I spent a lovely week in Cornwall over Christmas seeing my Mum each day and visiting various towns and villages near the Lizard where I was staying. The harbour at Coverack by night was a magical scene with Christmas lights and decorations illuminating the small fishing boats in the harbour.

We ventured into St Ives for dinner, settling on an extremely tasty Mexican. Mmm mojitos, nachos and fajitas!

Reflections

... is easy to believe that the all-pervasive chaos of the streets, the corruption that exists at every level from ministers of state down to the policeman who accepts a 200 rupee bribe for a traffic offence, the disproportionate lifestyle of the very rich and the very poor are all indications of a society in terminal decline. This would be to misconstrue the pragmatism and patience of a people that is consciously moving towards a democracy that many think will ...
