I received this handmade postcard from one of my BFFs from a trip she took to Argentina. This is an artist's rendition of the Perito Moreno glacier in Patagonia.
I think of it as Perrito Moreno (little brown dog) because this depiction reminds me of a dog's molars.
Anyhow, I wanted to pop on here and share a movie--a brilliant, feature length documentary about the Lost Boys of Sudan. To say theirs is a moving story is a grand understatement. It's rare to see such heartbreak alongside such hope. If you've never seen this doc, or never heard of the Lost Boys, definitely check this film out.
