“Why do people move?  What makes them uproot and leave everything they’ve known for a great unknown beyond the horizon?  What climb this Mount Everest of formalities that make you feel like a beggar?  Why enter this jungle of foreignness where everything is new, strange and difficult?  The answer is the same the world over:  people move in the hope of a better life.”  – By Yann Martel from his book Life of Pi

Thank you very much for reading my blog!

Annoyed: Crazy Wisconsin Driver #wisconsindriver

26 Feb

driver snow_8210 ch blogI retouched out our driver’s license plate so he/she can be anonymous.  Not smart to drive down the interstate and he can’t see out his back window.  It’s a fundamental requirement of driving to be able to see out the back window.

Hellllooooooo!

p.s.  You might be thinking I’m not so smart taking pictures while driving.  Well, I was stopped and shot the photo.

Rotier’s Restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee #rotiers

Rotier’s was a restaurant I went to right from the Nashville Airport.  Good food, service and ambiance.

I did not eat all the onion rings but I did eat all the burger.

The cheeseburger on French bread was supposed to be the thing to order, so order it I did!

Flowers in La Brioche

flowers french restaurant_7428 ch blogLa Brioche is a French bakery/cafe in Madison, Wisconsin.  I liked the flowers and wallpaper and took a photo.  They have good food.  When I crave French pastries and strong coffee drinks, and when I’m in the area, I come here.  Last time I was there I guess I was super hungry because I forgot to take photos of the food!
