Way too much.

LIKING LICHEN

In the natural world,
we're surrounded by lichens.
On trees, on rocks.
All around us.

They are living, growing things.
Yet, we pay little attention to lichen.

There are some 20,000 known lichens,
composite organisms which are 
part algae, part bacteria
and living on a host organic surface.

They're not plants, not moss,
but a symbiotic fungi growth.
In a wide range of colors.

Lichen are thought to be the
"oldest living thing."

(Next hike, see how many
different lichen you can find.)

STREET GRAFFITI

The streets of Bogotá
make street graffiti
an art form.

Students walking home
hardly noticing.

baked for her horse, Prince.

A birthday party is scheduled
later today,
