Salton Sea

On the drive home from Sedona,
we took a detour to the Salton Sea.
Didn't even know of its existance until then.
It was an interesting stop.

WBC Finals

WBC Finals 2009: JAPAN vs KOREA
Japan wins 5-3!!!
SO worth sitting through major traffic,
a 10 inning 4 hour game
and losing my voice.

March 16

Happy Birthday to my Mom!

"Soul Search"

Went to Sedona, Arizona last month on a
so-called "soul search" road trip.
Woke up early to see the sunrise from Airport Mesa.
Got lost. Asked a kind old man for directions.
He recommended us to visit the Palatki Ruins.
Drove through miles of road-less desert.
Totally worth the trip.

Blue sky.

Blue and Red contrast.

View from inside the Chapel of the Holy Cross.

Chapel built between the rocks.
On a side note,
the only McDonald's in Sedona had a turquoise arch.
Looked it up to find, its the only one in the world.

Aloha Oahu

A brief recap of my Hawaii trip from December.
Besides being in pain from the marathon,

Woke up to this every morning.

Sipped on Pineapple and Guava Juice.
Asked the waiter if it was fresh squeezed... to hear
"Actually, its from Dole!"

Saw some amazing, old trees.
Played tourist and visited the Dole Plantation.

Learned that Pineapples grew like this.
Got ripped off for paying $5 for this Pineapple ice cream.
Dole Plantation is highly over-rated.
Ate the "#1 Loco-Moco on Waikiki"
... not too sure about that.

Waikiki Beach.
I miss it...
