Facelift

No, I haven't disappeared!...I have decided to change the platform for this site, I will most likely move to wordpress. It's going to take quite some time to migrate all the contents, I plan to do it during the Christmas holidays so I can start afresh in 2011.

An individual just doesn't have time to develop the necessary components to keep up with the pace.

Update (01/27/2011): I just changed my mind and decided to keep the architecture as is after all. After studying wordpress more thoroughly, I realized that I would have to redevelop too many things to migrate and it's just not worth it...

In the valley of Iya

After my brief stop in Okayama, I followed my road until Iya valley, on Shikoku, spending two nights at a mountain hotel. I voluntarily chose a remote and little frequented area in order to recharge my batteries, far from the hordes of tourists...
