I travel for the Culture

My First Time: The Lowdown on Bhutan

BHUTAN – The people are consistently lovely and the natural beauty is among the best in the world. It's is a singular and meditative pleasure.

Camel's Milk Chai in Pushkar

PUSHKAR, India – These are not Starbucks lattes. Camel-herding chai wallahs make their morning chai from scratch.

Fathom Questionnaire: Porter Fox

Best hotel amenity: A maharaja costume at a haveli in India. I tried it on and the staff played along and treated me like a king all night, until they made me take it off.

This Is Not the Nigeria I Know

NIGERIA – The country has great difficulties, but it also has a tremendous passion for life, rich traditions, and an enormous respect for educating boys and girls.
