Fort Langley

Keeping with the (semi) military theme, here are a few photos from Fort Langley, the initial trading outpost of the Hudson's Bay Company -- and nothing less than the birthplace of British Columbia itself.

The Kemmel Command Bunker

When I was in Belgium back in December, we visited one of Belgium's best kept military secrets: an honest to God, top secret, worst-case-scenario-backup-plan NATO bunker hidden in the Kemmelberg.

Rome Day 3 - Forum Romanum Bis

Leaving the central area behind, here's a few more pictures from the ruins up the hill, and the arena "at the back".
Even more than usual these are really just "hey look at my snapshots from my trip" kinda shots, with not much in the way of fancy photographic quality to them, well, what else is new :)

Yaletown and False Creek

The second weekend of March we had a beautifully sunny, warm Saturday, so I jumped out of Le Chateau and went for a walk through Yaletown, and then all around the water to the south, which is False Creek, around Science World and up to Granville Island to buy sausissen. Here's a few random snapshots from along the way to break up the Rome business. Got my camera with me for a change :)

Rome Day 3 - Forum Romanum

The third day was going to be the toughest one: a visit to the ruins of the birthplace of Rome, at the center of the center of the world. Tough, because the surrounding two hills block out a breeze, the ruins offer no shade, it's the middle of July, and all the stones bounce the heat back in your face. Come well prepared for a few hours in the oven, it's worth it!

Rome Day 1 - Castel Sant'Angelo

Next to the Basilica is Castel Sant'Angelo, a two thousand year old mausoleum with a fortress added on top of it, with papal apartments added to that, and a statue of the angel himself to wrap it all up.

Rome Day 1 - Basilica - Part II - Climbing!

If you ever get to visit the St. Peter Basilica in Rome, make sure you queue up for a chance to climb all the way to the top of the dome. It kicks ass.

Rome Day 0 - Evening Walk

In July I went to Rome for five and a half days, and I'm afraid it's time to now bore you to death with a truckload of souvenir shots :P I am not terribly happy with the quality of the shots, but hey what else is new.
