Che Spotting #50

San Salvador, El Salvador.
Lone Che.

This photo was submitted by traveler Daphne H.

She snapped it while visiting the city of San Salvador in El Salvador.

We can see why. What is Che doing on this sparse wall all by himself?

It certainly is a strange sight, although one that we very much appreciate.

Daphne has been lucky enough to visit El Salvador numerous times. She and another woman run a teacher-to-teacher exchange program there.

Each year since 2000, a group of teachers (many of them Alaskan) travels to El Salvador and participate in an English-language exchange with Salvadorian English teachers. The American teachers help the Salvadorian teachers practice their pronunciation, answer cultural questions and share ideas for new classroom activities.

  1. I think it’s obvious…It’s like one of those paint samples you get from the hardware store, go home, paint a swatch on the wall and see how it looks. These folks are just seeing how Tiny Che looks and will live with it a little, and then go back and put a bigger one there eventually. tell Daphne to go back and check. :)

Che Spotting #49

Venice, Italy
Che on a Boat

This picture was submitted by traveler Misciel L.

She spotted this Che while touring Venice, Italy.

She happened to be in Venice at the same time that the Italian neofascist party chose to hold a meeting there and at the same time that a protest was being held to contest the party’s meeting.

And of course, sensing political tension, Che showed up.

Che Spotting #48

Madrid, Spain
Flea Market Che

This picture was submitted by Amber Procaccini, photographer with a serious case of wanderlust.

While traveling in Spain, she visited a flea market in Madrid.

That’s where she came across this tin cigarette case stamped with a picture of Che.

She liked the contrast of Che’s scruffy image and the word “Revolucion” amidst an assortment of vintage clip-on earrings, broaches and other women’s accessories.

Che Spotting #47

Minneapolis, Minnesota.
How Much is that Che in the Window?

Anyone who visits downtown Minneapolis in the winter, quickly learns how to navigate the skyway system.

Because of the cold winter temps, people who work downtown aren’t keen on heading outside to go grab coffee, get lunch, run to the bank or do other errands.

Instead, a series of indoor sidewalks link most of the downtown buildings. These indoor sidewalks are not underground. They are on the second story. They are bridges that cross over the streets.

Skyway traffic is heavy, especially during the lunch rush. One day, while rushing about our business in the skyway system of downtown Minneapolis, we happened to glance into the windows of a nearby building and we spotted Che!

As you can imagine, we are extremely curious about this Che. Whose office is this?

We’ll probably never know, but every time we cross this skyway, we look up and look for Che. He’s always there.

Che Spotting #46

Dallas, Texas, USA
Create-A-Che.

Ducking into a cool shop to escape the oppressive heat of a Texas 4th of July, we spotted a wall of fun knick-knacks and toys, among them these Create-a-Commie kits.

Che is just one of the many suggested Communist leaders that one can create using the magic wand. Others include Lenin, Marx, Trotsky, Gorby and, of course, Castro.

The toy was made by Accoutrements. After a check of the web site, it appears the Create-A-Commie kits are no longer in production.

Luckily, we bought one when we saw them.

It’s a frustrating toy, however. We’ve never quite been able to create a perfect magnetic Che.

Che Spotting #45

Delhi, India
Che Doesn’t Disappoint

When Jen P. packed her bags and headed to northern India, she assumed she’d spot Che at some point on her trip. After all, she’d traveled to many, many countries, and she’d seen Che’s mug show up in all sorts of strange places.

However, after 10 days in India, she was about to leave empty handed. In India, buildings, walls, and all modes of transportation were plastered with images of animals, gods and gurus. But the iconic Che image wasn’t present amidst the chaos. He was nowhere to be seen.

Yet Jen P. didn’t give up. She kept her eyes peeled for Che even on her departing trip to the airport. That was her last chance, she thought, to spot Che while she was in India. But when she arrived, she still hadn’t seen him. She sighed, resigning herself to the fact that his seemingly ever-present face just wasn’t there.

But then—but then there he was! This Che was spotted just outside the duty free shop inside Indira Gandhi International Airport.

Jen P. could rest easy. Che’s iconic face had not let her down.

Havana, Cuba
Che Gets Colorful

This picture was submitted by Catherine Watson, an award-winning travel writer.

