During my Blue Planet Ride 2010 in Europe, my friend David from the Czech Republic, with whom I biked part of the way, came up with a fun project to create awareness about the lack of access to safe drinking water for so many people all around the world. He carried with him a spiral sketchbook for the purpose of having a daily water posting written by a random person we would come in contact with. A store clerk, a gas station attendant, a warmshower hosts or a newly made friend. He approached them with a smile, introduced himself and explained the purpose of our trip. Sometimes a bit hesitant other times spontaneously they would take on the task at hand and put their prosaic and crafty ideas on paper. Depicted above two such special memories and wonderful Blue Planet moments.

Some were flavored with humor others more serious or with a focus on the environment but the message was clear and everyone knew the most important thing: WATER IS LIFE!
