Abroad: Indonesia


I’m missing Indonesia a bit as I was there this time last year and the year before. At the end of our training program in 2016, Tara, my colleague, and I got our hands henna-ed.

Lots of choices of sweets at Magnolia Bakery, Downtown Chicago

Weekly Photo Challenge Flâneur


I found this in my drafts bin. I thought I’d share though WPC is no more.

Flâneur? I know you don’t run across fancy schmancy words like flâneur which means objective observer every day. It’s a hard word because the subject could be anything. Since I live in China I feel I’m automatically flâneur because I puzzle over everything trying to figure out the culture. I’ve just shared some objectified women glasses available at a restaurant here.

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Follow The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements, and subscribe to our newsletter – we’ll highlight great posts. Add Media photos from each month’s most popular challenge.
