4th of July for everyone, except for Americans

Our son came to me this morning, and asked me this: Is it the 4th of July for everyone, or just in America? Me: Well, everyone has the 4th of July. It’s just a bigger deal for people in the United States. I checked my watch, and noticed that it was 06:49 (we’re UTC+3) Me: […]

Penguins on ice

We’re at the tail end of our Australian visit. I have a pretty large collection of photos from our trip which I’ll probably share soonish. In the meantime, here’s a fun photo of penguins at the Sea Life Aquarium in Melbourne.

Storm rolling over the Hong Kong airport

Fireworks for Israel 71st Independence Day Celebrations

Tragedy and Inspiration in Jerusalem

My friend visited me recently, and I took some time off to spend with him. One of our day trips was to Jerusalem, primarily to visit Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center. We started off by taking a relatively new train to Jerusalem from the Ben Gurion Airport. This train takes about half an […]

Whale bones and shadows

We have a curious structure in one of our city parks that’s a little controversial. Some people really don’t like it, most aren’t sure what it’s supposed to represent.
