ar piercing shrieks and squeals echoed through Peachland’s usually silent swim bay for at least 10 minutes on New Year’s Day. That was roughly the amount of time it took for 200-plus men, women and children to get in and out of the frigid waters of Okanagan Lake.

YOU’RE GOING TO LOVE LIVING HERE.

While the sound of grown ups and children alike wailing like newborns may have acted as a deterrent to passersby contemplating taking part in future polar bear swims, a closer examination of the smiles emerging from the lake illustrated what has made the annual event increasingly popular.

CLOSE-UP

Frigid swim kicks off a new year From A1 “We had record breaking participation this year” said Cheryl Wiebe, the director of community services for the District of Peachland. Last year organizers beat previous registration numbers with a whopping 172 participants—a far cry from the 20 people who showed up for the first swim in 1996—but that record was topped again this year when 218 signed up. And plans are in the works to make it bigger and better in the years ahead. “This would happen with or without us, though,” Wiebe said. “But we’re happy to provide an opportunity for people to have fun in the new year.” While the end result of the event was a lot of people who just had fun, there were varying motivations for taking the plunge into water that was an estimated 4 C. Standing on the shore with his prosthetic leg partially submerged, Tim Fiala, of Red Deer, Alba., was simultaneously actualizing a dream and focusing on a new lease on life. “I dreamt that I was going fishing on Okagardless. nagan Lake on Christmas, Shock was someto catch the Ogopogo,” he thing that registered on said, noting the polar bear all faces, especially those dip was close enough. of the Peachland Fire De“Also, I’m hoping partment volunteers who that this will help me with took the plunge in their my recovery.

FROM LEFT: Participants in this year’s polar bear swim were encouraged to write out

their NewYear’s resolutions and pin them to the resolution tree. Tim Fiala, from Red Deer, Alba., prepares to dip into cold Okanagan Lake with his prosthetic leg. Many participants only went as far as their knees, but with 4 C waters even that felt like a remarkable feat.

Abby Lawrence, 11, just wanted to do something different to start off the new year. Before she got into the water, she was admittedly nervous. But an hour later, after all was said and done, she had a sense of calmness that comes with accomplishment. That said, she won’t be doing it again. For Olivia Sjerven, also 11, a repeat plunge may be in the future. to play. It’s the style She entered the lake with her dad, Dave, who

New Year’s baby to join large family Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

New Year’s Eve will be forever changed in the Caterer-Bohemier household. Their newest addition made sure of that when he made an unexpected debut on Wednesday. A.J.—name behind the initials still under negotiation—a seven-pound, three-ounce bundle arrived at 4:37 a.m. Jan. 1. He was 10 days ahead of schedule and before any other New Year’s baby in the valley. “We knew he was the first baby born in Kelowna, but we didn’t realize he was the first baby in the Okanagan until later,” said Andre, adding that a playful competition between his family and another couple who were also working through

labour was playing out in the early hours of New Year’s day. A competition they handily won, prompting a nurse to shout out, “they did it” when A.J took his first breath. It’s possible that A.J. may have been in a hurry to make a valley-wide first, because when he’s home he’ll be joining a sizeable brood. He’ll have six older siblings to look after him and help him out with all forthcoming firsts. Meantime, however, he and his family will continue to revel in the excitement of being this city’s New Year’s baby. “It’s a bit weird,” admitted Jessica, of all the attention they’ve received. Not only did they get all the normal visits from loved ones in the hours after the birth, they’ve also played host to newspaper and TV crews—a first to the experienced set of par-

California Bighorn sheep attracted to salt on the road Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Rain had fallen overnight, turning Westside Road to a sheet of ice, so salt had been used to melt the ice to help make the road passable. In the middle of the road, just south of Bear Creek Provincial Park, a herd of about a dozen California bighorn sheep were licking the pavement, unconcerned about the fact they were stopping traffic.

Biologist Jeremy Ayotte has studied ungulates’ use of mineral licks in northern B.C. where wild sheep and goats travel from their mountain-top, alpine, homes— down through thick forest—to lick salt from very specific mineral springs and deposits in the valley bottom. He says this made them “easy pickings for wolf packs who often had dens and hunted near such large mineral licks.” All mammals that

eat only plants are sodium-deficient and crave ‘salt,’ he explains, adding that by salt he means sodium chloride, or basic salt. “Plants don’t need sodium, so it’s typically low in plant tissue. Plant-eating mammals, on the other hand, are losing sodium all the time through sweat, tears and blood, and sodium is critical for metabolic processes such as maintaining the right body/fluid volume,” he explained.

