Photos from Cairo

As I mentioned in the last post, after spending two weeks in Doha last month I decompressed for three days in Cairo. Decompress is probably the wrong word to use; Cairo is the most frenetic town imaginable. Great fun if you like to take photos, mine can be found here.

Name this bird? (and I'm back)

After two weeks of CITES, the Convention of International Trade of Endangered Species (in Doha, Qatar), followed by a three-day stopover in Cairo and five days of yard work and household chores, I'm getting back into the swing of things.

Work should be interesting -- everything has revolved around CITES for the past six months. We failed miserably, getting absolutely no protections for eight endangered sharks and Atlantic bluefin tuna. It's time to put the experience in the rear view mirror and move on now.

I have plenty of photos from Cairo that will take a while to sort out, of course, but in the interim I thought we could play a round of "Name this bird."

I also have a photo of CJ amidst the cherry blossoms for those interested...
