Killing 10 hours at Mumbai Airport


06 January 2013

When I checked in at the Delta desk in Minneapolis airport yesterday morning, the woman at the counter pointed out that I’ve made a foolish mistake.  I neglected to remember that, though Nepal allows you to purchase a tourist visa in the airport, India requires to to apply for one weeks in advance.  In order to make the most of my 10 hour layover in Mumbai, I had reserved a room at a nearby hotel so I could shower & sleep.  Alas, leaving the airport would require at least a Transit Visa.  Instead of getting some sleep, I find myself with 10 hours to kill in the International Terminal of Chhatrapati Shivaji Airport (BOM).

I’ve heard horror stories of visa-less travelers being forced to spend hours sitting in stark waiting rooms until their connecting flight is ready to depart, but my experience transiting through the then-new airport in…

Making Sense of Macau

The World is Our District

I had never heard of Macau until I went there. A few years ago I was traveling Asia with my friend, Angela, and she had suggested Macau which was supposed to be the “Vegas of the East.” Sold.Macau Wynn

Lisboa CasinoWe had been staying in Hong Kong for a couple days and planned to take the hour and a half ferry over to Macau for the night. When we got settled into our hotel room we naturally decided to go for a walk and check it all out.

Turns out, it’s the biggest confluence of culture I’ve really ever seen on a little island.

It is indeed like an Asian Vegas. 33 casinos in total, there is a Wynn, MGM Grand, Venetian, and Sands, which are all as glamorous and overflowing with money as those in the states. There are also many independent casinos like the Grand Lisboa—which have an addition that…

Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art Doha

The work of Ahmed Cherkaouki, showing at the Arab Museum of Modern Art showed a strong relationship to the current set of work I am working on. I found his work had a strong link to the work of Miro, a spanish artist. With Miro being spanish and Cherkaouki being Moroccan, their inspiration came from a similar culture. Cherkaouki’s work looks at symbols that are found in traditional weaving, tattoos, jewellery and henna. His work has a geometric element to it. His work has a multi – cultural meaning.

The Land of Beautiful Horses

WanderLove- A Solo Female Travel Blog

That’s what ‘Cappadocia’ or ‘Kapadokya’ if we’re talking Turkish, literally means. I’m not really sure why, but horses aside, it’s certainly a beautiful place.

Cappadocia hasn’t been exactly all I had planned on, but I’ve enjoyed it nonetheless. We arrived early a few days ago and were greeted with very foggy conditions, but the weather was still nice enough to visit the Goreme open air museum, an impressive group of caves which were inhabited by early Christians, and thus their frescoes churches remain. I’ve seen a lot if old frescoes and churches in the last few months, but I can definitely recommend Goreme’s museum, if only for the sher experience of imagining these early Christians carrying out their rituals inside the caves.

Yesterday we took what’s known around here as the ‘green tour’, a full on day that sees you visit a panorama, an underground city, take a short hike…

From the Mountains


I wasn’t able to import all my photos from Multiply during the Christmas break but here are some of the happy memories from the time in my life when I would climb mountains almost every weekend with friends.

I used my LCA+ and Fish Eye with Velvia and Sepia films for these photos.
