Beating my Drum French La Vie

Come see Provence, those villages that are worth a thousand photos, where cobblestones make you wish you wore walking shoes, and shutters of blues that you want to take and stuff in your suitcase but you know you cannot. Where walking through one village after another you are transported into some magical place that inspires your breathing into song.     French Breakfast. The real deal. Where eating baguettes and croissants with butter and jam never added weight to anyone. You see the Fre...

Azulejos...

There is a new entrance to the Champs-Elysées-Clemenceau metro station. I have used the station since years… never thought about how the walls are decorated, but using the corridor leading to the new entrance (or exit), I was struck by the wall decoration (see top picture)… … and when looking around I realised that the walls of the whole station are decorated by a large number of similar ceramics.   I then learnt that they are all created by a...

Sick in India. Such a Cliche.

It started with one single sneeze at dinner last night. Afterwards when I returned to my tissueless room I became aware that my nose had begun running like a leaky faucet. Hmm maybe I was coming down with something. I popped in a couple of Nyquil and hope

Tokyo wrestler, a street portrait

One of the key benefits of living in Tokyo is that you never really know what — or perhaps more accurately who — is going to greet you round the next corner. It could be a man carrying a huge tortoise. Maybe even a young bloke in the shortest of very short shorts. Or in this case, merely a bare-chested wrestler taking a post-bout rest.

These 5 Words Should Be On Every Room Service Menu

If you order room service, food is brought to your room, that's a service. Room service generally has a service charge. Great problem solved! Or is it? You're asked to sign for the meal, and there's usually a line to add a tip. Does the service charge have you covered, or is the hotel pocketing that and you're expected to tip again?

The Most Endangered Plant in Every State in the United States: An Illustrated Tribute

This and That

Just a variety of photos taken with my new phone. The first photo I took with my new phone. I’m not sure if the camera is better than my old one yet. A restaurant near our place. It was our first time there. It had a very nice ambiance but was really overpriced so I don’t think we will return. A reflection of the Eiffel Tower on the wet sidewalk. A Muslim Princess? The Paris Weather Girl spots another great sunrise.
