nostalgie

Cuba…ck in time

I’m writing these lines in beautifully obsolete and decrepit Havana….So glad to leave it although its charm and sadness will be in my heart forever. I’m a born traveler. It’s in my genes, blood, drive, mentality. I remember having to make presentations in my various classes of geography as a […]

Adieu King Father and Welcome to the New Lunar Year

In Asia, the impossible can always happen, you just have to dream it. Such was my visit to Phnom Penh where I intended to take part to the Farewell to King Father Norodom Sihanouk, but no plan or idea of how this would occur.

Goodbye Toni Negri

This man is old and obviously very ill…perhaps not only mentally actually. I just caught an amazing diatribe he uttered on France Culture’s morning program, Monday May 28th, 2007, in which he actually said “Those who criticize Staline and say he is only a butcher are facists”. The silence (a […]
