Much concern on how they re-treat water after consume. Water in Thailand's canal, particularly in the city, very pollute. I wonder that how fish, shrimps, shells and other water animals survive in that such dirty water!  Poor fish, Poor Thai itself...

You see that unusually large bill? That's why it is called as "Stork-billed Kingfisher" (Pelargopsis capensis). This colorful and large bird is fairly common in southern #India. This particular picture was taken in #Kerala, when the bird was staring at the water beneath for fish.

Exploring the world with +Google Glass

Just recently, I met this gentleman in the wilds beyond the desert. He was so curious and interested in Glass. Absolutely transfixed, he asked me everything about it, then tried it on and played and played and played!  He loved it!  

First I had him go through the same demo I give everyone.  I have them say, "Okay Glass, Take a picture" — it understands pretty much every accent around the world as far as I can tell. This always makes people freak out with excitement when they see the photo they just took floating as a hologram in front of their eyes.  

Then he started using it more and more, going through all my emails, watching videos, seeing my text messages, asking Google questions, checking weather... I mean it just went on and on and on... and then he started showing all his friends and telling them about it — he was so excited.  Naturally, he was happy for me to take his photo while he was playing!

We ended up talking about a bunch of different things.  I even bought an old used knife from him, and he showed me how to stick the curved end of it into a camel's hump to get water in an emergency.  There's another part of the knife you use to seal up the little puncture wound.  Then we talked about mediation, the sealing of the four cardinal spiritual doors in the night before entering the tent, different cultures around the world, and well, about a dozen other things.  Anyway, it was great... 


(btw after posting this, haha - I see that G+ automatically tagged it with Selfie!)
