Multumim Cluj-Napoca pentru primirea frumoasa si ne revedem in toamna lui 2017!
I was invited by the folks at Light, who are working on some pretty interesting camera technology, to write about my favorite vantage point. I explained to them, as I'm explaining to you now, that I don't have one.

I made a short video last year, which I wasn't sure I should post publicly, because it contains disturbing imagery. However, I finally convinced myself I should, simply because I want you, dear reader, to be able to make informed decisions when you go shopping for food. The video you're about to see shows the … Continue reading Sick Chickens
Romanian cuisine was (and still can be) wonderfully varied and delicious. Not only are there different dishes in each region of the country, but even the basics, the staple traditional dishes, are prepared differently from region to region.

I mentioned this place back in April, in my two-part article about Venice, but I wanted to tell you about it in more detail. It's called Al Ponte di Rialto Self Service. It's an unassuming name for an unassuming edifice, but don't let its looks fool you. It's some of the best pizza in Venice, … Continue reading Some of the best pizza in Venice, Italy
