New Delhi Layover

No, I can’t be happy. But I can try to be free Only know the best in life when you’ve felt misery The worst to think is death Why we’re all afraid But life goes on and on Love is here to stay  

Angkor Wat: an Empty, Hidden Treasure

Some depressing poetry to fit the mood of this beautiful, ancient place that was abandoned after Buddhists took power in Cambodia. This bus window reminds me of Los Angeles, of dodging people dried out by drugs and the sun, drunk wanderings and eating Thai food. Arguments, lots of them, about things irrelevant, blowing through theContinue reading “Angkor Wat: an Empty, Hidden Treasure”

Veganism: a Comparison Between Thailand and America

Rainy dinner, Chinatown, Bangkok Thailand: the land of smiles and flavours. In any given meal, a Thai tongue seeks to taste salty, savory, sweet, and sour all at the same time. Markets offer fresh fruit and vegetables (what a novelty compared to the GMO-ridden produce of the United States), as well as seafood that hasContinue reading “Veganism: a Comparison Between Thailand and America”

Transcendence: Lightning in a Bottle

One of the coolest festivals I have worked because of the wide variety of people and art present, as well as the huge stage and set work built by the amazing Do Lab! Although I enjoy Woogie Weekend more because of its smaller size, LIB was nothing short of entrancing. Below I have combined photosContinue reading “Transcendence: Lightning in a Bottle”

Griffith Park Abandoned Zoo

On January 8th, Afrika and I visited the abandoned zoo in Griffith Park with our friend Taylor. What ensued were some mystic poetry and photos that could never be captured in the daylight.   Hollywood The setting sun twinkles with Bits of Hollywood glass They slice the sunset sky To make a night with fakeContinue reading “Griffith Park Abandoned Zoo”
