Chaos and Scooters

A man once said there is no order in the universe, it is really all just mad chaos. That man must have lived and driven in Madras! Actually, and surprisingly, there is some sort of order to India that I… Continue Reading →

Culture Shock. Madras, India.

I can’t believe what is happening to me. I’m in the midst of severe culture shock. I’m in Madras, probably one of the nicest cities in India, and I’m completely and absolutely overwhelmed. I’m having trouble writing down my experiences… Continue Reading →

Nashville, Tennessee

In 1996 I spent time in Nashville Tennessee doing forensic training. I decided to post some photos from that time. Most photos are of the Opryland Hotel, which the next post talks about. I was in Tennessee in February; so,… Continue Reading →

Capitol Hill Area, Seattle

When we awoke, “Jimi Hendrix” was outside the window playing his guitar and walking from place to place chatting with people though windows. We made a quick trip to the grocery store and got the necessary ingredients to make avocado… Continue Reading →

Seattle, Washington

On a whim, we decided to do a last minute impromptu trip to Seattle, Washington. Getting there wasn’t hard: we hopped on an overnight bus from Calgary to Vancouver and then caught a bus from Vancouver to Seattle. It was… Continue Reading →
