What midnight looks like on Christmas in Chirillos, Lima, Peru. We're 6 blocks to the Pacific ocean, and about 6 blocks to the mountains. This was our view tonight of the grand celebrations. Merry Christmas, everyone! Feliz Navidad por todos! :)

This man, Danilo, was trying to sell us a flute. I was more interested in seeing the sights, my main reason for being there! This is in Antigua Guatemala

En Español y Ingles... mi video.. This wonderful ritual in Cuenca, Ecuador is about burning all of your old bad memories, people, experiences you'd rather forget and negative stories you held about yourself, etc. Everything is written on paper, shoved inside cute little paper machier statues, along with firecrackers and mini explosives to add to the danger and fun of saying goodbye to that which we do not need anymore. I waited 6 years to be able to travel to Cuenca Ecuador and participate in this art therapy ritual and took it seriously...but I was drunk.. ha ha.. and screaming my head off a bit... but I wrote 6 pages of stuff that is burning away in this fire... in my Pikachu paper statue! This was a very emotional and also therapeutic night. So, Fuck off to 2016.. and a warm welcome to 2017!! :) I am sure most people watching this would agree.. 2016.. wow.. some great times and some horrible moments for the world as well. I dedicate this to all our favorite celebrities who passed this year and to all the friends and family we all lost this past year. They are gone, not forgotten and hopefully in a better place. We remain here, burning away the old to make room for the new... Blessings to all who watched my crazy video and read this note, May you find peace, love and prosperity in the new year. XOXO, Mermaid Girl

The Policia decided to search this car I am guessing because this man was sitting on his car hanging out instead of entering the park and sitting on a bench instead. Note the fact that 2 police ride one motorcycle together... Saving gas? This is in Antigua Guatemala, across the street from my apartment.

Chinatown, San Francisco, California Feb. 2011. Year of the Rabbit Chinese New Year's Parade. This is the largest parade for the Chinese New Year outside of China. It is a yearly event which takes place usually in February in San Francisco. It is a 3-4 hour long but highly fast moving parade (hence the very blurry pictures at times! And missing legs as they are going too fast for my camera to capture!) and I have condensed it here for you in 10 minutes with lively music from Louis Armstrong, the Ultimate Collection. First song is Shanghai Shuffle, followed by Sweethearts on Parade, Perdido Blues and finally, Cabaret. Hope you enjoy it! :) Love, Mermaid Girl (C) 2012
