Just a quick heads up to let you all know I have a couple of Polaroids in the latest issue of ILOVEFAKE magazine. Jolijn emailed me last week asking for my age and location, and while I emailed her back, I think she decided that it was just best for everyone involved if I was Read more >>

I have an entry about my last night on the island, started on Sunday morning before my boat left, but it is long and there is a lot left to write on it, so I’m saving the draft and just letting you know that I’ve arrived safely. By the time I made it to Los Read more >>

We started in Aspro Xorio, a tiny village between Aliki and Drios, and climbed into the hills among the wildflowers, taking the old Byzantine road into the mountain.

Agios Yannis….something. Originally uploaded by briannaorg. Yesterday morning, the new students found a skull near the Cave of the Nymphs.
