Ohio-Trip Roundup: Misc Fun Photos

Our trip to visit my folks in Ohio ends tomorrow with a long trip back to Kyoto. I've still much to post from this short two weeks, but here are some random photos to fill out my last night...

We ended up visiting ZipCity four times. I posted about it earlier, and will again I'm sure.

After breakfast we headed out to the local dog run to give their [...]

Visit To Milwaukee, Day 1

It's been ages since I've been able to visit my friend and best man at my wedding Ram Kulkarni and his wife Julia, so I took a long weekend to pop over to visit him at his house in suburban Milwaukee. (I had been scheduled to visit last January, but had that canceled by the "arctic freeze".)

Popping over from Ohio involves an hour flight to Chicago, and then a 20-minute flight to Milwaukee...

It was my first time to meet his boys Shiv (8) and Arjun (4), and for Ram and Julia to meet Anthony (11).

The nearest shore [...]
