May 2 2001


Ah, we had a wonderful warm and sunny day today. I spent the afternoon lying in the garden, reading Amusing ourselves to death by Neil Postman. It takes a while to read it because I take notes since the book is on the must-read-list for my exams.

Meanwhile, I have decided that the National Geographic’s Guide ot the National Parks of the United States is what I want. Thanks to Jim Stegman for recommending it!

Also, I think I might want to have a look at the National Geographic’s Guide to the State Parks, a book about the 200 best state parks from all 50 states.

Beauty on the web

I received some very nice emails from Ciara, who pointed me to AfriCam, the world’s first virtual game reserve! In Ciara’s opinion, it’s the world’s best webcam, and I would like to agree with her… Her description sounds pretty impressive, but unfortunately my browser (IE 5 on MacOS 9) freezes every time I click on a link at AfriCam. There seems to be a problem with JavaScript.

By the way, there seem to be more interesting sites on Ciara’s √Āilleacht (which is Irish for Beauty).

I especially like Mysterious Places. See the Hidden Canyons.

Whoa, and look at the Buckskin Gulch Virtual Tour. Amazing! I think these are some of the best photos I’ve ever seen on the web.

More nice photos can be found at California Pictures.

Thanks for sharing these beautiful sites with us, Ciara!
