The second week – Snippet version 3/11 – 3/22

It’s hard to really explain the rest of the trip except jotting down repetitious posts and boring you with details. Sometimes the only way to tell a story is through pictures in order or out. It’s not that I’m lazy, actually I am. Here’s a story written through pictures, enjoy.

My hero, my Inspiration, my Grandmother
