Exchange Students, 1955

1955

I found this interview of exchange students from Pakistan, Nigeria, South Korea and Finland fascinating. I like how the interviewer is in the background and how thoughtfully these young people consider American freedom, dating and education.

It would be interesting to see a 2020 version of this interview.

Sculpture Saturday

Gold Coast, Australia

Saturday Sculpture was hosted by the  Mind over Memory blogger

To join in, what you need to do is:

1. Share a photo of a sculpture

2. Link or ping back here to Ruined for Life because Mind over Memory’s had to stop hosting. Between a new graduate program and work, she’s super busy.

It’s a fun challenge. Give it a try.

Sepia Saturday

Every week Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share images inspired by a prompt. This week the photo above inspired me to find photos related to ice cream.
