We’re at a beer festival, and the glass is Kenny’s. I’m holding it while I make him take pictures of me, which isn’t exactly his hobby, bless him. And when he’s not taking pictures, he carries the 100 lbs camera, except this time…

When we moved to Kansas City I feared I was going to miss Chicago terribly. And I do, but the benefits of living in a small city are many. One of many is affordable culture, and available seats. I love you Chicago, but you…

First Friday, and first time I was asked to be taken a picture of. My introvert-me hated it, my egomaniac-me loved it. Anyhow, every first Friday of the month in the Crossroads district, art galleries open until late…

If you’re reading this post you probably know that I have an Instagram account. FINALLY! For some stupid reason I have a public blog but hesitate to share it further than with my facebook friends. Thanks to the multiple…

Talking about misleading titles. Kansas is not home, and not because we live in the Missouri part of Kansas City. Yet, everyday we spend here, we’re closer to our Spanish home, which is not an apartment, but our loved ones…

A few Sundays ago we spent the day in Orson Welles hometown. On the menu, Frank’s Diner famous garbage plate: your American breakfast, all mixed up. Genius, and delicious. After brunch, a nostalgic walk by the Southport Beach House, that used to host beach…

Postmodernism is not fond of Westerns, and as a product of my time, I wasn’t either. Until I was forced to at the university, I hadn’t watched a Western in my life. They used to play them at lunchtime on regional tv, and whenever I came across one, I’d quickly…

Our Korean friends took us to Hmart, Chicago’s biggest (and coolest) Korean supermarket, where I tried yummy Korean dumplings, and got tons of Asian snacks. Total happiness…

For some, the Farnsworth House is the culmination of the career of the Bauhaus school director Mies van der Rohe. Architectural minimalism at its best. Less is more. A house in a box, a glass box in the middle of nature. The decoration on the walls are the trees…

Oklahoma Joe’s is a shack. A shack that everyday has a half an hour line of hungry people who want to try their delicious barbecue. Their pulled pork sandwiches are glorious, and the ribs… God. The ribs melt in your mouth. It reminds me of the Planet Terror gas…

Our Easter Sunday happened to be in Kansas City, so I figured we should go visit Jesse James’ farm and birthplace. Guess what: now it’s a museum. I knew he was a Wild West legend, but I had no idea he still was the quintessential Southern hero. The younger…

I haven’t watched tv this Easter and I don’t know if it’s still the same, but I remember as a kid, Easter was “Jesus movie time.” Jesus is undeniably one of the most interesting characters in history, and has shaped it dramatically, like it or not. That’s why, to me, it’s…

I’m standing at the St. Valentine’s Day massacre site, which basically was where Al Capone got rid of his competition. It used to be a warehouse, for some strange reason, nobody wanted the place after that day. Demolished and turned into a parking lot, they say a…
