This is just beautiful, funny and all around greatness
This is my seventh apartment in two years. SEV-ENTH.
‘So Ricci, when are you coming back?’ is a question I get a lot, from most everyone.
‘I don’t know,’ is the only truth I can tell them.
Here’s a few things I do know:
The scarves in the corner of the bedroom photo are from Missouri, Spain, Senegal, Chicago.. I don’t know where else. I try to get a scarf from everywhere I visit. They’re lightweight, I use them and they’re purty.
Our bed hasn’t yet come in (been ordered from a carpenter who will make it). It will be my first real bed in two years.
Somehow we managed to fit all our clothes into one tiny armoire. Yay us!
The living room is emtpy in this photo, but now it has four comfy pieces of furniture which were re-covered in an unfortunate African cloth that is orange and black. Those were the colors of my high school teams — Go Bombers!
Every room in this house opens to the outdoors. This is my favorite kind of house.
The best home I know right now is that man sitting at the too-small desk that I just got made from a carpenter. (should have ordered regular size ).
and now for the tour..
I got this from a stellar photoblog (American photog based in Liberia).
Had a deliciously old school Dakar weekend the past few days: Took photos. Danced till 7 am. Ate Ceeb with Senegalese family. Watched a Foot/Soccer match. (Mbaye scored two goals and an amazing windmill-kick-thingy assist pass–woop!)
Can’t yet share from Friday’s shoot, which was the West African leg of an Elite Look Model Search. At the press conference before this event I got stuck in a small elevator (think Euro elevator) with SIX OF THESE MODELS. Six women — all at least a foot taller than me (they had heels on). To be honest, I don’t even know if they saw me in the elevator. It was ok though, because I had my camera. I always feel taller with my camera on me.
