Hi Wesley
How are you?
I am often in Kyrgyzstan. Let me know when you'll be there again. Let's meet.

Photos on the memory. From Pamir

Wow! That video was magnificent!! Blew my mind with the Milky Way! Made me realize how much of the beauty I've been missing due to where I've been living. New goal: see the galaxy like that!

Incredible Video

Wow! What an incredible video. You are talented - the artistic way you capture the beauty of the Master Artist!

Never thought of going to Kyrgyzstan, but now I want to go.

I'm just looking into getting some aluminium panniers made Wes and am having an internal aluminium pocket added.

I know this is not the same as soft luggage which I know is down to personal taste and preference. I want to keep my travel documents flat and also my iPad protected. They'll also be a lot easier to find amongst my other stuff as well I hope!

Umm, I'm guessing you haven't been to Harlem lately.

Exactly. The AAs are being pushed out by the Caucasians. Who knew that would ever happen....

Some really beautiful brownstones Uptown.

Wesley keep the posts coming

Happy Thanksgiving...
