Day of the Dead
The follow-up: Smithsonian’s daily email (yes, they of the concatenated and spurious-relationships subject line) highlighted photos of participants in Day of the Dead celebrations, taken by Mexican photographer Miguel Gandert.
The original: I’ve posted photos of birds near Kata Tjuta, the conglomerate formation close to Uluru, the famous sandstone monolith. I was surprised that I hadn’t actually posted photos of Uluru itself, and rectify that omission here.
The follow-up: As of Oct 2019, climbing on Uluru will be prohibited. Right now, visitors are asked not to climb it, to respect aboriginal beliefs.
