Dr. Death in Lisbon – Animal Inside Out!

I had the opportunity to pay Gunther Von Hagen’s ‘Body worlds 2, 3 and 4th’ shows in Lisbon, New York, and Los Angeles, respectively. However, this time around, I went to his latest exhibition in Lisbon named ‘Animal Inside Out’. It features more than 100 plastinates of animals divided into six different categories showcasing the…

Anthony Bourdain dead at 61!

I just received this shit news less than two hours ago. I am speechless because I had the pleasure to meet Anthony on a few occasions on his “No Reservations” before he later went on to work with CNN. Most notably his Lisbon/ Ericeira trip. He was a character, a real New York “bad boy”…

Agriculture fair near Santarém, Portugal!

I arrived at about 14:30 today at the fair. It was very difficult to find a parking space nearby though. It costs 7 euros per person to get in, which is very cheap considering everything going on and the cleanliness. I went there because I got a huge interest in making liquors and now I…

The Pope visits Portugal and I was there…

Although, I am not Catholic and do admire Pope Francis and do acknowledge he is by far one of the most popular ‘world leaders.’   Of Course, I was going to make the short drive up to participate in one of Portugal’s biggest religious events. His stay may be brief but of great importance, as he…

London Tribute show to Michael Jackson

I am not going to discuss the private life of Michael Jackson because I did not know him personally and I do not subscribe to tabloid gossip. However, we did have some friends in common. They were very close to him professionally, and they never saw the “monster” which the media has portrayed, and I take…
