The Witch, the Dwarf and the King

“. . . before the ground was occupied by the unique oval-based pyramid and symbol of Uxmal, it was home to a Maya witch. Distraught over being childless, she fabricated an egg from which bore a dwarf she claimed as her son. Perhaps due to his unusual conception, insecurities surrounding…

The Sanctum of Liberty

As we approached Capitol Hill the early morning sun was now blocked by the massive US Capitol Building and its facade was taking shape. For the twenty five minutes we walked along Pennsylvania Avenue, the building was prominent on the horizon at the end of the avenue yet hidden in…

The Belly of Mexilio

"Now somewhere in the belly of the hotel, we were led through a mad labyrinth of narrow staircases - some no more than a foot wide - wood plank bridges, multi-leveled roof-top terraces, secret passages covered by red tile awnings and a forest of greenery to reach our room late…

Under Swelling Stone

It's difficult to capture the loft of the vaults of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Great Hall. The beautiful use of the round Romanesque arch produces a kind of bubbling effect to the space. It always reminded me of the architecture of the Basilica of Maxentius in the Roman Forum. And…

The Edison and Ford Winter Estate

When Thomas Edison first visited Fort Myers Florida it must have looked vastly different than today. No nondescript urban sprawl, no budget motels and no 2 for 1 T-shirt shops. In fact little existed in the area aside from the abandoned fort of the city's namesake. So it's pretty remarkable…

Mobile Munchies

Big fat corn, the biggest kernels I’ve ever seen, roast on open-air grills and are more fun to munch on than movie popcorn; Servings of chicharron or what we would call fried pork rinds are distributed from narrow shops, often only the width of a doorway; Adobo, a marinated chicken…
