Murals in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Murals in Flagstaff

Flagstaff is along America’s famous road trip route, the Route 66. If you’ve seen the animated movie Cars, then, you’re familiar with this route. In fact, Route 66 is the main road that divides Flagstaff’s North and South area. Though Flagstaff nowadays is not anymore your regular road trip stop, I’d still recommend you to […]

The Proud One World Trade Center

I was a surprised that there were only few people / tourists on the streets of New York City on July 4th. It’s not the scene of New York that I am used to. A friend and I walked around Tribeca and other touristy spots but we were relieved to see only few people around. […]

Toronto City Hall Has A New Look

Well, the new look doesn’t involve a massive, expensive renovation nor red paint. All they had to do was put up a multi-coloured sign that spells the city’s name. I reckon that the various colours stand for the city’s multi-cultural communities. However, the neon-coloured sign won’t be there long enough. It will be removed after […]

Brazil and Panama Soccer Match at PanAm Games / Toronto 2015.

Things I learned from Brazil and Panama Soccer Match at PanAm Games 2015

First of all, I’m not a sports fan. I don’t do, go and play games (not even computer games) at all. I do watch some games but I don’t have a favourite game to watch. I watch for the heck and thrill of it. And when I watch, I shout, clap and jump with passion. […]

This Church Altar in Remedios is Made of Gold

Cuba, unlike any other Spanish-speaking countries, is not staunch Catholic. And that’s according to my Cuban landlords. Though Catholic churches are everywhere in the country, it doesn’t mean Cubans are devout Catholics. Well, these churches aren’t totally empty; there are few who pray on the pews. Remedios is a dusty, colonial town in Cuba’s Villa […]
