Here is a cool animated talk about the Crises of Capitalism. While the talk gives a quite surprising perspective on the current crisis, it starts with a very cool review of the explanations others have given for it.

- Vegetables: Bell peppers, parsley, fenel, celery, leek, chives, garlic
- Fish stock (you can make it yourself by cooking some fish heads for a couple of hours)
- Rouille (you can find it online or in French supermarkets)
- Fish fillets without bones and skin (cod, whiting, plaice, flounder, tilapia)
- Shrimps or prawn
- Grated cheese (e.g. Emmentaler, Gruyère or Parmesan)
Wash, cut and boil the vegetables in a big pot with not too much water. When the vegetables are boiled, pan sear the fish and scallops with butter and Cogniac in the pan and add them round after round to the pot. If the shrimps are red then they are already cooked, so add them like that to the soup, if the shrips are gray then sear them first until they get red. Add the fish stock to the pot, and make it hot but without boiling it. Serve hot with croutons and grated cheese. Dissolve the Rouille into the bowl or spread it on the croutons.

They say a picture is worth 1.000 words, so here is a 2.000.000-words-worth collection of pictures I took in the nicest holidays I had for a very long time.
Disclaimer. The quality Picasa displays online is absolutely horrible, for which I apologize. I usually scale down the pictures myself at reasonable quality, but this seems to no longer help — Picasa now scales them one more time and compresses them so much it destroys them. One thing that might work is downloading the albums you want to see as a whole using the Picasa client for Windows.
