The image of a contented man

Well I have been a bit of a slacker with the posting over the last week. I was going to do something the other night, but I wanted to put up some pictures & I had no way of getting them from my computer to Michaela’s one (I don’t have internet access here yet). I bought some CD’s this morning, so it is all good.
No real order to the pics, just some visions of the fun stuff that I have done over the last little while.
I am playing around with Moveable type at the moment, so all of the pictures are pop-ups. Click to see a larger image.

Suspension bridge in “Turkey Run National Park” Indiana.

Canoeing on Sugar Creek. (Can anyone say “Coqui ripoff?”)

Reflective artwork in Chicago.

Trying out my new macro lens on a lovely flower in downtown Chicago.

Vinnie, one of Scott & Jenni’s two pooches.

Michaela, Heather, Jenni & Scott @ the “Route 66” bar in St Louis.
In other news, Edinburgh has been very… Scottish to me. Day one, lovely sunshine, warm weather, I felt like I was still in Sydney. That night, rain, and that is how it has been ever since. Mind you, I am not complaining. Sleep is better when it is done to rain, the air is cooler & afternoons spent reading are more comfortable.
I continue to look for a flat & some part time work. I have a bit of casual work lined up with Mic & My favourite Restaurant “Parrots” and I have my first shift on Friday night, but I would love to have about 20 hours a week of other stuff, to keep the bills payed.
Looking for a house is also coming along. There is an awesome place that looks onto the Bruntsfield links, but I have to wait till Friday to find out whether or not I have got that place. In the mean time, I have a room at Michaela’s flat.
Time to get back to work. I have a hectic schedule of sleep and reading to maintain today!
