10 years ago I had just started my PhD and was having one of the best summers ever!
5 years ago I had just finished my PhD and was having yet another amazing summer travelling around the world.
This year the UK summer weather has been exceptionally good and thank god I am not working it away indoors in an office! And so just like my sweet summer off last year this one is actually an improvement 🙂
The Band is Back in Town!
DonkeyBox has been on a rocky practice road over the last few months but lately with all 4 of us being in London, we got the baby back on the road. The result…our first gig in 4 months last Friday the 16th of July. Once again, it was blinding in all ways and I got a real surprise visit from friends I haven’t seen in 11 years!
This must have been the only year for quite a while where it hasn’t rained at Wimbledon for all two weeks. This was my fifth visit to Wimbledon and the most eventful for sure! I saw world famous batsmen Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara having lunch together at the VIP area. And for the first time I even got a late Centre Court ticket..Andy Murray was playing and at the atmosphere in there cannot be described…absolutely electric..and then some! Even the security staff were cheering him on. What a great feeling….while it lasted anyway.
BBC Production Studios
And the glamour does not stop here…I actually went backstage at a BBC live show on the Asian Radio Network where my good friend does a regular monthly slot. They were a really cool bunch running the show and it was real teamwork and communication but in a fun sort of way. And I even met the DJ dude who was taking care of the show, who I will try and convince to come to a DonkeyBox gig soon enough. Watch this space 🙂
