Proper documentation

Abu Dhabi so far has been an interesting and occasionally frustrating blend of the alien and the familiar. It's hard to explain sometimes. You say, "Hey, I passed a bunch of guys huddled around a TV shop on the way home from work last night, and they were watching WWF"* or "I'm drinking a mocha on an indoor ski slope," but can words really convey the vast, fascinating seas of information inherent in those situations? No. No, they cannot.

So I try to take pictures. But I hate being that guy who carries around a camera all the time. So I use my cell phone for impulse photography. The problem, though, is that my phone is barely a good phone... and it's an awful camera.

In conclusion, that's why I'm not posting the otherwise funny picture of guys watching pro wrestling on the sidewalk in Abu Dhabi. Blame Nokia.

*reliable sources tell me it's now the WWE. I have no idea what the E would stand for.

Sounds like it is time for a i-Phone

Entertainment, I believe. The World Wildlife Foundation took offense at the similarities between acronyms, especially since the gorillas were clearly being mistreated.
