Sonny Bono started the film festival 23 years ago and it keeps getting better every year.

Housed at the Himalayan base of Garhwal (Uttaranchal), all the aforesaid locations…Continue

Idea to make gigantic kite, more than twenty meters in diameter that will never fly may sound crazy. But, when you come to the festival, it seems so logical and nice; colors, pictures and messages that can be seen on every single one of the kites exhibited here create…Continue

Some have been extraordinary adventures; others much more ordinary. This year I opted for culture and a very different kind of destination. The Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach runs for one month in the summer…Continue
