Namibia Video

Yeehaw!! I did it! I took 5 hours of Mom's video and created a 6.5 minute 'highlights' video. Or .. to hear Mom tell it I *cut out* 293 mintues of essential stuff! "But you gotta show the termite hills, and the night shot of the rhinoceros at the watering hole, and the villagers inside the smoky hut, and the waves breaking on the pier ... and ... and ..." Anyway - here it is. If you have a slow connection, you may want to click on the pause button (2 vertical bars) until it downloads sufficiently (the first time you'll need to click twice). You can see the download progress on the dark gray bar. Then you can click on play again. Click here for a highlights Video of the trip. (6.5 minutes) Pretty cool huh? p.s. we're back at home in Peace River now.

Now that's cool.

Looks like your good looking mom had a great time and saw some very interesting sights.

Wish I was there too.

Looks like a very interesting trip. The country has an amazing variety of topography. Good job of editing.

Are you going to put the video on youtube?

Diane - keep checking Mom's blog (www.marilynsplanet.com) to see if she's written any commentary. It's on her list!
Chris - I'd like to put it on youtube, but as far as I can tell, I'd have to upload the .avi file and that's impossible, it's 1.5 gigabytes! This is flash video in a .swf file embedded in an .html file. I don't know how to post it on youtube. I'll keep looking though.

Chris it makes me get the chills. I did see the Fiji part last summer, but how do I get to Bhutan? Liz

Liz - you can see the Bhutan video by going to www.jimandchris.com and scrolling down to July 2006. A link to the blog entry for the Bhutan video is there, right below the Fiji one.
