A Day in Wadi Rum, Jordan

It feels like 2018 is finally getting started and we couldn't resist sharing our second video of Jordan. This time, we're in the desert of Wadi Rum, a magical place that reminds you how vast and beautiful is this world. The desert possesses an energetic pull that brings down all social constructs and invites you to surrender to the infinite layers of sand softly placed by the wind. We let ourselves be seduced by the desert. We loved Wadi Rum. More photos:

I’ve been living in Mexico for 2 years, and I had many occasions to taste the delicious Mexican specialties Mexicans are so proud of. But I have to admit that I am a true Asian cuisine fan, and I rapidly started having cravings for nice Japanese food.

A graceful middle-aged woman with a straight back and bohemian blouse descends the stairs at El Amate Bio-Disciplinary Center in Tepoztlan.
