Robert Kennedy is shot dead





Senator Robert Kennedy was shot and fatally wounded shortly after giving a victory speech to celebrate his win in the California Primary in a Los Angeles hotel. The 42-year-old senator was greeting hotel workers while being escorted through the pantry of the Ambassador Hotel when a gunman, named as Palestinian immigrant Sirhan Sirhan, fired shots from a .22 calibre gun. Mr Kennedy was on his way to a press conference in the hotel. His elder brother President John Kennedy was assassinated in 1963 as he travelled in an open-top car in Dallas.

NYC - Midtown West: Mé Bar




NYC - Midtown West: Mé Bar





La Quinta Manhattan
17 W. 32nd St., 14th fl., New York, NY 10001

At the rooftop bar of the La Quinta budget hotel in Koreatown, the drinkers—at least, the ones who aren't tourists—are evenly divided between newbies saying "I can’t believe I didn't know about this spot" and old hands nodding knowingly and saying "Yeah, this is my little secret." Indeed it's hard to believe that anything offering such a picture-perfect worm's-eye view of the Empire State Building illuminating the surrounding water tanks would be a secret, but come here after work and you'll likely have one of the round tables all to yourself. The deck isn't much bigger than the average tenement roof, but with broad wood planks, white-painted benches around the perimeter, and folding chairs and umbrellas, it's an effortless simulation of a Hamptons boardwalk. A folder full of delivery menus (plenty of good Korean food around, of course) compensates for the lack of grill. The bar, located in a narrow glass enclosure that provides seating during the winter, is small but adequate, and the drinks are reasonably priced considering the prime realty.

Postcard obtained 1969, Wentworth Hotel, West 46th Street, New York





Caption says;

"AAA Wentworth Hotel, 59 West 46th Street, New York City, Phone JU 2-2200

Centrally located in the heart of Manhattan, just off 5th Avenue, 2 blocks from Radio City, and Times Square Theatre Area.
100% air conditioned, 21" Television and radio in all rooms.
Restaurant, bar and Cocktail Lounge. Barber Shop and Manicurist. Family Rates Available."

2 young men of about 21 men were introduced to New York customs early. The receptionist absolutely insisted we should have a porter to carry our bags to our room - no other option! The old guy seemed about 80 and it was warm. We thought he'd pass out. We were on a very tight budget, but he had to be tipped.

The noisy air conditioning kept us awake all night!

World War ll London Blitz Diary (A Woman's Revelations Enduring War and Marriage) (1939-1940)



Imagine yourself seeing hundreds of Messerschmitt war planes overhead and hearing the explosion of bombs being dropped around you. Wondering if this is the day one will fall on your house.

Ruby Side Thompson’s personal diary was written during the terrifying World War Two London Blitz. Her diary is a true and detailed account of what she experienced during that horrific time. The diary chronicles Ruby's struggle to survive in the midst of a horrendous war, where London is bombed nightly.

Ruby speaks candidly about her unhappiness enduring an unsatisfactory marriage. She was the mother of seven sons, two of whom were enlisted in the R.A.F. One of which became an amputee as the result of hitting a land mine and the other son was captured and sent to a concentration camp as a prisoner of war. Her tale is a mix of the commonplace and the historic as seen through her eyes.

The diary was an outlet for Ruby’s thoughts and feelings that could not be spoken out loud; however, in publishing the diary it gives readers an honest and unfiltered look back at a time that may have been long since forgotten.

Join Ruby on her trying journey as she tries to keep her life and family together during this difficult time in history.

This is volume one of a four volume series written by Ruby Alice Side Thompson.

World War II London Blitz Diary, Volume 2, 1941 (A Woman's Revelations Enduring War and Marriage)






This Diary was written during the World War two London Blitz years by a woman experiencing the nightly terrifying bombings. The diary reveals what the average Londoner experienced during that time; events that today have been forgotten or lost to younger generations. The diary was not written for publication but as an outlet for the author's thoughts and feelings that could not be spoken.
"September 21, 1941 . . . We are hypnotized by propaganda; by the impact of particular places and persons; by religion, by war, and by ourselves, by our own terrible easy suggestibility. We are sheep, dumb fool sheep. Consider this huge derision of patriotism and of war.
As I looked over Kent yesterday, so peaceful, all the harvest in, so green, so quiet, the sense of the folly of the war enveloped me ever more tightly and suffocating then in Blitzed London. Much of London is offensive to the sight, so that when one sees portions of it utterly destroyed unconsciously one is reconciled to the destruction. . . . The further I went from London the more I was convinced that war is only made by the few bad men in power, for their own profit. War pays the armament makers. The puzzle is: Why do common men obey the warlords? Why? Because they are hypnotized by words, deluded by propaganda and patriotism. Oh God! What fools men are!
. . . One thing I determined, and that is, to guard my own mind. That seems the most important thing to me today, to protect my mind and to keep out the crazy propaganda and all the world’s false beliefs. The everlasting verities, those are what I want to discern and the realities, and mainly the beautiful and good realities. War is a reality and Hitler is a reality, but neither Hitler nor war is enduring; both will pass away, but the grass will remain, beauty will remain."

