A festival of joy in Ecuador

A festival of joy in Ecuador
I have been here for no more than an hour. It is the Corpus Christi festival held in Cuenca, Ecuador but I’ve known her for more than a few weeks now. The little mop-haired, beady eyed girl can be no more than seven or eight years old, even if she looks older than her age. Ours was a friendship forged on the sort of opening line one friend doesn’t normally say to another. In halting English, she asked me if I wanted my shoes polished. I politely refused her offer, smiling inwardly when I saw that I was wearing a pair of simple canvas sneakers that she couldn’t have polished at all. I found her lack of observation interesting; she found my wobbly Spanish to be even more interesting. In the weeks that followed, she taught me (at my request) several gestures and phrases that would doubtlessly  [...]

Memoirs of Paris
I lust for Paris as I know it, a small slice of the city of light. Perhaps I am just a bit homesick and missing what I consider my spiritual home, but that is impossibility, for I am here in Paris. This gut-wrenching feeling hits me every time I return here, as if the city I once embraced lovingly is now giving me the cold shoulder, as if it resents me. It hits me every single time. I have lived here and left, and re-visiting is like sitting down for dinner with an ex-lover; you can try and try, but the relationship will never be as good as it once was. Emily and I have been here for four days. Four days…how time flies when you are shaking off the after-effects of jet lag and swimming in the mutual love for one another. I almost didn’t notice that our chambre à deux personnes had just  [...]

Ras Al Khaimah: Where eagles prey on the imagination
It is only you get up close that you realize the golden eagle’s claws are like a razor’s edge, lethal and cutting. The one perched on the falconer’s hand is simply clamping down with all her force and wings spread slightly, an expression of her anger. She is, in her own way, like a child that wanted a particular toy or perhaps it is more a case of a woman scorned. Hell hath no fury like it. She continues to stomp, as if evening out a small sandy dune. But she is hooded and thus no threat. I’m just glad that she isn’t perched on my hand; she seems a real handful. ‘In the wild, the female is the more dominant of the two genders. The key is to be fearless, it is almost as if they can smell it coming from a mile away. Just go in there and grab her as if you own her. Push her head down  [...]
