VIDEO: A Marrakech Minute

MARRAKECH – Camels on the beach. Fountains in the riad. Palm trees against a purple sky. Escape to Morocco with a short film by Andrew De Francesco and Gavin Bellour. 

Fathom Questionnaire: Marguerite Richards

Favorite destinations: The strip of coast between Dubrovnik and Monte Negro by scooter. Rome by night. On the road to Porto where a friendly farmer shared his oranges. 

A Minibar Christmas

LISBON – I see a homeless guy masturbating. The same guy who yesterday I would have bet was having sex under his blanket. Well, why not? It's free. And it's Christmas. Small pleasures.
