Crazy Video: Wild Arabic Dancing In Texas

Oct 5th, 2012 at 3:00PM: Arab culture has an image problem. Most outsiders think they don't have any fun. As one acquaintance informed me, "Arabs are a dour lot." He'd never actually hung out with any Arabs. Anyone who has can tell you that they do have a sense of fun, as this video shows. Uploader noxalicious tells us this was filmed in Cafe Layal in Houston, Texas. This guy gets so into the music that he ends up on...

Photo Of The Day: Indonesian Dancers

Photo Of The Day: Indonesian Dancers May 20th, 2012 at 6:00PM: There's a wonderful sense of pattern and repetition in today's photo by Flickr user don.wright. Shot at a dance ceremony in Banda Aceh, the largest city on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, the photo's subjects each carry a unique expression that adds personality and charm. Some break into a bashful smile, some are expressionless, some – like the woman in the center of the frame –...

While this can sometimes be hard to maintain on the road, it isn't impossible. To help you stay in shape while traveling, here are some tips.

We should all dance in front of tourist attractions

Feb 29th, 2012 at 12:00PM: Most people visit tourist attractions to see the sights and say that they've been there. They snap photos of the monuments, pose for a few more shots so that they can prove that they were there and then move on. One clever young lady, however, decided to dance in front of some of the UK and Europe's most famous places. And when Andrea Dighton dances, it's not just glorified running in place....

Rio Carnival 2012: Backstage at the Sambadrome parades

Rio Carnival 2012: Backstage at the Sambadrome parades Feb 22nd, 2012 at 5:30PM: "Follow the feathers" was my strategy for finding the Sambadrome stadium in Brazil this past Sunday, the first evening of Rio Carnival's famed samba parades. The metro exit was packed with crowds moving in all different directions, so I had little choice but to follow the handful of people wearing large, extravagant costumes in front of me. They were obviously going where I needed to go....

Dancing at Denver International Airport

Sep 19th, 2011 at 6:00PM: There are only so many ways to kill time at the airport. You can eat overpriced food, drink overpriced alcohol, read or dance. OK, there might be more things to do at the airport, but for the sake of introducing this video, let's pretend that those are the only options. This young lady was bored at Denver International Airport and decided to cut a rug right there in the terminal. Not to be...

Ten (more) random observations about Ethiopia

Ten (more) random observations about Ethiopia Apr 26th, 2011 at 9:30AM: When writing last year's Ethiopia travel series, I collected twelve random observations about Ethiopia. These were interesting bits of information that didn't fit in any of my articles. While writing my Harar travel series, I collected ten more. 1. The standard traveler's money belt that hangs from your neck and is tucked under your shirt is very amusing to Ethiopians because Oromo women...

VIDEO: Flash mob at Beirut Airport duty free

Mar 14th, 2011 at 9:30AM: Flash mobs are nothing new, Lisbon even staged a dance at the airport in 2009, but this flash mob at Beirut Airport is the first I've seen with Arab Dabke dance. Dabke is a form of line dance which is traditionally performed at weddings and social occasions, and the group here combined it with some hip hop steps.

Photo of the Day (08.16.10)

Photo of the Day (08.16.10) Aug 16th, 2010 at 7:00PM: Whatever happened to boy bands? I guess popular music is cyclical and we're just not in a boy band era right now. I mean, the Jackson 5 were amazing. New Edition was pretty awesome, too. NKOTB (New Kids on the Block, for those not in the know) were pretty horrible but injected life into the slumping light-wash denim industry. The 90s gave us LFO, the Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC and a bottomless...
