around the world [Day 2344]


One of the local bars, Spike’s, has this “Around the World” beer system. You get a card with 40 different spots on it, to coincide with the 40 different beers from all around the world that they have available. For each one, you get a mark on the card. After filling up the card, you’ve gone “Around the World” and you get a T-Shirt, they announce it throughout the bar, and you get to sign the journal.

Tonight, my friend Amy finished up a card that she had started back in 1993. It’s pretty impressive that she’d managed to keep the card for that long! It was a momentous occasion, and here’s a shot of what she had to say in the journal.

Had a tricky time deciding between two photos today for which should be the official photo of the day. Ultimately decided that the leaves were just a bit more interesting to me, especially due to the background. And besides, I’ve already had tons of rose photos.
