Today's team lunch made clear that American cuisine, much like its very (very) distant relative, the French cuisine, does know how to turn pork into some tasty tastiness!
Look at my whiteboard, as I found it when I came back from vacation!
It is true, I do like chicken wings! How did they know?!
It's a rainy day in the Bay Area. Ironic, coming back from Europe (which tends to be a tiny little bit more on the rainy side during this time of year) home to see it be rainy here instead. Better than the other way around I guess!
The tail fins (or "vertical stabilizers" as they are apparently correctly called) of two Lufthansa airplanes at Frankfurt International Airport.
Side note: The reflections in the window and the ugly advertisement make me sad a little, but other than that, I still thought this made for a good shot.

Corail are the "slow" variant of French long-distance trains, as opposed to the famous TGV ("Train à Grande Vitesse", meaning high-speed train). On the route between Strasbourg, Alsace, and Lyon, Rhone-Alpes, however, both kinds take the same time due to the old age of the tracks. There's hope though: By the end of the year, a new high-speed connection between the two cities is going to be opened, improving travel times significantly.

Check out the individual drops of water, mid-flight.
This is an old Alfa Romeo convertible, as seen near Milan, Italy. It's what I believe to be an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider, model year 1955. It's such an awesome vehicle that the owner could not resist to drive it with the roof down, even in the middle of the night in the Po river valley, where the rice fields spawn a disturbing number of mosquitoes at this time of year.
