The Texas lone star as seen in a concrete wall above the River Walk in San Antonio.
I can’t believe I’m missing this story by 2 weeks.
The most stressful part of my day is when I’ve just finished eating breakfast, but I need to beat the heat to work out, so I try to digest my food as quickly as possible and panic that I’ll be too sweaty and tired to work out before it’s 100 degrees.
That’s the mouth of the Rio Grande. The foreground is the United States. The far shore is Mexico, where fishermen cast nets in the water. It’s so close we could smell the meat they’re grilling over there. From this spot by the Gulf of Mexico, we’ve begun a 1,900-mile journey along the entire US-Mexico border, all the way to the Pacific coast. We’re looking for tales of crossings - people, goods, and even culture that have leaped that surprisingly narrow barrier from one side to the other. Of course we’ll be crossing many times ourselves. Producers Nishant Dahiya and Selena Simmons-Duffin, photographer Kainaz Amaria (who took this image) and I will be sharing impressions of our journey over the next two weeks on On the Road, and we’ll begin broadcasting on Morning Edition and other NPR programs in late March. You’re welcome to cross over with us. (photo @kainazamaria/NPR)
Our awesome team member, Kainaz, is reporting with Morning Edition at the US-Mexico border. Follow along on their journey: nprontheroad.tumblr.com
It’s soooooooooo interesting how people get to the US. I look forward to this.
Just found out this *creature* I have to work with on a group publication hates my guts.
Feeling especially proud of Chi-town on our 177th birthday.
Like or re-blog if you’re made in a Chicago hood!
I just want to be in Chicago.
Can we all agree that Carl Kasell’s grumpy face is the best part of OK Go’s Tiny Desk Concert?
Broadcasting legend Carl Kasell just announced that he’s retiring from Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me this spring and we’re still sure this GIF set is one for the books. We’re all gonna miss you, Carl!
I guess my dream of having Carl’s voice on my home answering machine will never come true :(
WHY IS THE WORLD SHITTING ON ME TODAY!?!?!!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!
Let’s make this the most reblogged photo ever.
