empty plate win

I had tried having some food the day before. Went to a restaurant. Ordered the usual. Took a few bites. Then had to stop. I wasn’t ready yet. So today, having had a semi good night’s sleep, I was looking forward to eating. I took my selfie: Then I went back to bed and worked […]


the best drink in the world

Here’s the thing about staying in bed all day and generally sleeping a lot: it often means that you can’t sleep at night. Well, go figure! When I woke up after another basically sleepless night, I felt just as shitty as the day before. So I decided to stay in bed again, only this time, […]

I had been feeling that cold creeping up for a long time now. Like that day about a week earlier when I decided to drink a cup of lemon water. And now it was finally here, the cold: Head, sinuses, throat. There wasn’t much sleep that night. So I stayed in bed all day, drifting […]

So again, I woke up and took my selfie: And again, I took a cab to the town that was half an hour away: Only today, the power grid was up, and the photo studio was open. So I went in and got my picture: Then I returned to my project, the sorting and editing […]

I, the person who takes pictures of himself everyday, the guy who is apparently obsessed with selfies, I had to go take another passport photo today. The irony. So I took my selfie: And then I hopped in a cab and rode to the next small town, which was half an hour away: But what […]

The pirates were going to leave today. I felt a bit sad. So we decided to rent a boat and go on a cruise on our own private pirate ship! When it was my turn to stand on the bow, I yelled “I am captain” to the people on the beach until the pirates begged […]


…and thanks for all the corn

Posted on

So I was back in the Say: Today was a particularly good day, because when I went to the shop where I usually bought tomatoes and bread for lunch I saw this: This: THIS: I really love corn. It’s not only one of the tastiest things on the planet, but also one of the most […]


almost too dark

When I woke up in the morning, I apologized in case I had been snoring all night. One could never know. The others said it was alright, and I left, not knowing if “alright” meant that I hadn’t been snoring or that they simply didn’t mind. Then I went and took care of my things, […]

I got a call today that prompted me to go back to Bishkek and take care of some business. So I took my daily photo: And then I showered, put on some fresh clothes, grabbed my toothbrush and a candy bar, and then I stepped out the door. I came back five minutes later and […]


4.5 billion sunsets

Posted on

I just googled “how old is the earth”. Thankfully, the search mask has a feature where it provides you with the answer that is most likely to be correct, without you having to click on any links. The correct answer is: the earth is approximately 4.5 billion years old. I say “thankfully”, because the top […]


new weird beard

Posted on

Still waiting: Still enjoying the good life on the beach with the pirates: And yes, still eating a lot of watermelons. Oh, and I started working on a new video: I’d been taking daily pictures, and now that I had the time, I sat down to do some sorting and editing: Tedious work, I can […]
