Hey, guys. I forgot my glasses on the airport in Maputo when I left Mozambique, and I really thought I had a pair here in Sweden… but nope!. So I got these terrible ones. here are my new glasses, one for when I want to look like a total brat, and the other for all the other times =)

Been home now in Sweden for about a month and one of the things that struck me is the information that targets me where ever I am in this enlightened society. Here the access to any information is not really a choice, you will get to know what happens on the other side of the world or even local boring business news whether you want or not… It’s all up in my face everywhere. Obviously today with the world in your pocket, (most Swedes have an advanced cell phone) a high symbolic capital involves having the latest updates from the most important happenings, hence if you know – you are in!

But let me tell you something opposite, I spent one year with no clue at all what happened outside the village I lived in (in Moҫambique). Spent two hours on the internet a week (if I was lucky) … just to check my mail! And it was such an ease not to know!

A paradise is a place of rest from stress and information! Awareness… yes,  it certainly is good, since it makes people do something…

Because remember, when you know, you also have a responsibility to act! (get of your butt!)… and many times when we don’t or can’t – it hurts … or? I mean here I sit with a big ass TV looking at starving children…

Ajajaj (not Spanish “jajaja!”) … I wont be staying in Sweden permanently, that for sure!

Peace out ya´ll

Here is a small video presentation I made for a group of young Danish people from Bogense Friskole, who visited ST Vincent. Had a great time as I got to follow them out to the Grenadines islands and see another beautiful part of Gods creation.

Universally on the news this morning: Osama bin Laden dead! Everybody cries out for verification, at least some pictures and rumor has it that it will come. But even so, he was the reason The US was in Afghanistan, Pakistan and who knows where else! Does this imply an end to war…  the troops will return… and then the US won’t spend all that money on their military… and then Obama will become a hero for saving their economy…  Ah its all good!

No al quaida is still there and its only the end of a symbolic figure who didn’t manage to do much at all these last years.Although I don’t think this will lead to “peace at last”, I surely hope it would!

It only took the US 10 years… only cost about 100.000+ civilian lives…  only cost the US 1.291 BILLION US $… and I don’t know how many soldier casualties, how much collateral damage, how much political conflict.. etc! but it is now done!… or?

I will only celebrate death I would if it ment bringing life, which is yet to see.
