Shanghai, China

Nanpu Bridge, Shanghai, China

I thought I’d gotten away with it, the old breaking and entering thing. Up to the moment I saw the fat girl in the mini skirt. I’d just brazened my way past a bored security guard downstairs, hopped an elevator to the 22nd floor and then scurried up the dark stairwell up and onto the roof with […]


Hartford, Connecticut

City Skyline, Hartford, Connecticut

Hartford is certainly a town not lacking in pretension. A city built on stolid insurance premiums grown glossy and sleek on nouveau riche investment swindles. There are grand boulevards…devoid of traffic. Vast public spaces…abandoned. Towering skyscrapers…seemingly vacant. It’s as if the Rapture came and it turned out that God’s chosen were insurance adjusters and derivatives […]

Singapore

Sitting in the spotless white Mercedes taxi, the driver tells me, “Singapore has three seasons. Hot, Hotter and Hottest. This is the middle season.” You could have fooled me. I wander along the waterfront, then into the financial district. Imagine a place populated by the spawn of a captive breeding program mating tax accountants and […]


Shanghai, China

I emerge from the cool if urine-scented underground to sticky streets, wandering along sterile tree-lined streets in the shadow of looming office towers still in various stages of construction. I eventually find my way across (or actually under) eight lanes of traffic and take an elevator up to the tip of the Jin Mao Tower. […]


Casablanca, Morocco

AMCC3.02

I am sitting in the worst cab on earth. Hurtling through pea soup fog at 120 km/hour in a godforsaken gypsy taxi with shot suspension, missing muffler. One lone wiper scrapes the windshield without a blade against the gloom. Pavement is visible rushing past my feet, while my ass sticks halfway through the backseat, and […]
