That’s All Folks

After four unforgettable years, it was time to move on. Another country, another ocean, a new continent in the Southern Hemisphere. A series of very fortunate events would bring us to the faraway land that is New Zealand, and not a moment too soon. Because of Covid-19, our trip would be longer than usual, flying to Greece first, for a family reunion, then on to Auckland via Dubai and Kuala Lumpur. Almost full circle around the Globe.

We’ll stay in Athens for the next few days, before I figure out which is the best platform to go on sharing our New Zealand memories, as this blog has almost reached its maximum storage space.

Meanwhile, let’s bid farewell to the City with the most New Yorky picture of them all:

Good bye New York City, thank you for four amazing years!

Tears in rain

In memory of Rutger Hauer, who acted in more films than I would care to count, but will forever be remembered in our hearts as Roy Batty, the terrifying yet poetic replicant fighting against ”retirement” – which in the dystopian world of Blade Runner, meant quite simply ”his life”.

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Time to die.

As fate would have it, Rutger Hauer died on 19 July 2019 – the same year that Roy was ”retired”.
