There is one thing I like from my social media timeline: people posting their travel photos and stories. I am kind of addicted to look at their pictures and read their stories.

These past five days, the world has been in a deep grief following the siege in Martin Place, Sydney, Australia, and an abrupt massacre at a supported-by-military high school in Peshawar, Pakistan (Yet the not-yet-solved case in Palestine and other cases in the other parts of the world).
