NORTH POLE PICTURES
After surviving 3 suicide bombing attacks in Egypt in 2006, I decided to do a crazy thing to balance my life back to normal after this ordeal that killed 26 and injured 150 people. For the 2008 eclipse, I went to the North pole on an ice breaker. I saved my money for 2 years, didn't eat and was able to go!!! The pictures are on line but I still have to put descriptions and put them in order...so in the mean time, enjoy them!
