A sunset in Port Vila, Vanuatu

This was the 12th post (Day 12) of an entire year-long series, which I named ‘Project 365′. The idea was simple enough: travel for a full year and document every day of it, in the form of a daily picture and poem. I am still working on a book of this year-long travel, but till then, enjoy all the posts here. You can check out the daily posts in the details below or jump to the final day of the project by clicking here.

13th July 2014 – Port Vila, Vanuatu

Like dragonflies in the light, they danced with no duress.
Beyond words, beyond questions of tomorrow. Beyond fun.
The future holds a key they can’t see, nor can guess.
But they thrive, because today, they are children of the sun.

The sun called the shots today. – Port Vila, Vanuatu

Another early day, only to see Brazil get thrashed again by the Dutch. Can’t say I can complain, because the Dutch are my favourite European team. Oh Brazil, thy numbers do you, no justice to your past. Maybe you should have heeded to the words of Tyrion Lannister who said ‘keep calm and always pay your debts’.

After the match, went back to sleep a little bit. The afternoon saw me trying to catch up on some well-needed exercise, which I haven’t had since I started travelling. And then stepped out around dusk, to the nearby park, to watch some local lads play rugby. They had invited me yesterday to join them, but I had to refuse today since I was more keen on taking pictures.

The game went long, and I took copious shots, but none good enough to make the ‘pic of the day’. Although, on my way back, saw this little girl ride the swing against the sunlight.

And I knew I had a winner.
