JUST ANOTHER DAY TRIP ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Ace Photographer Kovar made the scene at 7th and Montana this morning ... and if anyone ever needed a coffee break, it was him. When I asked him what he's been up to lately, he smiled, took a deep breath and said: "I've just been to Aspen, Taos, Sante Fe, Albuquerque, back to L.A. briefly, then on to Big Sur, Monterey, San Francisco, Bozeman, and Wyoming including visits to Rapid City and the Indian Reservation at Wounded Knee." I felt like I had a Wounded Knee just listening to him, but, then again, this is the same Kovar who conquered Kilimanjaro. This time, he was taking photos for Neighbor Charlie's Explore program. Highlights of the trip included hosting a survivor of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, a man named Honore who addressed a group of USC students on his first day in the U.S.; a screening of Charlie's new documentary, Raindrops Over Rwanda, at the Hatch Film Festival; and a meeting with famed Native American Activist Russell Means. When I asked Kovar how he accomplished all this, he said, "It was just another Day Trip!"
