Ducklings in Paris

A duck family enjoys a stroll on the lake in Parc Montsouris, Paris, France. We were there a few months ago and recommend this park as a nice place to relax away from the crowds of the other more popular parks in Paris. You can go to the Parc Montsouris by taking the RER Line B, and stop at "Cité Universitaire".

Embedding High Quality Videos

This is a cheat sheet to remember how to post high quality videos on this blog, but this can be helpful to you too!

Summarizing from two original posts on My Digital Life:
- To link to the high quality version of a YouTube video, add &fmt=18 at the end of the published video URL (More here).
- To make sure the Flash player displays by default the high quality version of a YouTube video, add &ap=%2526fmt%3D18 at the end (after the &hl=en&rel=0 (or similar) sequence) of the two video URLs in the html code (More there).
Et voilà !

Waterton-Glacier National Park

We are just back from our annual hiking week in a U.S. National Park. This year, we went to Waterton-Glacier, at the border between Montana and Alberta. This video shows an overview of the park. Hikes through Alpine landscapes are more varied than in other U.S. parks, and made the week very unique. More to come once we have processed the pictures!
