Thanks to Dave for suggesting us the Renaissance Festival: a huge event in Todd Mission, about 1 hour and a half from home. According to the organizers, each year over six hundred thousand people attend to the fest: my first concern when I hear these numbers is always: ‘how about the parking?’. Followed by other […]
This is a photo remake with some additional background of the famous comic ‘Closing Time’. In Marta’s original, the protagonist finds herself obstructing the closing activities of our preferred breakfast bar: her coffee mug is almost full however, too hot to drink. As the bar employees begin to send acoustic and visual signals such as […]
Kelby’s photowalk 2019 in Galveston gifted us a great sunset in a pleasant Texan evening well worth the few miles.

Now when the wild animal at issue is a rather ‘biting’ one such as this gator, one should at least […]
Got some tickets for the Astros last week-end when the home team played Seattle in a very slow game ended 2-1 for Houston. We chose the Saturday game to leave the Sunday for home-relax: a pity because the very next day the score was 21 (!!) to 1. Anyway, below our lessons learned from our […]
We are back to the US after a vacation that was just too short. Early July in Italy was great and late July in Houston is incredibly mild, very pleasant especially in the evening. This won’t last and the triple digit will be back soon. Better I take the camera for a quick tour just […]
