a new year
We're twelve days into 2016... and I could not be more enthusiastic about the fresh start and clean slate. Sure, I've often been wary of the pressures of NYE and those gosh darn resolutions , but as the clock struck twelve on January 1st, pure joy and relie...

I just ran into your blog because I am building a site for http://BestOfColombia.co Nothing there yet-but in 2 days will be finished.

Your blog ended in 2012. You mean you haven't back to Colombia since then?  You have 4.5 million views here. That's awesome. I don't know who you are-like I said just stumbled onto your Blog) Anyway, cheers!

être dans son assiette
The weekend before last, I went home to New York. It was my first "just because" visit, a getaway simply planned in order to fully enjoy family, friends, and fall . And it was delightful, truly. For the first time in a long time, I appreciated everything ab...

then paris, of course
The train ride from Amsterdam to Paris was a long one, and in the end, exceptionally unpleasant. The air conditioner stopped working halfway through; the conductor stopped the train in an attempt to fix it; he was unsuccessful, four times; our arrival time ...

déjà vu
I'd meant to continue with the Eurotrip festivities, but current affairs have stopped me in my tracks. {Amsterdam} Two days ago, I learned yet another classmate of mine had passed away. She committed suicide after years of battling depression. She left behi...

on my way home
We hosted a dinner party this past week. We, as in my housemates and I, and it was lovely. Lovely because the intention of moving into a house with three strangers was to take a more active role in building my community and feeling at home in Los Angeles. I...

je préfére
I wonder, sometimes, if and how we're predisposed to preferences. I love the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, but that's probably because it, as representative of New York City, is "the city" I first knew; not to mention that the commotion reminds me of my...

happy hours in amsterdam-oost
I stood at the door. The host had given me clear directions to the flat and promised me his friend would meet me at 3 o'clock with the keys. It was 4:18pm (or, 16h18). I called the friend. "Oh, your friend should be inside. She was on time." Which friend, I...