“So, if salt is around in unnatural concentrations, such as road salt, these sodium-hungry animals get almost addicted to it,” he

says. Although their behaviour seems bizarre when you see them licking the pavement, it’s actually

Dan Connaughton, General Sales Manager for Kelowna Chrysler Dodge has just announced plans to hold a used car and truck event with used cars and trucks starting at seventyseven dollars and up this Saturday, January 4, 2014. Due to the current market conditions, we have an extra amount of used cars, trucks and lease returns. Now we need to reduce the number of cars and trucks in our used car inventory. During this seventy-seven dollar sale every used car and truck will be sold for hundreds to thousands below the original price.” Connaughton said, “Our customers should find these prices as low as auction prices in many cases.”

so that buyers may inspect the vehicles for one hour before the sale begins at 10:00 am. Whoever is sitting behind the wheel at 10:00 am when the prices are slashed on the windshield will be given first opportunity to purchase the vehicle at the slashed sale price. This innovative approach to selling used vehicles will make it easy and quick for anybody in the market for a good used car or truck at a very low price with no hassle. “We have 3 business managers who will help buyers arrange low-cost financing, as well as bank representatives that will be present. We’ve got over 2 million dollars in used inventory to choose from. Our total inventory will be over 200 used cars and trucks. We want to remind everybody that this is a one-day sale only. When our inventory has been reduced, we will remove the sale prices and return to normal operations. Since we are a local business, we would like to give back to the community,” Connaughton said. “We would rather allow local people to buy these vehicles than wholesale them at an auction.” Any questions can be directed to (250) 763-6121.

Here, every used car and truck is on sale. First come, First serve and no bidding. It’s the perfect opportunity to get a good quality used car at the lowest price possible, including cars for only seventy-seven dollars.

Drive the conditions

To the editor: The argument has again been raised to increase the speed limits on the roads where it is possible to drive at higher rates. This is all well and good, let them drive as fast as the road permits, but if they make one mistake at the new speed, make the fine go up along with the speed. In other words if they wish to drive at that speed let them pay accordingly. These new vehicles cost more and are designed to be driven at well over the speed limit—why I do not know— but if they can afford it, let them pay. Insurance rates should reflect this and, as far as I know, they do. If one is capable of driving at a higher speed, safely, I think that is fine, but if the highway is not capable of sustaining that speed leave the limit as it is or lower it. Following too close is the worst thing that is done on our roads today, usually caused by a speeder or not driving for road conditions. I saw so many accidents of this type during my days with the Motor Vehicle Branch. So, if they do raise the speed limit, let it be at the right place. Driving will be a job and not a pleasure, and we all will be paying for the right to be there. Ron Barnard, West Kelowna

letter of the week

Say hello to 2014–a new chance to start again

A

nd so a new year begins. Like many of you in Readerland, I warmly welcome the New Year of 2014 and quite comfortably say goodbye to 2013. I admit to some silly sensitivity for superstition; which is my alliterative way of saying I avoid saying goodbye to a year until it is officially dead and gone. The fear I suppose is that by saying goodbye to a year before it is technically over that my pontificating may somehow result in an early personal demise. Absurd, I know, but that is what superstitions are about— unjustified paranoia. I digress. I am glad 2013 is now nothing more than largely a miserable memory. Based on numerous conver-

