  • Tiffany at Winterthur in Delaware

    Until January 3rd, visitors to the Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library in Winterthur, Delaware, have a chance to view a very special exhibition of Tiffany Stained Glass. The Museum, located on the former du Pont estate, about 45 minutes southwest of Philadelphia, is showing Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light, which features selected works by Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933). The exhibition was organized by the Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass in New York City.

  • Grand Central Station in New York City

    On a recent trip to the New York City area I had the pleasure of catching a train at Grand Central Station.  This is a historic building that continues to be used by many commuters, and visited by plenty of tourists.  The building has lots of ramps and elevators, making all trains and platforms accessible for the wheel chair bound individuals.  The trains are also very accessible, and provide much more room than the buses or subways.

  • December in Cuba: The Havana Film Festival

    It is December. Winter is already upon us. Cold fronts cross the Gulf of Mexico and the Florida Straits, and hit Havana’s Malecon, or sea wall, creating an impressive spectacle of breaking waves, crashing against the Malecon and turning into foam…
