  1. Very much enjoyed the trip. The level of talent never ceases to amaze. I thought the first was my favourite until I saw the rest, then gave up choosing one.
    The only thing I strongly object to is being returned to a place called ‘dow’. I have never been there, I did not buy a ticket to go there and I reject your impertinence to simply inform me that that is where I will be dropped off or ‘beamed’ sire.

    • My dearest Daphne, I do understand your dismay. “Dow” would be a sort of boat, somewhere East. I’m afraid I will have to double-check Scotty’s corrector. (Thank you ever so much for pointing out this dreadful, unacceptable typographic error)
      Now on the next trip, we can drop you in Hyperspace at your request. However I must emphasize that the Hyperspace suit is not included in the fare. And temperatures are close to zero Kelvin. (We do accept American E-Stress though)
      Yours truly,
      Reginald.

      • In line with your favourite hero’s resolution to all things, Scotty should be fired forthwith.

        Also in line with your favouite commander in chief, well done for accepting the praise for the trip and scapegoating Scotty for the negatives! 😀

  2. Striking stuff. I wonder when the Prissy Prude Society is going to insist that twiddly bits in Florence must be covered up?
    That painting of Aung San Suu kyi makes her look everso beheadicated. Somebody’s wishful thinking?

      • I have yet to see or read a declaration on her part. I sense (but then I might be third-world paranoid) that her new “freedom”/responsabilities may be more limited than one could think. I suspect a deal, oriental-way: you can do or say certain things, but do not interfere with others. Who knows?

  3. It will be interesting to see if Aung San Suu kyi is remembered for recent news or for What she was instrumental in doing in the last twenty years. Sadly I presume it will be for recent atrocities.

    • (U2)
      Now and old? Yes. The contrast – to me – shows that (hu)mankind has not changed that much. Always the same concerns. Love. Happiness. Spirituality. But I too like the contrast. (Maybe that is why I love History) 🙂
      Be good Mia

      • Brian, you always share such lovely photos. I don’t think we can get away from ourselves, now or then. Impossible. Indeed it’s what make us human, telling our stories in the form of art is a big part of it. Thank you for your thoughts. 🙂

  4. Love the street art photos Brian! And yes, Aung San isn’t popular with the Rohingya but her language against this group is not supportive, so not surprising…sadly, she is a puppet for the military.

    • Thank you. I agree with you: massification does reduce quality. But then… one has to become more selective… 😉 I’m in Bogota right now where there is a lot of st art. Some very bad some very good. I’m making plans with my niece to go street art hunting this week. 👀