Watson, who was the chief travel writer and editor of the Minneapolis Star Tribune for nearly three decades, is also the author of two books. Currently, she is the travel editor for MinnPost.com.

In the course of her global travels, she often spots El Che. She happened across this colorful mural in an unrestored part of Old Havana while she was traveling in Cuba.

Watson submitted this image to CheSpotting.com several months ago. We decided to post it now because we recently ran across a story on NPR about two photographers, one Cuban and one American, who have been working together to create a cross-cultural photography exhibit of Cuba. When we went to the NPR web site to listen to the story and see its accompanying pictures, we were surprised to see that the opening shot was of this same Che mural.

Che Spotting #12

Penelokan, Bali, Indonesia
A place to look at Che.

This is one of two Che spottings from a small mountain village in Bali.  The village, called Penelokan, means “place to look.”  It is famous for its views of volcanic Gunung Batur and the crater lake Danau Batur.

But on the day Today there was more to see like this Che-adorned truck parked in front of a string of Warungs (family owned restaurants and shops) near the scenic overlook.  A mini-bus across the way with two security guards inside also displayed a cigar-smoking Che.

Dallas, Texas, USA
Create-A-Che.

Ducking into a cool shop to escape the oppressive heat of a Texas 4th of July, we spotted a wall of fun knick-knacks and toys, among them these Create-a-Commie kits.

Che is just one of the many suggested Communist leaders that one can create using the magic wand. Others include Lenin, Marx, Trotsky, Gorby and, of course, Castro.

The toy was made by Accoutrements. After a check of the web site, it appears the Create-A-Commie kits are no longer in production.

Luckily, we bought one when we saw them.

It’s a frustrating toy, however. We’ve never quite been able to create a perfect magnetic Che.

Delhi, India
Che Doesn’t Disappoint

When Jen P. packed her bags and headed to northern India, she assumed she’d spot Che at some point on her trip. After all, she’d traveled to many, many countries, and she’d seen Che’s mug show up in all sorts of strange places.

However, after 10 days in India, she was about to leave empty handed. In India, buildings, walls, and all modes of transportation were plastered with images of animals, gods and gurus. But the iconic Che image wasn’t present amidst the chaos. He was nowhere to be seen.

Yet Jen P. didn’t give up. She kept her eyes peeled for Che even on her departing trip to the airport. That was her last chance, she thought, to spot Che while she was in India. But when she arrived, she still hadn’t seen him. She sighed, resigning herself to the fact that his seemingly ever-present face just wasn’t there.

But then—but then there he was! This Che was spotted just outside the duty free shop inside Indira Gandhi International Airport.

Jen P. could rest easy. Che’s iconic face had not let her down.

Che doesn’t disappoint.

 After about 10 days in northern India, this traveler was about to leave empty handed.  Buildings, walls, and all modes of transportation were plastered with images of animals, gods and gurus.  But there was one icon famous the world over not present amidst the chaos—Che was nowhere to be seen.

With eyes peeled even to the airport and I had just resigned to the fact that Che was not among of the thousands of deities worshiped in India when this one was spied just outside the duty free shop at Indira Gandhi International Airport in Dehli.  This iconic face has not let me down yet.

Che Spotting #43

Kathmandu, Nepal.
Che Gets His Freak On.

We spotted this Che on “Freak Street” in Kathmandu, a small lane in the heart of the city known as a former hippie hangout.

Interestingly, on a day when most shops were closed due to a Maoist-ordered strike in the city, this store was not only open, but also proudly displaying a flag of Che alongside other recognizable global icons, like Bob Marley.

While traveling through Nepal, we learned that The Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) differentiates itself from the Communist Party of Nepal (Marxist-Leninist) groups. Often thought of as a more militant form of Communism, Maoists play a large role in Nepalese government today and regularly uses strikes to make its political opinions known.

Che as a Storm Trooper

As we were running about town trying to finish up the last of our holiday shopping, we noticed this sticker on the back of a car parked next to ours.

Was that Che? Or a Star Wars Storm Trooper? Or both? Or neither?

Luckily we had our camera stashed in our purse.

We snapped a quick pic, noticing the words “UrbanMedium” printed at the  bottom of the image, and were soon on our way.

