Reading about the Women’s National Cycling Team of Afghanistan brought to mind the doggedly ubiquitous bikes in the “most dangerous country for drivers”.

Two summers ago, on my last trip through the Dominican Republic, I placed my camera on a car’s window sill and snapped away. Here are filtered photos of bikes.

Every day, the Women’s National Cycling Team of Afghanistan faces ridicule and threats. And still they ride—with their eyes on the 2020 Olympics.

Winnie the Pooh is not a bear. Winnie is actually a young man who dresses up as a bear in order to humor his friend Christopher Robin. The most conclusive evidence for this is the fact that Winnie is capable of speaking fluently in the English language, which has, thus far, eluded the grasp of the entirety of the bear population. Winnie’s contemporaries Eeyore, Piglet, and Tigger are all part of the same role play that was created for Mr. Robin’s sake. Why exactly these four men choose to wear these costumes for Christopher is unclear, but it has been speculated that they may owe him money from gambling debts.
