I forgot to put this up the other day when we talked to them (I am a bit like that as you know). The two Dublin guys who have mapped the quickest way from one place to another in Dublin using public transport. This magnificent feat has been achieved with only them, a lot of time, a laptop, a GPS unit and the top seat on many, many Dublin buses. Genii. http://www.justroutes.com I had forgotten all about it. Thanks Al!
You HAVE to read Salman Rushdie’s Shalimar The Clown. The first book probably since The Time Traveller’s Wife that I’ve marked pages to read and re-read again. You HAVE to read this again: http://rickoshea.wordpress.com/2007/11/20/salman-rushdie-rocks/ Please 🙂 “To love was to risk your life, she thought….” Never truer words said in fiction. The new book? Total different kettle of fish. Raymond Chandler’s prose is so beautiful I’m making painfully slow progress. Mostly because I want to re-read whole pages again he writes so creatively! Will report later.
Knowing my love of architecture, Foster and Gaudi I’m shocked that I haven’t posted this here yet. This is Norman Foster’s new design for the new Nou Camp (so good they named it twice) Their site is here: http://www.fosterandpartners.com/Projects/1552/Default.aspx
