(Disclaimer/Rambling Preface: the title to this post is a Bill Bryson reference — you may have noticed that I like to rip off one thing or another in most of my titles. I must inform you, with regret, that this post is not likely to achieve one-tenth of the humour of the Bryson book of the same name. Terribly sorry about that. For those of you who haven’t read A Walk in the Woods, I suggest you do: it’s truly hilarious).
I was pretty bummed when I realized that Stelian left for the UK without taking our shared camera. I would like to know what Brighton, England looks like — especially after Stelian has informed me that it’s in some ways the Las Vegas of the UK (as he put it, “what happens in Brighton, stays in Brighton”) and that the hotel room he’s staying in looks like a love nest from the 1970s.
Oh, well — the camera was with me, so I decided to take you along on a walk today. This is a forest near our house — I typically run in it, but today I walked, because I’m afraid of running with the camera. I hope you enjoy the scenery…I know I did.
My chosen path led me to the shanty town of Zürich North. What — you haven’t heard of the raging poverty that exists here in Switzerland?
But some of them are quite nice. And, I’m convinced that they’re also larger than the average Vancouver
After tearing myself away from the deer, I came across this. Seriously? Who buys spray-paint with this kind of graffiti in mind? Only in Switzerland…
Thanks for joining, and I hope your Thursday is a pleasant one too!
