Miniko’s favourite favorite book, “Moti Moti No Ki”. It’s almost a classic. I found the English translation version.

Printed Matter gives a chance equally to every artists. it’s a only and special book shop. It’s should have a Nobel peace prize someday.

There are piled-up books in my studio. But it is only a part of my library. There are more books in my storage area. I am an artist and also running a tiny art gallery. My library/storage area is a kind of hallway between my studio and my gallery. And the area has so many other things. It was difficult to pass by.

I noticed that there are people called “minimalists” in Japan. They don’t have many belongings. I don’t think I can be “minimalist.” However, I saw some youtube transmission of their programs. I was influenced by their channels a little. I organized my hallway/library/storage area a little, and now I can pass it through, okay. It still has a ton of stuff, however.

ダン蔵 goes to have an iced latte and a croissant at Cafe Grampy every morning. He left behind his keys and wallet at home this morning. This is the 2nd time he forgets to bring them. After he came back home, he told me that the barista was kindly served him the iced latte and a croissant without charging him. This is also a 2nd time. So, I run to the Grampy for an apology. The cute barista said to me that you guys come here all the time, so, never mind.
What an angel!

On the way back home from Bogota. the Beautiful sky and the sea overwhelmed me. They are amazing. However, they are actually crying for global warming.

Last time I was in Bogota, 2019, I notice many soldiers with rifle around everywhere. But, this time I stay different part of the city and I didn’t see any soldier, but, many security people with a dog. I think it is safer city than before? In Bogota, all soldiers and security people are young and fit. In NYC, I see many soldiers at the Grand Central station. Most of them are…. fat, … or big. I wonder if they can move quickly if something bad happens suddenly.

I met a sweet couple in Bogota. But, he charged me for the photos I’ve taken. Be careful tourists!

It’s an ongoing project, Rechard Rogers building in Bogota.

A nearby building of the Richard Rogers reminds me of an Architect, Ermö Goldfinger ( 1902 – 1987). The villain character on 007, Goldfinger, this name derived from Ermö Goldfinger because he was a mean guy.

An image from the hotel window that I am staying. Cloudy. But, warmer than NYC.

No time difference between Bogota and NYC. I don’t have a jet-lag. However, I feel distance.

It was a night flight. We arrived at Bogota after midnight. It was one hour delayed because of rain.

I am packing for traveling tomorrow with my husband ダン蔵. He is sleeping now. All of domestic chores and errands are my tasks. We are going to go to Bogota, Colombia.
