The ruins of Augusta Raurica – 3


One of the exits from the amphitheatre, the walk out today leads to this :


Imagine having your morning coffee in that little balcony every day, looking at the entrance to an historic stage…..


About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  1. The first picture weirdly took me back to Jalianwala Bagh . One lucky bunch of people who live in those homes .

    • There is a similarity, true…And they are lucky, seriously lucky. I hope I get the chance to spend a few years there (the slightest of chance, but why not think of it?). 🙂

      • This exit looks wider though and I can’t imagine getting a shot of Jalianwala Bagh without a dozen people in the frame . I wish your wish comes true . More bread baking and sausages and lots of chocolate too . Who wouldn’t want that ?

      • It isn’t that much wider, though people are always there in every shot in India. 🙂
        Thank you, I hope that might happen too!
