Juarez, Mexico. Photo Essay

Juarez, Mexico.

Killings show up every day in the news. Politicians on both sides of the border cast blame. Despite all drug related violence, the citizens of Ciudad Juárez, Mexico have to go on living their lives and have problems of their own to face. The current economic crisis is making it difficult to find jobs and as the city expands outwards neighborhoods are popping up without basic utilities. In early January 2009 I traveled to Juarez, Mexico with some friends to build a house for a family in need. This photo essay is about my time spent there.

Where I've Been + WordPressIntroducing the unofficial Where I’ve Been plugin for WordPress.

I decided to create the WordPress plugin after searching for an easy way to embed Where I’ve Been maps on WordPress blogs and not finding one. I’m not a developer and don’t really know PHP, but was able to hack this together creating my first WordPress Plugin. I’m open to code improvements, suggestions, and any help. I would love to see some examples of the plugin used, so if it’s running on your blog please leave me a comment and I’ll feature your site in the examples.
