Don’t you just love it when you realize that you are too large to fit properly into the bathroom that you have to use for the next week!  I think if I was Asian this might be a spacious bathroom, except of course for Yao Ming (but we all know that he is a robot anyway).

All of my YouTube travel videos can now be viewed from this blog. I setup a video player at http://www.madmanblog.com/my-travel-videos/.  You may also get to this page by clicking the tab at the top of every page titled “My Travel Videos.”

There, you will find a large video player that should have a playlist at the bottom of it. You can cycle through the playlist to choose a video or just watch the latest video, which should be loaded by default.
