“Standard deviation, Scotty? I bet this was suggested by Mr. Spock?”
“Aye, Sir, it was. The above is an 18th century pirate on Fisherman’s wharf, San Francisco. Plus or minus two centuries. Sir.”
“Right. Ready to jump everyone? Jump!”
“El globo”. Passion for pastry. Mexico. 2018.
11th century. Normand warrior bidding Adieu to his Lady ‘fore the battle of Hastings. (Sketch by my mother, Renée)
“I’ve lost the world. Where is the world? Have you seen the world?”
Tlalpan, Mexico city, 2018. I like that particular wall, next to an art workshop. Every six months or so, they paint the walls white for another work. You’ve already seen frogs, volcanoes, el pájaro loco (the crazy bird). Based on the No parking sign, I think the world was illegally parked and towed away.
Tulum, 1992. One of the very last cities built by the Mayas (13th-15th century AD). A very well-know and popular site among travelers as it is the only one by the sea. Not my favourite Maya site though, (I prefer Uxmal for one) but it has its charm. (Jump, jump!)
Sphynx, De Young museum, San Francisco. Origin and age unknown. Early 20th century American?
The first in a new series called “Loos of the world” I have recently been gathering material for.
“Viejo Buenos Aires.” Old Buenos Aires. At the “Zorzal”, a great Argentinian restaurant in Mexico. Best meat north of the Río de la plata.
“Many years later, As he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendía would remember that long gone afternoon when his father had taken him to discover the ice.” Gabriel García Marquez, One hundred years of solitude.
Water spirit, Tlalpan. Detail of a mural already posted. The water company has struck a deal with Comex, the #1 paint company in Mexico, (and Converse, no strategic logic) to paint over the hundreds of water wells in the city. All paintings need to be inspired on water. That makes sense. Jump, Scotty.
Sexy angels, Zona Rosa, Mexico city. (Look closely)
London street, Mexico city. Embassy of Forever. (Hurry. Visas are in high demand)
This one is for Jenny at Bulldog travels. A great blog:
