Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

March 9th, 2017

I could tell Mike was going to have a strong character from the moment I saw him. He was standing behind his hot dog stand on Pearl Street talking tirelessly to each one of his customers. On top of those conversations, Mike was constantly engaged with two of his buddies that had also set up shop with him. Except those two gentlemen just seemed to be keeping him company for the mean time. I introduced myself to Mike and the other two gentlemen asking if I could have a moment of their time.

My Experience at Tiger Kingdom in Thailand

September 30th, 2014

Millions of people travel to Thailand every year. Known for it’s immaculate waters, beaches, infinite shimmering temples and their undeniably delicious Thai food, there is a part of Thai tourism that many people don’t discuss, the bad part. Although Thailand has so many positives there are a few negatives worth talking about before making your trip across the world. The negative includes their poor treatment of animals for human pleasure, i.e., elephant riding and visiting tigers. I am not an animal activist, however, I’ll admit I am an animal lover and after visiting Thailand and experiencing... Read More
