Admiring the range of street art as I wandered throughout the Mile End.

And when I stopped in for another siphon coffee at Le Falco, I picked up french street artist JR’s book documenting his massive project to showcase the power and dignity of women in some of the world’s harshest communities and conflict zones – including Sudan and Sierra Leone, India, Cambodia and the favelas of Brazil. He used moving trains, rooftops, building facades, staircases, and such to display this impressive collection of work..
