7 Dec, 2014 in Mexico City, Visions

I wasn’t planning anything special for Thanksgiving, but two weeks of -10c average daytime temperatures in Champaign ignited the need to escape to warmer climates and so – way past last minute – I begun looking for cheap tickets and ended up booking a trip to Mexico City. To be completely frank, I had no […]

Visions of Jerusalem 2-058

Although I’ve lived in Jerusalem for most of my young life, Jerusalem remains a treasure of hidden gems and spectacular beauty.

New York City is everything I remembered it to be and much more. Last time I was in NYC as a tourist, it was 2001 just after 9/11 to visit a friend studying in Julliard, and it was a bit depressing, so this was my chance to relive NYC as a tourist and during the […]
