Mafalda

Mafalda is a comic strip written and drawn by  Argentina cartoonist Joaquín Salvador Lavado,  known by his pen name Quino. The strip features a 6-year-old girl named Mafalda, who is deeply concerned about humanity and world peace  and rebels against the current state of the world. The strip ran from 1964 to 1973 and was very popular in South America, Europe, Asia and even in Quebec, Canada. It was so popular it lead to two animated cartoon series and a movie.

I don’t remember this, maybe some of you do, but because I was seeing this cute little character on the streets of Buenos Aries, I had to research it!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
