Observed in Tokyo


A Shibuya street band, playing an energizing mash-up of 1970’s funk and old-school big band. Sounds crazy, but it worked!

Observed in Lake Tekapo

The Church of the Good Shepard was built on the southern shore of picturesque Lake Tekapo in 1935, and has since become a favorite spot for tourists and weddings.

The lake gets its blazing turquoise color from “rock flour” (sediment) in the water.

Observed in Buenos Aires II

And notice the international symbol for “no flatulence” on the left hand side of the sign.
