Happy Bday USA

I was fortunate to get an invite from my cousin to get up close and personal with a local fireworks show on the 4th. Thousands of  large and powerful explosives firing off all around us at the same time was intense to say the least. And incredibly loud to say the very least! The fuses were hand lit the old-fashioned way by the pyrotechnicians who had to stay very close to the danger to keep the show going. Here are a few shots from the show…

The Altered Self – wallpaper download for 6/18/2012

In one week, after a few more days in Athens and a short stay in Dublin, I’ll will be back on U.S. soil. More than 5 1/2 months of living abroad seems to have stretched out for much longer this time. For me, spending time in a new place (3 months in Spain, 2 months in Croatia) really opened up the opportunity for revelation – not just knowing a city without a map, or learning a few words in the local language, but it’s really the unique and wonderful people that time allows you to connect with. Each and every place continues to show me how we all are inexplicably linked together by so many common threads – and to be there long enough to let these truths naturally unearth (more…)

Photo Essay: Festival of the Bean – Kaštel, Croatia

A broad bean (aka Bob in Croatian) is an ancient ingredient which fed families along the Dalmatian coast and inland for centuries, long before corn was brought there, and recently it was perhaps unfairly forgotten and neglected from daily nutrition. For that reason, this vegetable has a day dedicated to its reintroduction with a modern twist. Perhaps the greatest gourmet event in city of Kaštela, Croatia, the traditional festival of the broad bean – „Fešta o boba“ will give your taste buds something all together different to try.

Each dish is made from a homemade recipe with special preparations and ingredients.

Patiently waiting for the dishes to cook as the teams compete for a variety of symbolic prizes for taste, creativity, and even quantity.