Deer in the Chair




Deer in the Chair





Some people ask - Is this a real deer sitting in the chair? .. or has this been photoshoped?? No I can tell you that this was a real deer, because I raised her. Her name was Angel, and we've raised many over the years. Our main goal was not to have them as pets, but because they were orphaned, we raised them until approximately 11-12 months old. Then we just let them go on our property.

Angel was the tamest of all of the deer that we've raised. She was born in 1994, and she lived for 14 years. She would come into the house if you left the front door open... and come sit in "her" chair. She did this from early in her life. You could say, "the Queen was in her chair."

Ottawa Convention Centre




Ottawa Convention Centre





The new Ottawa Convention which reopened this year, was built on the old site, with a major expansion and sporting this new glass facade. I really like this new look as it really adds much vibrancy and elegance to the downtown core of what is an otherwise conservative core.

Much better for the soul and eyes in the lightbox

This is Hall E at the Minneapolis convention center, all set up for a girl's gymnastics meet. I love the architecture of the convention center. Each of the main halls has the dome ceiling, which looks a little like a UFO space ship to me.

Colonia Tovar Venezuela




Colonia Tovar Venezuela





Este pintoresco pueblo en las montanas de Aragua, fundado por inmigrantes alemanes en 1843, ha sido un destino turistico de preferencia para residentes de Caracas, Maracay y Valencia desde mediados del siglo pasado cuando se termino la via asfaltada de acceso. Con poco tiempo detras del volante se puede disfrutar una escapada a "otro pais", con su arquitectura y comida tipica de Alemania, el clima fresco, comprar verduras y frutas como fresas y duraznos sacadas de las huertas alrededores apenas a horas antes de la venta.

Siempre he recomendado el acceso via La Victoria en vez de por El Junquito, siendo mucho mas lindo y sin las colas tediosas de los fines de semana. En estos dias, la mayoria de los hoteleros exigen reservacion previa y estadia minima de dos noches. Entre semana, no hay este requisito; es ideal para un relax sin gentio, y muchas opciones ofrecen descuentos.



VIA LA VICTORIA-COLONIA TOVAR En el sector La Florida, una nueva oferta simple es Cabanas Nakoke (0244-355.1372) con cuatro unidades dentro del mismo modulo, todas para cuatro con cocina, bano/agua caliente y chimenea (Temp. baja entre semana/fines de semana/Temp. alta - BsF 280/300/400).

Tambien nueva en esta via es La Residenza Verona Cabana (0243-431.4354). Como tantas ofertas mal identificadas, no son cabanas, sino cuartos agradables con bano/agua caliente, neverita, cafetera, TV por cable, mesa y sillas (Para 2-3, Temp. baja/alta - BsF 200/350).

En el sector Viejo Liceo, otra opcion nueva es Danubio Azul (0416-847.8698), con posada, restaurante, bar y abasto. Debido a su ubicacion a 300 m del pueblo, es mas facil subir desde el desvio hacia Cruz Verde de la via El Calvario-El Museo que bajar desde Cruz Verde. Se ofrecen 16 cuartos simples (para 2-4 - BsF 250) y dos apartamentos (con cocinita mas comedor y dos cuartos matrimoniales, bano/agua caliente, TV por cable - Temp. baja/alta - BsF 350/400). Hay una sala de estar compartida con chimenea. El precio de los cuartos incluye desayuno, pero solo para dos.

Economico, en el sector San Jose, son Cabanas Don Keller (0416-230.6178). En vez de cabanas, hay cuatro simples pero comodos apartamentos triples con cocina - Temp. baja/alta - BsF 200/300), y varios cuartos normales (para 2 - BsF 150/200); todos con bano/agua caliente, TV por cable.

