30 years ago, the Virgin appeared in front of a lady from the town of San Nicolas. Since that day, between 200 and 400’00o pilgrims walk from Rosario to San Nicolas every year to commemorate the event. Not an easy trip since 60 kilometers separate the two cities.

10 years ago, your friends would vaguely know you went to Paris for a weekend and eventually see a picture or two after the fact. Nowadays, you can “tweet” or “status update” your love story live every minute.

“Kissing on top of the Eiffel Tower”
“Shopping on Les Champs-Elysées, happy!”
“Eating Mussels at Leon”
“Standing in line at the Louvres”
“Sitting on the Pont Neuf, a stranger just took our picture.”

Two years ago, our round the world trip brought us to Puerto Lopez on the Pacific shores of Ecuador. There we rested in the fishermen village for close to a week. Talking about fishermen, many of them would work long hours in the morning then spend the afternoon playing cards. Just like these two kids, soon sailors to be.  (click on picture for high res)

As a kid, I spent most of my time playing football after school. And there was no better day than a rainy one, when you could slide, jump or even dive in the mud puddles that would eventually form on the field. Obviously, it would always end by a “take off your clothes and go wash yourself … right now”.  (click on picture for high res)

Drove down to Buenos Aires for a birthday party. Spring in the air and those warm nights are just around the corner. (click on picture for high res)
