I would like to take the time here to talk about my time in Columbus. It is really an eye-opener to live in Ohio and the mid-west. One thing I noticed was that it is a very spiritual place here, there are a few places that I have felt like that in the world those being Edinburgh in Scotland, a place in NW Australia and here. There are many different beliefs here and it seems many people from different lands come here for gatherings, ceremonies etc. I don't want to talk too much about religious beliefs here but I watched an interesting movie called
Whaledreamers today and I really like some of the songs in it. Here is one.

Hello Fall

Well fortunately the last few days of summer are still here if we look hard enough but fall is definitely in the air. Anyway I wanted to capture some of Ohio's foilage and parks. I live in Clintonville in Columbus, OH next to Whetstone park which is a really amazing park and there is a great bike trail near the river right next to it. So yesterday I went to the park and snapped some pics and then had a really amazing yoga workout. I am finally able to do some of those crazy yoga poses that they have in the books and I laughed while I was doing them because I never thought I could but here I was bending in every which way. It was awesome. Anyway check out some pics from my outing yesterday.

East Coast Hijinks

So at the end of last month I went on a trip to see family and friends in Boston-CT-NYC and what an eventful week it was! In Boston Dan and I met up with tons of old friends and went out to dinner with them and hung out with my sister. We ate at a really yummy burger joint called Boston Burger Company http://bostonburgerco.com/ yummy! We went out to a really cool club too call the Goodlife http://goodlifebar.com/ in downtown Boston. I also did some shopping around Davis Square in Sommerville where my sister lives which is a really neat area full of cool shops. Next I went to Connecticut to visit my dad, mom and my cute cat Kaya who is in the pictures here. I went on an awesome motorcycle ride, relaxed in my mom's jacuzzi, went kayaking with my dad and went hunting for garnets at a local quarry in Roxbury http://www.johnbetts-fineminerals.com/jhbnyc/trips/roxbury.htm . Also had amazing home cooked meals the entire time I was there thanks to my dad's girlfriend Viv! Next up I went to NYC to visit a good friend of mine from college and had some drinks at a rooftop bar, the finest in all NYC at the classic Peninsula Hotel http://www.peninsula.com/Peninsula_Hotels/en/default.aspx . Then we went to Chelsea and hit up some bars, restaurants and played pool with a fun guy from germany. Then back to Ohio. What an awesome trip!
