Although I have a touch of acrophobia, bridges don’t usually bother me. The exception being those rickety, swinging, pedestrian bridges. Like this one:
But I could handle this bad boy (I think):
And he cuts a fine figure if I do say so myself…
One of the best dining experiences I have know was beachside in Bali. The food, the friends, the view all most excellent.
I have been, ahem, keeping my eye on the controversy involving sports reporter Ines Sainz and the boys from the NY Jets. It seems the modestly dressed Ms. Sainz was subjected to demeaning behavior while pursuing her journalistic responsibilities on the gridiron sidelines:
I know the first word that comes to my mind when I see this photo is “professional”.
So anyway, the aforementioned incident has now sparked a fascinating debate concerning gender and sports. Specifically, folks are asking the perhaps unanswerable question: just who is the hottest foreign sports reporter (female division)? You can peruse the nominees here.
As for me, I think the whole discussion is sexist and disrespectful to women in general and to the sports reporting profession in particular. I want to go on record as having said that. I would also like to nominate a Korean reporter for consideration as world’s hottest:

I really do feel a significant post comin’ on. In the meantime, a photo from a small village in Bali…
Heh, this guy served a useful purpose. You removed the phallic apparatus and whacked the wooden native in order to call room service. One of the many fine memories of a Bali vacation.
Here’s a photo of where I’m heading out to soon for some Friday night darts–Pub Dolce Vita.

It’s always sweet to live the hustle bustle of the city behind…
Once you hit Route 6 you can’t go wrong…
When you travel through the mountains in Korea, you travel through the mountains.
You can’t spend much time on the highway without taking a break for some Korean noodles. Well, I can. But I’m not Korean.
Did I mention there were tunnels?
And some nice two lane blacktop…
Arrive safely in Gangnuem where we booked a room in this comfortable place for 50,000 Won.
And enjoyed ocean views like this…
The room was small but functional and comfortable.
Sharing the morning coffee with a butterfly…or is that a moth?
A rainy morning on the beach was actually quite pleasant…
And now I’m back safe and sound in the city…
First in a new series here at LTG. A random photo from my vast archives.
This here would be a meandering desert highway in Southern California which ultimately takes you into Death Valley.
Headin’ out for a little Labor Day road trip to the
Speaking of driving, how are y’all enjoying watching the Dems drive the economy straight into the toilet. Summer Recovery my ass! Michael Rameriz nails it…
You can read the rest here if you are so inclined.
For the first time in nearly six years that I’ve been here, they shut down the garrison here in Seoul. Which means no work today for moi.
Let it Blow! Let it Blow! Let it Blow!
(which it has been. some strong gust woke me up around 0600. it is calmer now though and not much rain). So, this ain’t no Hugo, that’s for sure.
