Delhi is a busy place


The picture says it all really. Old Delhi is a crazy place, the sights and smells are incomparable. I advise not to stand still for very long, or you will find a group of people surrounding you wanting to take you to their Uncles carpet emporium, or sell you nice DVD, or take all your money, or give you a ride in their tuk-tuk to avoid road closure due to demonstration, or read you fortune, or.... you get the idea.

Bored in Transit


I am sat in Dubai Airport Business Lounge at the moment and I am very bored. The only thing to do is eat all the free food, another breakfast is calle for. They have the usual western fare, but whoever invented chicken sausages should be locked up, cant wait to get back home for some nice cumberland instead.

Working in exotic places

I am off to Delhi for a few days next week. Hopefully I can manage to bring one of these back in my suitcase. Ideal transport for the M62 from Milnrow over to Leeds.

Now Google Streetview has gone live for the UK, all I can do is sit here and tour round the county. Here are a couple of nice spots, Elgol and Sligachan on Skye

Lighting up time

Took part in the Illuminating Hadrians Wall event yesterday, coverage is in all over the press today. It is was rather cold on Steel Rigg, until I lit the burner. Photos of my burner alight are on the Guardian website (photos 1 and 5)

Spring Snow

Enjoyed a stunner of a day in the North Pennines today, lots of snow above 500m. Not a breath of wind and wall to wall sun shine.
