This is a different urban owl from the one that escaped from the Central Park Zoo earlier this month. His name is Flaco and capturing him has proved elusive. He seems to be thriving in the 'wilds' of Central Park and has acquired quite a few fans.

I think you might want to bring your own cushion.

The Açores are roughly 1,400 km west of Lisbon, 1,500 km northwest of Morocco, and 1,930 km southeast of Newfoundland, Canada.
There is something a little unsettling to me about living on an island in the middle of the Atlantic.

In 1959, it was 10 years since NATO was formed. I've always found it aesthetically pleasing that the English and French acronyms are a palindrome.

St Mark's Church, Zagreb first built in the 13th century but radically reconstructed over the centuries. The roof tiles with the coat of arms of Zagreb and the kingdoms of Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia are particularly eye-catching.
