I’m not usually very good with taking heaps of pictures and distributing them. But lets give it a go shall we, and lo and behold, here is an attempt to bore you. I maintain that this is a better medium than that other popular website since I don’t want to give all the details of my private life to some loser that dropped out of that small liberal arts college up the river.
Paris je t’aime. Is starting with a picture of a canonical landmark considered good form?
This is a picture of all the bloody tourists doing what every tourist wants to do and take a picture of the Mona Lisa. It is at this point in the exposition that I am tempted to try to insert a dirty joke, but will refrain from doing so out of respect of those who haven’t seen the Mona Lisa.
This is also at the Louvre. Unfortunately it didn’t come in gummy form.
My most local beach. The texture of the sand, the surf, really makes me feel back home.
Lagrange, Laplace et al. I had no idea before visiting that these greats are venerated on this most famous of landmarks.
Seen in Den Haag.
Europe seems replete with splendid churches. This particular specimen was found in Den Bosch, which I visited as it is apparently a more “dutchee” town, and is the home of the lovely dessert, the Bossche Bol, which I strongly recommend.
More precisely this picture was taken from the top of the tower in the centre of town. Brugge is a quaint and beautiful town, complete with cobblestone-lined streets, delicious Belgian chocolate and a large population of tourists.
mmm, science. In the Pantheon.
Yes this is a slide rule. Clearly if I want to be at the forefront of mathematical research, then I need access to all the cutting edge computational machinery that mankind has developed. (At the time of writing, I do not have a computer in said office).
Ladies and Gentlemen thank you for your attention, and I’ll appear on your RSS reader again when next something interesting happens.
