Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


Monday means photos!

Yes, it's another picture day here, and that means a few more pictures of my journey through Tasmania in 1992. We'll get off the island soon enough!

First, our map: today we're in Port Arthur, on the extreme southeast of the island. You can see it if you squint:

Here's the actual Tasman Peninsula. It's practically an island. Port Arthur is there on the south coast.

Port Arthur is the famous penal colony in Tasmania. We wandered around during the day and took a "ghost tour" at night. One of our stops was the Haunted Chapel:

I can't remember who haunts it, but I didn't see anyone. Posted by Picasa

Here's the hospital in the center and some of the grounds:

This is the penitentiary. Note the dramatic skies!

Finally, we have a nice photo along the coast. A lot of Tasmania is like this - it's a very beautiful place.

More exciting content tomorrow! Still, these are nice pictures, right?

I dunno... maybe it's haunted by the 35 people who were massacred at Port Arthur in 1996?

I woke up this morning with a spring in my step because it is Greg's photo day.

Afe: I forgot about the massacre. I remember reading about it. What a horrible thing, especially because I was there a few years before.
