Around

December 14, 2009

The things around us. Wondering if the surrounding environment shapes us or do we shape the surrounding environment …

See No Evil, Hear No Evil

December 13, 2009

See No Evil, Hear No Evil – Wally (Richard Pryor) and Dave (Gene Wilder) – a blind and a deaf man – what in life would have not been funny has been turned into a hilarious comedy. Kevin Spacey in the role of a most credible villain.

Churchill’s statue

Churchill’s statue in Parliament Square in London. “History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.”  A man who wrote history and not only, and was awarded Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953.

“All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.”

The Jubilee Bridge from up the London Eye distantly reminding of Harry Potter.

A boat trip on the Thames and in less than 30 minutes, having one foot in the Eastern and the other one – in the Western Hemisphere at the Greenwich meridian.

When the stars appear, the green laser beam shines north across the London night sky.
