You’ll be shocked to find out that these average objects, that on any normal day wouldn’t get any attention, are actually handcrafted by a single block of wood. Randall Rosenthal, a New York based artist, takes wood sculpting to the next level. His “Lunch Money” piece, a representation of a cardboard box full of $100 bills, took 6 weeks to carve, and 6 weeks to paint. But his hard work paid off, as the piece sold for an impressive $25,000.

Switzerland In June 2011, we spent a week in Switzerland, flying into Geneva, with an initial stop in Montreux, followed by a picturesque stay in Wengen, located above the Lauterbrunnen valley. The alps provided a stunning backdrop to explore the area. During our stay in Wengen, a small village that is accessible by train or foot, the main sound heard was cow bells. We took day trips and hikes in the Interlaken area of central Switzerland.

This is my most favorite drink. Ever. Maybe I’d feel differently if I drank (as in alcohol), but there is nothing I love more than a warm, breezy afternoon and a pitcher of Brazilian lemonade. I didn’t try it for a long, long time because I was very put off by putting sweetened condensed milk in with citrus fruit. It seemed very wrong. And then I had some at Tucano’s and my life has not been the same since.
