U.S. & Mexico's Wide, Wide West: Buses & Borders


Puerto Libertad is a notch ahead of Puerto Lobos.  At least it has some hotels, and restaurants, too—even an Oriental one, I hear.  But I know in my heart the trip’s really over, anyway, because once the rhythm’s broken, then you have to skip to the next…

Estrasburgo de Birra y Cuento

Las casitas de madera son como de cuento de los hermanos Grimm. Las flores alegran las fachadas inclinadas. Las banderas de la Unión Europea ondean en los balcones. Si uno enciende la tele o lee un periódico, Europa parece estar más de moda que nunca. ¿Por qué no…

Vancouver's Granville Island


Living on my back, people come, telling their stories, singing their songs. They celebrate together, their significant days and their creative ways. I am the spirit of the island they once called Snauq, born of the ocean. Like a sand castle I may be moulded and used, remoulded and used again. Like nature itself, the possibilities abound.
