February is the month of love, of Valentine’s Day. It commemorates the Waitangi Treaty, first Sámi congress, the RAMSAR convention and the Mexican constitution. Birthdays include Charles Darwin and Bob Marley, whose orbits around the sun were musical earthstrongs. Black History Month in the USA. The day before Valentine’s Day is World Radio Day and a week after Valentine’s Day is International Mother Language Day.

Planeta.com hosts our annual Responsible Travel Week around Valentine’s Day (Monday-Sunday). When I lived in Oaxaca, we held most of our grassroots tourism fairs in late January/early February. There were plenty of winter travelers and artisan and tourism friends were keen on showing what they loved about their home state. I’m hoping friends join this year’s week and share a status report, photos and video
