Postcards from Orkney (1)

Orkney: an island group about 10 miles north of the Top End of Scotland. With its treasures and histories shrouded...

Where I went last weekend: Wrest Park, Bedford

It took about 10 minutes to walk between Bedford’s railway and bus station, winding through some typically suburban lanes. En-route, there was a modernist Italian church, with the Italian tricolour and the EU flag flapping on the buntings outside; a West Indian social club, draped with handbills for a Jamaican independence day bash; a Polish club, with Euro-pop emanating from the attached bar; and a mosque, dome almost like a Russian Orthodox Church, with taxis parked outside. Middle England.

Richmond Park 倫敦都市綠洲

Richmond Park 列治文公園,是倫敦的皇家公園之一,和海德公園,格森威治公園同級。不過,Richmond Park可要比其更著名的同伴們要大得多—面積差不多十平方公里,是海德公園的六倍,香港維園的五十倍。與其說這是個公園,不如說是個被城牆環繞著的野外。

People have christened Edinburgh as 'Athens of the North': with its splendid architecture, reputation for academia and enlightenment, AND that clear sky of ocean blue that fails to greet me, who is it to object?

Justin’s London: 10 Favourite Spots (2)

Hidden in the woods suburbia of Forest Hill, south London, the Horniman is a legend among middle school children: endowed to the public thanks to matrimonial quarrels but adored by immature thirteen-year-olds, this (slightly off the beaten track) museum and its adjoining park is a wonderful place to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.
