Culture or opium for the masses

I'm on holiday this week. It's about 30 degrees, the sun beating down on all and sundry. This means impersonating a crocodile (Or, more likely -a midsize hippopotami...) by lounging around in a nearby lake all day.

Come afternoon and I nipped down to the library. Borrowed the following books:

  • "Islands in the stream" by Ernest Hemingway
  • "Exiles" (3 short novels) by Philip Caputo
  • "BrazilFazDesign" (a book on brazilian design)
  • "Angelica's Grotto" by Russel Hoban
I also rented a DVD "The last days of the Universe" by Pen-Ek Ratanaruang (a Thai/Japanese movie). While at the library I caught an exhibition of art purchased by my city. I would have like more installations.
