These photos alone make me want to visit this gorgeous city that’s bursting with culture, flavor and style. I always talk about making a mad dash somewhere exotic to revive me from the grueling winters in Portland. Maybe I’ll splurge for Rio…

3D glasses on. Ready to go.

Before Christmas, J and I, like the rest of the general population, headed to the movie theater to see if Avatar in 3D was really worth all the raving. And let me tell you, it was more than worth it.

The vibrant neon colors in the jungle on the planet of Pandora combined with the sheer hotness of leading lady, Neytiri, played by real-life hottie Zoe Saldana, is almost too much to handle. Let’s just say walking out to your car after two and a half hours of watching this gem leaves you a little perplexed. Personally, I was wondering why we had to ride around in a car in the first place.

What really got me was the amazing connection with mother nature that the Na’vi respect and make the central focus of their lives. Back on Earth, there is much to be learned from these fictional beings. Respect and loyalty to the other inhabitants of this planet should be our duty. As humans, we are special unlike all other creatures on Earth.
