"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Home From Home


It looked rather like home,



It felt almost like home.



Though this was not Kerala but Cornwall.



I was beneath no tropical canopy



But instead: the geodesic domes of the Eden Project.



A welcome break from the near-arctic climate of England in June!

  2. Displaced igloos… Of course! That explains it.

    It is an amazing project. I would love to visit it but feel I wouldn’t be able to walk much of it.

    • Access is relatively easy but the crowds on a wet summer’s day are not inconsiderable!
      Out of season, it’s enjoyable enough. Though maybe you wouldn’t exactly be overwhelmed…
