A photo exhibit by GMB Akash at the Benaki Museum of Athens. 21 May 2016
This exhibit brings the refugee crisis to life. My compliments to Mr. GMB Akash for his efforts in documenting the people caught in this struggle. The work is artfully presented, using only the photo roll paper set low to the ground, which is so often our vantage point when looking at children.
I recently had a 3 day weekend in Amsterdam and stayed at the wonderful Andaz Hotel in the Prinzengracht Area of Amsterdam. Located in a beautiful area – perfect for walking and bicycling along the canals, and visiting the museums and so many wonderful small shops. Small shops with unique items and many of them handmade!
But the Andaz! It was amazing, with wonderful rooms; art in the rooms and throughout the hotel, great service, and great food. Usually hotels have a fault or two, but none were evident at the Andaz! The room was an open plan with the sink in the room, along with the shower, and only the toilet and the walk-in closet were separate from the room.
Too bad it was a weekend of all day meetings and too bad it rains cats’n’dogs in March in Amsterdam! Still lots of fun!
