Rabbit season

So… We were in the elevator to our apartment after seeing the Stereophonics last night (review coming soon). When we reached our floor and the doors opened, there were three fluffy bunny rabbits mucking about (and doing little poos) in the corridor. True story. What, you don’t believe me? Here they are in glorious tallscreen:...

The fruit of Thailand

A while ago I wrote a post in which promised to show you the cards which went alongside the fruit the Mandarin Oriental supplied every day during our stay. There were beautifully illustrated watercolours on some nice off-white textured stock. They looked good. Now, with the set up of my scanner, you too can see: See what I’m...

Pretty tires right now, but I wanted to show both of you a few...
