'Debra Monroe '
At august 1 - 2012 there was been orginized a tour of Marilyn Monroe in hollywood. It was this year that she died 50th years ago.
Deborah was there for a week from august 1 to august 6th. It was a wonderful experience and she had met alot of lovely and kindness people who are fan of Marilyn Monroe, even she knew these people only from Facebook. There was also a tombola and there became a hairpin raffled of Marilyn Monroe. And she won the original hairpin of Marilyn Monroe! And it's still her most beautiful souvenir she have.
