Beautiful day in San Francisco.  This is a view of the Bay Bridge with Treasure Island in the distance.

We are currently in Beverly Hills for a fundraiser at The Witches House.

It was originally built as a film set in Culver City in the 20’s before moving to its current location.  It was featured in the movie Clueless.

Pool at the Carneros Inn.  Our group just ran the wine country half marathon, finishing in the gorgeous town of Sonoma.  We got wine at the end!

The Tribune Building and the Wrigley Building sit on either side of one another, right on the Chicago river.  They both showcase the beautiful Chicago neo-gothic style that made the city famous for its architecture.

This is the first of many posts that I will be doing about our recent trip to Vietnam and Hong Kong.  My wife Camilla and I went to Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An, and then Hong Kong on a great trip that just finished.

These are photos of the wondrous Halong Bay.  The Bay has approximately 2,000 small, mostly uninhabited limestone islands with vegetation.  The only way to see it is to take a one night boat cruise on a “Junk”.  Our boat was called The Violet and was designed in the famous IndoChina style of the 1930’s. 

We had a great time, looking out at the sea, meeting new friends, visiting a secluded private beach, and walking through a cave. 

Here are a few of the photos from our Halong Bay excursion.  Definitely worth the 4 hour drive from Hanoi!

While doing a tour at the Lake in Central Park, I saw this strange looking site: a Venetian Gondola!

I think that the gondolier took a wrong turn at the Grand Canal…

Maybe he was sick of all the Americans in Venice right now for the Biennale and wanted to escape to New York.

Does anyone know more about this phenomenon?

Check out these smiling faces on top of the rolling chairs on The Highline.  I did a tour today for a class of 2nd grade students at Columbia Grammar.  Our field trips weren’t nearly as fun…
