Summer Postcards 2015
I'm very, very bad at skipping rocks.
The Yellow Brick Road never looked so good.
The Fan in Kazan
It’s my penultimate day at Kazan Arena, and my 18-year-old sister is in line to make history.
This city, located at the shore of the Indian ocean, has a flavor unlike any other part of India.
The leaves of the trees above me rustle, as if whispering in the language of friction, "Are you getting all of this?"
A view of the Plaza Baquedano (commonly known as the Plaza Italia), a large city square that serves as Santiago’s zero-kilometer marker and is considered the capital’s most important socioeconomic dividing marker, forming the boundary of Providencia and the center of Santiago and, by extension, the wealthy Sector Nororiente (northeastern sector) and the rest of the city. It is also the city’s most popular location for demonstrations and celebrations, especially after football matches.
Trading Seasons, Part 2
Perhaps the only comparison I can make between Valparaíso and a U.S. city would be to call it a cross between San Francisco and Detroit (though smaller than both).
A view of the Santiago skyline, looking northeast from the Cerro Santa Lucía (Santa Lucía Hill). The Cerro San Cristóbal is the large hill at left, while the Andes Mountains are faintly visible in the background.
Trading Seasons: Spending Summer Break in a Chile Winter
At some point during the 11-hour flight between Miami and Santiago, a realization finally struck me—I was travelling to the Southern Hemisphere.
A view of the El Tatio Geysers. Located at the foot of the Andes in the Atacama Desert near San Pedro de Atacama at an elevation of over 14,000 feet, El Tatio is the world’s third-largest geothermal field, and is also the highest geyser basin in the world.
Playa de Reñaca
