The family of wild dolphins in Troia, Portugal

They're friendly, cute and crazy about children. They're a family of resident dolphins that live in the Sado estuary called "bottlenose", a very common specie of dolphins. We all love to see dolphins and for

Troia you have the opportunity of seeing them in the wild.

Each dolphin has been identified and has a name.

Snowpocalypse Never: In Quebec, Winter's Just an Excuse to Kick It Up a Notch

Folks in large swaths of the USA’s Northeast have been shellshocked by the so-called “snowpocalypse” (or is it snowmageddon?) these past several days, but meanwhile, up here in southern Quebec, I’ve been witnessing firsthand how little the locals let a little weather slow them down. In fact, they take it up a notch. Even with average annual snowfalls of 14 feet (4 meters) and subfreezing temperatures, for the past 55 years Quebeckers have thrown their own pre-Lenten… Continue

Monroe’s coffin on display at New York’s City hall on July 3, 1858. Before the body was taken to Virginia for burial…It must of had a rather musty smell after being in a vault for 27 years…But there seems to be no mention of it. The smell I guess was not too strong as the inner coffin was switched to a new one. The inner coffin was made of lead, and it was placed inside a… Continue

Walking Tour of Hue Citadel, Vietnam.

I was in Vietnam last November - was lucky to catch Hanoi's weather at its best, and was even luckier to find Central Vietnam at its sunniest (a fluke, I'm assured by people who know the place). The sunburn I got from tramping all over Hue was worth it.

The guest rooms were a dated hodgepodge of grandmother's attic furnishings and the amenities were minimal. Today, the inn has been transformed into one of Washington's great European-style boutique inns, offering deluxe suites and… Continue
