Napoleon of our times…

Napoleon’s daily routine rarely varied, He had the ability to doze and wake at will..


The concept of Siesta is not that odd, a classic cat nap or Power Nap is always known to provide health benefits. In New York, a company called MetroNaps has opened a branch in the Empire State Building, charging patrons US$14 for the use of facilities (semi-enclosed ‘capsule’ lounge chairs) for a brief power nap….

So, times vary, places vary but the needs remain common…

    Right around 16.00 hours, most of us start running out of steam. The English get their ritual dosing of Caffeine around then. (Time for Tea!) In Spain they follow the body’s need for adequate rest at that hour. The shops close for a bit and pretty much everybody gets the chance for a quick, but effective nap! Nice to see that Bangaloreans follow the latter example.
    Nothing beats a nice afternoon period of “shut-eye”!
    Incidentally, that looks like a cosy place to do it. Couldn’t figure out if that’s rice or flour as the makeshift bed. Either one would work well. :)

    Doesn’t sleep unite us all? Once asleep, does it really matter if you are in a 5 star hotel or on sacks of rice?

    Nice pic. :)
