Dans le désert de la Guajira, les enfants meurent de soif et de malnutrition. 5000 enfants du désert décédés entre 2007 et 2015. Le peu d'eau potable disponible est empoisonnée par l'exploitation minière du charbon. Une pensée pour ceux qui restent, et un hommage à ceux qui sont partis, en espérant des jours moins arides. . . . #guajira #desert #colombia #children #wayuu #trip #travel #traveling #rtw #backpack #worldtour #passionpassport  #exploringtheglobe #globetrotter #discovery #natgeotravel #earthfocus #ourplanetdaily #TLPicks #lenscaptureofficial #yourshotphotographer #ig_photooftheday #igersworldwide #travelblog #discoverearth #travelphotography #travelgram @traveler @vacations @travelbulous #igworldclub #igersworldwide #fujifilm

June 13, 2012 - Who is that mysterious man that looks over my guestroom in Tashkent, Uzbekistan? * * I reached out to @zohrastar, for the feeling she might know. Her parental family is Uzbek and she's a poet based in the USA. Thinking he was an intellectual or a writer, maybe she would recognize the face. Little did I expect her responding with the possibility it was her grandfather. Mir Mohsen Saedov left Uzbekistan in the 1920s at 18 years old. He went to China, Uyghur parts, then to India where he made his wealth. Then to Afghanistan in the 1930s because the country reminded him of Uzbekistan. After partition of India and Pakistan he went to Afghanistan. Then again war came in the form of the Soviet Afghan war and the family fled again to Saudi Arabia and finally to Brooklyn. - This was taken at the Mirzo Guesthouse which takes it's name from the Mirza family lineage. Unless the families had intermarried in the soviet era, Mirza with Mir, this may not be Zohra's grandfather. As she explained all of this to me and that there were three main families that were noble families, the Mir, Beyg and Mirza. The Mir were once amirs, the beyg were soldiers and generals, and the mirza were the scholars/scribes. They usually married within Mir, or Beyg or Mirza. - What a mystery of the man in my guesthouse. But either way, with what is currently happening in the US in regards to immigrants, I hope this story can shed light on what people have had to go through, for generations, to find an idea of home. I've NEVER met a refugee or immigrant that wouldn't prefer to be in their motherland.

Hands down one of my favorite things about travel is meeting people. On a day trip into Bosnia-Herzegovina four years ago, I met @planesandpolish. Pretty random but travelers immediately bond and continually feed off each other’s addiction. Jane and I ventured to Norway & Sweden last year and one day into this trip we booked tickets for our next trip later this year. Crazy fun when you find like minded people. @postcardsfromstef was super helpful offering us Norway tips and we’ve been following each other for a bit here on IG. Last night meeting for the first time felt like I’d know her for years. If you’re a Europhile, follow her immediately! I would have never met @livwithbiv but for her ummmmm, nail polish addiction that she shares with Jane and I’m holding her to visiting me in Texas. My point here as I ramble along is have fun, meet up with locals as you travel and don’t say “no” to new opportunities that come your way to share a dinner with an IG friend. . #smilesbringhope . . . . . #washington #seattle #igfriends #inspiretravelnow #truetexas #foodies #travelers #yourshotphotographer
