RE: The Leica

I'm not saying we've hit a snag, but we've hit a snag.

That's ok my grandma always says "Time heals all wounds"....

One day....maybe this June/July it'll come back up for air?

Where's its general whereabouts? Hopefully not is some cupboard of mine?!

I like the come back up for air reference!

We know where the camera is. The question is: how much air do we give the person before we start suffocating them?

Ahhh, well maybe about as much air as the last round "contestant" was given? I know after patience, humor and downright follow through - it came back for air.....are we at that point yet? Seems we just started...but who watches his/her click on camera tours.....

A reminder for everyone - well worth repeating - that if you cannot participate in a timely manner as previously described, all that we ask of each other is that we keep in touch with the forum. We are all busy with our daily lives, so delays are understandable. Just stay in touch, that's all.

Thanks for everyone's patience while we attempt to bring the Leica back into circulation.

While we are on the subject of the Leica... Let's switch briefly to the Olympus.

I've taken my allotted two shots, and the camera is ready to go to the next in line. That would be nicholai in Denmark.
I've sent a PM yesterday evening, I'll keep an eye out for an answer the next few days.

Okay, that's what I had to say on the subject of the Leica, even though most of it really seemed to be about the Stylus. Well...

A Camera is Leica box of chocolates... you never know when some one will send it to you.

Well, THAT is a good one.

Then let's not hope the camera is on vacation because: "Vacation's when you go somewhere...and you don't ever come back."

Nicholai is ready to receive. I'm not sure when I will be able to get to the post office, but certainly no later than coming Saturday the Stylus will be on the road again. How's that in furlongs per forthnight compared to the Leica?

Dear Jacco,

Glad to hear from you and the Stylus !

From NYC, until Breda, the Stylus traveled along 7012 Km. I should correct my previous calculation, since, in I mistakenly supposed (don't know why !) that Sile lives in Cork , but she's actualy in Wicklow, so the supplementary distance. From now, it was posted 66 days ago, so the speed is 106km/day, or a whooping 7400 furlongs/fortnight ;)

Leica : if supposed to be still in Los Gatos (and not heading to an hidden location in Bahamas islands), it was posted now 163 days ago, and with a crude estimation of distance, speed is :
33km/day
2293 furlongs/fortnight

Keep moving !

Cheers,

Raphael

The Olympus is on the move again. Well, probably just sitting in a closet at my local postoffice until it is put into a van or truck or on the back of a unicorn on Monday, but anyway: it is out of my hands now, and once more in the hands of the postal workers. Let's hope they get it safely to Denmark.

Such an avalanche of good news !

It's time to publish a chicken recipe, in order to bring the Postal Gods goodwill on us :


***************************
Chicken in wrapped foil with cantaloupe and coconut milk.

Yield : For 4 servings.
Preparation Time : 10 min
Cook Time : 15 min

Ingredients :
4 white breasts of chicken
1 Cantaloupe melon
1 Green Lime
10 cl coconut milk
Olive Oil
Salt, pepper.

1°) Preheat oven to 200 degrees C ( About 390 F°)
Dice the chicken.
Part Cantaloupe in four quarters, remove skin and seeds, then cut each quarter into thin strips.
Cut Lime in thin strips.

2°) Cut four squares of sulfurised paper, about 30x30 cm (12"x12")
In center, put chicken dices, cantaloupe chunks, and lime strips.
Salt it, pepper it, then drizzle with olive oil.
Close the sulfurised paper wrapping foil, and place in oven for 15 minutes.

3°) Out of oven, open the wrapped foil and pour a little coconut milk on the preparation.
Serve immediatly.

My suggestion of beverage : a little tricky to do that with this kind of plate, it depends upon your taste !
Cote-du-Rhone Villages, or any red corsed wine (a California Merlot from Gallo may be fine :) )

***************************

Translated from French, hope it's fully understandable. Don't hesitate to ask in the contrary.
