Fascinating art projects using modern technology and commenting on contemporary culture:
I wonder how much more of this we are going to see as things go on. Much more, I hope.
Well, we are back. The trip home was over 24 hours long, and some of our luggage took even longer to get back. They made me check my carry on luggage on the way home, which proved to be a really, really bad idea, since this included my laptop, which never came back at all,
Which brings me to the good news (for you) – most of the second weeks pictures are gone forever, and I won’t be forcing them on you. I still have the rainy few days we spent in Nice – really not much to look at, but almost the entire visit to Avignon is sitting on the lap of some shit-for-brains theif, along with my little mp3 player.
The good news (for me) is that I had backed up everything from Paris, so all the panoramas and the hundred of pictures I hadn’t foisted on you from there isn’t gone; after throwing away the useless ones, I probably posted about one picture in ten. Avignon was very pretty, but at least that’s something.
The better news (for me) was that it was work laptop so I’m not exactly out a laptop myself. It was on it’s last legs, too – I’d already sent in a request to have it replaced before it completely fell apart.
Oh well. The fucker.
In the future, please make sure that you don’t check you laptop, or anything else you think you might want to keep for yourself.
Ok everyone, you know the deal now.
There would be more to say, but we have to be up at the butt crack of dawn tomorrow for the latest day’s adventure. Hopefully, with time at the end to allow the photos to catch up with the adventuring.
As you can see from these photos, we are definitely still in France.
Today’s offering: boats, bees, and sore feet. With a side of kultcha.
Finally noos avons lee wee-fee.
The last two days have been consumed by epic levels of the Parisian triathlon – walking, climbing stairs and eating.
We have to depart now, the trial by triathlon awaits us. Now that we have found a reliable source of network connection, and have the really arduous walking and eating behind us (I am praying), we might be able to post things at the end of the day, instead of collapsing.
It is the morning of day 3, and all in all our first two days have been very enjoyable. After a supposed catastrophic airline delay, we ended up on an Air France direct flight instead of American Airlines cattle class. After a minor kerfuffle with the vending machines at the Charles de Gaulle TGV station, we made it into town and spent a pleasant evening eating vegan French food (yes, it does exist!) and wandering the city center. Yesterday we visited Notre Dame cathedral, the Sainte-Chappelle (royal chapel of Saint Louis and some of the most breathtaking stained glass in the world), and the Conciergerie, where they imprisoned the likes of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI before chopping their heads off. On the agenda for today are the Musee d’Orsay (19th century art), the Eiffel tower, and a night cruise of the Seine.
A great time is had by all.
This is the front page – everything ends up here – stupid links, groovetronica news, and everything else. Higgledy-piggledy. You may be just looking for the personalstuff, or even just photos. You might even be looking for one of the other categories, to your left. You can also get right to the photos next time by typing in photos.elbizri.com.
I’m going on vacation again. If you come back later, I am sure you will find pictures. In fact, you are absolutely certain to find pictures.
I am too blitzed from cleaning the house and getting ready all night to write anything particularly interesting write now. In the meantime, please amuse yourself with a perusal of any of my previous pictoral adventures that you may have missed:
Keep refreshing until you see something that you absolutely have to click on.
