Balloon Museum, Albuquerque, NM

Actually, the Balloon Museum is a lot more interesting than it sounds.

This panorama was taken from the back deck of the Balloon Museum. During the Balloon Fiesta in October this wide expanse would be filled with hundreds of hot air balloons in all shapes and sizes, even Darth Vader. My dad [pictured] tells me it’s really something to see.

Air France Flight 374 – Paris Epilogue

I never did find that perfect coat.

Driving. Holy crap I don’t understand how there isn’t an accident at every intersection. People will make left turns cutting across two other lanes of traffic. Bikes and people fill in every other space. It’s nuts.

Everybody thinks Paris is such a romantic city. I don’t get it. They only think that because the women are beautiful and everyone is making out all the time.

Some chosen because I actually heard the song there, some are thematically appropriate or there’s backstory, others just because they have a frenchy name. Who wants a copy?
