A wallaby was momentarily lit up in the late afternoon sun.
It wasn’t a great photo but it was a great moment, capturing these motorcycling Santas in Tokyo at Christmas. They seemed happy to be photographed but they didn’t stop for long.
MONGOLIAN WILD BLUBERRY JAM RECIPE
Pick loads of berries from around your campsite – mostly ripe blueberries, but also a few cranberries. Find an old pickle jar near the campsite and cram them in. Bring them back to your campfire. Pick out the leaves and stems. Chuck the whole lot in a pot. Mash them up a bit. Add 30 cubes of sugar. All those sugar cubes you brought along so you could share tea with the local nomads. Boil on a campfire until you smell the sweetness of the jam. Scoff as much as you can. Save the rest in a Nalgene bottle to eat on the trail, or to share with the families who invite you inside their yurts.
The glaciers make patterns in the ice.
