Well, I’m going to the USA very soon. It will be my second time since I left the country in 2004 after living in the South East for 5 years. (I visited TX in 2006 for Fotoseptiembre.) This year, I’m so happy to participate in Fotoseptiembre again and also to participate in TWU’s 3 artists show. Looking forward to meeting everyone, the organizers, the artists, students and the locals!! I’m also looking forward to having some good “Tex-Mex”, vegetarian quesadilla and burrito! Also, I can’t miss Coen Brothers’ new comedy (!) film; “Burn After Reading” that has John malkovich and Brad Pitt! What an amazing casting, isn’t it? So exciting!!

I hope you all are well, and have a nice,calm season in your city soon!!
See YOU soooooon!!

Best wishes,
Reiko
