The Guestbook Project - Part 4 (guest starring Isaac Jaffer Kanji)

I begin the next Guestbook Project post with a gratitutous shot of Isaac.  He attended his first Christmas party today and approached his first meeting with Santa Claus quite seriously. You see, he's already exploring his career options and wanted Santa to know that he is getting in touch with his inner reindeer just in case Donner or Blitzen get stuck  in Germany before Christmas eve.  The snow in Europe is treacherous...for Europe that is.
Mommy Vanessa coaches Isaac through his first job interview.

This installment of the Guestbook Project is brought to you by the beautiful Claire from Bicoastally.  She's one of my favourite bloggers, penpals, g chatters and friends. 

Claire lives just outside of San Francisco.  These shots of the Golden Gate Bridge offer two different perspectives.  One beats with the pulse of the city while the other overlooks the beautiful water below.

Wouldn't you love to take a trolley to work everyday?  How refreshing!

Claire studied at Tulane University and recently took a trip back to New Orleans. When I get there, the first thing I want to do is listen to a booming and soulful brass band.

Having been a choir girl myself, I loved seeing this postcard of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.  Listening to a choir in a big space and breathing in the music as it fills up a room is one of my favourite things to do.  I've never seen a choir as big as this one which is made of 360 volunteers.  Am adding that to my bucket list!  

This postcard is breath taking.  The fluidity of the sand, the beautiful colours and the subtle patterns it creates is so wonderful to look at while shiftless, solid rock looks down on it.

Claire lives in Oakland and I love reading about her adventures in and around the city.  These postcards gave me a better idea of why she loves her home. 

I love the vibrant colours that peek out from the ancient ruins and old architecture of many Central American sites.  Read about Claire's recent trip to Antigua here. 

Thankful that it IS a small world after all.
