Do you still remember your favourite school's playground? I have some really fond memories of making friends, chasing boys and getting to all kinds of mischief on our school’s playground!

So recently, when I stumbled upon James Mollison’s newest series, I got all nostalgic. James traveled across the globe capturing and documenting the diverse world of playgrounds. Some have grass and swing sets, while others are just plain concrete - but regardless of how rich or poor,  kids never seem to be bored, all they need is their imagination and friends to play with. Brilliant!

P.S: Rise and shine!
P.P.S: The hungry planet and from grandma with love.

I love all of these comparisons of people around the world how are lives are so drastically different yet unbelievable similar somehow. Have you seen Afar magazine's spreads that highlight some topic (ie - school lunches around the world) each month? Love those!
