This site was designed and created exclusively for YMC by me. The text in Profile, Gallery, Travel Logs and this page were also written by me, while the photos are all taken by either me, YMC members (including the Xtras), or one of our tour guides. Some of the text and maps in Guide & Tips were taken from other sites on the web as well as other sources. Please see reference section of this page to see the complete listing of my sources. If you own any text or graphic found in this site and was not acknowledged in the reference section, please inform me about it. Moreover, if you ever plan to use any of the original text and graphics found in this site, please have the courtesy to acknowledge us.

I have made every effort to ensure the correctness of the information in this site, so I'm not liable for any travel problems caused by possible errors or omissions.

Development Tools

One thing good about being a bum is that you have all the time to spend on your hobbies. I've wanted to try web designing but I just didn't have the time and the appropriate topic. This is my first attempt in creating and designing a site, so it's not that impressive. The contents of this site are static. This was put together using the following tools:

Macromedia Dreamweaver 4: for those who hate to memorize html tags and their attributes, but still have pop-up menus, image rollovers and flash buttons.
Macromedia Fireworks 4 & Adobe Photoshop: for graphic editing and optimization, and background images.
Macromedia Flash MX: for the animations.
