Internet has become the must-have tool for us over the last few years.
There are so many things that we have learnt to do online, that I reckon it’d be rather difficult for us to go back to our old ways. So, what can we do without any internet access?

For example, meet with friends, finish that book we have been meaning to for ages, watch that movie everybody has been telling you about, cook something nice… I tell you what I did this week after I discovered that our internet connection had gone – Continue reading
Thank God for David Bowie, who lifted us from the drabness of suburbia, and showed us glittering possibilities. Thank God for erotica, exotica, lean, mean, back beat, slim hipswing, saxophone overblown. Thank God for camp, thank God for fabulous hair cut and clothes.

As coffee producers are far from enjoying a comparable lifestyle, I quite like initiatives that help them overcome specific needs. The auction at the London Coffee Week ending today is one of those initiatives. See some pics below. I apologise in advance for the lack of quality.
It was all by chance. Continue reading
Saturday was a great day for those who enjoy music. We celebrated Record Store Day with a variety of free performances and activities across London and other areas in UK. Few things make me feel happier than good (live) music. Music, in London and for a good cause. Simply, brilliant. The video below may give you a feel for it. Continue reading
