This fine gentleman (the one on the top in the picture) works for tips.  The guy on the bottom works for fish.


At least 2 things would concern me a little.  1) the flavor of the bait fish and 2) the incisors.  Especially the incisors.  Clearly they’ve both been doing this for a while.  But not sure I’d be interested in trying it.

Harbor near Cape Town.

We’re just back from a truly incredible trip to Africa for a safari. Like everyone who goes, we were very excited to see the Big Five: African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard, and White/Black rhinoceros.

And so here’s the first one — a lion.


Umm, wait…  Ok, ok.  So it’s a sea lion.  Don’t worry, “real” lions are coming.  And a bunch of other non-big 5 too.

This guy was at a harbor near Cape Town.

A different kind of service now. It’s turned into a restaurant.


These are at the Fort Mason farmers’ market. Not my usual market, but nice. And while these look like purple Padrons, the nice lady warned me that they pack a punch more like a habanero.


On our way back from Healdsburg we drove through Sonoma looking for the local farmer’s market. We saw this gentleman holding a very large bible over his head in front of the Jesus Saves neon sign.

At the Carnaval Parade.  Discussing strategy.
