- “Torrijos: The Man and the Myth”
A photographic exhibition at the Americas Society comes to a close on Saturday. “Torrijos: The Man and the Myth” looks at snapshots of ex-Panamanian leader Omar Torrijos by Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide. (FYI- The event is free).
- “Hope: Living and Loving with HIV in Jamaica”
For Sunday, why not check out “Hope: Living and Loving with HIV in Jamaica”. It’s a multimedia project created by the Pulitzer Center that highlights the impact of HIV in Jamaica. The interactive website contains essays, poems, music, and is done in conjunction with the Center’s “Global Gateway” initiative.
Lastly, we began the week with some glum news regarding Argentine rock group Los Fabulosos Cadillacs. Yet we end the week with news from a commenter that the rockeros are planning a new album and reunion tour. (Yay!)
Let’s celebrate the news with some Quilmes and a sing-a-long to “El Matador”!
