Medellin

Image
April 22, 2018. Flew to Medellin today, which took longer than it should have because my flight was cancelled. Fortunately wifi in the airport lounge was excellent so I spent the delay editing photos and watching the Blue Jays game. Arrived in time for supper and to get caught in a rainstorm. This kite display isn't actually in Medellin, but is rather just outside the airport. https://flic.kr/p/26rfzPx

April 21, 2018. I took the Transmillennial from the airport hotel where I'l staying to the city centre and wandered around on a gorgeous Saturday taking pictures and enjoying the noise and the atmosphere. I alo wrote a blog post, "The Morality of the More Powerful". https://flic.kr/p/JhPKof

Turtle Power

April 9, 2018. By my count, two turtles equals five Iron Men. These are what I suspect are pinatas in the Whole Foods Store, where I went at lunch. Despite being ill, it was a good week, as I managed to finish three papers. Kind of makes up for the previous two weeks, where I accomplished nothing. https://flic.kr/p/JcKApS

Had a frustrating CPAP appointment this morning and worked on a report this afternoon. My cold continues to linger but I'm doing better, https://flic.kr/p/25dyM4j

Icemageddon

April 16, 2018. OK, Icemageddon is perhaps an exaggeration, but we did have an icy coating over everything this morning, with the result that I stayed home for the day and worked on papers. Still struggling with my stupid cold. https://flic.kr/p/23uVNSy

Waiting...

April 15, 2018. Another day spent indoors watching baseball and puttering with photos. This is my bicycle, all shiny and clean after receiving its spring tune-up a couple week ago. Now it sits in the garage, waiting, waiting... https://flic.kr/p/J6pK3E

April 14, 208. I spent the day doing nothing but watching baseball and puttering on the computer, trying to share this cold. I was all warm and cozy with the heater on in my home office. Meanwhile, this is the neighbour's firepit, waiting, waiting, for something like spring to arrive... https://flic.kr/p/J51VkL
