Receiving Complaints Unit

Seen in Giza at the pyramids… I wonder whether it is an honor to be promoted to the Receiving Complaints Unit. I hope they do get their fair share of complaints about the handling of camels and horses near the pyramids.

I just got back from a trip to Qingdao in China and will have some good stories and photos to share. In the mean time, here is what has to be the world’s smallest wine menu. Which makes sense if you consider that Qingdao is famous for its beer…
