Hi Adventure Philanthropists!
 
Happy Mother’s Day to all mamacitas out there! Luckily I was with my mum last week so we got to celebrate a week early!
 
Last year, I made my mum a Gratitude Jar, so each day she could pull out a reminder of all the goodness in her life. But my favorite Mother’s Day gift was a scrapbook I made of the two of us, interspersed with poems. We still keep the book current, adding a new photo each year.
 
No time to create a Gratitude Jar or photo album? No worries, I have the perfect gift for your mum: Adventure Philanthropist: Great Adventures Volunteering Abroad of course!
 
The book is available in print and eBook versions (so you can send the downloadable link in time for Sunday!). Easy-peasy shopping via Lulu.com & Amazon.

And now for the articles this week:

New Post  > Unraveling the Bay of Pigs

The Bay of Pigs is a historical site that is complex, both in terms of national history, as well as emotional meaning—for both Cubans and Americans.  As a history buff, I did a bit of research to learn more about this historic battle. Here’s my Clifts Notes version:
 

Fav Post  > Fun in the Salar de Uyuni

Here’s a collection of fun photos from the magnificent Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia. Because of the flat terrain, we were able to play with perspective and create a series of trippy photos. Here’re a couple of my favorites:

Photo of the Week > Havana Street Scene

One of the things I love about Cuba is that everyone lives their lives outdoors, on the streets. People sit in doorways, hang out on street corners, perch themselves on balconies to converse with their neighbors across the alley. It’s life in full view!
 
Hope your upcoming weekend is a rowdy one! Me, I might be resting a bit after this week’s Cinco de Mayo festivities and a mid-week Wormhole dance party.

Whatever you get up to – Live Loud!

See ya on the road,