HODGE sations with others, it apPODGE pears that 2013 was not a banner year for many. Even some of my eternally optimistic acquaintances said a fond farewell to the past year. That reality led me to Charlie Hodge contemplating our fixation with New Year’s celebrations, the making of resolutions, and the hope that the flip of a calendar page will somehow change our luck. In reality, that is what New Years is largely about—renewed hope. For most of us, New Years represents a ‘fresh start,’ a new beginning for our dreams, aspirations, secret hopes. It’s a chance to start again, change the landscape of our lives so to speak. It’s akin to the shedding of our skin but from an emotional and perceptive pro-

spective. There is nothing wrong about that sort of desired fate alternator. Believing a certain change of the calendar or shifting of the stars provides us with the one thing we all need to occasionally rely upon—hope. Like a lottery on life, all of us go through phases of good times and bad, and often it seems we have no or little control over events and circumstances. Of course, we really do have a great amount of say in how our lives move forward, back, or not at all. We have the power of choice to deal with (or not deal with) challenges and scenarios placed before us. All of us start and stall only to start again. For many that seems to be a cycle of life. For me, the final month or six weeks of 2013 was fabulous—a breath of fresh air and hope following a long spell of disappointment and frustration.

i The positive end to the year leaves me p optimistic and eager to move into the c g next 360 plus days of life. u My personal resolution to usher in the New Year was to slow down, fi smell the flowers of life, and enjoy be- t ing here. That said, I do chuckle at a few of d the fun predictions, or hopes, I wrote i a publicly in 2013. Watching part of the World Junior t Hockey Championships the past week t k reminded me of one hockey prediction I made that has angered a buddy of mine. Prior to the start of the hock- h ey season I wrote: “In the Western Con- t ference a mid-season knee or groin in- b jury to Roberto Luongo, and discon- i tentment by veteran players with coach i h John Tortorella will see Vancouver stumble to fourth in the Pacific Div- w t See Hodge A7

A Gift in Memory Makes a Difference

▼ HELP OUT

Totalled car a lifeline for mom, son To the editor: I’m writing this message with the hope that someone will help me out. On the night of Dec. 29, or the early morning of Dec. 30, my car was hit by another vehicle while it was parked on the street in front of my home. As my son and I left our home to go to work/ childcare, we noticed that our car was pushed up onto the sidewalk. When we went to the rear of the

car, we noticed the damage. We were shocked. My car had been hit so hard in the back that the rear view mirror on my windshield was hanging. I called a friend for a ride and when I got to work I made all the other appropriate calls (ICBC, RCMP). At that moment, I was upset but not worried. I figured my car would get fixed and all would work out.

Unfortunately, that’s not quite the case. My car is a write-off. I’m heartbroken. ICBC will decide what my car is worth but it won’t reflect its true value. That car was priceless. It was an older car but it allowed me the ability to work three jobs to provide for my son and myself. It allowed me to take my son to school, the pool, and to friends houses. Our car was part of

our independence and our accessibility. I don’t think the person who hit my car really understood the magnitude of his or her decision to drive carelessly that night and leave without taking responsibility. I have pictures of my car as well as a picture of the Chevrolet symbol that was left behind when my car was hit. I’m just hoping that someone knows some-

▼ INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

Ontario MPP denied visa to enter India To the editor: Recently I, an elected Member of the Provincial Parliament in the province of Ontario, have been denied permission to travel to India, permission afforded to citizens around the world each day of the year by the Indian government. Sadly, that approval seems contingent on turning a blind eye to injustice and being complacent to the political misrepresentations of one of

the world’s most powerful economies. Earlier this year I was extremely honoured when I was notified by SEWA cv, a respected non-‐profit organization based in India which is committed to social justice initiatives like ending drug abuse, promoting the equality of women by opposing both the dowry system and female feticide, that I had been selected as Sikh of the Year for 2013. This or-

ganization annually selects a single recipient to be recognized for his or her work in the area of human rights and humanitarian issues. As a proud Canadian of Indian decent, this honour is particularly poignant for me. After over a month of waiting for my entry visa in order to travel to India to receive the honour at an awards ceremony, I was informed my visa appli-

Without Luongo in top form the Canucks will lose out in the first round of the playoffs to Chicago.” Bobby Lou went down with a “lower body injury” two weeks ago, and though scheduled to return later this week there is concern for his knees. While I wish no one harm, I find it amazing that I had a hockey pool buddy blame me for the injury, and received a similar email from another hockey fan suggesting it was somehow my fault that Luongo was hurt. I should be so lucky

to have such influence on the lives of others. If such was truly the case then I would predict my wife or some other close (and loving) relative would win the super lotto. Regardless, based on my apparent newfound powers of prediction I will avoid any further precognitions. There are, however, a couple of events over the next few months that I encourage you to take part in. First and foremost I encourage readers to send in your names for those who deserve community-wide recognition for their service to others. Nominations are now being accepted for the 39th annual Kelowna

