One of my favorite Chinese trucks8 viewsI've been trying to get a good picture of one of these ever since I first saw one during our trip to Sichuan. They're fairly plentiful in the south, it seems, but I've never seen one in Beijing. It's one of my favorite of the odd-looking Chinese vehicles I've seen, mainly because it looks so homemade, like some farmer just harnessed an engine to his oxcart. It's rear-wheel drive, I think, but when it turns it pivots at a joint just behind the driver's seat. The engine is probably a single cylinder, and its 'pop-pop-pop' sound is loud as hell.mudmine

Our last stop in Santorini: The Abandoned Pumice Quarry!16 viewsSaving the best for the finale, you know. Evidently they used to mine a fair amount of pumice from the island, though today the quarry is abandoned. 'What do they use pumice for, beside removing calluses from feet?' you might ask. Well, according to the Mineral Information Institute, pumice is still used today for building materials such as cinder block and concrete, and for, among other things, washing blue jeans. Was the quarry a victim of the end of the craze for faded jeans? Will it now be revived by the current fad for those jeans that look like the owner has sat in a tray of bleach? Only time will tell... mudmine

grinning monkey14 viewsThe Cham kingdom occupied the central part of Vietnam from the 2nd to 15th centuries, pinched in by Vietnam to the north and the Khmers to the south. Like the Khmers-- the people who brought you Angkor Wat-- the Cham people were very much influenced by Hinduism, so a lot of the sculpture features Hindu gods such as Shiva, Lakshmi, Ganesha and the rest. This, though, is just a monkey, I think. mudmine
