December 8, 2004 – Okay, so I'm digging deep here folks, but one of the best things we found to do in Bangkok was hopping on and off the Chao Phraya ferries. This video shows the long tail boats, Wat Arun and the general river mayhem, which we thoroughly enjoyed.

February 20, 2015 – On the way into work Friday morning I pulled over for this grab shot with my phone.

November 15, 2008 – On our way back to Punta Arenas from El Calafate via Rio Gallegos (affectionately known as the ugliest city in Argentina: ... a moniker with which we wholeheartedly agree), we spotted the lonely wreck of the steamship Amadeo.

Apparently she was built in Liverpool in 1884, sold to J. Menéndez of Punta Arenas in 1892 and finally beached here in 1932.
