California bikers

Lisa Ling has a piece on CNN: Inside the Mongol Bikers yesterday, Oct 7. I saw this pack of riders on our way from San Francisco Int’l airport to Monterey Bay Aquarium. I had a full view of them but as I was trying to get a better angle, the concrete barrier came into view. Too bad. The lesson? Take the shot at the first moment then looking for a better angle.

Monterey Bay Aquarium

886 Cannery Row
Monterey, CA 93940;
their site and on wiki

It’s on the Pacific Ocean. A wonderful place to linger. To spend a day. To learn. To enlighten. It happens, they’ve a special night and also a children sleep over night. We went back there after dinner again.

At the xxx, under the dome of sardines, it reads: The sea is as near as we come to another world which is so true.

It’s not humongous as to overwhelm one.
