Postcard from Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan

Mohamed Hamaki - "Ahla Haga Feeki"

Photograph was taken earlier this month in Central Amman. The song was the soundtrack to tearing down desert highways, windows open, music pounding, an evil eye swinging from the rear view mirror. In the middle of nowhere there were sofas, hollow buildings and pylons. In the night, fairy lights illuminated coffee shacks and balconies.

Poble Sec

R A D I O
C O R N U C O P I A

My best pal Josie has embarked on a new project, Radio Cornucopia - a weekly mixtape broadcast out of Barcelona. This week's gives me flashbacks to long, light nights spent hanging out in Poble Sec, vermouth behind my eyes and sunburn stinging my neck. It's early days (it started today), but it's already my favourite thing and will be posted here each time it appears. Incidentally, the photograph is taken by my other best pal / Barcelona beauty, Poppy BC.
