Caminando juntas contra la violencia. Walking together against violence. Last Friday, in a Tlalpan park, Mexico city. (I am using negative space as Paula taught me:)
The Rhone river. Tuileries, Paris, 2015.
Penang doors, Georgetown, Penang. (c)ourtesy Alex. The beauty of those Peranakan houses is quite unique.
Xocotla Street, two blocks from the new house, Tlalpan, Mexico city. Xocotlan (where fruits are a-plenty) comes from Xocotl (pronounced shocot’l) = Fruit; Tlantli: Teeth; Tlan: Abundance. All in Nahuatl, the language of the ancient Aztecs. (And, no I don’t speak Nahuatl… Just translating from Spanish.) 🙂
Street art, Georgetown, Penang. (c)ourtesy Alex. I’ve seen this particular mural on several blogs. The combination of art – the two kids – and the real bicycle is very creative. So is the little boy screaming with delight. 🙂
Forum les Halles, Paris, 2016. I understand Kraken is a renowned Street artist. Sponsored by Agnés B. (See previous Pot-pourri 28)
Colonial church, Coyoacán district, Mexico city. (I may have already posted that one…)
“Volunteers to work on sunday, take one step forward.” Paris, 2015. France is one of the few countries in the world where work on sunday is practically forbidden, despite massive unemployment. French trade unions seem to believe the French workplace is set in the 19th century. I have thought sometimes to invite one or the other union leader for a month stay in other countries. And compare working conditions. 😦
Polanco district, Mexico city. 2016. “The restaurant is that-a-way”. Guess the type of food?
Colonial house, Tlalpan district, Mexico city. Last Friday. (The sun has come out; works wonders on the colours). The houses are mostly from the late 1600, or early 1700’s. Some streets are still cobbled, as you can see on the right.
“Free the birds…”. Penang again. (c)ourtesy Alex. Another well-known Georgetown mural. I like both the artist’s talent in using a simple air-vent as a basis for the painting and the birds flying away.
Speaking of which, thank you for flying Equinoxio Airways. Selamat malam, good night, or selamat pagi, good morning, wheNever you are.
