Les Miserables On Broadway Got Hotter

28 10 2014

raminA note from our correspondent Rich Martino:

If you’re traveling to NYC and planning to see a Broadway show, the choices can be overwhelming. But if you’re a fan of the classic musicals, then you shouldn’t miss the critically acclaimed revival of “Les Miserables”.   The icing on the cake is the Iranian born lead Ramin Karimloo, who proves that beauty and talent can live in the same body.





A Small Mexican Town with a Whole Lotta Ghosts

24 10 2014

smaIn San Miguel de Allende, a small artist colony in Guanajuato, Mexico, the locals celebrate Halloween a little differently. You won’t find any slutty nurses around here. Instead, the Dia de los Muertos is a majestic ode to the dead, an ancient ritual where the pastel-colored town of old churches becomes lush with flowers, art, and costumes to celebrate Halloween. On November 1, locals will share food and visit cemeteries to get in touch with lost souls.

It’s one of the world’s great cities at their creative peak, and one of the best windows into a peaceful region of modern day Mexico.

 

 





On The Ground: I go Greek!

23 10 2014

acropolis museumI recently returned from Athens delighted from my visit to the Acropolis Museum. The beautiful space is only about five years old and already beloved by Athenians and tourists. And for good reason; we found tons of cool tidbits (for example, the interior replica of the parthenon has the exact foot print and orientation as the actual!) and the exhibits are easy to follow and well curated, some even showing a side-by-side comparison of a statue beside an imaged portrait of what it might look like 2,000 years prior. A major surprise and one of Europe’s best museums!

Dennis Hensley: Harboring Secrets in Long Beach

20 10 2014

darkharborOur correspondent Dennis Hensley is back with another hilarious story, this time chronicling his adventures getting lost inside a maze aboard a creepy old boat.

As amusement park Halloween scare-fests go, Dark Harbor at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California, has something that its competitors don’t: one really old, seriously creepy boat.  Two of the attraction’s new-this-year mazes actually happen on the famed luxury and the historic and by all accounts haunted atmosphere just adds to the frightful fun.

Dine Around The World: Authentic Thai Comes to The Big Apple

18 10 2014

paetrioA recent New York Times article about a new, authentic Thai restaurant in Elmhurst, Queens – Paet Rio-  seemed to both harken back to ManAboutWorld’s ‘Dine Around The World’ feature we published in our New York Takeover guide this past Spring, and look ahead to our upcoming Thailand guide. Our idea was to showcase the culinary diversity throughout New York’s five boroughs – the Poles of Greenpoint, the Russians of Brighton Beach, the Koreans of Jackson Heights, and so on – but the news of Elmhurst bursting onto the scene as NYC’s new Thai Town is welcomed news to us.

ManAboutWorld Editor Ziplines in Costa Rica

14 10 2014

FullSizeRenderIn a town known as Jaco in the center of Costa Rica, way up high in the rain forests, I leapt from a bamboo platform and flew high above the bushes and leaves, the trees and butterflies, connected to the thick chord above me by only a small metal clasp. The rain was drizzling down as it did for most of the week I was there, causing the steel chord to be slick and so even faster I sped. When I reached the end, my guide, Camillo, smiled broadly.

“How was that?” he asked.

“Amazing and scary,” I told him.

He laughed.

“You have nine more!”
