Che is Everywhere – Even in a car’s headlight

Sancti Spiritus is a small city in Cuba. It has a very pretty centre and the people are really friendly. Near the centre, on one day when we were there recently, I saw this Opel Kapitan in good condition.

Week-End de la Céramique

Last weekend we went to the Week-End de la Céramique on a sunny but cold day in Morges on the shore of Lac Leman in Switzerland. It takes place over two days during the Fête de la Tulipe. SONY DSC. Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk

Travelling – The Yellow Taxis of Asuncion

These days as we only get so many weeks holiday a year and have to spend the rest of our time working to pay for them we do go to this part of South America a lot because we have friends there. So here is a photo from a central and very wooded square in the center of Asuncion in Paraguay. Taxi! Taxi! Taxi! Asuncion It was interesting to see all the yellow cars lined up waiting for customers. Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk

Shirts for sale – A Street Seller hangs out his wares in Asuncion

A multitude of sports shirts were on sale here in the center of Asuncion. Paraguay is an interesting place. I still find it strange that the capital city closes at midday on a Saturday. Anybody Want a Shirt Street Seller Asuncion That said it is almost a forgotten gem among South American nations.

Argentine Wild Cat – Spotted in the Japanese Gardens of Buenos Aires

Watch out! We were fortunate that this wild cat was happily resting in the beautiful Japanese Gardens of Buenos Aires.

For a different place to travel to Argentina has much to offer. Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk

Using technology and having respect for your fellow human being

I was in a supermarket the other day and was slightly annoyed by a hip and possibly cool young dude on his mobile whose conversation was being shared with many of the rest of us shoppers whether we liked it or not. What really really annoys me though is the lack of respect for the staff working in the supermarket. I saw this, let’s call him ignorant fellow for the sake of politeness, ordering cheese from the cheese counter whilst still carrying on his vacuous conversation. All people in our service industries should be able to say “I won’t be serving you unless you engage with me and get off your phone”. Mobile technology is wonderful, loss of being respectful is appalling. Every human deserves respect. And then I found this photo which I think says it in some way. Mobile Phones Keep Quiet Oxford It was taken in a small shop selling coffee and tea in Oxford, a great little place that had obviously been visited by the same sort of ignorant cool dude that I had had to suffer. RESPECT, it costs nothing. Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk

Street Artists – the best artists

Forget all those celebrity artists and take a walk round any city to look at some real works of creative art. In London it is around the East End, especially around Brick Lane and there are so many examples that change quite rapidly. It is an outside art gallery and you need to be looking up and down as well as around you. If we weren’t looking down we would have missed this Art You Might Miss 2 East End Street Art piece. It is probably no more than 20cm tall but it is so clever with the shadows drawn onto the pavement as if the sun is rising from behind where the actual wall is. If you are in London for whatever length of time you should visit this part of the city. Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk

Paris in the Springtime – Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris In the Pink

Paris is a small and beautiful city with its narrow streets and wonderful sites and experiences. It is especially so in the Springtime as seen here when we visited the cathedral of Notre Dame when all the blossom was on the trees. Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris In the Pink So when are you going?
