Adventures in the Peak District

A sharp, silver, slither shot down from an ominous cloud. It met the top of the mountain adjacent to where I was standing. I blinked, and it was over. The lightning was gone as quickly as it arrived.

The North London bubble

Blimey, where is all the noise? Walking to my local gym at 7 am felt most alien. I have made the same walk umpteen times in the last couple of years. Usually, I walk there automatically without thinking about where I am going. However, recently arriving from India everything feels tainted. Strolling along the main... Continue Reading →
