Venice is really beautiful. The only bad thing was that there were just too many tourists there. I guess this is a curse of any beautiful place: if it's beautiful, people will rush there and it's not as beautiful anymore...

Venice is so beautiful that even
photos taken by amateurs like
me are pretty :P

Another view of the buildings
taken when we were heading
to San Marco Square

I really love the long and
slender alleys in Venice

Another alley. There're
hundreds of alleys like that

This cup of espresso and the tart were
super yummy! We had them at a pastry
shop called Rizzo. That little piece of
chocolate was an ingenious compliment
to the espresso! They're so good that
I'll go back to Venice just to try
them again :)

Love the composition of this

So it has been three years

Today marks the third birthday of this blog. As you should have noticed, I post much less frequently now. Someday I'll devote my time to this blog (when will that someday come?)...

Yes, I still love blogging!

Happy Birthday Alex's Weblog :)

St. Peter's Basilica

I'll be posting some of the better (well, better relative to my photography skills...) photos of my Europe trip in coming posts. Hope that you'll like them :)

So, let's start with St. Peter's Basilica in Rome:

You gotta cover enough
portion of your body to
get in :P

It would be great if the woman
wasn't there? There were just
too many tourists at hot attractions
like St. Peter's Basilica

I really like silhouette shots :)

"It appeared to be a green light to me"

A physicist was pulled over by a police officer. The police officer asked

"Do you know that you just ran a red light?"

"No. It appeared to be a green light to me. Maybe I was driving a bit too fast."

"Alright sir", said the officer with a grin on his face. "I'll have to give you a speeding ticket then since you must have been driving at around, hmmmm, 110,000,000 mph. With an extra penalty of $5 per mph over 60 mph, it's just a fine of 550 million dollars."

"Ehhh... Actually, I think I ran a red light."

P.S. Created based on a question in my college physics textbook :)
