This is just another one of my many tourists photos of Bahia Principe. Most of my photos focus were actually taken with the small camera. I had originally changed my camera because of the weather. I saw the lens getting foggy and I naturally assumed there was something wrong with the camera. It is one of the flimsiest excuses to get a new camera. There was a good upside to the new model. My old camera ran on AA batteries. It used to eat through them really quickly. It was a real pain and the like. At least the new...

The photo features a guy cooking food in a Teppanyaki restaurant. This is a type of restaurant where you see the cook making the meals right in front of you. As he is making the food, he asks who wants vegetables or shrimps and then he cooks it. It was quite the interesting experience. The appetizers were actual sushi rolls. I think they came from Sushi Maki. All in all the food was well liked. I am not a big of a foodie. I am always careful with what I eat. The only thing I liked were the fried veggies....

No one in their right...

My polite and distant persona is always interpreted as being nice. One of the visitors came with  acute chubby baby. I spent most of the party walking with the baby. It wouldn't have been too much of a problem if I was a bit shorter. My back hurts now, from arching and holding the hands of the baby to help her walk. The baby was pretty big for her...

Don't you hate it sometimes when you forget how to do something? This happened to me while I was staying at this hotel. I wanted to try the different color isolations, but I forgot how to do it. I spent like half a day fiddling with all the settings of the camera, till I got it right. This is the result of my experiment. I call it Green Adoration. Why I called it so? I don't know. It sounded catchy and a bit humoring. There is a lot of green around the goddess statue, so it seemed proper. The green...
