Barcelona Arenas: From Bullring To Cash Cow

Monday, August 29, 2011

The Arenas Bullring, Barcelona’s iconic structure, once again felt the roar of the crowd and the tremble of footsteps upon its historic sands this year. However, no bull or matador was present. The bullring has been officially reborn as an entertainment complex. Arenas now houses 115 shops, a cinema and Barcelona’s brand new rock museum, Musel del […]

He shrugged at me. “It’s Berber silver, sir.” “It isn’t though is it? Because it isn’t Berber, and it isn’t silver. Therefore, not Berber silver. Anyway, you didn’t mention the Berber bit when you sold it to me. I think the word you used at the time was ‘Sterling.’ I want my 200 dirham back.” […]

I’m Not Sad To See Bullfighting Go In Spain

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Allow me to first clarify that I am not a radical animal rights activist. The idea of chucking red paint on a fur coat is not only unappealing and a destruction of personal property but, heck, plain old impolite. Hyper-radical political movements, while they sometimes achieve change, usually result in repulsion rather than legislation. Take PETA (People […]

Sidetracked In The Pyrenees

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Shifting into fourth gear I started to wonder if the world was coming to an end. The ray of sunshine shadowing my car had gone, suddenly replaced by a large black cloud that loomed almost directly over head. A shot of lightning streaked across the horizon followed by an earth-shattering boom.

The Netherlands — apparently long a haven for visitors looking to partake in illegal drugs — is set to ban foreigners from entering the country’s famed cannabis cafes by the end of the year. Interestingly, the proposed ban will not affect locals who will be issued one-year membership cards — so-called “Dope Passes” — that […]

Actually, it’s not unusual in Paris to mosey into a patisserie or chocolaterie for a midday snack, but one so fantastic that you’d hardly believe it was just a quick bite.
