Week 2 of Mosaic Landscape Class with the @smithsonianassociates Studio Art program. Starting to cut our tessera, prime our boards, sketch out design and so on. It was a challenging and exciting class! #smithsonian #smithsonianartclass #studioarts #mosaicart #mosaiclandscapes

Volunteering with @smithsonianassociates once again! Tuesday night is mosaic landscapes with our amazing instructor Bonnie Fitzgerald! It was a great first class getting instruction on the basics of layering and building the base for our landscapes. I can’t wait to see how everyone will interpret landscapes with mosaics during these 8 weeks! #smithsonianmuseum #smithsonianclasses #dcartclass #artindc #acreativedc #mosaics #mosaicart #studioarts

The Taiwanese specialty of "stinky tofu" is made with a brine combining ingredients like fermented milk, dried shrimp and Chinese herbs. The authentic process can take months, and combined with the smell, Taiwanese people never make stinky tofu in their homes. But it's a tradional dish commonly found in Taiwanese night markets. I tried it for the first time last week, with a side of kimchi, when the Taiwan tourism board recreated a night market at the Smithsonian Associates. To read more about the sites, smells and history of Taiwanese night markets, check out the link in my bio. You can also win a Lonely Planet guide book for Taiwan! Would you try stinky tofu?! .

I first visited Asia in 2004 and was immediately hooked to return. If you enjoy flavorful food, there's no region in the world that surpasses it. So when I learned that there was going to be a recreation of a Taiwanese night market at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC tonight, I was sold on being there. I haven't visited Taiwan properly yet, but I've changed planes in Taipei from Vietnam via China Airways and want to experience their real deal night markets firsthand! .

What's the best part of speaking @smithsonian (other than speaking at the Smithsonian)? Finding your best friend from summer camp @planetarowhon, whom you've not seen since you were 15. And signing The World Broke in Two for him. Thanks, Jon Dishell! On to @powellsbooks Friday at 730 pm. Old -- and new -- friends welcome.
