London Still Celebrating the Royal Wedding

The wedding day of Will and Kate is over, but the occasion is still very much alive in London.  Everywhere I go, people are talking about it...where they watched it, how lovely the dress was, how sad it was that Diana wasn't there to see it, how poised the young couple was, how wonderful it is for the country.  The shop windows are full of their congratulations, and the street parties carry on for another day.  …

Richard Branson Does It Again: Virgin America Is the Only Way to Fly in the U.S.

I had a wonderful opportunity of traveling in an airline that’s, well let’s just say different from the other leading airlines. I am talking about Sir Richard Branson’s well-thought out creation, Virgin America. So, what’s so different about Virgin America? Well, for one, the airplanes have a unique interior to them. It doesn’t feel like you’re entering into a regular airplane. The mood lighting throughout the airplane and the elegant seats add to the sleek interior.

Now, I am…

by Denise Mattia

 

IN VINO VERITAS

Finally there’s a Spanish wine that suits most palates.  Branded Tapeña, it’s a clever combination of the Spanish word Tapas (TAH-paz), foods to share, and peña, a slang word for a group of close friends.

 

The grape comes from the Tierra de Castilla region in the heart of Spain, an area that’s highly…

Afo-A-Kom: The Lost Totem

The Afo-A-Kom is far from the world's greatest piece of art—or even Africa's. A 5-ft. 2½in. image of a king, it is rather crudely carved in iroko wood, the torso covered with sackcloth stitched with reddish-brown beads, the face masked in copper. But the Afo-A-Kom (literally, the Kom thing) is sacred to the approximately 30,000 people who constitute the Kom kingdom, a tribal… Continue

Tipping Guidelines - Notes for Other Countries

I'm often asked what the tipping guidelines are in other countries. I would like to say to use the guidelines that we use here in the U.S. The truth is that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Every country has different guidelines. Some places a few dollars may be fine or a couple of dollars. In other places, a few dollars may get snubbed.



The purpose of a tip is to express appreciation for a service also called a gratuity. One question always asked is in the case of… Continue
