Yubz- Talk BIG!

Originally uploaded by zambales_EYEMD

Do you miss the retro style of answering the phone? Yubz is connecting to your mobile phone and you can talk BIG, or go home :D It can used it wireless via Bluetooth. From my point of view it would be handy to have it on the mountain sometimes. If I am in the powder and wanting to use the phone or answer a call it is such a pain in the ... to take the phone out of the pocket. In order to do that I need to take my gloves off too.

Garra Rufa Fish Therapy

Am trecut de multe ori pe langa el. Este asezat intr- una din onsen- urile mele preferate din Aomori. Chiar langa scari, la vedere, insa mojoritatea vizitatorilor nu vor sa- i fac o vizita "Doctorului Peste". Este un peste mic, care traieste in Turcia, Syria, Iran sau Irak, protejat impotriva comercializarii, pe nume Garra Rufa.
Si cum spuneam, trecand pe langa bazinul cu apa calda in care se afla pestii, nu am ezitat si de data asta sa nu le fac o vizita. Am primit un ceas care indica 13 minute, timp in care sa ma pot "imprietenii" cu pestii. Mi- am asezat picioarele in apa, si imediat ce au venit pestii, as fii vrut ca prosopul care il aveam in mana pentru a- mi sterge picioarele sa mi- l fii bagat in gura ca sa nu rad cu gura pana la urechi. O senzatie destul de rara, sa simti multi pestisori ca te "pupa" pe picioare. Din cate am inteles trateaza multe boli ale pielii, hranindu- se cu bacteriile si pielea moarta de pe picioare.
Au fost 13 minute de rasete innabusite. Am trecut pe langa acelasi mic bazin si saptamana trecuta, pestii erau mari insa nu pot spune acelasi lucru si despre numarul lor. Oare ce s- o fi intamplat intre timp?

Autumn Clouds

Two or three more weeks before the new snowboard season. After a busy night at a local snowboard event I spent a few hours taking pictures in Aomori. Playing with my camera, I discovered how to make the sky appear with all its details in a photo. I need more time to play with it.

2 busy weeks have passed. Two more big events coming up. One of them is "Christmas Memories" a fundraising event we are preparing for the 14th of December.
