Bali photo

Last day in Ubud – Bali … instead of running around to temples or rice fields, I chose to walk and closely watch the people in town … behind Monkey Forest Road, life is more normal, quieter and deprived of the Western luxury of farang restaurants.

Singapore – the Lion City from the land’s end. Episode 2

Singapore: Merlion

Some say that “Singapore is a fine city”. For the ones that love shopping, it’s a fine city whereas for a bit more difficult bunch, it’s “the city of fines”. There is no place that doesn’t tell you not to spit or smoke, not transport durians, not to cross on the red light or not to drink water in the bus as you’ll get fines with way too many zeros. But still, what can one do in Singapore? read more…

Singapore: Merlion

For some, Singapore is the paradise of order, discipline and cleanliness– where else could you find an entire Indian neighborhood that is spotless?

Things to see in Nicosia: Selimye

For many years, the border between the Turkish Cypriots and Greeks was tightly closed… From one side to the other, only high officials and UN troops were passing by. Then, a passing point was opened, the famous checkpoint called Ledra Palace, next to what it used to be the coolest hotel of united Nicosia. After that, foreigners were allowed to cross on the other  side, but only by foot and provided they returned by 6 P.M. If they arrived late, The Republic of Cyprus did not accept them anymore in Southern Nicosia.
