Since the 1970s a Man Has Been Planting a Forest Larger than Central Park, One Tree at a Time

Nestled in Northeast India next to the Brahmaputra River sits Majuli Island, a giant sandbar that happens to be the largest river island on Earth, home to some 150,000 people. It is also the location of the 1,360 acre Molai Forest, one of the most unusual woodlands in the world for the incredible fact that it was planted by a single man. Since 1979, forestry worker Jadav Payeng has dedicated his life to planting trees on the island, creating a forest that has surpassed the scale of New York’s Central Park.

The slow internet I had in Rome discouraged me from continuing this blog. Then when I got to China, Tumblr was blocked.

It’s been a year and a half since my last post but I think I should still continue.

As a rebirth, here’s a picture of street wear in China.

Maroon, gray, black and olive green.

Swiss guards are the coolest. I want to be friends with them. 

Early at 5:30 a.m. when I arrived with some Loyola students and asked some Swiss Guards using Swiss-German dialect where to wait, they responded so casually in dialect and even joked around. That made my day.

So yesterday I told you all that students in my program got invited to a Papal Audience today. Here’s a brief log of what happened.

Tonight for my Italian Cinema history class, we watched the film Ladri di bicilette (De Sica, 1948)

It instantly became one of my favorite movies. The scene in this picture (which I took from IMDB) is set in the market at Porta Portense, which I just visited on Sunday with my roommate.

I made a lot of discoveries regarding my research (I can’t believe as recent as this Sunday that I realized not every Roman shops on Via del Corso).

I’ll post pictures and findings from the market tomorrow, after I go to the Papal Audience.
