Jim Richardson's "Around the World" show

Last night, on my way back to Wichita for fall break, I stopped in Lindsborg to go to National Geographic photojournalist, Jim Richardson's, new show "Around the World and Back" at his Small World Gallery in the small, "Little Sweden," town. The show consisted of photos he took on, if I remember correctly, a 22-day, 10 country excursion around the world. He was accompanied by anyone who wanted to tag along. All you had to do was pay the $60,000-$65,000 to go. They got a private jet, and stayed in one place no longer than two days. As he described to the crowd last night, "It was not a vacation." It was well worth the few extra miles to drive and see (I have only been there once before).

Small World Gallery was definitely the life of Lindsborg last night.
