SECRETS AND DREAMS: Rakan
*Rakan is the grand master of Brick Lane Bike Polo. Photo by Tom Medwell.
Places I love… It’s hard to pin down, so I guess I’ll say – anywhere along the Thames, canals or little rivers you find in London. I think the presence of water creates a really nice atmosphere and whether semi-rural or densely urban you always find interesting buildings, nooks and crannies near water.
In the future… I guess that I continue to find the things I do exciting and stimulating. In a big picture sense – hmm – that in a collective sense people manage to establish for themselves a decent standard of living based on mutual solidarity in their everyday lives. OK – I hope to get better at making big generalising statements.
Play polo every Sunday after 2pm: Basketball Court, corner of Brick Lane/Shacklewell St, E2 7EG*
does that mean we're all Grand Master Rakan's students? ;-)
Teach us oh wise one!

Sorry, Rakan is cool but that website fucking reeks.

Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