A few days later, we downloaded the picture to our computer and decided to Google “UrbanMedium” to see what we could find.

Up popped the web site of an Atlanta artist named Derek Fridman.

His aim, he says on his web site, is to transform iconic imagery that we’re used to seeing in our everyday surroundings.

That sticker we spotted on the back of a car in a busy Minneapolis parking lot was indeed a combination of two images: Che and a Star Wars Storm Trooper. Fridman named his creation “CheTrooper.”

Fridman sells “CheTrooper” stickers through his web site where he also has a bunch of pictures of these stickers plastered in various urban locations.

He also sells t-shirts sporting his “CheTrooper” image.

And, if you really like the idea of a “CheTrooper,” you can buy a three-dimensional bust!

His aim, he says on his web site, is to transform iconic imagery that we’re used to seeing in our everyday surroundings.

That sticker we spotted on the back of a car in a busy Minneapolis parking lot was indeed a combination of two images: Che and a Star Wars Storm Trooper. Fridman named his creation “CheTrooper.”

Fridman sells “CheTrooper” stickers through his web site, and also boasts a bunch of pictures of these stickers plas

He also sells t-shirts sporting his “CheTrooper” image.

And, if you really like the idea of a “CheTrooper,” you can buy a bust!

Che Spotting #43

Kathmandu, Nepal.
Che Gets His Freak On.

We spotted this Che on “Freak Street” in Kathmandu, a small lane in the heart of the city known as a former hippie hangout.

Interestingly, on a day when most shops were closed due to a Maoist-ordered strike in the city, this store was not only open, but also proudly displaying a flag of Che alongside other recognizable global icons, like Bob Marley.

While traveling through Nepal, we learned that The Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) differentiates itself from the Communist Party of Nepal (Marxist-Leninist) groups. Often thought of as a more militant form of Communism, Maoists play a large role in Nepalese government today and regularly uses strikes to make its political opinions known.

Che Spotting #42

Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Che Behind Bars.

This picture was submitted by Steve W.

He spotted this Che while touring the Red Light District in Amsterdam.

It was propped up behind the bar in one of the neighborhood’s fine establishments. The bartender graciously let Steve behind the bar to snap this photo.

However, Steve admits, the package of Che brand cigarettes here wasn’t what initially drew his attention behind the bar.

Gee, we just can’t guess what it was that caught his eye . . .

Che Spotted in House Beautiful Magazine

We don’t usually read House Beautiful Magazine, but while visiting with relatives over the Thanksgiving holiday, we ended up sitting on a sister-in-law’s couch with her copy of the magazine next to us.

We picked it up and, almost mindlessly, began flipping the pages while conversations whirled around us.

Luckily, we weren’t completely mindless while turning those pages for if we had been we might have missed this Che Spotting.

Here, Che’s mug shows up in a framed poster that just missed getting edited out of a photo spread of an eclectically-decorated home.

Thank goodness the magazine’s graphic design staff had the good sense to leave this Che in. And thank goodness the photographer had the good sense to back up enough to get Che in the shot.

Che Spotting #41

Seattle, USA
Che Doubles the Fun

This double Che Spotting comes to us from Seattle, USA.

While strolling the ambling halls of the city’s famous Pike Place Market, we spied a classic red-and-black Che t-shirt hanging outside one of the market’s many souvenir shops.

When we walked closer to take a picture, we noticed that a man sitting nearby was also wearing a Che tee.

He agreed to pose and we were fortunate to nab this double shot!

Che Gets His Freak On

Che spotted in the former hippie hangout known as Freak Street in Kathmandu Nepal.  Interestingly, on a day when most shops were closed due to a Maoist-ordered strike in the city this one flying a Che flag, alongside other notable icons, was open for business.

Note: The Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) differentiates itself from the Communist Party of Nepal (Marxist-Leninist) groups.  Often thought of as a more militant form of Communism, it plays a large role in Nepalese government today and regularly uses strikes to make its political opinions known.

Che Scares the Birds

che-scarecrow-1

While touring the Minnesota State Fair, we stumbled upon a collection of handmade scarecrows.

The scarecrows had all been made by crafty Minnesotans and submitted to some sort of best-scarecrow contest.

Among them, we spotted a scarecrow that (while we have no confirmation) looked a lot like Che.

