If you plan to go to Denver, drive to Colorado Springs it only one hour away and truly worth the ride. You can stop at Manitou Springs, discover the Gods Garden, Pike Peaks, and so many more things that we could do!

Cos Rodeo :

It’s never too late to see your first Rodeo.

As explained to us, the animals are not mistreated they are cared for as “rock star”. 

I have to say that it seems much harder from a human perspective. What a challenge to stay on these bulls, horses and sheeps ( junior only).

We went to the rodeo organized by CosRodeo at Colorado Springs, in the noris penrose arena. Great choice, people were very nice to us. lots of activities were provided for the children who were treated like kings. From mounting horses, playing darts on ballons entering in tippis, hearing stories, a Beautiful parade, Live concert for all after the rodeo. 

The diner was good and served in the arena, smores were available. 

After the Rodeo they inflated a hot air ballons and we could all take turn and jump in.

It was a perfect evening, I did not want to leave …

We also visited the US Air Force Academy, very impressive. They have a chapel to welcome all faith Protestant on top, Catholic, Jewish, Buddhist on the lower level, and we saw some indications for others religions ( muslims Methodist and more ).

Wishing you a great week end 

This week I luckily red a post on this splendid exhibit of Steven Meisel, at Philipps’ offices, 450 Park av, Nyc.

The info was given, by the blog “almost Free nyc” :

Happy,I was, to be able to break out “the daily schedule” and walk in.

I’m sharing with you some of the picture, permission was granted by the women working in Phillips!

I love the sentence, “at this point we work as a gallery, so if you want to buy, you just have to pick it out the wall!”, maybe what happened to the lady with the apple?

Here’s my favorites:












One of my favorite garden, and place in the world.

A hidden place, in Italy, Cattolica, A place of peace and quiet in the middle of agitation and crowd!

I ll share soon more about it in a further post! So keep posted…

Hope you enjoy this perspective, this focus on the fountain from an other point of view.
