Five minutes

December 15 – 5 Minutes Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010.

The moment I held my Theseus, bound and looking like a real book, in my hands and knew that I’d actually accomplished something in my life, something no one could take away.

The first glimpse of the Acropolis from the cab window.

The day I spent in Alnwick in October, in an adorable cafe with great soup and a good book.

The best brownie from the street vendor near King’s Cross in London.

The feeling I had while walking around the Christmas market in Manchester with Chandra - the anticipation of going home coupled with the excitement of a new place.

The smell of salt water and the crashing of waves. At the North Sea. In Crete. In Ocean City.

My best friend’s laughter, and how right it felt to see her every day.

The way the mountains looked at Delphi.

The best food I’ve ever had at a small restaurant in Rome.

Sunsets. Over bridges, mountains, hills, tall buildings, landmarks.

The sunrise over the Nile from a hot air balloon.
