Facebook just reminded me that I posted this picture of Brasov five years ago.
Have I really spent five (six actually) years on Facebook?
What was life like before Facebook?
It's a blur.
What an astonishing thing Facebook is -a box of delights - more interesting in its way even than War and Peace. And War and Peace is the novel I have spent all year crawling through, thanks to the attractions of Facebook.
This picture elicited, by the way, a wonderful comment from Dominic Johnson.
The McDonald's sign is a little like spotting an overturned shopping cart in Constable's The Haywain.
