Photography is not a crime!
 
Yes, really, I was investigated by feds and police because I took this photo of the Sun out my hotel room window in Boston.
A week ago, a rather strange event took place. No, I'm not talking about just the transit of mercury which took place on May 9, but an odd result of it. That morning I was staying at the Westin Waterfront in Boston. I like astrophotography, and have shot several transits.

He was able to back up, but I'm not sure how he'd be able to get off Dot Ave from there.

Here are some red lechwe (marsh antelope) running through one of the marshes in Botswana's Okavango delta. I'm trying to be artsy here and give an impression of speed by using a slow shutter speed and panning with the animals to give an impression of speed. Also, this is a non-standard crop. You may need to click on it to see the whole thing.

Young male leopard eating an impala. He may look super tough, but it needs to be mentioned that his mom is the one that caught it.

Vietnamese restaurants, part 10

Back to Ahn Hong last Thursday with John.  This time it was the long-threatened congee with pig-parts*.  Congee, of course, is rice porridge and can have just about anything added to it.  I think John would class this as Vietnamese comfort food.   Spare parts added this time included blood pudding, heart, tripe, liver, and some more standard meaty bits. Oh yes, there were the ubiquitous bean sprouts to add as well.  John likes to have a small bowl of dipping sauce on the side so one can flavor the various parts as desired without dumping sauce in the soup. John considers that a faux pas; for him, the congee is meant to be enjoyed for its natural flavor  I gave John's method a try.  It's helpful especially if you're not wild about some of the add-ins (liver, blood pudding).  The heart and tripe were fine but were, as expected a bit chewy.

*not the actual name of the dish on the menu.

Vietnamese food - African edition

In Botswana (Vumbura camp maybe), there was something called Vietnamese Shaking Beef on the menu one night. I ordered it, of course. My sessions with my Vietnamese food guru, John, had not yet introduced me to this dish, so I was keen to try it and see how the American version compared with the African.

On my return, I asked John about it. His first response was, "Never heard of it". That didn't seem right to me, so I googled the name and showed John the search results (which included a Vietnamese name). His second response was, "Oh, that. I don't consider that really Vietnamese. It's more French. Only the French and rich people could afford beef".

The two versions were not too different. The American version had smaller slices of beef that was probably marinated then sauteed (thus the "shaking" part of the name); the African version came in slightly larger pieces. The restaurant version came with a few slices of tomato and some lettuce for no apparent reason. There was rice with both. Neither version had much spice.

John likes to make a dipping sauce for the beef by mixing salt and pepper on a plate, squeezing lime juice over it, and stirring. He says this is completely optional. I found it well worth trying.

Sounds like the Beef Lock Lack at the Cambodian place here: Strips of beef with an awesome sauce, served on top of watercress with a few tomato & cucumber slices. One of my faves there!

The gentrification of Fields Corner continues. It's the second fancy coffee place in 4 blocks. Alas, only one portal for this coffee shop.

Kings Pool, Botswana.  Some of the lumps in the water are hippos.

Just back from a photo safari in Botswana.  I saw many interesting things - including squirrel massage!

Looks like there was a bit of a lag between the text showing up and the photo showing up.  Possibly a mobile issue.
