FC: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by: Lainie Taylor
1: Around the world, black hand prints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through the sky.
2: In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.
3: And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.
4: Meet KAROU. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she disappears on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages--not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color.
5: Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.
6: Meet Brimstone. The man who is known as the devil. The man who raised Karou.
7: When one of the strangers fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past.
9: But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?

14: We enjoyed our trip amidst the rain, fog and cold windy days. We did a lot of walking and travelled long distances with our heavy backpacks... and loved it.
16: There was more than one occasion where we had to be resourceful and live on the streets because we missed a train or couldnt find a hostel.

19: Backpacking took us to many beautiful verdant places. Our granola bars kept u alive during long walks.
20: Gepetto's Shop
21: There were many street artists who were very talented. Too bad our backpacks had no space for artwork.
22: being silly
23: ...and sometimes bad.
25: Eating gelato, meeting strangers, living in hostels, walking along coastlines, sleeping on trains, going to festivals, eating authentic foods, learning transportation systems, buying groceries; It was all a great experience, despite the rainy days, getting lost, and taking trains in wrong directions. Immersing in different cultures taught us a lot and opened our eyes to a little bit more of the world around us.
