28 Scenes of Local Life
(part 2 of 2)
At times we participated in the culture around us, but a lot of times we found ourselves as observers of local life.
These are our 1st 500 Days of travel in pictures. Miro and I left on our journey on mid 2009 and (with the exception of one trip back to the states for Burning Man a month later) there has been no turning back! Our 1st 500 Days span from July 1, 2009 to November 13, 2010. To commemorate the 1st 500 Days, Miro and I have pulled 500 of our favorite images from our journey to share with you. We are releasing a new batch of photos every couple of days until we’ve shared all 500 of our favorite moments. So please do check back often. We are not professional photographers and like many, the reason we take photos is to help preserve memories of our travels. We invite you to peek into the moments that make our travels so special to us. Enjoy!
