Season 3 Episode 2 "River of No Return: part 2"

I must say this, for the last two weeks I was in Accra and had internet only in the hotel so whenever I went out, I would have struggled to find directions and places if I didn't have Open Street Maps. Google maps would've shown me place offline, but without navigation.
With OSM, works offline just as if you were online, with navigation updating in real time! Very useful in cases like this when you can't access internet but still need to go somewhere.

Map accompanying the second book of Jean-pierre Bonnefoy's science-fiction/fantasy cycle Polynesia. Centered on French Polynesia, the author focuses the book's geography on the various archipelagos and their "high places", represented by black circles.

Rapa Nui (Easter Island), the only external element in this enclosed space, focuses the eye thanks to the line of tension established with Papeete (Tahiti), prefiguring the main plot of one of the novel's temporal scenarios.

hello world

I just wanted to share something with y'all to say hi, so I found this in my folder of miscellaneous images collected from around the internet and thought I'd share it with you. Not sure where I found it but it comes with its original citation.

Would love to see a modern map that shows this. Being modern, it would do it from any place requested, and would let you set a budget and travel mode types.

"Eaglemount Road & Center Road"

We did a nice 14 mile bike ride this morning from Capitola to Santa Cruz and back along the coast. When we rode past the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk amusement park we found there was the annual school band competition.

From the web site, "Join us for an exciting musical parade as 55 Northern California high school and junior high school marching bands compete next to the iconic Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in the ONLY band review with warm sand, cool surf, and hot rides!

Marching bands will be judged in categories such as music, showmanship, and marching.
Junior high bands will be limited to the first 10 registered."

Kind of cool.

This is one of these projects where I can't honestly say how long it took, it just reached the absurdly long zone :) But it shows. I thought the first one was already complex, but this one is a whole new level. And although I can still point many mistakes, I see how my technique improved between the two.

Now I have to wait until Wednesday to see the first prints!
