Highlights of January 2008

What were we reading in January 2008?

Moonhie Fest

On January 5, we went to a party at Moonhie and Jerome's. They were without power at the beginning of the party but the power came on mid-afternoon.



 

Post Ranch

We spent a three-day weekend January 11-13, staying in a treehouse room at Post Ranch Inn, one of our favorite places in Big Sur.

The view from our room.







On Sunday, we hiked Mt. Manuel - a major hike - 11 miles, 3500 feet vertical - that we have been wanting to do for a number of years.



Mobile

While at Post Ranch, we purchased a mobile by Laurant Davidson, a student of Alexander Calder's, from Ventana. We have admired this mobile for a couple of years and finally decided it would look great in our living room.




Morroco

The week of January 14, Jon went to Morocco for the final joint APAC/E EMEA operations review. We began with a team building exercise that involved donkey polo, camel rides, and 4 wheeling.

After the meeting, a group of us went to a tented camp in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains where we were treated donkey rides to the nearby village, a sumptuous meal, and a variety of entertainers, dancers, and musicians.
