In 1908, Pierre-Auguste Renoir chose to take up residence in the hills behind the seaside town of Cagnes-sur-Mer on the French Riviera. Taken by the climate, the light, and landscapes of this area, Renoir painted olive and fruit trees, flowers, as well as his muses, and began sculpting for the first time. His residence is now a museum and a source of inspiration to young artists, who I saw drawing…Continue

Holi is a religious festival mostly practised in India and Nepal which celebrates the beginning of spring. Originally, it was a festival that commemorated good harvests and fertile land. Hindus believe it is a time for enjoying spring’s abundant colors and saying farewell to winter. It also has a religious purpose, commemorating events present in Hinduism. But in reality much of this holiness seemed, to the untrained eye, as an excuse for children (and a good many adults) to roam the streets…Continue

First, a word of confession. I’m a walker, not a runner.
I could dress this all up with some talk about why mine is a less obsessive-compulsive approach to fitness, one that allows me to slow down and enjoy the world around me, but the truth is that running just doesn’t fit my personality. On the road of life, I’ve always been in the slow lane.

Probably the most touristy site in Ecuador and definitely one of the biggest rip offs. The Mitad del Mundo or Center of the Earth is actually not on the equator. The monument and the painted yellow line that run through it are actually 7 degrees or 240 meters to the south of the the actual equator.
The monument itself is 30 meters tall and is made of stone with a 5 ton globe…Continue

The first time I saw the movie, “The Sound of Music,” from the Betamax tape that my father brought home, I fell in love with it.

I remember recording the songs of the movie from the TV’s speaker using the cassette recorder that we had so I can play the…Continue
