Two quick phone shots from our last day in Venice for Carnevale. I LOVE the first pair (I’ve seen that man around a few times, and he’s such a performer), but there’s something that makes me think the second two deserve the award for best costumes of 2017!
Off to London tomorrow.
Another year of Russian aggression, and another year our Christmas cards to relatives cannot reach the warzone where Russia is still invading Ukraine (not that it makes the news anymore!).
I can’t even begin to explain how angry I am with everyone declaring 2016 the “Worst Year Ever” just because of Brexit and Trump. There’re TWO MILLION Ukrainian refugees (while countries like Germany – European countries – take in so many Middle Eastern refugees, they will not help Ukrainians).
Several of my Ukrainian family members have died since Putin invaded, but nobody could care less about Russian aggression until it was Britain and America who suffered.
Personally, I think of 2016 as the year of selfishness. It’s only the “Worst” year if you usually just watch reality TV.
I’m terrified for Ukraine, for my friends and family there (many of whom are already refugees), and for what Trump will let Putin do to them. I’m furious that so few people think Trump’s serial sex abuses matter.
I’m horrified how self-centred people are.
