Sunset over Oxted



This is a short (time-lapse) video that I took from the North Down above Oxted yesterday. One second of the video represents one minute in real time. It was a good clear day today, and as you can see from the photo below (taken just before I started the time lapse) you can see to the South Downs.

Movement in Paris

image


This is the headquarters of the Evil Empire in Paris.

On the positive side, I noticed a lot more cyclists in central Paris this week than I have noticed on any visit in the past decade.

Paris street at dawn

image


Here’s the dawn view of yesterday night’s street. The hotel boasts the word “Best” in the title but it is neither good nor better than most. I have noted it under the “never again” category, mainly due to the cramped conditions not just in my room but that pervade the entire hotel.

Parisian street by night

image

After a minor rail delay I arrived at Gare du Nord tonight and managed to find my hotel in the 8e arrondissement. Having checked into the hotel it then took as long again to find my way into my room. The room itself reminds me of a cupboard under the stairs. It has a pleasant outside balcony but the street is not as quiet as one might suspect from the photograph.

Rotterdam by day

image


Curtains aside, this appears to be a view down to the Maas River and Rotterdam centre from the Erasmus University.

Rotterdam by night

image


This is the view of the Rotterdam skyline (I assume) from Erasmus University. I use the word “assume” because I arrived with some colleagues in the middle of the night, so I feel a bit disoriented. I’ll take another shot in the morning for comparison.
