Since it was raining, I was not so sure if I wanted to get off and run in the rain to get in the store. Suddenly I noticed this spectacular view on the windshield. It was … Continue reading Master Stroke of Nature

These two elderly people moved to the United States of … Continue reading Will to Live in Wilderness

Last week Wednesday night was an adventuresome expedition for me. I went with bunch of friends for frogging different species in the vernal pond. That was my first experience ever and was a part of an class assignment in the Field Ecology. It was 9 pm and no other sounds besides frogs’ could be heard nearby the pond.
