1st March, 2014. 4:15 pm. feeling more productive
this week has been a good one for me - i think the new meds are finally kicking in with providing extra motivation and energy. besides updating the landmark blog on monday (see previous post), i made a pot of butternut squash and kale minestrone soup, and finally got around to making a photobook from our vacation last october - i've decided to break the trip into 3 books for the cruise, so i finished the first book: malaga, casablanca and tangier. and that means i finally got around to posting photos from that part of the trip:
Day 1ish: Arriving in Malaga and exploring the marina, Alcazaba and Gibralfaro
Day 2ish: At Sea aboard the Star Flyer, setting sail from Malaga, and a sea day out in the Atlantic off the coast of Morocco
Day 3: Visiting Casablanca - the Hassan II Mosque, the medina, Mohammed V Square, and more
Day 4: Morning at sea, arriving in Tangier, traveling to Tetouan and walking through the street market and medina, then returning to Tangier
, and setting sail again.
and i made a video of Malaga just now:

24th February, 2014. 5:04 pm. Back to the historical landmark blog
After a few months off (vacation, holidays, etc.) - i got back into the swing of writing up historical landmarks after visiting the Bancroft Ranch House this past weekend on a tour by the San Diego Archaeology Center.
Go check out my write-up of the landmark site
Is this a sign of greater motivation? Perhaps so!

I had an idea for a poem, and so here it is. I'm not really sure if it's a poem or just a story. Maybe it's a prayer. Read at your own risk.( THE WORM IN MY BRAINCollapse )

16th November, 2013. 12:49 pm. Europe 2013: 1 - Malaga
So here's the first batch of photos from our trip to Europe: Our day or so in Malaga, where we arrived and spent a night prior to our cruise departure. Malaga dates back over 3,000 years, and we saw Roman ruins, Moorish castles and gardens, and a cool park and marina front.
30th September, 2013. 5:17 pm. Cabrillo Festival 2013
On Sunday, I attended the 2013 Cabrillo Festival, which celebrates the 1542 landing of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, a Portuguese mariner sailing for Spain, in San Diego Bay. This year marked the fiftieth annual Cabrillo Festival, and it was held at Ballast Point, at Naval Base Point Loma. This is one of the few times the public is allowed on the Navy's base, where the submarine fleet is harbored.
The festival is a celebration of Portuguese, Spanish, Mexican, Native American, and American cultures, completed with music, dance, and food! The highlight of the event is a re-enactment of Cabrillo's landing, with a sailing ship dropping off a longboat, which rows to the shore. Cabrillo, two flagbearers and a priest wade ashore, claim the land through planting the flags and reading a proclamation.

Here's a link to the photos from my trip to Germany, focusing on the non-Star Wars Celebration Europe parts of the trip. There's some shots of traveling via train to Saarlouis (and getting off at the wrong station, Luisenthal), hanging out with Monica and Patrick and the kids in Saarlouis, taking the train up north through Trier and Koblenz to Essen, and a nice dawn walk in the Grugapark in Essen, next to the convention center.Journey to Germany
Not sure why Flickr is having issues with posting directly to LJ.
