A Week of Very Santiago Moments

Most people in Santiago are walking around with groceries in their arms or holding overfilled tiny plastic bags normally used for bread or veggies. As of February 3, all plastic bags are banned in retail business in Chile, but it takes a while to adapt and remember to bring a reusable bag. In theory, supermarkets were supposed to sell paper bags, but most run out of them after a few days. A new market is emerging, though—kids selling reusable bags in front of supermarkets. Stuck with groceries ...

Another little night walk

I made again a nice little night walk, maybe less spectacular to the eyes than my recent walk along the Seine River (see here). I started at Place de la Bastille (see previous posts). The Bastille Opera has since the end of last year an illumination, named “Saturnales”. Why this name? Why not - “Saturnalia” was some kind of Roman winter, December, celebration, a short period of great festivities, when also the slaves had some kind of limited freedom…     I continued a...

History of the torta de tamal

The base of Mexican street food is the diet of the Ts: tortillas, tacos, tortas, tlayudas, tostadas, and tamales. The T diet is something I’ve heard more than once and something you’ll also hear and experience if you stay in Mexico City, Oaxaca, and other parts of Mexico for long enough. And among those many Ts you’ll find the torta de tamal, sometimes called guajolota, which is a magical combination of bolillo (a short French bread also called pan frances in some parts of Mexico) and tamales...

You don’t need a licence to drive the Citroën Ami One

Citroën seems to have it the nail on the head by calling its Ami One a ‘disruptive all-electric object’, and not a car. Barely 2.5 meters long, the Ami One stems from an idea that traveling is an activity, and a car should only be as permanent as the need of that activity. The video above makes a pretty bold claim by saying that YOU choose how long you want (to rent) your car. Five minutes, five hours, five days…months , or even five years. This sounds like a gimmick, but think about the fact ...

Best times to book holiday flights

Figuring out when to book summer travel is a lot like grilling steaks at a summer barbecue: Everyone’s apparently an expert, and they’re not afraid to tell you their opinion. But much like you’ll only take grilling advice from Bobby Flay, so should you only listen to proven experts when trying to determine the best times to buy airline tickets and hotel rooms. Unlike your know-it-all neighbor standing behind you at the grill, we’re not going to claim to be those experts. Instead, we talked to...

Marriott Requires $20,000 Spend for Top Tier Status, This Man Tipped $22,000 and Got Arrested

Marriott's new program doesn't just require 100 nights a year to earn top tier elite status, it also requires $20,000 in spending. That's odd for a loyalty program with so many hotels in China and elsewhere that rates are super cheap. It's possible to stay nearly 300 nights with Marriott in a year and still not be a top tier elite. One man probably wasn't testing to see whether tips would count towards qualifying spend, though Marriott is at least in the process of rolling out points-earning f...

What Explains China’s Rise?

In any discussion on economic development, China invariably shows up. How did China manage an economic transformation that it now rivals even the greatest developed economy? Isn’t it amazing that China did that without being a democracy? Or maybe precisely because it is an autocracy that it could do what India, the largest democracy in … Continue reading What Explains China’s Rise?

Supplements to take while traveling

Traveling is not the time to skip a quality supplement routine. Navigating crowded airports, eating unfamiliar food, and bouncing between time zones affect your ability to maintain homeostasis, the body’s innate desire to seek balance and health. I’ve had a private nutrition practice for 14 years, hold a masters degree in clinical nutrition and functional medicine, and have been awarded the credential of a Certified Nutrition Specialist practitioner. To keep myself healthy while abroad, I ne...
