🎵"Holding On" - The War On Drugs🎵
It's quiet this evening. Eerily so. It feels haunted with spirits from another era. Although my squeaky wet sneakers give it a comic relief. The streets are lined with stately historic antebellum homes and lush with vegetation, but even with the live oak canopies and strings of lights, I keep questioning each turn. A step too far in the wrong direction and I feel a bit misplaced until I find one more light to draw me in further. One moment I find myself on a lively street downtown with cafes, restaurants, hotels, and bars and the next I'm on a somnolent residential street. However, one of the great things about this city is how well it is planned. You can always find your way on the perfectly gridded streets planned by the City's founder James Oglethorpe, and there is a square every few blocks - each one lined with large trees and with a monument, statue, or fountain situated in the center. The city by day and night feels about as different as day and night itself. There is a whole new energy as the city bursts to life again from out of the jazz clubs and into the parks and stores. But even when it sleeps, it is never really sleeping. ---

Cancun, aptly labeled as the “Glistening city of the Caribbean sea”, is an immensely gorgeous tropical nirvana has become synonymous with luxury, palatial resorts, deluxe hotels andworld-famous beaches. Often billed as America’s ultimate spring break destination, Mexican haven is also well-known as an intoxicating playground with wild parties and a crazy nightlife circuit. When spring breaks sets in, Cancun flaunts its youthful hippie nature, luring throngs of sizzling eye candies, partyholics and college kids. Trust me, there are a lot of things to do in Cancun for young folks who want to get drunk and tanned on spring break. Thank u @cindygrey for this awesome video!!! Keep traveling

Today I was told two encounters in which one of my friends and a family member have both dealt with in regards to racism due to the colour of their skin.
No one should be judged on the colour of their skin, religion or anything! Every individual has their own right to practise their religion however they want! Even though we might think racism is over, it clearly isn’t as some individuals are not being taught that a person should not be judged for the colour of their skin but by who they really are!
It’s important that we all come together to fight racism! #racism
