World's Largest Ball of Paint: Alexandria, IN, USA


Today, I was briefly a Guinness Book of Records world record-holder: painter of the world's largest ball of paint. In Alexandria, IN, population 5,145, Michael Carmichael and his wife Glenda are the proud owners of this massive ball of paint. The story of how it came to be is a good one.

Sunday Snapshot: Swinging through summer


June 2016, Monteverde, Costa Rica.

Taken on a disposable camera, this turned out to be one of the best shots that we got during the trip through Costa Rica. Monteverde, the "cloud forest," was best experienced at elevation. It really did feel like you were zipping through the trees a la Tarzan and Jane.

Sunday Snapshot: Library Lane


March 2017, Kansas City, MO. The real library is just down the street but they decided to share some literary love along the walkway. More cool photos and information can be found here: http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/kansas-city-library-s-giant-bookshelf

Destination: Costa Rica

somewhere near Monteverde, featuring wild horses

June 2016 was the end of my second year of medical school and the beginning of a trip to a new place - Costa Rica! We rented a car (highly recommend getting 4x4) and hit the road for a weeklong tour of central and northern Costa Rica.
