Gallery Updated With Philippines Trip Pictures

Wednesday, March 21st, 2007

I’ve uploaded the pictures from our trip to the Philippines during the second half of February. We visited Manila, some sites around there, Dumaguete on Negros, and Alona Beach at Bohol. We dove, saw tarsiers (world’s smallest primate), went to waterfalls and up a river, saw an island on a lake in a volcano on an island in a lake on an island in the ocean, visited the American / Filipino war memorial and cemetary, saw a couple of malls…you know. We explored a bit and relaxed more.

The 2007 02 Philippines gallery awaits your perusal!

Construction Site Fire in Dubai

Tuesday, March 20th, 2007

One of the buildings under construction caught fire this morning. It’s two buildings away from where I work. Here’s the long range view, where we weren’t quite sure exactly which one it was yet.

A couple of shots from around the back. We couldn’t quite get me dropped off at the normal place as the roads were blocked off and some cars were actually flowing back out the wrong way.


City of Dust

Saturday, March 17th, 2007

We’ve been having a nice dusting lately.  You can call it a dust or sand storm, because it’s brought on by high winds coming out of the Empty Quarter over by Saudi Arabia, but it’s not been a high wind situation for the most part.  The dust is primarily just hanging around, not sandblasting you.  The temperatures had also shot up 6-7 degrees Celsius, too.  Here’s a few pictures shot out the window and over the balcony.
