Questions / Answers about my Life in France

    Where do you store everything you buy at the brocantes  to be sold later? In my house, in our place in Paris, in my studio, under my bed, in my closets, in the garage, between the sheets, under pillows, stacked on the bookshelves, on the chairs who needs to sit? Stacked in the corner, on the top on my head.       Do you have someone who packs it up and ships it out? Do you do your own bookkeeping? All of which are time-consuming  chores.   30 percent of what I do regarding ...

Tribal Gathering festival in Panama

The knowledge and traditions of indigenous cultures around the world is invaluable yet always at risk of disappearing in the face of both systemic oppression and younger generations losing interest in maintaining these traditions.

A noble cause, for sure, but ...

Best Chinatowns in the North America

There’s a certain generic image that’s associated with the word Chinatown. The neighborhoods can be found around the world and have, in many ways, made the switch from immigrant communities to full-blown tourist attractions. Chinatowns in places like San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and LA are prime examples. But Chinatowns aren’t limited to what you see in the movies. True Chinatowns also exist, oftentimes in unexpected places like tiny farm towns and French-speaking cities north of the bor...

Landmarks as amateur sketches

When you hear Boise what comes to mind? Nothing? Potatoes? Lovely a place as the capital of Idaho is, it doesn’t exactly conjure up images of… anything. A big part of that is because it doesn’t have an icon, a landmark or associated image that immediately pops into the collective conscious when people hear the name. Some cities have one highly distinct image associated with them, like gondoliers in Venice. Others can be a bit more complex, like New York. To see what images people associated w...

Tourist dies at the Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is one of the most popular and widely recognizable tourist attractions in the world, but unfortunately, it can also be quite dangerous. Steep inclines, sharp drops, and precarious trails mean you need to be on high alert, no matter how badly you want to get that Instagram photo. Just yesterday, a Macau man, who was part of a tour group from Hong Kong, fell to his death at Eagle Point near the Skywalk. The Skywalk offers views as far as 4,000 feet into the canyon. The man fell...

Challenges of Black British travel

From discrimination and safety issues to not always relating to other travelers simply due to the color of our skin, black travelers collectively face a set of unique challenges around the world.

Wacky museums to visit in Las Vegas

The endless stream of taxis shuttling visitors from McCarran International Airport to the Las Vegas strip is as monotonous as the turnover on the $1 poker machines and Blackjack tables those visitors plan to park themselves in front of. Vegas is actually full of incredible things to do and see, and most don’t even involve throwing your money away. To really throw your cabbie for a loop, have them drop you at one of the city’s museums, some of which pay tribute to subject matter that is only t...

Where to eat at the Shanghai airport

If you’re at all familiar with Shanghai’s great food scene, prepare to be disappointed. Despite being one of the world’s most-traveled-through airports, Shanghai Pudong International Airport is woefully sparse of good restaurants or bars to kill time while waiting for a flight. The lack of options has inspired locals and tourists alike to claim they don’t eat at the airport except when “in [a] starving situation,” and that the “best bet is Burger King or Subway.” Though after a long, grueling...

Warren Buffett Accidentally Bought Too Much Delta Stock

Buffett got back into airline investing two years ago, not quite convinced that major carriers had become 'high quality industrials' as Delta likes to argue just that the business is better than it used to be. Berkshire Hathaway promptly lost over a billion dollars on these investments. Nonetheless a month ago there were rumors he was going to buy Southwest Airlines in its entirety and that drove up the airline's share price.

French Garfield phone mystery solved

For over 30 years , orange Garfield phones (yes, as in the cartoon cat) have been strangely washing up on the French coast of Brittany. Many have speculated that the bizarre phenomenon has been due to a lost shipping container, but at last, a local farmer has confirmed this hypothesis. The farmer revealed that he discovered the container of phones after a storm in the 1980s, and now, thanks to his insight, researchers have finally been able to locate the container.
