Great blog from China

A young friend from Nelson, Niko Bell, is living and studying in China. He's spent a lot of time there since high school and his blog is an interesting array of photos, stories and insights. Oh...and he's a great writer. Check out The Lin Blog

Good old Banksy - ever imaginative and always a point (or two)

Two things - unrelated

First, I want to acknowledge the global shift that is being unleashed courtesy of the young people in Egypt. It's so inspiring to see people power lead to change...now my deep hope is that the change that follows will lead to a better Egypt. Indicators of that over time? - free elections, robust parties/debate and a strong parliament - human rights on the ground, including the rule of law and more freedom of expression - a focus on an economy that benefits people, not a few people siphoning off billions to their own pockets.

That will all come (I hope). For now - yippee!!! Amnesty's call for rights here.

Second - we spent most of January in La Manzanilla Mexico and here are a few photos from the wonderful trip:

We rescued some baby tortugas from the surf and released them safely...

Anna enjoying the garden at our house...and something funny.

The (as you can see) active volcano just outside the city of Colima

The main square in Colima, Mexico - a delightful town with beauty, history, colonial architecture, warm people and orange trees lining the streets...and almost no foreign tourists...

This lovely grandma was buried by her family, to her delight (La Manzanilla)

Just another sunset from the beach at La Manzanilla (much like Canada in January as you can see)
