All images photographed in a single day, Sunday 13 March 2011, on the beach at Biscuit Bay, An Li

In the whirlwind of that single day, we were not able to acquire complete data for all the beautiful fashion worn. Please add comments below with your swimsuit and any other style info. Feel free to add Web Links and Landmarks.

Thank you to everyone! I never dreamt I would have such a career, but it feels right. Perhaps I have learned a little bit about myself. I hope you enjoy the issue and I hope you will join us next month for Issue No.2!

    As listed above, AI has 5 initial locations where you can fetch a “physical-virtual” free (beer & speech) copy of the magazine. It turns out that our man in The Netherlands (as opposed to “that woman” in The Netherlands) Ze Moo, has installed AI vendors at THREE exciting locations!

    And really, who doesn’t want to get their copy of the Swimsuit Edition in Virtual Amsterdam!?
