He still cycles to work

Bicycles might be down and out for most of us as a regular mode of transport, especially outside of some countries in Western Europe, but the humble gardener still uses the trusty mode of transport. When I was a kid, the gardener came on a bicycle and, now, several decades later, he still comes on…

Love Birds

This beautiful “couple” was spotted near the Bahrain International Airport. The stork “interaction”, even if it was two weeks after Valentines Day, took place as the high tide was coming in at the Arad Walkway, providing hundreds of evening walkers with an interesting interlude.
