Maya street art

“Copy paste”. I’m using the new bl..dy editor for the first time. “If it works don’t fix it”. Don’t you guys ever learn? Of course I can’t align the text as I want… Grrrr. (Just found the way!) Swimming through the waters of the programmer’s mind. Murky. Akumal by bus. Rastafarai! I’m feeling a bit…

Travellers

Moustache. Traveller 16. Under Picasso’s shadow. Protection. Travellers 17. La Défense. “Have I turned the gas off?” Traveller 18. Line 1. “Have suitcase. Will travel.” I found those stuck to a wall in the Marais, after a disappointing Cartier-Bresson expo. Placed high on the wall and protected by glass from morons and taggers. (Hence the…

Street art Bogotá. Cont.d

“We are watching you.” Usaquén neighbourhood, Bogotá, Colombia. 2018.   The dream. Autolike. On 7th Avenue. How many eyes? “Madame rang?”. Cachivaches, a fab house supply store in Usaquén. “1946. El pollo vive.” 1946, the chicken is alive. Er. Chicken? Yes. That is street art. No arguing anyone. “Don’t make my brown eyes blue”. Note…

Street Art Bogotá… Cont’d.

Holy Friday. While the more respectable family members went to Church, my niece Cathy, her boyfriend Julian and yours truly went on a Street Art Safari in the meanest streets of Bogotá. Julian at the wheel. I rode shotgun. Cathy had her own camera at the ready. And a handle on the baseball bat under…

LA Tour…

The Eiffel tower was never meant to last. Built by Gustave Eiffel in 1889 for the Universal Expo, as a testimony of French state-of-the-art (then) technology, it was supposed to be torn down at the end of the Expo. Most parisians then deemed it ugly. Little did they know. It is the second most visited…
