Funny combo of experiences–we watched Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Monday, then had an amazing visit today to the Jaguar Rescue Center in Playa Chiquita Costa Rica.

Tweetus Interruptus

After a recent tweet failed to send, I ended up in my Twitter Drafts folder for the first time. I was surprised to see that the handful of Tweets I had posted while on a trip to Shanghai last summer were sitting in the Drafts folder with “Failed to Send” labels.

I’ll leave the implications alone, but here are those images:

Fast Foodie

I love a high-end meal, but when it comes to food, context truly is king. It’s often the cheap eats–the no-money-in-your-pocket, nothing’s-open-this-late, no-choice-but-what’s-in-front-of-you–feasts that end up being the most memorable.

European Graffiti

It’s striking how much free expression is happening on vertical surfaces everywhere. Here are three of my favorite sightings from a recent trip to Europe.
