I just returned from a short trip to San Diego with my wife and my 12 year old granddaughter. We spent a day in Ensenada, Mexico; about an hour and a half down the coast from the the US border. It is a quaint little fishing village, and holds all the tantalizing tourist beads and baubles, which I admit, I'm a sucker for. I love color, and Mexico, as well as many poor countries, are a riot of color. But what I love about travel is how it reminds me that we are all the same. Regardless of skin color, language, culture, or location, we all have the same basic wants and needs. I enjoy looking at people, and there were some very interesting subjects to study. Sunny climates always weather working people, and leave the most fascinating trails on their faces. Now, as to the photo; Johnny Depp and Orlando bloom have been digitally woven together in this picture to such a degree you can hardly differentiate the two. Interesting to look at, but I couldn't help but think it illustrated my thoughts on how we are all so much alike.

Welcome back! You and your blog posts were missed. I'm glad you had a good vacation. :)

You're right, it is hard to distinguish the two actors in the picture. I thought it was just Johnny Depp, but that he looked a little odd. Ah, the wonders of modern technology! It is an excellent illustration of how much we all have in common. :)
