"Now I’m back and our roles are somewhat reversed. Like River Song and the Doctor, we meet again under different circumstances."
"The soundtrack of the day was Radioactivity by Kraftwerk, as we rolled into Chernobyl this morning."

"One of the advantages of repeated visits to a place is the leisure pace of awe and discovery while drifting slowly down the worn streets of the French capital."
