Cité Fleurie

« La Cité Fleurie » - the name indicates of course that you should find a lot of flowers. Well, then mid-January is perhaps not the best time for a “flower-visit”, but I was anyhow so happy to manage to get into this little haven, in the middle of the 13th arrondissement, normally closed for “strangers” - but sometimes you are lucky. There are 29 small pavilions here, all artist studios … and only artists are admitted. The buildings are from the 1880’s and the building materi...

The spiciest cuisines in the world

The chile pepper is as divisive a food as there is. People can either handle the heat and enjoy the pain, or they avoid every bit of pepper like it’s the plague. The group of people in the middle know their limit and stick to the devil they know. When traveling abroad to a chile-pepper-loving country, however, you can be in for a fiery surprise. Every chile pepper — from China to Ethiopia to Peru and back — originally comes from Central and South America. The plant spread around the world dur...

Underrated Mexican state capitals

Among the 32 state capitals in Mexico are a few that get almost all the attention on travel sites and agency itineraries. Mexico City, Puebla, and Oaxaca are undeniably gorgeous and should be on the list of every visitor. But if you have time and don’t depend on fixed tours or inflexible travel companions, a look beyond the conventional reveals the splendid architecture, vibrant art culture, and crazy gastronomy of the lesser-visited capital cities. Here’s where to head now before word gets o...

Germany releases currywurst coin

You might dislike a few of the state quarter designs, but none of those are as artistically questionable as this new German coin commemorating 70 years of currywurst. The coin, which features two massive bratwursts dripping with sauce, was released to celebrate a German favorite dish: bratwurst with curry sauce. And for those who really want to take their love of currywurst to the next level, the German mint is selling approximately 2,500 these coins for $14.90 each. It’s important to note, h...

United’s Plan to Put New Business Class Seats in 787s Which Fly Their Longest Routes

United made a splash introducing its new business class product two and a half years ago. Boeing 787-9s though operate United's longest haul flights, so it's appalling they have the airline's old business class product — the same old seats running San Franciso – Newark fly San Francisco – Singapore. They were delivered with old seats, and to date United had not even announced a plan to ever put new seats in them. Continue reading United’s Plan to Put New Business Class Seats in 787s Which Fly...

TSA agents blasting rap music

The longest government shutdown in US history is nearing the end of its first month, and everyone is going a little crazy. Not least of whom are the TSA agents who aren’t getting paid but are still expected to show up to work. If you think going through TSA is frustrating, try being a TSA agent working in an understaffed environment, not knowing when you’ll be getting your next paycheck. Understandably, they’re doing whatever they can to forget their woes and make the workday more bearable. F...

what i'm reading: occupy nation by todd gitlin

Occupy Nation: The Roots, the Spirit, and the Promise of Occupy Wall Street is a history and ethnography of Occupy Wall Street, and the Occupy movement. Author, sociologist, and longtime leftist activist Todd Gitlin has written an account of how a social movement was born, grew, and died. After reading it, I felt utter despair at our ability to create a more democratic political system, and a more just economic system. I'm pretty sure that's not what Gitlin was going for!It's easy to forget how...

Best orchid gardens in the world

Few flowering plant families are as diverse and geographically widespread as the orchid family, or Orchidaceae. Twenty-five thousand orchid species have been identified around the world. Some are dainty with monochromatic petals; others have big bulbous bodies and loud patterns like bright spots or stripes. Still others have the look, smell, and feel of a female bee (check out Ophrys to see for yourself) or resemble a monkey’s face (see Dracula aphrodes and Dracula marsupialis). For the best ...

Best airport bars in the US

Grabbing a stool at an airport bar generally means selecting an overpriced, watered-down cocktail or a short pour of wine from a sticky laminated menu. A new crop of airport bars is changing that, none more so than Root Down in Denver International Airport. The Denver airport is one of the best places to grab a drink during a long layover or delay in general. New Belgium Brewing has a hub in the airport, and Vino Volo serves up fine wine with cheese plates. Few bars match up to Root Down in ...
