Book Review of the Week: A Journey into Michelangelo's Rome

One word: Michelangelo. You're already thinking, aren't you, about all of his famous works of art? I think of his great, great impact on the world, and just stand in awe of his talent. I recently read a new book about Michelangelo, by our very own Italy Editor, Angela Nickerson.

Can I Come With You? Social Documentary Photography

We all love to travel. Most of us take photos as we travel.  Some of us even try to help out, somehow, when we travel. However, we can always do more of the above, can't we? I've recently devoured a new book that highlights the magnificent, painful, poignant, and human side of traveling with your eyes and ears open.  The book? Can I Come With You?

Terlena: Breaking of a Nation

Documentary films often show us the real story behind what we think we know. As an educational tool, they are incredible. As a window into another life, they are critical to humanity.

We recently went to the Michigan Renaissance Festival. Have you ever been to a Renaissance Festival? If you haven't, it is so much fun. If you haven't, it will be super duper duper fun. Here are some photos that my mom took. I will tell you about each one.

Here is a kids ride, I thought the dragon was cool. It looks spinny (that's a joke).
