Weekly Photo Challenge: Up in Houston

This is much belated post dedicated to my lovely friend Anne and her equally lovely family who generously took me in for a night on my way to Costa Rica last February. As I looked through my pictures of my short Houston layover, I noticed that we had done a lot of looking up: the sunset, birds on wires, camera shots, and the artistic light show celebration of Black History Month. A perfect addition to the Weekly Photo Challenge: UP.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the details

On my way to back Korea from Costa Rica, I had the chance to stopover for a day in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA. Luckily, my sister was up from Lafayette, Louisiana to visit my parents who spend two months of the year here (see snowbirds). It was the first time in 4 years the four of us were together. During our only morning together, we went for a power walk on the white sandy beach, a two minute jaunt from their condo. While walking, my sister – on the phone with United Airlines waiting to see if she could change her flight so we could be on the same plane the next morning – silently grabbed attention and pointed to the sand. Here are the details:
