Kelby Shoot II Sept 4

Ho Chi Minh City - well you complained about these World-class cities being too easy. I tossed in a tough one and many of you folded! Way to go Jim, Joani, and Tony on Ho Chi Minh City. I had two (2) guesses for Paris (Notre Dame threw them off) - Peyton and Mike.

"Capital Punishment"

Not sure what I did to deserve this fate but. . .

On the third floor of the Stone Mill was a homemade electric chair! And, it was dark!! And, it was very quiet!!! You're right, another chance to try some ghosting!

There was a guy fiddling with the chair and items around it - he was the craftsman who designed and built it. So with his blessing, I got to ghosting - AFTER I made sure the plug was NOT connected to any wall outlet.

Where in the World?

Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting? 

locals love to refer to the city as the ‘city that never sleeps’.

said to have more millionaires per square mile than Manhattan, perhaps that is why, it is also called the ‘city of dreams’.

the south of the city is known for its colonial architecture - one such grand example is the Gateway – it was built in 1924. It was built to commemorate King George’s visit in 1911.

take a Harbor Cruise to visit the famous Haji Ali Dargah. Built on an islet, this Dargah is considered a sacred place both by Hindus and Muslims of the city.

hire a boat to visit the Elephanta Island that is famous for its ancient cave temple. Worth seeing here is the 19.6 ft-high statue of the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva.

relax at the Marine Drive. Also known as the ‘Queen Necklace’ for the shape the night lights form around this ocean front, Marine Drive is a popular promenade.

Better start Googling as that's the best I can do. . .

Barr's Comment on Domestic Tranquillity:

On a beautiful day like this 
it's hard to believe anyone can be unhappy 
-- but we'll work on it.
