Where Dat? Who Dat?

Eleven weeks it’s been!!!

We were in Florida and now we aren’t. Instead we’re in a different state. It’s called Louisiana. This section of it is known as New Orleans and it has buildings of all sorts of attractive colors and shapes, shapes and colors. We spent 39 days in Florida, where we met many wonderful people and did many funderful things.

People are always asking where we’ve been, where we are and who we’re with. We’re not always great about clarifying that on this thing (see the “About Us” for why), so here’s a fun list to do just that. We like lists. These are the places we’ve slept and how we knew the people we stayed with. We’ve seen many others in between.

Side note: Yes, we possess an affinity for geography. We like to think of borders as handy indications of place and culture (which they can be), but it’s important to remember how seriously these imaginary lines can affect people’s lives in real, significant, often heartbreaking ways. Borders serve as arbitrary designations for separation, upheld by people with arbitrary power and often used to exert arbitrary oppression on others. We hope you take some time to reflect on that as well as you peruse our list and accompanying photos.
