Theresa said the other day that she has a hard time understanding why someone would like to look at other people's snapshots on Flickr, especially if the photos are taken by strangers. I said I like checking in on the stream of photos being uploaded because it gives me a glimpse of parts of the world I'll never see. This morning, for example, I spotted a stream of photos about a picnic in Afghanistan. That's one place I'd be unlikely to ever experience, except in news reports of tragedies. Photos like these remind me, again, that the world isn't full of terrorists. Even in the most troubled parts of the world, life goes on.
