I can't post directly from my phone, because data service is only available as roaming data from AT&T and not from the local telco.

BUT, I have photos up at http://flickr.com/photos/xaminmo or at the The Bahamas Set. Nothing really amazing. It's mostly me documenting what I find different or interesting, rather than any "beautiful landscape" or "striking imagery".

Also, Curaçao (Caribbean Island off the coast of Venezuela) is not pronounced "kur-uh-kow" nor "koor-uh-sow", but "KEE-rah-Sao". It's based on the Portuguese word for "Cure" because sailors landed there around 450 years ago with scurvey, and the nearly inedible cultivar of oranges cured them. The oranges were Valencia oranges from the Spaniards in the 1500s that didn't do so well in the soil there.

Also, "Cay" is pronounced "Key" and probably is the same root as "Key" in "Florida Keys".

Also, The Bahamas are not actually Caribbean Islands. They're on the outside of Cuba (KOO-buh), which makes them Atlantic Islands.

Also, due to map projection issues, those of us in NorthAmerica may be surprises to note that the distance from The Bahamas to Curaçao is 1100 miles.

I still can't believe Erica didn't insist on coming with ;)

She insisted on not coming, but mostly because we ain't got no moneys right now and couldn't get the company to help out on the travel expense.

Also, her justification is that she's rather visit you guys in DE than come here. I thought "both" but whatever.

I think I'm going to hold her to the DE thing if you guys have any free time before school starts... I should email you.
