Keep a low profile   

I read with great interest Sherry Ricchiardi's story "Assignment AfPak." As a traveler and blogger (jos-travel-blog/, I have been in Pakistan, Iraq and Afghanistan recently and certainly can echo the Washington Post reporter's advice to keep as low a profile as possible.

Among the places I visited in Afghanistan this past August was the Minaret of Djam, which meant a journey through Central Afghanistan via minibus with stays at local "chaikhanas" (teahouses) in areas where Westerners were a curiosity. At times, there was a definite feeling of wariness from the locals, although the kids cheerfully handed me election material. And the election was a big thing in the villages, with posters of various candidates, including some women, plastered on walls throughout.

I could only wish some of those I observed riding around Kabul in their Land Cruisers (oh, would that I could have the Toyota franchise for Afghanistan and/or the Middle East!) could/would get out and travel more freely and get a feel for the countryside. But getting The Big Story can jeopardize not only oneself but others who come to the rescue.

Interestingly, I didn't see a lot of media people on the streets of Old Town Kabul on Election Day, other than a couple of freelancers racing down the street where they'd heard of possible gunfire, one of them busily trying to cleanse his finger from the ink proving that he had voted.

This is really a plea for reporters--and many moons ago I trained as a journalist--to carefully look behind the smoke and mirrors, for we as readers rely on their work. I know the adrenaline rush one can get when it looks like something extraordinary is about to happen, but it is necessary to get beyond that, and do the job of giving the public as accurate information as you can--without making yourself the story.

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
