This was a serendipitous find in Cologne; a genuine tower from Roman times. It appeared to be joined to the adjacent building – so had enjoyed continuous use and maintenance.

I love the built in patterns in the brick work. Why can’t we show such care and attention to detail in our modern buildings? Compared to the building on the left of the picture – I know which style I prefer….

Monkey Grooming


I posted a video of a Brazilian squirrel grinding a nut open. The same day, I also saw these tiny monkeys grooming each other. For by Brazilian friends, both videos were shot in Cotia, outside São Paulo.
