What can I say about Chicago except that it’s one of my favorite cities? Do I need to tell you that it’s home to almost ten million people and the third-largest city in the U.S.? Do I need to mention that it has the second busiest airport in the world? No. You can read all that on Wikipedia. I’ll just let these impressions speak for themselves.

Fiji impressions

leave a comment »

I was able to spend two weeks in Fiji in 2013. It was an amazing experience. Loving, friendly people, beautiful beaches, unbelievable coral reefs and colorful tropical gardens.
But Fiji is also one of those places where the luxury of the tourist resorts is worlds apart from how the locals live. Towns like Nadi and Lautoka are sad and uneventful places. Life’s no beach for the people of Fiji.

Say ‘cheese’, USA

This past weekend was rained out and I was basically locked up inside. So I slept in, surfed the net and enjoyed not having an agenda.

My only activity was putting together a Soundslides presentation of pictures I took during recent trips to the U.S.

Please click on the photo below to get the show going.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Pictures taken in the Florida Everglades in January of 2010. Slideshow created with ‘Soundslides’. Since ‘Soundslides’ cannot be embedded in ‘wordpress’, the slideshow had to be converted to a video (420 x 361 pixels) with ‘vodpod’, which was then embedded here.
