Maldives - More

So we went to that Irufushi island.
It is quite remote, far north in the Madives. Not very close of Malé the capital city/island.

So we took a 45min trip by seaplane (you saw the picture of the Maldives Taxi).

Irufushi is a very recent resort. Look at this picture from google map:

I beleive this picture was taken at least 2 years ago.

Now it looks like what you've seen on my picts.

Coke.

Pepsi NEX (Japanese importation) Coca-Cola Zero (Korean importation)

You actually can find the classic can. So why importing from other countries ?

Oh, it tastes better, it tastes better.

at the restaurant: let's pick some food

Haven't show much about the great choice of "sea food" you can have in the south of China.
Time has come.

'fancy some croco ?



I love eating that thing. 

Good stuff. No, really.

A mahjong set for desert ?

Or a glass of snake wine ?

Macau - coca cola

Class

let's be honest

No kidding ?

Macau - "che casino !"


Yes. In Macau. Indoor.


Still Indoor. Fake sky. The building is enormous. A city. A casino.


Real street. Indoor. And probably fake apartments.


When the sky is not blue, it is an Italian roof. Corridors everywhere.


Well, the "casino" is called the Venetian.

Back in Paris

I am back.
Back in the city of all ([...] and one to rule them all [...]).
The view from my hotel is so unique that I cannot resist to share it with you.

Just enjoy as much as I did.


Etoile - Paris, France

The Bund

The too classic and well known Bund of Shanghai.
And, no, I am not standing on a bench or something. Just on the bund.
They are small people, that's it.

Under construction

OK. Just for fun, have a look at that renovation site.

Now, let's have a closer look to that.

Ya, bamboo !
All the scaffolding here are made of bamboo.
Just like in Jackie Chan's movies.

at Night

Friday night, 11pm.
This is Nanjing East Road. I would compare it to our Champs-Elysées (or maybe The Bund is closer to it, but anyway, it is a famous big street).
And it was empty. Night life is more is the bar and the night club I guess.

From the window

The view form the balcony.
You can click to enlarge.

Yes, I am trying night photos.
Almost impossible to got it that clear without putting the camera on something to stabilize it perfectly. I put it on 1''4 opening. It is a long time for my shaking hands, even with the anti-shacking system (that would do perfectly the trick with day light with normal exposure time).

Photos Ahead

I am expecting to share here some of my life there.
And I guess some photos can express more than long speeches.

Serving that purpose (and just because I wanted to) I bought a camera.
I guess this one could accept a capital letter.
Impressive tool, a bit bulky maybe. No way to take a photo without anyone noticing it.

Keep you updated on my progress in photography.
