recent classmates


July 2, 2007 - Well, the last day of the semester is tomorrow, but here are the classmates I've hung out occasionally with this semester. This is in front of the main library with the sun setting behind palm trees. Santi, from Thailand, is on the left. We might stay in contact. On the left is Yumi, from Japan. I wouldn't mind, but my sense is probably not.


July 4, 2007 - At a Dante's coffeehouse on the Taida campus. I took two shots of this scene. The multiple exposure shot didn't come out. This is the long exposure shot with me holding the 2 pretty still and Yumi not moving at all. I think she's good at that. I have other low light shots of her in perfect focus because she wasn't moving. Danila, from Russia, already went back to his country earlier this week. He had to go finish college. Oy!

for some reason, it's hard for me to imagine all those palm trees in taiwan. i guess it's an island, so can be considered tropical? :)

sfgate had a pic of the riots in taipei. something about ppl not wanting pork from the US, and ppl throwing pig feces? yuck, stay away from that!

Yo! Yankee pigs go home!!! haha. I haven't said that in a long time.

Yea, it's something legitimate about allowing U.S. pork that uses a chemical that domestic pig farmers aren't allowed to use. Unlike China complaining about U.S. soy products, which smacks of revenge for the ban on Chinese toothpaste and the problem with toys.

I don't know if palm trees are native to Taiwan, but Taiwan is half tropical. The Tropic of Cancer runs right through central Taiwan.
