New Year 2016 Las Vegas Fireworks

I saw in the New Year this year in Las Vegas with a couple of Polish friends, which was a hell of a lot better than how I spent the previous New Year’s Eve! We all arrived in Vegas a few days early for CES, so it worked out very well. New Year’s Eve in […]

Historic Planes In The Flesh

I was recently in DC for a mixture of business and pleasure. Washington DC is home to the Smithsonian, which is more than just a “museum”.

Enjoying Regional Cuisine in Jordan

Last night I had dinner with a couple of friends in one of the hotel’s restaurants. Although I’m in Jordan the restaurant was Lebanese, but it’s still in the same region (more or less). The food was excellent and most of what we had we simply shared “family style”. One of the things that really […]
