I think I’ve done enough now to count myself a true flaneur. That is, I enjoy an aimless stroll, especially in ancient cities like Paris. I love prowling the older streets…. left over from the rebuilding of the 1870s. Then again, there’s ‘the new’…. in this case, the beautiful cast iron work….
If you’ve ever lived on an island, you’ll have noticed the small weirdnesses that isolation brings. It gets a bit tribal somedays. After the recent fires and storms, the Dangaris went back to their old ways… building ritual sites out of the fallen timber.
These were ephemeral moai… gone in a few days. It’s getting chilly here and firewood is hard to come by.
This looks like something you’d see today, but it’s from around 2008. Seen at the railway station in Beppu, Japan. This team is on a mission, but I’m not sure what it was. Seems to involve masks, spray gear and facemasks. Could have been from the SARS era.
When I think of the word ‘elixir’ it is normally in the sense of ‘what should I drink with this gorgeous food?’ It’s a pleasant thought. When I travel I try to order a local wine, if there is one. Here’s a selection from my Google Maps restaurant reviews… no one is looking for restaurants at the moment!
