February + March Update

Let's see, where did I leave off in February?

Oh yeah. I got back from China and was actually in NorCal for a few weeks. This bliss was interrupted by a weeklong trip to (suburban) Chicago for a work conference. The picture below basically sums that trip up:

Snow and boredom.

I was home barely 48 hours when I headed out for Seoul and more meetings. This was simply boring. Not even photo worthy as I basically walked between my hotel and the office for four days.

Escaping the cold in Seoul, I flew down to Hong Kong for, yes, more meetings. At least the weather was quite better, so I could at least get out and see some nightlife. I hadn't been to Hong Kong for several years, so I just wandered around for the most part.

The one highlight of this whole trip was a touristy trip to the top of Hong Kong island (The Peak) to have dinner. As I didn't have to expense the beer nor the food, it was quite enjoyable.

That pretty much ended the international part of my travel. Unfortunately, I had one more set of meetings down in Santa Cruz. Once that was done, I have basically been home. Except last weekend's trip to New Orleans, which would be a entirely different post.

Louie in the Snow, originally uploaded by /k.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but I have been toggling between crazy busy on travel and completely lazy at home. However, when I saw that the good people at Flickr had added video for their Pro accounts, I figured it was a good chance to hoist some more dog videos on you.

Above is a video of Louiedog running through the snow near Sierra at Tahoe around Christmas 2007. As he was originally from Nevada City (which is about the same altitude), he seems completely unfazed by the snow.

I'll post something tomorrow to update you on my latest exploits. Probably with video.
