Today’s day at work had some action in it. Management decided that it’s time we test our responses to natural disasters and staff like fire alarms. So, at approximately 11:15 in the morning all fire alarms went off and people moved in slow, highly organized manner downstairs, using fire exits , out of the building, where they all met up in the field under the frying sun. :) It was speculated that everything went good. :)

In the evening we decided that missing Mars to Earth shortest distance in the last 60,000 years was a bad thing. So we gathered at Kanguin’s place to watch Mars with the telescope that he bought for children long time ago. Needless to say, that Mars was not the main theme during the evening. Tequilla and Kanguin’s cooking skills were. :) Anyway, next time Mars is coming in about 200 years, so I’ll reserve some space in my schedule around that time. :)

Beach and photography

Yet another day spent on the beach. Today, I was so excited about photography that I’ve practically stolen Hazard’s camera to make a bunch of pictures. Everything from highway road and bushes around it to advertising stands and passing by cars got onto the flash card. Hopefully, he should share it soon and I’ll publish the best ones here.

Lately, I started to think that I need a camera of my own and Canon PowerShot G5 looks very sexy. I’ll pass by a couple of Canon shops within the next few days to check out the prices. Web prices are all about 550 USD (for example here at Amazon.com). Cyprus shops will most probably have the same price, but in Cyprus pounds, which are roughly 1.5-2 times higher than USD. We’ll see.
