Here are my pictures from South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, and Singapore: South Korea Japan Hong Kong Singapore I tried using Flickr and Facebook to share them, but both failed me. Uploading to Flickr was too slow in Vietnam. Uploading to Facebook with iPhoto produced duplicates and limited albums to 200 pictures. Dropbox came to my rescue. I exported 1,232 pictures from iPhoto to the Dropbox Photos directory with medium size and quality, weighing in at 83.
I decided to post my camera pictures to Facebook instead of Flickr. You can view them here: Set 1 Set 2 Set 3 Set 4 Of course, if you’re friend or family, you can friend me on Facebook and be up to date on all my pictures.
I’d heard good things about the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle as a place to live, especially for my first year here, so I decided to venture into the city to check it out. I read a little about it and decided to visit Volunteer Park first, which seems to be near the north end of the neighborhood. The park was quite large and green and had an old water tower, a reservoir, an Asian history museum, and a conservatory.
I moved to Seattle! Yes, it finally happened. No, the thesis isn’t done; I’ll have to fly back when it’s done to defend it. Seattle couldn’t wait any longer. I would have written about this sooner, but I’ve felt so tired in the evenings since I moved here. Moving is always such a chore. Thankfully Microsoft made the move very easy by shipping my belongings and car here, providing temporary housing and a rental car, and connecting me with a rental agent in the area.
