What would you do if you were chosen to spend an hour on a public pedestal? This is the last month of Trafalgar’s living art exhibition, right on the streets of London. May I offer a suggestion? Lots of things are happening in September: in the northern hemisphere summer is almost over (although there is still time for a swim in Dublin), while here in Brazil winter is already on its way out. Up there you can find Obama’s Chicago and food festivals like the Cheese Festival. Down here you have Lily Allen and study-abroad fairs. Living Language goes from the moon to the Statue of Liberty. But if this all sounds too serious and grey, head for Bollywood, remembering that there’s good – and bad – technology for all tastes. Just don’t forget to go green – Leo offers some useful advice, and then you can still dance till the end of love. So what might you do on a public pedestal? Well, how about taking all this with you, inside your favorite magazine? Happy reading!
