With state legislation proposed that could remove the 710 Freeway extension from future consideration, Alhambra and Pasadena are making preparations for what could happen to the almost-100 acres of land comprising the loose freeway ends.

History of Landscapes Starts with Stonehenge. Really.

As threatened  promised, I’m blogging the History of Landscape course I’m taking at the University of Maryland, and here’s my first post. The (fabulous) teacher I’ll be quoting is Caren Yglesias. Interestingly to me, when I tell people I’m taking a class in landscape history I get questions like – does it start with Olmsted? English gardens? I love answering that it actually starts with Stonehenge because of the look of bewilderment on their faces. So what IS a landscape, anyway? Wikipedia say...

Why you need to see Granada, Spain

“ If I were not afraid of being charged with excessive local patriotism I would try to describe Granada, since I have the opportunity. However, such is its fame that there is no sense in speaking at length about it.” — Ibn Juzayy (Ibn Battuta’s 14th-century ghostwriter) Angkor Wat, Mt. Rushmore, and the Taj Mahal are places so famous that the cities that fall under their shadow are usually left out of the story or, at least, often go underlooked. They’re global must-sees, where steady streams ...

Best Chinese food in Los Angeles

For many, Los Angeles ends at the river. But if you stop there, you fall short of exploring one of the best Chinatowns in America. The San Gabriel Valley in East LA is known for strip malls, but not the soulless type of strip mall devoid of culture you’d find most everywhere else in the country. Drive down Valley Boulevard and you’ll see that it’s an artery that connects the hundreds of Chinese restaurants in the cities of Monterey Park, Alhambra, San Gabriel, and Rosemead.

Casbah Robert Piguet: The Ancient City

  In its original meaning, the Arabic word Kasbah (قصبة) meant a citadel, a fortress inside the city. Sometimes they stood inside the city, like the Saladin Casbah in Cairo or the Spanish Alcazaba in the Alhambra complex, and sometimes they were fortresses in the desert, strongholds of protection against raids. In Serbian, Turkish, and Urdu, kasaba means a small provincial town, and in Yem... Read full article: Casbah Robert Piguet: The Ancient City from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magaz...
