Dec 10th 2012 11:27AM Welcome to the team Jonathan!
City of God is my favorite film as well. I'm looking forward to hearing your observations on Seoul food culture - I think it's one of the best places in the world to eat!
Oct 31st 2012 5:09PM Welcome to Gadling Allison! I'm very particular about my pillows too - glad it all worked out!
Oct 8th 2012 6:19PM Gomobile, I think that WAS the plan...use the TWA Flight Center as an entrance for JetBlue Terminal 5.
For whatever reason, JetBlue hasn't moved ahead with the plan. I guess it was too expensive. So now it's just sitting there, waiting for someone to put it to good use...
Jun 25th 2012 3:32PM Jessica - definitely thought provoking, although a lot of professional photographers are also doctoring THEIR photos too, right?
As much as we all want to blame Instagram for introducing us all to the silly filters on your shots, they're certainly not the first nor the most powerful. Hipstamatic was been doing this for awhile before Instagram even existed and Adobe Photoshop pretty much does the same thing too, albeit in a incredibly more powerful way than Instagram.
I think Instagram is a bit like the polaroid camera of digital photography, in that it's introducing a whole new range of people to the hobby who would not be doing it otherwise. Some of those people who really love travel photography will ultimately move on to (arguably) more refined forms of taking photos down the line.
My take is that if an app encourages more people to get out there and take photos when traveling, that's a good thing.
Apr 5th 2012 5:26PM Thank you Bill! Really appreciate it.
Apr 3rd 2012 12:12PM Hey Jenna - thanks for the comment! I definitely didn't mean to suggest Bo-Kaap is the present day "heart" of Cape Malay life in the city. I simply wanted to provide some context as to its historic role in the Cape Malay community.
As a Cape Town resident who's more aware of the day-to-day realities of Cape Malays in the city I think you're in a far better position to tell us about the realities of Cape Malay life in the city and it would be great for you to share any thoughts with us here in the comments. I'm sure you have some unique insights.
As I've understood it, Bo-Kaap was historically the neighborhood of Cape Malay residents in the city, though that may be far from the case (or changing quickly) in the present day. It seems obvious that gentrification has hit the area and is the case with many rapidly changing neighborhoods in urban areas around the world, that tends to push out those very residents that have given the areas their unique character.
Thanks again for reading Gadling and definitely share any additional thoughts you have in the comments.
Jan 19th 2012 3:30PM Judith - I hope you're right! I also find it hard to believe a translation could be this bad...and a video could be made so poorly - but anything's possible.
Jan 10th 2012 10:04PM Glad you liked it Jeff! I found the $5 Bandeja Paisa at a local Bogota chain called Sabrosita near Candelaria - good deals can be found if you know where to look.
Jan 7th 2012 2:39PM Vijay - sadly, I think you're right. What was more interesting to me was not the poor treatment, but rather the response to it, which was to set up a business just outside the consulate to make it easier.
Dec 5th 2011 10:45AM Welcome to the team Jessica! I enjoyed Phnom Penh a lot too - I look forward to reading about your experiences there on Gadling.
