Travel / Some places that got between me & my beloved blog

Flickr photoIt start­ed in Lon­don. I was there for, wow, how long? Three days? Seemed like three weeks. Cold, rainy, dark at 4pm, transcon­ti­nen­tal trav­el, Ambi­en, fish & chips, trucks unload­ing just out­side the win­dow the Radis­son all night long. I wasn't sure if I was sick, tired, both, half-awake, or what. Good times, as always. Thanks, Lon­don.


Flickr photoOn to Paris, where there was a rail strike going on. We were here for a total of 24 hours, maybe, but it was AWESOME. Amaz­ing light, cool old peo­ple, and insom­nia just meant that I got up ear­ly enough to get some good pic­tures of the sun­rise. Is it impos­si­ble to take a bad pic­ture here? Cham­pagne bot­tle on the curb. A not-so-inter­est­ing sub­ject, unless it is backed by the win­ter light of PARIS. I took like 500 pic­tures on the trip, 5 of which were good and they were all in Paris.

Flickr photoFinal­ly, Poland. These are spar­rows, I think, swirling around a big plaza in the mid­dle of War­saw. Trip­py.


Flickr photoA cou­ple weeks after I got back from Europe, and just as I was emerg­ing from an Ambi­en haze, I went to India for a cou­ple of days. Just, you know, to check it out. Was two days real­ly long enough to take it all in? Maybe not. Bet­ter make it three so I make sure I see every­thing. In real­i­ty, I was there to teach a class, and I would have loved to stay longer. Instead, I left imme­di­ate­ly after so that I could attend …


Flickr photoAdlai and Shinobu's wed­ding! Good times. To be hon­est, it was also a bit of blur, but I remem­ber enjoy­ing every wak­ing moment, even if those moments were tech­ni­cal­ly half-wak­ing.


Flickr photoFor the hol­i­days, Hawaii. I did some choco­late-mak­ing with Mara and her fam­i­ly. I drank that milk­shake, for sure.


Flickr photoThis crazy rock was last seen on the beach in the cen­tral coast of Cal­i­for­nia, north of San­ta Cruz and near some moan­ing ele­phant seals.
