Berthe Weill... again

Berthe Weill , honoured again, and once more thanks to my friend Marianne Le Morvan, and of course also thanks to the initiative to create a new little garden, neighbour to the Picasso Museum. People were asked to choose which name to give to this garden… and the choice was Berthe Weill. I don’t think anybody would have thought of her if it wasn’t for Marianne Le Morvan, who has made it a task to honour this lady, the gallerist who was the first to sell a Picasso in Paris, the first to sell a...

Best things to in Pristina, Kosovo

The Republic of Kosovo is Europe’s youngest country. It broke from Serbia on February 17, 2008, and in 2010 the International Court of Justice declared it a sovereign nation. Despite its newfound independence, Kosovo’s unusual history actually stretches as far back as the Roman Empire. A trip there offers both a glimpse into a country working to build a future of its own making and a window into understanding how today’s Balkan states came to be. Here, everything from the cafe culture to the ...

Grlswirl skaters teaching in Mexico

The migrant caravan — a mass of thousands of Central Americans who have walked for months to seek asylum in the US — arrived at the Tijuana border in November 2018. Common misconceptions due to our current political climate associate danger, violence, and a threatening drug cartel with the border town and migrants. But traveling to Mexico, visiting the shelters, and connecting with individual migrants — many of them young, unaccompanied minors — sheds light on a much different experience. Grl...

Best things to do in Tampa, Florida

Going to Florida for vacation has been an American tradition since the invention of air conditioning. But for business? Outside of Latin American finance and quote-unquote “exotic” imports, folks usually didn’t come down this way to do anything that resembled “serious.” But that’s changed in the past couple of decades, and as business in Florida booms so does the number of people who come here for work. Since the sunshine state was a vacation destination to begin with, it’s also the perfect p...

Masani’s 1944 essay “Reconsidering Socialism” was still a deeply socialist document

This chapter from this book by SV Raju on Masani is illuminating. I’ve provided some annotations in blue. ===CHAPTER=== There were two reasons for Masani moving away from socialism—his disenchantment with the ‘Left’ in general and Marxism in particular. The second was the influence of Gandhiji, which we discussed, in the previous chapter. A London […]

It’s something that has been done throughout history — something that’s immediately clear as soon as you take a deeper look at where your favorite condiments come from.

Summer Lovin’ Had Me a Blast; Summer Lovin’ Happened So Fast

This post originally appeared on Nomadic Chick. It all began, fittingly, on the first day of summer with a game called ‘tangled’, where everyone puts their hands in the center of a circle, grabs two random people’s hands and then proceeds to untangle themselves to make a circle as this is “team-building” and “creates friendships”. It was our first day as counselors at an American summer camp in up-state New York and we were wondering just what we had gotten ourselves into. In the fray of hand g...
