I read it as a child, as a teen, and as an adult, and I understood it on different levels at different times of my life -- and that's probably a common experience.

Cannabis laws in South Africa

In 2018, South Africa decriminalized the use, possession, and growth of marijuana. This made it, at the time, one of the most lenient countries in the world when it comes to cannabis. The new laws didn’t go so far as to open South Africa to cannabis tourism like the legalization in Canada and select parts of the United States. It is, however, possible to enjoy cannabis while traveling through South Africa. But before trying South Africa’s top strains like Durban Poison or Swazi Gold, you need...

The travel industry has grinded to a virtual halt, with people canceling their plans and airlines cutting the majority of their routes for the next few months.

‘Tiger King’ on Netflix

In 2017, I visited Tampa’s Big Cat Rescue and had a private media tour led by Susan Bass. Bass appears in the mega-hit Netflix documentary Tiger King, which premiered to great enthusiasm earlier this month. I heard from friends that the organization run by Carole Baskin (a central and not entirely sympathetic figure in the documentary), is not positively portrayed, but I wanted to decide for myself. From my experience at the sanctuary, I believed Big Cat Rescue had its heart in the right plac...

Mountain goats take over Welsh town

A nationwide lockdown has kept the residents of Wales indoors, but it’s done no such thing for the nearby mountain goats. Sensing a golden opportunity, Kashmiri goats from the Great Orme headland have descended upon Llandudno, a nearby seaside town in Wales, in a not-so-hostile takeover. Residents stuck indoors now at least have an amusing spectacle to witness from their windows, as the goats meander around town and make themselves at home.
