Business Jet Destination Guide: Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and attracts considerable business aviation traffic. The UAE is probably the easiest and least restrictive region in the Middle East in terms of business aircraft permit requirements. We hear of few issues with landing permit requests or revisions for this area. Still, it’s crucial to ensure that any information/documentation submitted with permit requests is correct and valid, as this will help avoid permit delays. Here is what you ...

Shattering stereotypes in Africa

Africa is a massive continent that is complex, dynamic, and ever-changing, and yet so often tourists to any part of it sum it up with a few very similar photos. Outsiders tend to have a knee-jerk reaction to try and seek out and reproduce what they grew up seeing in National Geographic, but even a publication like that only has seen a slice of what this place has, is, and offers. And just this week, Nat Geo took a look at their colonial biases through the last century, reminding us that we, as...

PHOTO: Wooden Dhow Cargo Boat on Dubai Creek in Dubai, UAE

Click on title to view photo in large format. A dhow cargo boat on Dubai Creek in the Deira neighborhood of Dubai, UAE, is loaded down with merchandise.

My first walk along the wharves took me through the world’s largest Bed, Bath and Beyond. Impossibly high mountains of bedspreads, pillows, sheets, draperies, and towels teetered and thre...

Can Photographs Change The World? Somalia Tragedy Through The Lens Of Jean-Claude Coutausse

Photographs have the capacity to transcend politics, in the times of war, natural disasters and perpetrated crimes.

One of the below photographs by Jean-Claude Coutausse displays Somali men running the opposite way a United Nations convoy is driving towards and the other photograph depicts a Somali boy protesting “against the presence of foreign troops” with two bloody corpses and ...
