Seems chaotic but is actually quite beautiful — everything flows like water. I just wish the photos could convey the ceaseless honking.

It’s not hard to find someone to mend a shirt or sew a button on in India –  I loved all the craftsmen plying their trade in the open.

Traffic in India   2 comments

Traffic in India was amazing – despite the lack of adherence to rules, it flowed like water. If you want to make a U-turn, you just pull into oncoming traffic, which slows down without any discernible annoyance. If you want to cross the street, you simply step out and traffic will veer around you (scary, but it works!).

“Take a ride on the Reading”   Leave a comment

After visiting the Reading Terminal in Philadelphia you’ll never look at that Monopoly chance card the same way again. The train station has been converted into a market for regional foods many years ago, and I enjoyed a couple of lunches (cheese steak!!) there this past week while attending a conference at the convention center next door.

I know that title is an oxymoron, given what is going on in this city these days, but it didn’t seem to bother these two as they enjoyed a quiet Friday evening sunset over the Lincoln Memorial.

Cherry Blossom Time!   Leave a comment

Walked to the Mall after work on Friday and captured these photos. A wonderful time to be in DC, except this year it’s unseasonably cold. Nevertheless, the water’s edge was packed with tourists (i.e. camera-toting) and locals (i.e. picnicking).
