The Hum of Mojacar
MOJACAR, SPAIN – The travel gods were frowning on us. We’d put in the effort, read the book, asked locals. Why were we not being rewarded with secret gardens and crazy parties in international waters?
Brawn and Brains
LONDON – Everything about Brawn is genteel, friendly, cozy, and fun. The bar is decorated with a birdcage and fake parakeet; cookbooks share space with wine bottles on the shelves. The young mix with the old, the hipsters with the stodgy.
The Roman Leatherman
ROME – The chair arrived in London in a long tube a few weeks later. The craftsmanship is superb; the leather is beautiful. Ben spends many a sunny afternoon lounging in his courtyard, exactly as he had imagined.
