Graffiti Photo Journal

by Elena on September 22, 2009

IMGP3147Graffiti has been around for quite some time, perhaps since the Ancient Greeks and Roman Empire (doesn’t it seem like the Greeks and Romans invented and did just about everything). While some may view graffiti and other forms of art in public space as ‘vandalism,’ it is a valued form of expression for many others. When cities work in conjunction with artists, the art becomes more than a few tags on someone’s wall.IMG_0983

Walking around Montreal, in particular downtown or the Plateau, it is inevitable to pass many murals. The city of Montreal encourages, or at least allows, artists to display their talents outside of art galleries for all to see. Similar to the way the city handles other forms of artistic expression, such as Tam Tams, Montreal does not discriminate.

I’ve heard people describe Montreal as a ‘boho’ city, and for lack of a better description, I’ve used ‘boho’ a few times myself. The modern appropriation of the word bohemian would have us believe that everyone walks around in open sandals, flowy, floral skirts, and with, how shall I say, a lax concern for personal hygiene. Loaded stereotypes aside, historically a bohemian is an artist, and adventurer who strive for their romanticized beliefs, and in this Francophone/ Anglophone city, that spirit lingers.

Miraflores Photo Journal

by Elena on May 21, 2009

Miraflores was one of my favorite neighborhoods in Lima, primarily because of the vibrant colors of the buildings. Part of my travel experience is wandering around streets and neighborhoods and Miraflores makes it easy to appreciate. The flâneur will feel at home walking the quiet residential streets as well as the busy squares and center.

Lima proved to be a great city to start off my South America tour. I felt comfortable walking around on my own (during the day) and with friends at night. Miraflores is a safe neighborhood in Lima, therefore you should be cautious and avoid other neighborhoods at night (and even during the day). At my hostel one of the employees highlighted on a map which area I should avoid. You can ask your hostel or hotel to do the same. Below are some pictures of the Miraflores neighborhood.