En la carretera principal bajando hacia el pueblo en el sector El Calvario, una hermosa alternativa nueva es Posada La Lugarena (por Rsvnes.: 0244-355.1092). Hay cinco cuartos matrimoniales y un "chalet" con tres camas individuales, todos con bano/agua caliente, toallas grandes, secador de pelo, cafetera (con cafe, azucar, cafe con leche instantaneo), radio-despertador, TV satelital/DVD, lenceria de cama y muebles de primera, WiFi. El precio incluye desayuno; almuerzo/cena estan disponibles por encargo (Temp. baja/alta: para 2 - BsF 550/600, chalet - BsF 650/700). La casa tiene dos acogedoras areas de sala con chimeneas. Se alquila por dia (BsF 200) un caney grande con parrillera, todos los utensilios/platos, y mesas en el jardin.

En este viaje, pernocte en Cabanas Breidenbach (Min. 2N fines de semana/Temp. alta - 0244-355.1211) que cuenta con 20 cuartos normales y unidades tipo apartamento (no cabanas en una serie de modulos con "entramados" pintados en las fachadas. Son simples pero agradables, todos con bano/agua caliente, TV por cable, WiFi. Van desde habitaciones normales sin cocina (Temp. baja entre semana/fin de semana/Temp. alta, para 2 - BsF 200/240/280) hasta apartamentos para 5 con cocina y chimenea (para 2 - BsF 250/300/320). Tiene un area grande con parrilleras, patio/mesas y nuevo parque infantil.

En Breidenbach no hay servicio de comida; pero el hotel Bergland (por Rsvnes. fines de semana y feriados -solo horas de oficina- 0244-355.1994) al otro lado de la calle, tiene un restaurante excelente.

Aparte de los platos alemanes tradicionales, hay opciones sofisticadas tales como escalopas de pollo cubiertas con salsa de tomates colonieros y albahaca fresca, gratinadas con queso mozzarela y servidas con crujientes de papas a BsF 55; conejo horneado con champinones y tomaticos, servido con spatzel y vegetales bebes a BsF 95; picacatas de pavo con higos y pasas, salsa de naranja, uvas y oporto, queso brie rebosado con almendras, croquetas y vegetales a BsF 95; steak de dorado grille cubierto con tempura de camarones y calamares, ensaladitas y "dip" agria-dulce a BsF 110.

Y para terminar, irresistibles son los tentadores postres (a BsF 35) como un cono relleno de mousse de chocolate sobre un nido de fresas, creme brulee de Baileys y helado de cafe... Una buena noticia es que para gente como yo con poca capacidad para platos fuertes, ?puede pedir una racion para ninos (la mitad)! ?Felicitaciones!

Para hospedarse, Bergland tiene 15 amenos y amplios cuartos dobles (la mayoria con troja para una persona extra) ademas de siete unidades de "cabanas" (sin cocina), todas con balcon o terraza,

363/365 at the airport





Sitting at Gatwick airport, waiting for our flight home, made me remember a book I once read by French anthropologist Marc Auge, about non-places, such as airports, hotels or supermarkets, which he describes as transient places with anonymous people passing through. They have their own logic, which seems to be rather universal. More or less the same schema can be followed to operate in them, wherever you are in the world.

I don't find airports non-places, but rather situationally meaningful, evoking strong personal reactions. They are places of good-byes, reunions and beginning adventures. These red neon lights depict my emotions connected with departures and arrivals.

Park-Saheli-Marjan- Kish Island, Iran




Park-Saheli-Marjan- Kish Island, Iran





Persian Gulf, South of Iran

Kish Island has a unique situation in the strategic Persian Gulf region among tens of large and small islands. This island is so beautiful and attractive that it has become known as the Pearl of the Persian Gulf since ancient times.







Its calm coasts are covered with coral sands that shine in the sunlight, creating a unique and fascinating sight. The clear coastal waters allow one to view several meters deep into the sea and watch the beautiful movement of the fish. Diverse plants and native trees, as well as a pleasant climate seven months a year are among the outstanding characteristics of the island.



The island has attracted many tourists, travelers and writers throughout history due to these very characteristics. Among those who have written in praise of this island are Niarkhous, the Greek navy commander who traveled to Kish in 225 B.C., and wrote about its beautiful palm fields, Marco Polo, Ibn Batuta and Hamdullah Mostofi, as well as Ms. Fatemeh Al Ali the contemporary Kuwaiti writer who traveled to Kish in February 2002 and compared the island to a “gem on a king’s crown”.