Civic Awards. Your effort of submitting a name really can make a difference in deciding who receives the coveted awards. I have chaired the civic awards committee and I assure readers that the public’s nominations are greatly valued and needed by the committee members who volunteer their time. For more information on how to nominate Kelowna residents for an award, check out the information on the City of Kelowna website at www. cityofkelowna.ca.

cation had been denied. To my knowledge, this is the first time an elected official from Canada has been denied an entry visa to India. It is a significant affront to not only myself but also to our nation, an affront compounded by the fact that the denial is without explanation… For any democratically elected official of a G8 nation to be denied an entrance visa by a country calling itself the world’s largest democracy is an outrage. What kind of message does this denial send to Canadians? What does this say about the Government of India’s view of Canadians and our Canadian democratic system? And finally, what

international implications does this action have? This is not a partisan issue—this is a Canadian and global issue. India purports to be a great friend of Canada. Today, through the act of exclusion, it is my belief that relationship is now in question and the international community must defend Canada’s place as a country whose law-‐abiding citizens are welcomed by the world.

Property values slip for the Okanagan Tom Fletcher CONTRIBUTOR

Property assessments are up slightly across most of B.C., with dips in average residential values in the Okanagan and on Vancouver Island. The biggest increases were in the Northwest and Peace River regions, where total residential value rose about 10 per cent as natural gas and other industrial development picks up speed. The B.C. Assessment Authority released its 2014 property assessment

rolls Thursday, showing continued slight growth in total property values in most regions of B.C. The value of all property in B.C. rose 1.27 per cent. Penticton region residential property is down 0.94 per cent, with a similar dip in farm value. Kelowna also had about a one per cent drop in farm value, with residential value steady compared to 2013. The Vernon region saw a 1.57 per cent drop in residential value and a 1.95 per cent dip in farm

In the Lower Mainland, most residential values showed modest increases, from almost flat on the North Shore to 1.61 per cent in Vancouver, 0.68 in North Fraser, 1.98 per cent in Surrey-White Rock and 1.53 per cent in the Fraser Valley. Richmond-Delta recorded the only decline in the region, with residential total value down 0.15 per cent. In southern Vancouver Island, total residential property value fell 2.69 per cent, with similar de-

creases for recreational and farm property. Business property is up 3.89, and major industrial property jumped 17.45 per cent. Residential property value was up 1.21 per cent in the Nelson-Trail region, up 1.31 per cent in the East Kootenay and up 0.76 per cent in the Kamloops region. Residential value held steady in the Cariboo, with declines recorded in industrial, farm and forest land. The largest moves in

the 2014 assessment roll were for managed forest land, which showed a jump of 15.3 per cent in the Fraser Valley and drops of 10 per cent or more in other regions. Rod Bealing, executive director of the Private Forest Landowners Association, said the value reflects fluctuations in the price of logs, with property value lagging the timber market by several years.

Golden Christmas for T’Birds’ captain Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

As she returns to her role as captain of the UBC Thunderbirds this weekend, Christi Capozzi will be firmly focused on the remainder of the Canada West women’s hockey season. But for a few days over the Christmas holidays, the 22-year-old from Kelowna had a chance to savour her first medal in international competition. Capozzi and her Canadian teammates dominated from start to finish at the World University Games in Trentino, Italy to secure the gold medal in women’s hockey. “It was an amazing experience, I was so thankful to be given the opportunity to represent my university and my country,” said Capozzi. “I was so excited to be able to go to

Italy, to travel to another country…to win the gold medal for Canada was really a nice bonus.” Capozzi and the Canadians steamrolled through the tournament, outscoring their opponents 77-2, including 5-0 over the Russians in the gold medal final on Dec. 20. Despite the ease with which they won the championship, Capozzi said it did nothing to detract from the thrill of winning a world title. “In my opinion it didn’t matter because we just went out there and played to the level we were capable of, and the other teams couldn’t match it,” she said. “We showcased our best players and we should be proud of that. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity.” Capozzi, who is of

