This woman was on the way to the market as we were getting near. The fog was really dense, and this feels otherworldly

In Pakistan, colourful trucks are the norm on the roads. This one, carrying some potatoes to the market, was just one of many!

forest of fontainebleau and climbing

the mossy rocks, humid forest floor, and the colourful pine trees all add to the peaceful atmosphere

The weather for climbing was not ideal, but at least it did not rain!

Whilst visiting the work that the Government of Punjab is doing in Bahawalpur district, we went to a fruit and vegetables market in Bahawalpur main bazaar. This trader was located in front of the gates, in front of the banner explaining what our initiative was trying to achieve! He was very loud and friendly and insisted that we buy some of his fruit. I could not resist! They tasted good as well. People in Asia put orange henna dye in their hair for various reasons. One of them is tell the world that they have made a pilgrimage to Mecca, the holiest site in Muslim beliefs.

Photo: a full moon in a game reserve in Kenya

At a workshop in Naivasha, next to Nakuru game reserve in central Kenya, we visited a small nature reserve near a lodge. Luckily we spotted a few animals before the sun set, and then we walked through the park at night. It was a beautiful evening with eerie moonshine. Realkly recommend going through that part of Kenya though. Slightly less touristy than the major game reserves in East Africa.

At a workshop in Naivasha, next to Nakuru game reserve in central Kenya, we visited a park in one of the main lodges in the area at sunset. Luckily we spotted a few animals before it got dark, and then we walked through the park at night. It was a beautiful evening with eerie moonshine, almost as nice as seeing the wild (ish) animals. A memorable moment. Really recommend going through that part of Kenya. Slightly less touristy than the major game reserves in East Africa.

Photo: a rainbow over bricks and mortar

In London on Saturday night, a huge double rainbow appeared over the London skyline. It was a beautiful sight and luckily I just had enough battery to take 2 pictures with my camera before it shut down. No pressure then. It appeared in front of perhaps the ugliest building in London, making it look strangely attractive for once in its 40 year history. Finally, and this is what strikes me as odd. Notice the colour of the sky on the left is different to the one on the right. I have no idea why? does someone who is involve in meteorology or physics know why this is? Anyway, this is proof that even ugly London skylines can sometime be quite pretty
