Organs donation

I’ve been listening to Radiolab podcasts for years and I love them! I always find their stories and research interesting and with this episode in particular I felt we can change the world. Maybe sharing this episode will help some people understand how important organ donation is they’ll become donors of their own or a loved one’s organs.

Rice fields in Guinea Conakry

While I’m stuck in Ireland due to the weather conditions, I started playing around on the Web, something I rarely do anymore. Here’s a photo I uploaded more than five years ago, at my return from Guinea Conakry, where I took part in a language documentation project for the Mani people. Although my job there was to document the Mani language, when I was living with the Mani I tried to suck in their way of life. For instance, I went to the rice fields at different times of the year in order to observe and learn how they grow rice. I really like the colors in this pictures, so I thought I’d share it with you :)

Have a great day!

La Mola i St. Quirze

La Mola i St. Quirze, originally uploaded by martapiqs.

I uploaded this picture on Flickr last Fall, just before moving to Ireland. I was trying my dad’s reflex camera in my hometown.

I’m posting it here today because, with the upcoming trip home next weekend, I now miss the place I grew up and my friends a lot!

The shot was brought up to my attention today when I accessed my Flickr account and found a request to use it in Wikipedia.
