El Salvador — Bolas de Fuego

You may have heard of El Salvador for a number of reasons, although the most prominent story is often, sadly, gang violence. There are, however, many other aspects to this small, friendly Central American country which contribute to a reality far from the image...

On the Shores of Lake Baikal

On the Shores of Lake Baikal

A Shooting Star Over Baghdad

A Shooting Star Over Baghdad

Tonight's flight to Doha is a bit different than last night's flight to Istanbul from Toronto. Nine out of ten passengers are men over the age of 50 and I'm one of five women. There is a lot of snoring happening compared to this morning's cries of small children. The...
