Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author Marty Essen

Peace from the Borneo Girls

Marty’s photo of the day #2121: I was hiking in a Malaysian Borneo rainforest, during the height of the Iraq War, when I came across a high school camping trip. Yesterday I posted the boy’s photo; today I’m posting the girl’s photo. Malaysia is a Muslim country, and I was the only white person for miles. The students figured out that I was American almost immediately and flashed peace signs. Yes, even though George W. Bush was busy attacking a Muslim country, based on a lie, these girls wanted to send a message back to America of peace.
