When driving during certain stretches of this book tour, I really wanted the book, Dancing with Dynamite, to take the wheel. This occurred to me when I took this shot in Vermont, looking over the dashboard onto Lake Champlain.
The book talk in Washington, DC – where all the magic happens – was great: at the event, I was able to meet up with a lot of journalists, bloggers and solidarity activists I’ve been in touch with over the years. The Dream City Collective organized this exciting gathering at a church in the city, and the discussion and turnout was great. The next day I met up with Jesse Freeston from the Real News Network and took this picture (right) just before he interviewed me for these videos, which he produced on Latin America with great footage from social struggles around the region. (The ducks in the background during these interviews got particularly agitated when I mentioned the Paraguayan dictator Alfredo Stroessner.)
