Roadside Cravings

Why does food taste so good on the road?

This blog should be called my camera phone blog since I seem to take pictures mostly with my phone.

Pretty Powerful

I realized that I don't take a lot of photos, but I like to share interesting media.

From the NY Times, a photo of a Khmer mother holding her child who is suffering from malaria.

Avatar and the Middle East

Avatar was a really good movie; it hit a lot of cultural and environmental issues. I just watched a clip in the LA Times of Palestinian activists protesting, and some of them were dressed up as the Na'vi people to draw comparison between their situations.

It's just amazing when life imitates art. I'm adding one more thing on my wish list: learn more about the Middle Eastern history and current situation. I have limited knowledge in this area. I read Khaled Hosseini's Kite Runner which takes place in Afghanistan. Does this count?

We need a sign to remind us: sharing is caring. Have a wonderful weekend.
