Our first home

A long time has gone by since we used to exchange telegrams via regular mail. For urgent matters ONLY, and better stick to what’s important because they WILL charge you per word. But lately, the whole concept of telegram has suffered a change. Suffice it to type “t e l e g r a m” […]

What in the world am I doing here?

Ok, so I must admit that the title of this blog is mostly click-bait. Having never done any sort of blogging before, I thought I would follow the seemingly standard way for news organizations to get page views nowadays. Although I chose the slightly sensationalistic title, there is a bit of realism to that self-reflective […]
