52 Places to Go in 2016
When Pope Francis visits Mexico City next month, he will draw the faithful from around the country. The Mexican capital, though, is attracting pilgrims of another kind: travelers seeking some of the world’s best cuisine, museums and forward-thinking design. With young people from around Latin America and Spain streaming into the city, and the Mexican peso hitting record lows against the dollar, the city — daunting and endless as it is — radiates energy. Certainly, there is no more exciting place to eat. Enrique Olvera, who reinvented Mexican cuisine at Pujol, has inspired a generation of restaurants in his wake; recent openings include Fonda Fina in La Roma and Fonda Mayora in nearby Condesa. Design fans can work up an appetite shopping for products by studios like David Pompa and Lagos del Mundo or for designs by Carla Fernández. But getting to know the city means diving into its colonias.

Subscribe for the first time at a discount. Few have savaged lecturers as brutally as the the Enlightenment-era printmaker William Hogarth. In Scholars at a Lecture, the presenter reads from his prepared text, his eyes down, indifferent to his audience. The budding academics are no more impressive; those in thrall to the lecturer’s nonsense have slack faces with lolling eyes and open mouths. The others don’t offer any critique but yawn, doze, or chat idly among themselves.

The Ultimate West Coast Road Trip - Outdoor Project The landscape of the U.S. West Coast between Seattle and Los Angeles is some of the most beautiful in the world. It has the volcanoes of the Cascade Range, high deserts, ancient redwood forests, steep, forested coastlines, massive river basins, untamed wildlife, and the ebullient pioneer spirit of the west. The full glory of the Pacific Ocean states is on display when you travel from the West Coast from top to bottom, but you have to make the effort to see it. It takes a healthy two days on Interstate 5 to cover the 1,100 miles between Seattle and Los Angeles - one day for those in a huge rush. But if you slow down and skip the major highway route, everything changes.
