UNITED KINGDOM | Thu, 28 Apr 2016 | By tiltingwindmills | Views [161]

It was a bit of a shock to arrive into the cold rain of London after two months of balmy weather in Africa, and I had to dig into the bottom of my backpack for the down jacket. Despite the chill, it was still nice to enter the bustling heart of the city.... Read more >

A delight for the senses.

UNITED KINGDOM | Sat, 21 Mar 2015 | By homeless_harry | Views [508]

We as ‘civilized’ beings create an urban web around us. We try to make it perfect bit by painful bit everyday, only to realize at the end of the day, are we fighting a lost battle? Our idea of beauty, fame, success, achievement, religion, power, inequality is as man-made, imperfect and fragile as man itself. A bad day of weather can wipe away our entire cities, families, monuments. Lest we still bask in the glory of being superior.: by vishal_tomar, Views[435]
