Grand American Terminal

Although America has a rich locomotive history our current car culture has all but completely steamrolled passenger train travel prominence. When globe trotting the world, beautiful symbols of train travel pepper history's greatest 19th century industrial nations.

Tropical Snow

"...when least expected, tell-tale signs of Christmas cheer arose in pretty extraordinary ways throughout the Yucatan. Most town plazas were capped with enormous and elaborately decorated Christmas trees complete with garland and dusted in at least two and a half inches of phony snowfall. The Palacio de Gobierno in Mérida…

Bryant Park Skate

It was my last day in New York and my only real free time. I was out the door of the Fitzpatrick by 7AM and didn't need to check out until 11. By 9 my fingers were numb and the backs of my hands were starting to tingle. Luckily inspired…

Greenbrier Theater

Panorama of Nothing

"There are no geographical features present on the flat limestone shelf of the Yucatán. Just as a diverse landscape of drastically varying topography is interesting to the eye, a panorama of nothing can be just as awe-inspiring. The Yucatán is an ocean of vegetation that can really make one feel…

Fossils of Kabah

". . . the first sign of the spectacular lies thirty kilometers due south of Uxmal. The claustrophobic canopy is broken by a large grassy expanse several football fields square and shorn short enough to be fit for a Saturday scrimmage. Laid out like a piece of green pool table…

Maya Retirement

... standing at Tulum's El Castillo and gazing off into turquoise wonderland, I couldn't imagine this being a theater for war and conquest or home to any gods of death. Possibly, after thousands of years of hardships, starvation, sacrifice and fright the Maya were simply tired and sought a simpler,…
