I drove out the the desert with some friends in the middle of a heatwave. The good part was that there wasn’t a soul out there. The bad part was 30 mph winds smacking us in the face with 115 degree heat. It was so hot that the coolant in the Jeep was boiling the whole time.

Science Fiction first contact Urban science fiction

Part of the joy of archaeology is that every artifact tells a story, but not all archaeology requires an ancient site where the scientist carefully brushes dirt away from a fragile find from the deep past. People leave artifacts and other physical remains wherever they go. Even an abandoned house in a crummy part of the city can contain story treasures.

I love lisbon. This is the city I’m going back in my best memories.
I love that this city is so varied. You can find beautiful and old buildings but also you can see places like this. Abandoned and showing that city is alive.
