“… How many times do I have to apologize for attacking the Southern Water Tribe before you LET ME OFF THIS SHIP?”
“It’s not punishment, Zuko. It’s fun!”
“THIS IS NOT FUN”

Zuko goes ice dodging. He does not enjoy it. Younger baby Druk is there because why not. :)

We had an amazing weekend with Tribe Riot at El Mundo Fantasia. We had our own wasteland encampment. We received so many compliments and everybody did look really awesome. So proud of my tribe <3 


For the first day I was more tribal warrior and the second was a bit more post apocalyptic female badass.
More pictures will follow, so stay tuned!

Chin State- Myanmar

Chin State, in north-western Myanmar, is an incredibly mountainous region, with an average elevation of 5000 - 8000 feet. Its highest peak is Mt Victoria, which rises to 10,017 feet. The Chin people often do not have middle, or last names, but one name which may reflect the achievements of their grandparents, or the grandparents wishes for the childs future. The naming of children in this region is of great importance. 

From me to you.

May you find serenity and tranquility in a world you may not always understand. May the pain you have known and the conflict you have experienced give you the strength to walk through life facing each new situation with courage and optimism. Always know that there are those whose love and understanding will always be there, even when you feel most alone. May you discover enough goodness in others to believe in a world of peace. May a kind word, a reassuring touch, and a warm smile be yours every day of your life, and may you give these gifts as well as receive them. Remember the sunshine when the storm seems unending.

Teach love to those who hate, and let that love embrace you as you go out into the world. May the teachings of those you admire become part of you, so that you may call upon them. Remember, those whose lives you have touched and whose have touched yours are always a part of you, even if the encounters were less than you would have wished. It is the content of the encounter that is more important than the form.

May you not become too concerned with material matters, but instead place immeasurable value on the goodness in your heart. Find time each day to see beauty and love in the world around you. Realize that each person has limitless abilities, but each of us is different in our own way. What you feel you lack in the present may become one of your strengths in the future. May you see your future as one filled with promise and possibility. Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience. May you find enough inner strength to determine your own worth by yourself, and not be dependent on another’s judgment of your accomplishments. May you always feel loved.

Himba People - Namibia

The Himba people are the indigenous people of Northern Namibia, also residing in parts of Angola, particularly along the Kunene River. They are a semi-nomadic and pastoral community. Himba women take on many roles in their community, everything from creating handicrafts and minding children, to building homes from mud bricks. 

In the Himba community, hairstyle is used to symbolise social status. Men often have a single plait that extends towards the rear of their head. Women have vertical plaits. Variations of these styles can denote details such as whether a tribe member is married. 

See ya at Wasteland Weekend!?

I received so many awesome pictures from our last event (El Mundo Fantasia at Landgraaf, Netherlands) , it is so hard to choose. More will follow, but not all at once.
