So this is a very very old picture, but it immediately came to mind.  I know it’s small and bad quality, but give me a break, it was taken as a quick reaction on my first camera phone, back in 2004.  On the terrace outside of my apartment, we looked from the living room one afternoon and saw this.  The squirrel is not dead, it seems to have simply decided to partake in some relaxation with the terrace’s bar cooling its belly.

Still, it’s hilarious to look at, I think.



Hi all, my name is Ben. I’m a native Michigander with a passion for human culture and new places, and more than that, new experiences. I have degrees in archaeology and writing, pursuing a career in the latter. However, I never quite lost that fascination for archaeological theory. For the past 9 years, I’ve been living and travelling in Asia, documenting ancient sites and the peoples who built them, and then adapting them into practical archaeological travel information at
