I decided to focus on Asia for the ‘connect’ project. Asia was my first international travel and I still feel a deep connection to the people and the places. Contrarily, it was also a difficult place to connect to as is was so very different from anything I knew as that point in my life.
When I was young, I was fearless. I knew that no matter what stupid situation I got myself into that things would work out, even if they were bad for a little while it would turn around. As I grew some things started not working out (can you believe it??!). It has made me cautious, which is a good thing to a certain extent. I am financially stable, I have a place to live and I always have coffee nearby (a silly priority for some but an absolute must for me). But my caution has created some regret. San Juan is one of those regrets. My visit there was hot, humid, dirty and beautiful. As soon as I got home I vowed to move there for a year and learn Spanish. Real life got in the way, so here is a little slice of my regret.
When I was young my mother told me, like most children, not to look at the sun. Being a defiant little shit I did it anyway, but good parental guilt kept me from doing it without a camera lens in between. So I have this fascination with the sun and here’s a few sunsets from one of my favorite cities in the world, home.
