Half-an-hour's green walk in the 16th arrondissement

Yes, in the middle of the 16th arrondissement, you can have a nice green walk, completely away from traffic.

The Highs and Lows of Hilo

A former downside—volcanic smog, called vog—is no longer present, since the volcano goddess Pele put a cork in her blowhole earlier this year, revealing blue skies for the first ti...
