Stuck Trolley

Spotted this abandoned trolley on an escalator that was switched off, at Cape Town International Airport. It seems that the escalator stopped working while people were on it, and I get an amusing picture of the chaos caused by the stoppage, especially in trying to offload the trolley!

Movie: The Hunger Games

Jennifer Lawrence reprises a role similar to her role in Winter Bone - the teenage heroine, overcoming the odds, doing the dirty work when needed, to protect her younger siblings. The Hunger Games though is a much more interesting story, really well constructed, and well paced. And it is the story that makes this movie great - the acting is quite good - but the story is impressive. I am not sure how true it is to the book; but like The Game of Thrones, the screen adaptation has made me want to read the book.
