December of 2015
The last time I was on an international flight was back in 1995. We flew out of Riyadh and into Hyderabad. Life has been very interesting since then. Switzerland wouldn’t have been the first choice. What with it being unimaginatively expensive. If not for very dear friends who call Geneva home, I don’t think I would have ever visited the country. I’m not complaining. Just showing you the road signs to help you understand “where I’m coming from”.
I didn’t take as many photographs as I thought I would. What with it being my first outing with the new camera. But of the ones that I did take, they can be divided broadly into two categories – people and places.
I will start with people. Why? The url of this website has my name in it. That’s why.
On an aside. I know I’m not the only one who believes or believed in the “Scandinavian Utopia”. And while one has access to a veritable mountain of articles, documentaries, commentaries, political discourses, etc etc that seem to state otherwise, it is just that at the end of it all – a smorgasbord of information. I highly recommend giving this book a read for the simple fact that it packages everything up so neatly for you – easy to understand and quick to astound. Horrify even.
You can buy it here. It is quite the eye/mind opener.
This is of course if you are a pessimistic bastard who is against the idea of living in harmony with your fellow man/woman kind for all eternity, dressed in snazzy space suits and flying around buildings in portable toilets, downloading gigabytes of information on the fly.
This is the book for you if you are one of those people.
Now. Without further adieu, I give you – people.
