From Jake:
Some pictures that almost speak for themselves...

Jess is now eating oranges. To some of you that matters not. To some of you that is big news.

I will let this photo speak for itself completely.

Nick R., if you are reading, this is mostly for you.

While we were stuck in Rabat for 4-ish days awaiting our visa to go to India, we had plenty of time to see all the local sites. This is an ancient Roman Empire mini-city full of temples to different gods. The Roman "chellah" was later walled in by one of the Moroccan kings, and then part of it was leveled and had a mosque built over it. Roman ruines, forground; Mosque has the tower and newer construction.

Not too much Roman remains, a few structures, lots of column fragments, an octagonal pool, a few artisan workshops.



A view of the inside of the Mosque. Pretty incredible architecture.

Tom's gonna love the ass karate sign! I can't wait to show him this! We saw a commercial Wednesday night that advertised a new board game. It was a 15-second quick spot, had a family around the table, playing, with all the in and out camera wildn'crazy angular shooting, and the name of the game?

Fact or CRAP.

The best part was a 10 year old kid responding to a question by going, "THAT'S CRAP!" LOL!
