Boarding At Baker

22.02.2008 in Locale, People

For the past several years we’ve been heading up to Whistler in Vancouver, B.C. to go skiing/snowboarding at one of the best mountains in North America. It’s almost always been worth it (well, except for the year I bought a 5 day Edge Pass and…

Remembering Everest

11.01.2008 in Culture, Locale, People

I was a little surprised yesterday to receive an email requesting permission to use one of my photos for a “news” article! This request came via Flickr’s messaging system from another Flickr user claiming to represent a crowdsourced news organization that creates its stories from…

Cock Fireworks In India

07.01.2008 in Culture, Locale

It warms the cockles of my heart to know that I’m not the only person immature enough (or just still connected to my inner teenage boy) to get a giggle and a kick out of Cock Fireworks… it must be the intersection of the low…

We’ve been home for a week now, so what gives? Where’s the final update to the cliff hanger I left last week? Don’t worry… we weren’t abducted out in the middle of Bihar, India. We didn’t miss our flight or overstay our visa. I’ve just…

Lake Cities In Rajasthan

08.11.2007 in Culture, Locale

Wandering In The Desert

06.11.2007 in Culture, Locale

After our last post and a good night’s sleep we set out to see Jaisalmer for the day. The fort is expansive, full of winding alleys where you can easily get lost, but every street seemed to lead back to our hotel anyway. The shop…

(Not) So Close To Home

31.10.2007 in Culture, Locale

We felt a great sense of relief as we were dropped off at Tribhuvan “International” airport by our Nepali guide and were back on our own and on our way to Delhi. I put international in quotes because this airport isn’t a hub that is…

Namaste, Welcome to Nepal

29.10.2007 in Culture, Locale

As quickly as we descended from Everest base camp (5200 meters) to Zhang Mu (2500 meters) in a day, we found ourselves nearly at sea level in about another day. The shock of crossing the border from China into Nepal was just about as drastic….

Off The Grid

21.10.2007 in Culture, Locale

We are now in Kathmandu, Nepal and have a ton of great photos and interesting stories to tell, but we have limited time and may not be able to get onto the internet for a few days as we are flying off into the jungle…
