In the cultured and sophisticated city of Zürich there are still movie theaters that stop the film right smack in the middle to sell you popcorn, candy, and ice cream. Unglaublich!
We married in Miami on January 6, 2012. A woman took a picture for us. Five years later, we took our own picture on the same spot.
Love can change you and the world!
For Thanksgiving, yes Thanksgiving here in our house in Switzerland (Nov. 2016), we accompanied the pies with an organic turkey that weighed slighly less than the pumpkin: 7.2 Kg, almost 16 lbs. This turkey tasted very fresh and with barely any fat. It was delicious. A bit pricey for US standards at $15/lb or Fr32/Kg. We had to order it a week in advance.
Harvested at the beginning of November 2016, this pumpkin from our garden was enough for two pies, stews, and countless soups, some of which are now frozen waiting to be consumed. It weighed 7.8 Kg or 17.16 lbs. ¡Buen provecho!
“This bus was cleaned today”, states the blue tag hung by the cleaning crew. Just like in Puerto Rico, Miami, and New York. Right!?
In a country like Morocco, where men and women commonly live separate lives, and traditional gender roles are the norm, I had the opportunity to record a men-only and a women-only music band performing in public. The male band played in the grounds of the famous Koutoubia Mosque, the largest one in Marrakesh. The female band played in the Djema el-Fna, a square and market near the Koutoubia Mosque, that dates to the twelve century. Djema el-Fna is a busy center of activity including snake charmers, storytellers, cigarette vendors, fresh juice stands, henna tattoo parlors, perfume sellers, clothing racks, monkey trainers, smoky food stands, hundreds if not thousands of people walking and enjoying the scene, and many musicians. If you have never been to Morocco, Djema el-Fna is one good reason to do visit it. Enjoy the music video and explore the map.
Recently I visited my homeland, Puerto Rico, the proud owner of a very special place called The Walkway of the Presidents. Enjoy the film!
I created this motion graphic animation as part of the development of the film “Shit Happens”. Watch and listen!
On a recent trip to Italy we discovered Lago della Ninfa, or Nymph Lake. A nymph is a mythological spirit of nature imagined as a beautiful maiden inhabiting rivers, lakes, forests, and other natural locations. We found a reincarnation of four nymphs. Watch the video and see the interactive map to locate the lake.
