As I flip through my passport with almost two hundred stamps, and look back on my 185 posts in my WordPress blog, numerous posts on Tripatani or Travel Bloggers Unite, and my 75 reviews on Trip Advisor, I realized that I am living a dream come true.

En Marraquech, el Cuscús de la Abuela

Callejones llenos de polvo. Niños correteando y sorteando a los turistas. El olor a especias que se mete en los pulmones. Una moto por aquí, un burro por allá y los gritos del que quiere vender para ganarse el pan diario. La mezquita como un espejismo.

High Noon in Small-Town Mexico



Guitar case
 full of weapons, guns swinging from each hand, whole bars full of villains wiped out by one man and his sharp shooting. It is surely the hallmark of only one man, an actor who can keep both a male and female audience simultaneously breathless (if for very different reasons). Antonio Banderas as “El Mariachi” cuts a lonesome,…
