made it on the last day of the sanlé sory exhibit at yossi milo. caturing portraits of the youth following the independence of burkina faso from france. set beautifully in monochromatic walls, subjects pose with music icons and don fashion from street to traditional.

my week in nicaragua was amidst ongoing protests against their president and first lady, but despite that i found the people extremely warm and welcoming. road blocks were a common thread throughout the trip with a will we or won't we make our ferry, shuttle or flight. needless to say we did on all accounts, thanks to private drivers. an expense i'm not used to spending on even in my home country. safety first was what all the locals reminded us about. many were unsure about the state of the road blocks, but it was clear to set off early to bypass the blockades. i would recommend travelling this remarkable country, and hope the political situation settles so all can enjoy,and not just folks that don't mind navigating protesters.
also, i realized my iphone lens is totes covered in dust, so all pics have a natural filter.

so i recently got back into reading regularly. i've always read but this year have really carved out time in the evenings and on weekends to sit and read. it goes hand in hand with my resolution for less screen time more real time.i set a challenge for myself via goodreads every year but am currently 6 books ahead of pace! (despite not having commute time to read, i bike so reading isn't so available to me.) anyhoot, really loving the joy of literally curling up with a book and reading by daylight. a coworker commented that i was a crazy, fast book reader but i'd have to say not really. i am comparing myself to a good friend that works at book of the month club though. guys, reading is great.

handmaid's tale is back and as harrowing as ever. two episodes dropped letting us know where june and emily are. i use real names and not gilead-given ones. and we finally get more backstory on emily, played amazingly by alexis bledel. so happy this is back.
