#TBT. Recuerdos de Monterrey, 2005. My parents have contributed so much to my enormous wanderlust. That summer they literally put me on a plane to Monterrey to visit my Godfather who was living in that northern Mexican city at the time. I thank mis jefes for giving me the gift of wanderlust. #NL #Mty #Me #Travels
When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’
It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?