Geography

Kish is lies between the 53 degrees and 53 minutes ,to 54 degrees and 4 minutes of the eastern longitude of the Greenwich Meridian, and 26 degrees and 29 minutes, and 26 degrees and 35 minutes of the northern latitude.



With an area of 90,547 square kilometers, the island is located only 18 km off the southern coast of the Islamic Republic of Iran. This beautiful oval-shaped island is 15 km long and seven km wide.



The map below shows the distance between Kish and a number of islands, ports, cities and the nearest country:



The distance from Kish to Tehran is 1052 km by air and 1600 km by land. Kish is at a distance of 1200 km from Isfahan, Iran’s historic and tourist destination city which attracts thousands of international visitors each year.


Topography

Kish is an almost flat island with an average altitude of 22 meters above the sea level. The highest region of the island (in the east) is 45 meters above the sea level. The island has shallow fissures formed as a result of erosion by heavy winter showers.

Climate

Temperature

Kish has a warm and humid climate with an average temperature of 30 degrees Celsius. The weather is temperate and pleasant in fall, winter and two months into the spring.


Humidity

The humidity is high in the majority of the months of the year. The humid season begins in mid April and continues for nine months.


Rain

Kish receives little and varying rainfall like in other parts of the Persian Gulf. The average annual rainfall in the island is 170 mm, 82 % of which falls in winter, 10 % in fall and the rest in spring and summer. The rain falls in the form of strong drizzle in spring and summer, and in small continuous drops in winter.


People

The native people of Kish are a combination of Iranians and Arab- Iranians of the country’s southern provinces, who had migrated to the island during its ancient times of prosperity. Thus they speak Farsi and Arabic. The complexion of the native people is dark and their physical characteristics are similar to those of the natives of the southern Iran. The majority of people are Sunni or Shiite Muslims who have established a strong link with each other throughout history.



Based on the census carried out in 2001, Kish has a population of 16501 comprising 4454 households. The increase in population is the result of the migration of Iranians from all parts of the country who come to work or invest in Kish. This has created considerable job opportunities and encouraged more migration to the island.



According to the programs envisaged for the Comprehensive Development Plan of Kish, in terms of urban infrastructure, public facilities and local resources, the island will be capable of providing for an estimated population of 200,000.



The island has a youthful population. Around 49.7% of the population is in the 25-64 age group, economically classified as active. The current population structure is a reflection of the inflow of job-seekers. With the ongoing development projects coming to fruition, the population structure is expected to normalize, approaching the patterns in other regions of the country.













The Forward Promenade Deck




The Forward Promenade Deck





The forward area of the Promenade Deck near the Observation Lounge.

When the ship was still in service this area was for use of First Class passengers only. On the port (left) side where you see the Past Times store there used to be the Cigar Shop, and just behind that was the First Class Library, now converted to two stores. On the starboard (right) side to the far edge of the photo was the area that used to be the flower shop, and right behind that is the former First Class Drawing Room.

The First Class Drawing Room was also used on Sunday's for Catholic services. While Church of England passengers could use the onboard chapel for services, Catholic First Class passengers would use the Drawing Room. The Drawing Room used to contain (and I believe still does although it's a store now) a partition that could be removed on Sundays to reveal a painting called "The Madonna of the Atlantic" for Catholic services.

But the Drawing Room has far more historic moment in its past.

According to one of our guides (and I haven't confirmed this, but the guy was a history grad student at the local university so I'm trusting him on this one :-) Winston Churchill often traveled on the Queen Mary, and used it several times to cross the Atlantic to the United States during the war years. These voyages were kept completely secret for reasons of security, of course, and when on board Churchill and his staff would use the Drawing Room as their offices for staying in touch with war events and conducting business.

So it was that was here in mid-voyage in 1944 that Churchill signed the order for the D-Day Invasion.

smoggy day at Huangpu River in Shanghai, China - 2001




smoggy day at Huangpu River in Shanghai, China - 2001





Our group arrived to Shanghai on May first of 2001. We flew with Air Canada from Vancouver. Our guide was waiting for us at the airport, and directly took us to the Huangpu River Waterfront Promenade. May first is the most important holiday in China, and the Promenade was filled with thousands of citizens celebrating. We never went near the river, so I told one of the men in our group I am going to take some pictures, wait for me. I took a few pictures and when I returned there was nobody from my group.
We were not told yet which is our hotel. To be alone in a strange city is not a good
feeling. I started to run in the direction where we were going, but found no one, but a a 2 feet high stone block. I jumped on it and looked around, and saw the guide weaving.
