Recently I came across one commentary by an Egyptian management consultant by the name Ms. Rania Al-Maghraby (PM World Journal, Vol. I, Issue III-October 2012). With a candid English and pleasant conceptual flow, she mentioned some of the Mega Projects Egypt is considering executing in the years to come. I was mesmerized with the size and complexity of the projects in the pipeline. Some of the projects indicated in her commentary are Egypt-Saudi Arabia Bridge crossing over the Red Sea, another Aswan type high dam on River Nile, Western Desert New Axis Project, Sinai desert development projects, nuclear power generation plants and even a space program. How great! (Dear Reader, please first read her commentary from http://www.pmworldjournal.net under the title “Mega Projects on Egypt’s Horizon”).

My cousin and his wife celebrated their first year of marriage last month during their visit from Colombia. I accompanied them on their last day in San Francisco last week, running some last-minute errands and stopping to grab a few frames every now and then.
So long you two. Happy anniversary 🙂
So, seeing as I didn’t even have enough time to finish a single roll on Josh and Vanessa, the rest of this post will have to consist of, uh, more Shiba pictures. Surprise surprise.
Miru (left) is a Shiba puppy who in no way shape or form was able to get Suki to care about his existence. We made them hang out anyway:
Pagosa Springs, Colorado, where we spent the Christmas holiday, is known for getting the most snow in Colorado. They also have some of the best sunsets I’ve ever seen, the following being unexpectedly spectacular.
When it comes to natural beauty, not many places can compete with Colorado, the least of which is the Texas Hill Country. However, the Hill Country has proximity working in its favor as opposed to the 14 hour drive to Colorado, making it a much more realistic candidate for the site of a quick weekend getaway. I’m a big believer in working with what you’ve got and seeing the beauty that is to be found in even the most desolate or humble of landscapes.
There was a bit of a slow-down in progress that occurred because of the holidays, but we are nearing the end of our journey. The appliances, counter tops, and plumbing fixtures have…

Greetings friends! We spent some of these holiday weekends in Sosúa, celebrating Christmas and Jakob‘s 21st birthday.
In the Dominican Republic, winter is almost like summer. There is just a slightly colder wind blowing, but we definitely enjoy hot chocolate just as if it were snowing (what do I know, I’ve never seen snow). Either way… GOOD!
Playa Santa was created a few years ago after an earthquake in Sosúa. I love coming here. There’s always a peaceful crowd, and it’s a good place to hang with friends.
Feel the sand between your toes! (I can see us holding hands, walking in the beach our toes in the sand… –this is me loving Justin Timberlake)
Happy birthday! You are globally legal.
Honestly, if you can’t see her huge bruise, I’ve got news for you: YOU ARE BLIND!
This is el Parque Mirador Sosúa, built two…
