How to make your gray city SMILE again

It is during the harshest time of winter that cities earn their stripes. Freezing winds, icy sidewalks, slushy streets, doomsday light: a bad city becomes something to avoid or, at best, endure.

Yet, some clever cities, especially in the North, where light is rare and precious, have found a simple way to lift some of the drudgery out of the picture: color!

Check out how these buildings, painted in a wide palette of pastels, lift some of the winter's misery cheerfully and effortlessly.

How to eat tapas (like a Basque)

A scallop wrapped in aged bacon cooked just so. Three asparagus tips in truffle-oil mayonnaise. Some paper-thin slices of Jamón serrano.
Plenty of Rioja wine in oversize snifters. Plus a boisterous giggly crowd enjoying all this and cross-recommending the next miniature deliciousness to try.

Welcome to the world of tapas the way the Basque people do it!!!

+betsy baker thank you, I really value your feedback. I will see what can be done: everything is changing all the time and it is hard to keep up, especially from a smartphone as I move around...

Before GPS: the Lighthouse: yesterday's hi tech

Imagine being on a boat, in darkest night, pounded by waves, off a dangerous coast. Without GPS!

All you had were maps telling you to keep your eyes open for a distant lighthouse that will give you some idea of your whereabouts. Pelted by rain, an adolescent boy, perched high up on the highest mast, scans the darkness for a distant light that flickers. Seeing it on time spells the difference between life and death.

This is how navigation was done in the years after the hi tech wonder that was the lighthouse started appearing on the globe's most treacherous coasts. And some of them, like this one in the video, are still rotating their lonely beams at nights, romantic and haunting at the same time...

How to garden: flowers that smell great

People often ask me what to plant next to their doors and windows. My answer is unequivocal: something that smells great!

Don't you want to be greeted by glorious fragrance every time you open your windows or step out of your front door?

Today we will look at two of the hardiest, easiest flowering plants to create a bubble of perfume around your house: clematis and wisteria.

Google drones map Palmyra in 3D

Google drones flew over ruined ancient sites in Syria taking millions of digital images to stitch together an incredible immersive 3D experience before human stupidity turns these places to dust.

The project was sponsored by Google Arts & Culture and includes Palmyra, the ancient desert Roman city I loved so much.

Notre-Dame: Midnight Christmas mass at the Hunchback's

A gorgeous night at one of the world's most mythical cathedrals, right in the heart of Paris. Quasimodo, perched somewhere on the high towers, was full of delight: the bells were ringing all night!

Fizzy fermented beet juice: friendly bacteria for your gut

There are few fermented drinks you can make so easily & cheaply that provide:
- invaluable nutrients, vitamins, minerals
- friendly bacteria: the benefits of a fermented food (as with yoghurt, miso, kimchi, sauerkraut, kombucha, kefir etc)
- cleansing & detox
- hangover benefits
- and a cure for early-stage yeast infection ("bye-bye cranberry juice", she said)

All you need is some beets, salt & water. And it tastes great!

The joys of the outdoor farmer's market

Imagine living in a big city and still be able to buy your food straight from a farmer!
Without having to cross the horrible neon-lit aisles of an awful super market, hunting for the one fresh unprocessed item in an ocean of boxes screaming with "offers" and chemicals. Without having to see a single product that is somehow "more" by having "less" (less fat, less sugar, less cholesterol etc). Without having to bathe yourself in the lying mantras of an industry that is scientifically and morally bankrupt.

So, abandon your cart in the middle of the aisle, grab your recyclable bag and head over, with me, to the outdoor farmer's market where the roof is the sky. Where the people speak to each other as they pick their family's dinner.

Formal Beauty: at the oldest town square in Paris

A town square in a large metropolis is like an oasis. Rushed and deafened by traffic and city din, you make a turn and, out of nowhere, you arrive at the town square.
First of all, big sky: suddenly you are out of the grid and the shaded canyons of buildings and boulevards.
Second: greenery and, especially at an old square, majestic old trees.
But in this particular square, in the video, called Place des Vosges, you get a lot more: centuries of history and the sumptuous harmony of proportion in its architecture.
Let's visit!

2017 New Year Wish: Let's build bridges

Bridges of understanding. Bridges of compassion.
Last year once again reminded us of the incredible messiness of the human condition. Suddenly, the world seems all the more complicated, its problems unsolvable, its polarizations unbridgeable.
Predictably, a certain type of individual has emerged in several countries promising to clean it all up for us and in one masterstroke restore our lost paradises. It is only (s)he that can restore purity by ridding us of the pollution of multiplicity and diversity.
Don't believe him/her!
(But neither believe those with entrenched interests in the status quo. It is their arrogance that has brought the fundamentalists to power).
Democracy is messy because humans are messy irrational creatures. This cannot change. It is part of our innate silliness and loveliness.
The only thing we can do is to try to migrate from the "*us versus them*" to the "*you and I*". It's the toughest bridge to build...

How to plant Tulips NOW: the easy way

Who wouldn't want to wake up one early spring morning and find their garden exploding with colorful Tulips?
(And I am not just speaking of a couple of tulips here and there but of masses of them blanketing your garden, as in your dreams of Holland!)
It is easy and cheap and your tulips will keep coming back for years without any effort. And if you are having a soft winter, you can still do it!
