Logan – A tired Wolverine

Tired. That was the overwhelming feeling I had after watching 2.5 hours of that movie on the big screen. And tired, too, were the characters, especially Logan a.k.a. Wolverine. He was far from the prime Wolverine that we came to know and love many years ago. Gone are the days of the endless power, instant… Continue reading Logan – A tired Wolverine

Conversation in the A&E room

The nurse walked out of the A&E room. Everyone looked up, anxiously waiting. She called out a name. No response. She called again. Still no response. Then the admin staff answered: “No family member”. “No family member”. The nurse mumbled, walking back in. I did not know what that patient would feel, but if I… Continue reading Conversation in the A&E room

Visit to Venice Islands – Further Ashore

Another visit to the islands of Venice. This time I went further ashore, purchasing a day pass that would allow me unlimited rides within 24 hours. That proved to be a smart move, since there were many stops and boat changes during the day. My first stop was Burano, the furthest island from Venice mainland.… Continue reading Visit to Venice Islands – Further Ashore

Venice At Night

Second time I visited Venice after dark. It was much less crowded, quieter and more peaceful, since the hordes of tourists have long left the square for dinner or to call it a day. I could spend some quality time to enjoy the square, the church, the buildings without being afraid of bumping into someone… Continue reading Venice At Night
