The stunning Nasir al-mulk Mosque hides a gorgeous secret between the walls of its fairly traditional exterior: stepping inside is like walking into a kaleidoscope of colors. Every day, the rays of the early morning sun shine through colorful stained-glass windows, transforming the halls into a dazzling wonderland of rich hues, patterns, and light that play on the floor of the mosque.

this is so cool

Long Way Home, the organization I will be working for in November.

Long Way Home is a non-profit focusing on sustainable construction by building elementary schools in the rural highlands in Comalapa, Guatemala.

Long Way Home es una organización sin fines de lucro que utiliza el diseño y los materiales sostenibles para la construcción de escuelas autosuficientes que promueven la educación, el empleo y el cuidado del medio ambiente.
