Domes, Shafts and Columns
Bushes, Flagpoles, Chimneys, Penguin Arms, Elephant trunks, Church Steeples... even the figure of the El Templo nightclub has 5 phallus' for fingers! That, or maybe they just happen to be shaped that way with no forethought of a penis? Unique pics of the scenes of Punta Arenas!

Bitter? Hardly. Enjoying life? Definitely.

Man you are bitter. It is a petty that you can 't enjoy life.

Great Blogs & Pics
Well done Jabe - I've enjoyed several of your blogs both before and during my current travels. That's a great New York description - I spent time and almost ended up working there myself a few years ago... you've reminded me why I'm so glad that I didn't!! Thanks also for your Luang Prabang, Laos blog - which is where I am currently - just reviewing options to Thailand without doing that hellish Mekong trip you describe so well! Have fun in BA - was there in December and loved it along with all of South America. Happy Travels. Nacho.

Thanks for giving us such a clear picture of New York, John. Although not from New York, I am currently much in the same position you were in at the end of 2005....watch this space for my future travel blogs...:)

Cheer up mate
Hey Jabe, Nice to see this I agree with the girl from chigago the pictures are special. But I was concerned to see no smile in front of the GGB. You have been travelling around the world for 2 years, lived and worked in NY & Tokyo and still no smile. cheerup :)

Great blog!
SF is by far my favorite city and like you, I'd love to settle there. So I just wanted to drop a note and say I really enjoyed reading this blog, especially your photos. I'm sure next time I'm there I'll see it a bit different thanks to your photos. I love the focus you give to design and shape in your pictures. :)

Great pictures!
Thanks for the walk down memory lane. A few years ago a friend and I spent a weekend in Ronda and loved every minute of it- even getting ripped off by the one taxi driver who decided to work that day. I also loved the description of your sister's artifacts. Your photos are amazing! Carolyn ( blogger name 'gunga')

Great photos!
I love the bulls-eye window, have never seen anything like that before. I aspire to take better architectural photographs, so looking at photos like yours gives me ideas.

Ah the memories...
Great blog - brought back memories of my trip on the trans-mong last year ... though looks like you had a nicer compartment and an easier time crossing the Mongolian/Russian border! Enjoy the rest of your travels! E

onward to Kazakhstan !
all the signs seem to point towards your next trip being in a landrover (painted in a union jack perhaps?) bound for Kazakhstan.

" think I have 1 more year in me - then it'll be time for something different. " You can't give up now......we're all enjoying your blog too much! I suppose it gets quite lonely out there sometimes though.....especially round Christmas time. Hope you had a great Christmas! Johan from South Africa

I want to visit China for the '08 olympics. Would you recommend this? Beijing seems like a fascinating city! Thanks for sharing. www.vacationcentric.com

Love the pictures!
First of all... your pictures are amazing. I went to Beijing last year and my pictures all resembles yours, but they are not nearly as good looking! I like your eye for the details. Also, thanks for sharing the story. It made me reflect on my time in Beijing. I actually feel like I missed some things now. Did you have a tour guide? It seems like you know a little about the history behind some of the monuments... very helpful as well. One more thing, where did you go at night? You said the nightlife was not too great there, but I actually enjoyed it. I now live in a city near Shanghai and I can tell you that the Beijing nightlife is definitely better as far as variety and culture. Did you go to Vic's or Nick's? Thanks for sharing! KANGOGRL

You must be on a very tight budget to have that kind of accommodation. Baguio City has hundreds of good hotels and inns. Some are even better than those found in Europe & North America.
