This Friday, I’m headed to one of the largest, most densely populated cities in the world—Mexico City, also know as D.F. (day-f-ay, as it’s pronounced) which stands for Districto Federal. I took a 5-day trip there in 2006, but this … Continue reading

Never heard of Hydra? Well, it’s a Greek island, one of the Saronic Islands to be exact, located in the Aegean Sea just about three hours from Athens, by boat of course. The only reason I know this is because … Continue reading
If you happen to be Greek island-hopping in the Mediterranean this week, don’t miss the four-night performance of Black Mirror, a new live installation video-performance by American visual artist Doug Aitken. Presented for the first time in Greece this June … Continue reading
