This week's travel picture: the facade of a tiny noodle restaurant in downtown Tokyo, where you can eat fresh noodles under the watchful eye of the King of the Monsters himself.

For this week's travel picture, we move from India to Indonesia! This is a picture of a rice paddy in Bali, one of the most beautiful natural places we've visited in 2009. Bali is a lot more touristy than Eat, Pray, Love would have you believe, but it's still a place filled with immense natural beauty.

One of our favorite travel pictures: +Helene Cormier and I sitting on Manick's tired bench, drinking his delicious chai while watching the madness of Sudder Street stream by. Helene is wearing a dupata she bought from a fantastic Kashmiri vendor a few blocks away.

This week's travel memory: enjoying a shisha (narghile) pipe in Souq Waqif, in Doha, Qatar, waiting for our soon-to-be good friend Tracy! I've enjoyed many shishas in the Middle East, and this one, with tobacco soaked in fresh fruit juice, was one of the best.
