In what is becoming a more and more common urban planning move, Tel Aviv is turning a former dump into a park. Interestingly, they aren’t hiding the trashy past of the space, but rather celebrating it in recycling-themed sculptures. Interesting stuff. Thanks for the link, Alina! And thanks to everyone out there for bearing with me through this most recent and most lengthy trash hiatus. I took a couple trashy photos in West Africa, which I hope to share soon but was otherwise preoccupied by the demands of the day job, absorbing the wonders of new cultures and fighting off various parasites. It’s good to be home!
