afghan girl 565x400 The Afghan Girls Escalation: Say Hello to SharbatPerhaps the most famous photograph of a child ever taken, an Afghan girl staring intensely into the camera, appeared on the cover of the June 1985 issue of National Geographic. The image of this girl with the striking, greenish, marbled eyes, and telling expression, seemed to say so much about the life of a young girl in her country, and the life she was destined to lead. The future did not look bright for this beautiful child, who appeared defiantly precious as she stared into and beyond the camera as the photo was taken. There was truth in her eyes; and it was both enchanting and haunting.  Having been reproduced a number of times, the photo has captivated millions around the world and given credence to the old adage ”a picture is worth a thousand words.”

A few years ago, National Geographic went on an expedition of sorts, to find the girl whose face they had made famous back in the summer of 1985, and as you can see in the picture above… they found her. [ Continue Reading ]

Latvian restaurant Hospitalis is making people sick, and it’s not what you think.

Inspired by a recent trip to the ER, which, by the way, was terrible ( the song “They Don’t Care About Us” ran through my mind like a broad on a treadmill – the lyrics about being invisible and being ignored really stand out.) I decided to write about this pop restaurant that I heard about a little while ago. Nestled in the youthful capital of Riga, Latvia, Hospitalis offers [ Continue Reading ]
