Wishing Tree at Little Tokyo

One thing that I loved about NYC and now, Los Angeles, is that they have a series of cities inside the major city. You’re walking around and suddenly you’re transported to a completely different reality and culture.

Secret Santa Comes Earlier

Every kid’s dream is to wake up and see the Christmas’ Tree full of gifts. When this fantasy can become true for a much larger audience, this is even more wonderful.

So, that’s exactly what a stranger did yesterday: he went to the Pembrey country park,¬† South Wales, and spread several¬† presents on the trees, from Teletubbies and Mickey Mouse to the Winnie the Pooh puppet, everything very colorful and cheerful, besides a nice greeting note to each one of them.

This is the second time this Secret Santa does that and, unfortunately, he is now facing litter charges just because he may be causing disorder due to his generosity. This is another case where a random act of kindness can cause you troubles… : (

The more than 600 toys will be donated to children’s charity (which is not bad at all). But I believe the whole population should gather and defend this noble man, and use him as an example to be followed all around the world!

Starting from myself! : )

My Christmas Tree

The moment I arrived at Rio, I noticed that it was already completely decorated to Christmas, so I decided to make my own collaboration to the public space:

I searched for tweets including the words: war, peace and Rio, wrote them on pieces of paper and folded it in the shape of a pigeon.

There it is: my peaceful Christmas tree by the side of a bike way!
