Can you see me?
We surely see overcrowded classrooms and poor infrastructures, but we also see the teachers doing their best to improve the situation in these remote rural communities. We see electric power and computers. We see students, their eyes wondering outside of the classrooms, for simple curiosity or in search of their dreams. Can you see them?

Desaparecidos, una vez mas
I was in Argentina when in 2016, 40 years after the dictatorship that caused 30,000 victims, the Macrì government announced that the number of desaparecidos did not reach 7,000: an attempt to erase the memory, bringing the victims back to the invisibility from which they had emerged thanks to Mothers and Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo.
The Erawan Shrine
The Brahman shrine of Erewan is said to continue to bring those who visit good luck: people pray to him for everything from a new child to a lottery ticket. Throughout the day (and night), you'll often see crowds paying their respects, presenting flowers and incense sticks, fruits, and teakwood elephants. Traditional dancers are hired by worshipers who hope to gain merit or give thanks for prayers answered.