It had combat fatigue pants, a scruffy beard and a beret. The only thing missing was the star on the hat!

We appreciated the hand-knitting that had gone into the creation of this scarecrow.

In fact, the knitted face of this scarecrow-Che reminded us of our very own knitted Che doll.

And, we are happy to report, this scarecrow-Che was a ribbon winner!

Che Spotting # 40

che-spotting-40-washington-dc

Washington D.C., USA.
Spy on Che.

This picture was submitted by Jennifer N.

On a trip to Washington D.C., she toured the International Spy Museum.

She spotted this Che collection in the museum gift shop.

What do the initials “WWCD?” stand for on the bottom of the t-shirt, we wondered.

What Would Che Do?

Indeed, what would Che do if he knew his face now graced so many t-shirts?

How Much is that Che in the Window?

This picture was submitted by Paul S.

He spotted this Che wall hanging in the front window of a store on Saint Kieran’s Street in Kilkenny City, Ireland.

Paul appreciated the placement of this Che. “It was surrounded by children’s toys and religious items,” he said.

Almost a Che Spotting

alaska-near-che-3We had our cameras out and ready during our entire trip to Alaska this summer.

And while we did indeed have a moose sighting, we didn’t spot our ol’ friend Che.

The closest we came was this row of Alaskan Airlines airplanes all lined up at the airport.

These guys are definitely not Che, but perhaps they are his Inuit cousins?

alaska-near-che-3We had our cameras out and ready during our entire trip to Alaska this summer. And while we did indeed have a moose sighting, we didn’t spot our ol’ friend Che.

The closest we came was this row of Alaskan Airlines airplanes all lined up at the airport. These guys are definitely not Che, but perhaps they are his Inuit cousins?

Che Spotted on TV Show Weeds

weeds-1-che-spottingA girl’s gotta trust her hair stylist.

Ours recommended we start watching the TV show “Weeds.”

The series, which airs on the cable channel Showtime, is about a suburban mother of two whose husband suddenly drops dead of a heart attack.

Left to figure out the family’s finances on her own, and realizing her options are limited, she begins selling marijuana.

A bit far-fetched, perhaps, but it turns out our hair stylist didn’t steer us wrong. We’ve been enjoying the series so far.

And we liked it even more when Che showed up in the form of a badge sewed on to one of the character’s backpacks.

This spotting occurred in Weeds Season 2, Episode 10.

Che Spotting #38

che-spotting-38-cape-town-south-africaCape Town, South Africa.
¿Qué Pasa, Che?

What’s up with this place?

While wandering around Cape Town, we stumbled across this business on a quiet street.

We puzzled over what was inside. There were no windows and the door was locked. The overhead sign that read  “¿Qué Pasa?” (“What’s up?” in Spanish) didn’t exactly offer a lot of hints.

What was the deal with Che’s recognizable face printed on the Cuban flag? And why the Puerto Rican flag over the door?

Was this a store? A restaurant? A Caribbean Art Gallery? And why was it closed in the middle of the day?

We were so curious we looked it up online. Turns out, the “¿Qué Pasa? Latin Lounge” is a dance school and salsa night club. 

Next time you’re in Cape Town, drop in to swing your hips to a saucy Cuban beat.  But keep in mind they don’t open til 5 p.m.

Che Spotted in Minnesota Monthly

che-spotted-in-mn-monthlyYou know how it is. Sometimes your magazine subscriptions pile up. You had really good intentions when you paid your subscription bill. You swore you’d read each issue as it arrived in your mail box. And then…well, things come up and you never get around to all those magazines.

That’s exactly what happened to us. So imagine our surprise when we spotted Che in the pages of a magazine dated one year ago. This Che Spotting had been sitting under our noses all this time and we’d missed it because we hadn’t made the time to crack open our very own magazine!

And this Che wasn’t in a travel magazine, but in Minnesota Monthly, a regional mag touting all the best and the brightest from right here in our own back yards.

The Che in question is part of a framed piece of art hanging in the background of a portrait of Joe Duffy, a man featured in the magazine for his Minneapolis-based advertising and design firm, Duffy & Partners.

Also featured in the framed piece of art alongside Che are Ghandi and what looks to be Nelson Mandela.
