A three stars resort with five stars service

Brisas Los Galeones is an intimate, adults-only all-inclusive resort set on top of a hill, overlooking the Carribean Sea and Sierra Maestra Mountains (two hours drive from Santiago de Cuba).

Thousands of people lined up the streets enjoying the parade: marching bands, floats, mascots, Irish music and dancing.

The photo of Tibetan prayer flags was taken in 2010 during my trip to Tibet. It was exhibited in a couple of Toronto art galleries, printed in photography magazines, as well being “stolen” and posted online, on social media and spiritual websites. Now the photo is being displayed at Toronto Pearson International Airport, following the Fujifilm “Life Captured” contest.

“Bad weather always looks worse through a window.”

The Harbourfront area on the shores of Lake Ontario offers an escape from the busy city of Toronto, a transition between city and nature, between skyscrapers and Lake Ontario. A pretty deserted area during a  winter storm…
