The Real Life Dear Esther

One of the reasons for me being a bit inactive lately is that I’ve been on holiday! I arrived in Stanstead yesterday evening after being in Sardinia for 6 wonderful days. The weather- oh the weather! The markedly un-British weather!

Anyways, I travelled with my family (minus my brother, who was napping at our residence after being heat-stricken) to a small ghost town called Argentiera. There was almost nobody about, and silence of it all reminded me terribly ofย Dear Esther‘s Hebrides. The barren architecture and the abandoned silver mines (of which fuelled and then spurned the town’s economy around the 1960s) reminded me of that game’s eerie spirit. Thought I’d share with all you gamer nerds!
