to my visit there together with WPD, didn’t decide yet, so it can have two different postcards.
As soon as I have, I will show you the postcard !!
Or from any other place in Brazil, just ask !
