Apparently Google are rolling out map info for several European countries.

That means my friends in Granada can now find themselves.
My guess is that Chris Pirillo's Airplane Safety Instructional Video is going to be a massive hit over the next few days.

Tree Blogging

I went to the Atlantic Forest, but I don't seem to have got many pictures of trees.

Here's something, at least a little bit foresty.

Big spider

There's a very big spider that lives under the house where the owners and the building workers are living (Serra Bonita is under construction).

Everyone calls her Rosa.

This isn't Rosa, but one of her (slightly) smaller sisters. (About 7 or 8 inches in diameter.)

Humming Birds

Every afternoon, the humming birds come to be fed. They've got so tame that they'll land on your hand. This, however, is definitely the most dramatic photo I got.

See that grey in the background? This is cloud forest and the clouds roll right up the valley and engulf the research centre.

Moonrise 2

Just got back from the Serra Bonita eco-reserve - a mountain in the Atlantic Forest, southern Bahia.

Beautiful place, and an ambitious project created by a very impressive couple in their sixties. I want to say a lot about this, but no time now. More pics soon.

Cool! One of my students from last semester did a pretty good, simple Windows drawing program which exports WMF files for his Programação Avancada coursework. Now he's put code up on the net.
