Something to think about

I stumbled upon this "philosophical" quote in the toilet of the Hanoi Rock Club. I thought: Hmm that's an interesting way to define time while relieving yourself, if you ever think about time while doing it. So on my second visit to the WC, I brought my camera with me. While a bunch of "happy" girls were waiting outside, I was trying to get a nice shot of the wall. 
Is time really the fire in which we burn? I don't really know, and to be honest I hope not. Because if it is so, it's a long and painful process. Anyway, the poet Delmore Schwartz apparently believes it does! 
On another note, I've been touring the Mekong Delta (southern Vietnam) with Manu on a red motorbike. I will not be able to update the blog until next week probably. I will definitely post some pictures when I'm back to Ha Noi. Until then Happy Lunar New Year of the Rabbit!
