I have just returned from The Hajj.

At this point in time I am at a loss for words to effectively describe my Hajj. Suffice it to say it was an amazing, spiritually-uplifting and moving experience. Additionally, I was part of a great group and made many friends.

Here is a gargantuan collection of pictures from the pilgrimage (taken with the Samsung SGH-X820). Unfortunately, the best pictures were the personal ones (and I am not publishing those!). You will have to settle for these.
