The first thing mom and I did today, was start to create a Camera Obscura. This is a box with only one small pin hole for light. If you point the pin hole into the sun light, an image of outside will appear, upside down, on the opposite side of the box. In order to view this amazing experiment, you must put a dark cloth around your head and the box, so no more light will seep in. We came across this idea in a National Geographic magazine. A photographer made a Camera Obscura, but the whole room was the box. He first put dark plastic over the windows on a sunny day. Then, he cut a dime sized hole in the plastic, and watched as the opposite wall exploded with the upside down reflection of the scene outside.
In the middle of making the Camera Obsocra, we were distracted by the guitar. I learned my first song on the guitar ever! From beginning to end, “Yellow Submarine”! I plan to surprise Dad with the song when he comes home!
Today, I want to congratulate our first unknown follower from Istanbul, Esra. We think that Huseyin and Dilek passed on the word. If so, thanks a lot! Peter, to answer your question, we have not gotten sick on the trip, only a few belly cramps from not drinking enough water. Since we’ve been chugging down more water, we’ve all been feeling better. Vicky, to answer your question, we do not even get Tibetan news let alone English news! We only have slow Internet on rare occasions, when the power is on. And, John, to answer your question, as many degrees of separation between me and potential followers as you can get! And to everybody else, I love the comments. Thanks! Please spread the word!
Thank you for reading Rohan Geographic!
