Snow in Manila? Check out this Manila Cathedral snow sculpture!

There were a lot of amazing snow sculptures at the 66th Annual Sapporo Snow Festival, but the most intricate and artistic of them all was the replica of the Manila Cathedral. How would you rate the resemblance? I was brought back to a much warmer place when I first saw this sculpture a few days ago. Everything from the cross to the stained glass windows to the figurines and Latin script on the front was dead on. I was very impressed. Here is a comparative photo.

People Watching at the Lincoln Memorial

Good afternoon, everyone. I have just a few more posts from the United States until I take off for Japan in just over a week. Last weekend I visited some friends in Washington, D.C., and decided to try out my new GoPro3 camera at some of the famous tourist sites. Here is an accelerated view of the crowds at the Lincoln Memorial. Enjoy!


Greetings from Washington, D.C.

Greetings from our nation’s capital! As you can see from my most recent postings, I am making the rounds on the East Coast before I leave for Japan in two weeks. Visiting friends, rekindling business contacts, and enjoying good fare and company have been at the top of my list as I have been to New York, Philadelphia, and Washington over the past three weeks. Here is how the Capitol Rotunda Dome looked yesterday. I was a tour guide here along with being a Senate intern in 2011.
