i've been cooking christmas stuff the whole day and i can tell that spending the day in the kitchen with these degrees isn't too nice. tomorrow we're going to be just the two of us - with our little dogs of course. they're also going to enjoy a great christmas meal, as we bought them some canned food, which sounds yummy even to me. we'll combine some finnish and chilean traditions, like open the presents after the midnight, eat pipareita, rosollia, joulutorttuja and kinkkua (finnish delicacies), have a little christmas palm tree (as there aren't any real pine-trees and i don't want a plastic one) and light candles. i wish you all very merry christmas! i hope you'll have great vacations!

the last picture taken by my love.

on thursday we went to a park nearby as i'd been asked to take pictures of some dogs looking for a family, like our little chicoca (first and last picture). we recently found a beautiful inca collar for mimi and a little scarf for chicoca. they're such a sweeties! the big dog with cleopatra eyes is living in the park. he's very into playing with mimi's ball.

i was trying to convert our bedroom into a camara obscura and it actually worked out surprisingly well. this is all part of one of the final exams i'm realizing for the university. i'll post some more pictures of the work in progress as i do some more tests. what do you think? i can tell that the sensation when i turned off the lights and realized it was really working was kind of amazing.

the burqa project.

i'm making a wonderful project for my university. we were supposed to choose a human organ and it's action. i picked out the skin and as it's action cover, protect and isolate. as my work i sewed a burqa as it fulfills all these. i asked my friend to put it on and we went to the central square of santiago to take some pictures of people's reactions. as this arabian clothing isn't a very familiar sight here all the people were staring at her. some of the expressions were quite funny, like the little girl who told her mom she was scared and almost started to cry. another girl even took of her sunglasses to see my friend better. tomorrow i'm going to present some of these pictures and the burqa to my teacher and my mates. i hope they'll like it!
