Postcards tagged: Learning is Fun
THAILAND – New York chef Marc Meyer crossed the globe to learn Thai cooking. It's all about ingredients, elements, combinations.
In the spirit of packing light and keeping our eyes on the road, we're leaving the books at home and loading up on podcasts.
SERENGETI, Tanzania – If the rain comes, they will all start to drop. So they run. Some give birth as they run. Run for their lives.
HUE – Let me just say that I'm a pretty confident cook. Not this time. I spilled everywhere. I couldn't spread the batter. I couldn't lift the crepe without knotting it into a crumbled mess.
NANTUCKET – It isn't all beaches, hydrangeas, and girls in Lily Pulitzer shifts. For me, the faraway island is synonymous with the Atheneum, the beloved library.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Not sure what the official local specialty is, but the trip's culinary highlights include homemade brown sugar and cinnamon pop tarts eaten at breakfast at Ted's Bulletin.
KOH SAMUI, Thailand – While other travelers to paradise were having plastic surgery, James Sturz decided to carve the flesh of fruits instead.
HONG KONG – A photographer and a beekeeper connect creative types through simple DIY workshops and community events.
PALM SPRINGS – They created spin art on vintage vinyl, felted tiny rocks, and painted T-shirts while screaming (with joy, I think) for hours.
STOCKBRIDGE, Massachusetts – It was time explore some culture. Because it was raining and there was no laser tag emporium. So we headed to the Norman Rockwell Museum.
