Best architecture in Africa

Africa is big . Fifty-four countries big. Approximately 11.7 million square miles, or 20 percent of Earth’s land area, big. Around 1.3 billion people, 3,000 indigenous groups, and 2,000 languages big. To say nothing of its age, with a human history that began some 200,000 years ago and has since witnessed the rise and fall of countless empires, survived political wars and religious conflicts, experienced colonizations and reclamations of identity. Yet, despite its size and the individual herit...

Congress is bankrupting America

Two weeks ago, President Donald Trump signed the largest stimulus bill in U.S. history: more than $2 trillion. For once, both Republicans and Democrats agreed. The Senate voted 96-0. The House didn’t even bother with a formal vote. At the White House, a reporter asked the president, pointing out that the bill includes $25 million for the Kennedy Center, “Shouldn’t that money be going to masks?” “The Kennedy Center has suffered greatly because nobody can go there,” Trump responded. “They do need ...

The 1990s-est England Test XI

Let’s pick a 1990s England XI. We’re not looking for a good team here; we’re not trying to pick a bad one either. We’re just trying to pick an England Test team that couldn’t be more Nineties if it tried. A 1990s England team is not really about the stalwarts for the simple reason that picking players repeatedly is very much not what the Nineties was about for England. The Nineties was about failing to ever establish a settled XI. So, as paradoxical as it is, we have to try and reflect ...

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...

In Zimbabwe, 'you win coronavirus or you win starvation'

The World Health Organization's recommended virus precautions seem far-fetched for many of Zimbabwe's 15 million people. Last year a United Nations expert called the number of hungry people in Zimbabwe “shocking” for a country not in conflict. Harare, like most cities and towns across Zimbabwe, has an acute water shortage and residents at times go for months, even years, without a working tap.
