Free camping in Antigua Guatemala. It felt like we were back in Europe, or at least not in Guatemala anymore.

Free camping in Antigua Guatemala

We were driving through colorful cobble stone streets, where no building climbed above two floors. The only thing that did seem similar to the other towns in Guatemala were the crazy tuktuks, chicken busses and market stalls. We drove straight to the site of the tourism police, where we were allowed to camp for free. Not just for one night, but for five nights! We were amazed by the friendly police who offered their big field for vans and had an open roof for the tents or hammocks. The next day, after getting a delicious espresso from Chloé at their van, we started exploring the city.

Our favorite restaurant was Rainbow Cafe, where we spent quite some time. Two days later after having our laundry done, exploring the market and updating our website, it felt like it was time to continue our journey towards lake Atitlan.

Why can’t we talk to the animals?

Here, Ben Ambridge describes one theory of why our pets don’t talk back. A sulky-looking chimpanzee As a child, I suffered from a mild obsession with the film Doctor Dolittle (think Rex Harrison, not Eddie Murphy). At the heart of this obsession was a nagging question: Why couldn’t this be real? After all, most dogs and cats understand their own names and at least a couple of simple commands. Fast forward a quarter of a century to 2012 and I’m in Manchester anticipating a public lecture by Michael Tomasello, a developmental psychologist at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig. Previously it was thought that the magical ability which non-human species lack is the understanding that words can be put together in different orders to express different meanings.

Easy roll hem. Next up in the Tips + Tricks series is the easy roll hem. I usually get at least one request for a tutorial every time I post a photo of a rolled hem so I thought I should get on this one.

"Wiped Off The Map" - The Rumor of the Century

According to legend, Iran’s President has threatened to destroy Israel, or, to quote the misquote, “Israel must be wiped off the map”. Contrary to popular belief, this statement was never made, as the following article will prove. On Tuesday, October 25th, 2005 at the Ministry of Interior conference hall in Tehran, newly elected Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad delivered a speech at a program, reportedly attended by thousands, titled “The World Without Zionism”. Large posters surrounding him displayed this title prominently in English, obviously for the benefit of the international press. Below the poster’s title was a slick graphic depicting an hour glass containing planet Earth at its top. Before we get to the infamous remark, it’s important to note that the “quote” in question was itself a quote— they are the words of the late Ayatollah Khomeini, the father of the Islamic Revolution.

Casualties of War - Putting American Casualties in Perspective

While America is considered to be the most militarily powerful country in the world today, Americans as a whole have never experienced war in the way that many other countries of the world have.

If you are one of the many adult ballet students around the world, you have probably been asked the question "Why? " with the implied or spoken questions of age, utility, safety, use of time/money, you name it.

But they can also be misused—for tax evasion, money laundering, sanctions-busting or terrorism. One reason for their ubiquity is an American-led push against money laundering.
