I either post 3 pics in a row or nothing at all #hihihaha
Pro tip: if your photo subject's wife insists on taking you out for post-shoot breakfast tacos at "the best stand in Monterrey", just GO. These don't look like much but a mi dios! #tacos #travel #onassignment
“The rebel soldiers took me from my village when I was 12 years old. I was given as a wife to Joseph Kony, [leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army]. I was soon pregnant with a boy.
The baby… it disturbed me. And I figured, it didn’t stand a chance out there in the middle of the fighting. I also worried: what if he inherited his father’s mind? So one day, I walked into a millet field. The baby was asleep, and I laid him on the ground. And I walked away.
I spent several hours thinking about it. And I finally returned. The boy was still asleep. I picked him up and took him back. We spent 7 more years
out there, until we finally managed to escape.
I hear my neighbors talking as I walk by. They say 'Look at her eyes. She’s crazy from all the time she spent out there in the wild.' My son is a wonderful boy. He loves me; I love him. He’s the only person who helps me. Sometimes I look at him, and I remember that time when I almost left him in the millet field. And I think to myself: 'I would have made a mistake.' "
The Ugandan government and the US army recently announced they are calling off the hunt for LRA leader Joseph Kony. Today, many child soldiers and former LRA wives -- and their children-- have returned, and are still figuring out how to live their lives back in society.
will be sharing some of their stories in the next few days.

Mini marzipan manzana. Delightful.
Interesting presentation, delicious tastes.
Director Ezra Edelman had no desire to rehash the OJ Simpson story. He told us why he made an 8-hour film about it anyway. Listen to the latest episode of #OnAssignment
to hear about how he made the documentary, Producer Tamara Rosenberg's herculean job of getting high-profile guests like Marcia Cross to speak on camera, and how they ended up creating a film about the history of race in America. Link in bio.
