Colombia es pasion

Colombia has problems for sure–but its people are still proud of rich traditions and their land!  Do you hear that acordion?–that Vallenato, that Cumbia??? :)  Check out the diversity of musicians/singers in light of everything we’ve learned about diaspora.

Where Children Sleep

Where Chilren Sleep is a new design book by James Mollison.  It’s phenomenal–you see the picture of the child (children pictured from around the world and very different realities) next to a picture of the place (s)he sleeps.  This is particularly relevant to us when we consider conditions in Spanish-speaking countries along with other parts of the world.  The link below takes you to a virtual version of the book.
