26 Pictures From 2016

Wow. Long time, no blog. Seriously, I think this is the longest time I have gone without posting – I suppose every writer is allowed writers block right? Anyway,

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I spent this holiday season in the States with my family and without the Peruvian Christmas tradition of paneton (ask me if I’m sad about it). Between being sucked into the black hole of cable television and stuffing my face with copious amounts of food, I arranged my pictures from this past year. It was a nice was to reflect and go over some of the memories I made in 2016. Now I’m no Bukhtawer (check out how 2016 went for her in Ethiopia) but I try to be the best iPhone 5c photographer I possibly can be. So check out some of my faves from the last twelve months – 2016, you were one for the books.
