I ticked off another destination on my bucket list and, in retrospect, am finding it hard to determine which vacation I loved more: the South African Safari http://singita.com/ or a recent trip to the Galapagos Islands.

" On the way to Tilcara and Humahuaca, the landscape is unreal, the color tones of the earth, and the huge mountains, are all overwhelming"

These two teenagers fighting were so amazingly close you could hear their tusks clanking

Aperitif on the beach at sunset, in Grand Cayman, is priceless

"Positano, like Capri is more of a way of life than a tourist destination.  La Marina Grande is the small main beach."

Rafting in the Rio Paquare, Costa Rica was an exhilirating, heart thumping experience

Dinner de Chasse et de Chefs

By: Robert Buxbaum

A few nights ago, 25-30 of NY's most prominent, important and, dare I say, lucky chefs enjoyed what I hear was a spectacular game dinner replete with that hiding under one's napkin while eating unmentionable flying oiseaux. Conversation, one would suspect, must have been stimulating, but if I've correctly heard that one skinny ass chef replied to a mention of my name by calling me a hero, I'd guess otherwise. In the meantime, most of us are going to have to settle for finding some Scottish grouse, or perhaps even some woodcock on a menu this winter, but we can drool over this.
