  • …how Argentina elevates graffitti to an art form.
  • …photos of interesting street signs from around the world.

  • Christine presents Open Market in Granada, Nicaragua posted at Me, My Kid and Life, saying,

    “Having been to open markets in France, Italy and Spain one experiences a distinct difference both in attitude and culture at the Open Air Market in Granada, Nicaragua”

    Zhu presents Signs in South-East Asia posted at Correr Es Mi Destino, saying,

    “I love tak­ing pic­tures of signs because they tell so much about a coun­try. For instance, Canada’s bilin­gual “stop-arrêt” sign is unique, and so are the many weather-related warn­ings, “ice falling” being my favourite. Dur­ing our trip to Sin­ga­pore, Malaysia and Thai­land, I col­lected var­i­ous signs. Here are the best ones!”

    Pamela Jorrick presents Lassen posted at Blah, Blah, Blog, saying,

    “One of my favorite things about homeschooling is planning trips to go along with things we’re learning about. So, when I recently picked up a volcano themed science kit, I decided it would be fun to take a field trip up to Lassen Volcanic National Park to go along with it. “

    Teresa Kakilis presents a series of photos entitled London a-calling posted at Nothing Finer Than saying,

    “I went over to the other side of the pond… and did I have a bloody good time! (Warning: billions of photos coming.)”

    Michael Turtle presents The art of the oppressed posted at Time Travel Turtle, saying,

    “…in Argentina, graffiti is everywhere and has been embraced by the community. It has been taken to a level above petty vandalism.”

    Kat presents Ten things I love about Bantayan posted at The Unstressed, saying,

    “Bantayan is such a beauty. I get mesmerized by looking at photos which consequently brings me to dream land and I start reminiscing [about] the 3 days I spent there without writing them down.”
