Cinque Terre, Italia

Cinque Terre, Italia

The view was like a vision described in novels; a tiny town that hovered on jagged cliffs and sparkling blue water, and by no means did the “visions” stop through out the day…” “Destination: Cinque Terre”, story by Sergio Ortiz

Oh Calcutta

Oh Calcutta

Thus the midday halt of Charnock – more’s the pity! - Grew a City | As the fungus sprouts chaotic from its bed| So it spread| Chance-directed, chance-erected, laid and built| On the silt| Palace, byre, hovel – poverty and pride| Side by side| And above the packed and pestilential town| Deat...

Varanasi is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice as old as all of them put together ~ Mark Twain. These words, spoken a century ago, still stand the test of time
