Who's Watching?

This big satellite dish (huge) was out in the middle of the Angolan plain.  It's not for regular communications.  I wonder what entity put it there.

Angolan Resort Food

Yes, it took this long to pull these photos off of my phone.
This is from one of the last activities we did in Angola - we went with CLO to a resort an hour out of town.  The place was nice, and the food was good, but, like almost everything else in Angola, it had issues.  The resort is on a lake and a bit in the interior.
The menu was fixed for everyone.  We started with little amuse bouches and then went to a frou frou appetizer.  I did try the fish course, and at the onion frizee, but I still don't get the appeal of fish.  I also had a couple of caprainhas.  The beef course was very good, as was the mousse dessert.
The problems with the place were the usual - poor plumbing and poor service.  But we're gone now and we had a nice lunch out.  I will post the photos of the actual resort tomorrow.

November Done, December Started

I decided to plow through and just finish this one.  Finished November during the week and started in on December.  Then, I'll be done for the year.  If I do another year project like this, I doubt it will be by month.

Marine Ball Gift

The Marines gave everyone who attended the ball a couple of bottles of wine!  Nice commemorative box, too.

Borders And Faces

The ears are HUGE.  I am going to be working on them forever.  I did manage to get a bit more border and some face bits done this time, though.

Trinity River Distillery.

We found a good distiller in Fort Worth and went on a tour.  Despite being a youngish company, their whiskey was very good.  We bought some, and some vodka, to take with us to Kosovo.  It should be landing at the airport today...

Tanzanite Ring

We went to the Ren Fair and shopped for jewelry, evidently.  Andreas went in to the puzzle ring shop, leaving me to look around as he put one back together.  Surprise!  I found this ring and fell in love with it.  It's an early Christmas present from him.
