This week I found hope in the webisphere of global culture. These are just some happy hope links!
The title of this article sums it up: The Side of Afghanistan You Don’t Hear About. Cultural events, poetry readings, folklore festivals… Afghanistan actually sounds like a fun and inspiring place to hang out!
And here is a film with so many hopeful faces that it will make the rest of your day shine!
And here’s one from election day that I kind of forgot about. But how cute is this: Kenyan twins named after Barack Obama and Mitt Romney!
And, finally, this cartoon sums up perfectly the typical reaction of an American living abroad to the election results. Hopeful? Not as much as the story about Afghanistan above, but still.
