Two new books. I've recently bought four books from the same collection, all from Asian writers. The one on the right, Tio, was wonderful, poetical, a bit magical, and a very pleasing read. On the left, it's Hurree Babu from the Kipling book, Kim, meeting Sherlock Holmes and the Dalaï Lama, and it's fun. Great descriptions of colonial India and old "Thibet".
I probably watched too much American/Californian/Hawaaïan stuff on tv when I was young... this is my vision of paradise... not very original, but effective - it really makes me happy!
I've never been on a surf board... Been on a skate board for one second, once, and hurt my elbow badly. Been on a snow board for one afternoon, and loved it, but I still have troubles with my right knee since... so now I stick to skiing and avoid boards except on paper.
