LLAP around the world

When traveling with me, one must take a moment to be photographed doing the Vulcan salute. It is known. (For real.) (Seriously.)

Here’s a round-up of a few of my favorites.

On the wall around Graceland, during my birthday trip there in 2011 with Jonathan, Alissa, and Kate. (After this picture was taken, I can clearly remember Kate saying, “Was the hand thing really necessary?” Yes. Always.)

The Other Haifa

A friend of mine is visiting Haifa this weekend — I’m slightly jealous, so I’ve been reminiscing… This is from my second big visit to Haifa, while my parents were in town. We stayed on the mountaintop instead of on the coast and had a very different experience. First, the view was a little different.

We also had to deal with the crazy confusing roads a lot more — just getting into the parking lot of our hotel involved a couple of different attempts and a lot of circling around. Luckily, we had a car with a good engine (“shitty trunk…but good engine”).

Back in Akko

Another thing that I did with my parents: Went back to Akko! We made a few stops along the northern coast and spent one morning in Akko. This time it was cold and rainy.

On the drive in, we stopped by the house with all the statues for a closer look. I’m not entirely sure what’s happening in this bas-relief…
