Apologies for being in absentia recently (especially as I have a great guest post coming for y'all, and I hate being behind schedule!). I just returned from two weeks in Colombia, traveling through Bogota, Santa Marta, and Cartagena, and after a couple of days in Cartagena, which is basically what the surface of the sun would feel like if it had 90% humidity, I am very happy to be chilling at home on a rainy New England day, posting hotos for you to enjoy!
And now I have the necessary kick in the ass to get my photos of Bermuda pulled together to get me back on track (...)!
|Cairo, 2010. I was struck by the monochromatic nature of this city from above, especially because at eye level there are amazing colours everywhere...|
|I mean, it might be travel porn, but Giza. Those three little pyramids are for the wives... PUNY I TELL YOU!|
|Varanasi at dawn, from the Ganga.|
|Things that make me die laughing in the Agra train station, India. It had been a rough day.|
|In the city of Boudhanath, Nepal, this temple sits next to the world's biggest stupa, and MY GOD THE COLORS.|
|Boudhanath, with the Himalayas in the background. I ate one of the best thalis of my life at a rooftop restaurant as I took this picture.|
|The view from the train in Thailand, and no, I don't remember which leg of our journey. I just love the angle of the train and the trees, and the tiny amount of orange and pink.|
|Being in Tokyo during hanami season is unreal, the city is covered in light pink snow. This is a map of Ueno Park, where we went (in the freezing rain, and right before a hilarious and super-relaxing session at an onsen) to see the cherry blossoms in all their glory.|
|More blossom, but this time in London, 2011, heralding springtime there. Outside Southwark Cathedral, I was wandering (almost certainly with snacks from Borough Market), and saw these flowers fighting to come out.|
|Parisian graffiti, 2011.|
