The saddest of Tokyo smiles

There were numerous drafts of this, but none of them felt appropriate, or managed to capture the horribly poignant nature of that jarring English phrase. Then it dawned on me that the words in the photograph said something, but at the same time had absolutely zero substance, and that seemed entirely fitting considering how the problem of poverty is almost always approached.

Around the Eiffel Tower

Actually not very close to the Eiffel Tower but I could see it from just about everywhere. What is it with all of these locks? It has continued for years. I guess it’s considered romantic. I always see them around rivers. 2020 did seem a lot like the end of many things. Underneath the Lena Bridge is some art deco construction. I especially liked these columns. A pretty window of, I think, a hair salon. I don’t know if this TV was for sale or not but it bro...

We have a new word for that feeling when travel makes everything new

On a double-decker bus from Dublin airport to Drumcondra early one June morning, a young lad stretched out on the back seat and started to rap. What he lacked in talent he made up for in gusto. I was with a dozen of my students who were travelling from DePaul University in Chicago on a study abroad trip and this was their very first impression of Ireland. I cringed and tried to ignore the atonal reveller. Their response, it turned out, was at odds with mine. 'That's American rap!' one of them ch...

Data shows tourists visiting Hawaii have least impact on Hawaii COVID-19 cases

In fact, it shows that “non-resident visitors”, i.e. tourists, have had the least impact on cases.

In Memory Of Arne Sorenson | By Iqbal Ahmed

For more than a decade, while working as a concierge for a hotel in London, I became familiar with the name of its eponymous founder, Mr Marriott. His name was somewhat legendary for guests and hosts alike because a father and son duo had run the company for eight decades under their identical name, J. Willard Marriott, distinguishable only by the suffix 'Snr' or 'Jnr'. But then, in 2012, I heard that someone called Arne Sorenson had succeeded Bill Marriott Jnr as the CEO of the company. ...
