    • Thanks, Cee …. yes those two boys were so cute .. and 30 min later another 10 kids had arrived – Hometown has graffiti school for kids and parents every Sunday. Just lovely to watch the kids. Have a nice weekend.

      • Thank you so much …. You’re not alone, I miss my travelling too. Hopefully, I can go ahead with everything I booked in October and December. Start to get cabin fever. *laughing. But it’s what it’s.

  1. Your fouth picture of a mural in NYC is by Gilbert and George, two world-famous British artists who have worked together ever since they met at art college. Their work often includes self-portraits, as this one does (the two central characters). Look them up, you’ll soon get the idea. Their style is very recognisable.

    • Karine … I tried to find out who the artists are – but Google couldn’t even come up with the mural. Spent quite a while looking for it. So now will add their names to the post. Thank you so much for sharing. I thought that was the mural you where talking about, because I had found the names behind the other once, except the one in Tbilisi. So thankful … for your input. *smile
