Such good brain-food
Final lunch in London, last year
So I just learnt that Indonesia has over 17,000 islands. That’s certainly a lot.
“According to a 2002 survey by National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN), the Indonesian archipelago has 18,307 islands. According to the CIA factbook there are 17,000 islands. 8,844 islands have been named according to estimates made by the Government of Indonesia, with 922 of those permanently inhabited.”
I love how it’s just an estimate how many have been named.
Great video of London in 1927, in colour no less. Very different, very the same
The old and the new, the dark and the light, the hidden and the shown
Love, love, love the night scenes with the stars twirling like a single platter in the background
