It’s Mothers’ Day here in Colombia, and as you might imagine in a country that loves sentimentality and flowers as much as they do here, it is MADNESS. The malls and shopping centers have been packed all weekend, and I’m genuinely concerned about the sanity of the people working at my local flower stand.
I’m going to Skype with my own biological mother later, but these flowers are for Cristina, my host mother here. Because host moms are moms, too, you know!
This was absolutely my favorite of the pieces I saw in the artists’ pavilion at the book fair. I wish to god I knew who the artist was, because I want a real copy of it, to keep forever.
Just look at it! Zebra toast! It is simply too good for words.