Italian heritage, also enjoyed her experiences away from the rink during the tournament. “I drank a lot of coffee and ate a lot of pizza,” laughed Capozzi, who was provided with much needed financial assistance for the trip by Grant Cobb, Gail Plecash and Pioneer Coffee. “The team bus driver called me ‘Italian girl’ so that was kind of cool, too. It was a really fun experience.” In her fifth and final year of university hockey, Capozzi’s attention is now back on the Canada West season with the goal of leading the T’Birds to their second straight conference title. UBC (12-3-1) is in a good position in top spot in Canada West but Capozzi knows there’s plenty of work to be done and obstacles in the way. “The league is super

now, so hopefully we can keep it up and take another shot at the title.” Two other Kelowna

products, Sarah Casorso and Stephanie Schaupmeyer, are teammates of Capozzi’s with the

Thunderbirds. This Friday and Saturday, UBC visits the Calgary Dinos.

▼ MIDGET HOCKEY

Strong Mac’s tourney for Okanagan Rockets The Okanagan Rockets more than held their own against some of the world’s best midget teams before going down to defeat in the semifinals of the Mac’s Midget Tournament this week in Calgary. The Rockets, who made the playoffs for the first in their history at the 25-team international tourney, were beaten 5-1 by the powerhouse Finnish U17 national team in the semifinal round on Wednesday.

Still, the Rockets threw a scare into the Finns and were tied 1-1 midway through the final period. But Okanagan ran into some penalty trouble in the late going as the Finns put the game away on the power play and with an empty netter. The class of the tournament, the Finns— who outscored their opponents 62-11 over seven games—won the gold medal with a 7-1 win over the Swiss.

“We knew we had to make some adjustments from a tactical standpoint,” said Rockets’ head coach Mack O’Rourke. “We figured our club could skate with them and pressure them, make them uncomfortable. For 50 minutes it was mission accomplished, unfortunately for us we ran into some penalty trouble and they capitalized.” The Rockets posted a 2-0-2 record in the round robin to make the playoffs at Mac’s for the

first time in team history. The two tie games came against two of Western Canada’s top midget programs—3-3 against the Red Deer Optimist Chiefs and 5-5 against the Notre Dame Argos. In the quarterfinals, the Rockets downed South Side Athletic Club from Edmonton 5-4. “It would be an understatement to say I’m proud of these guys,” said Rockets general manager David Michaud. “We had a single loss in six

games against some of the best midget teams in the world. I’m very proud of what we were able to accomplish here this week.  Hopefully this will be a big stepping stone for our program.” The Rockets, who lead the BCMML standings, will have a little down time before returning to the ice Jan. 8 for the start of the Kelowna International Elite Midget Tournament.

Rockets’ Merkley turns heads at U17 championship During the first half of the Western Hockey League season, Kelowna Rockets fans have become used to seeing special plays out of 16-year-old forward Nick Merkley. The Rockets first round bantam draft pick in 2012 sits seventh in Rockets team scoring with 28 points in 33 games to start the season. His vision, competitiveness and drive have been on display since the Calgary native made his debut in last year’s playoffs as a 15-year-old. So it comes as no surprise that the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Merkley is showing the same flash as a member of Team Pacific this week at the 2014 World Under-17 Challenge in Cape Breton, New Brunswick. International Scouting Services has selected three players from each of the six teams competing in the tournament as future players to watch and Merkley wasn’t left out of the rankings. He has been one of Team Pacific’s top three

players according to the ISS, which had this to say about the dynamic forward: “productive twoway forward…creates scoring opportunities… excellent work ethic… great edge use…anticipates the play…plays in all situations.” In the first three games of the tournament, Merkley scored a goal and two assists for Team Pacific. Fellow Kelowna Rockets rookie Joe Gatenby is also on Team Pacific, while Rockets assistant coach Dan Lambert is the head coach of Team West. The World Under-17 Challenge continues though Saturday, Jan. 4 when the medal games will be played.

In a Sunday matinee, the Warriors will host the Nanaimo Clippers at 2:30 p.m. The Warriors defeated Penticton twice before the Christmas break, then took down Trail 4-3 in overtime on Monday night. At 21-12-1-2 West Kelowna is third in the Interior Division, two points back of Vernon and one ahead of the fourth-place Salmon Arm Silverbacks.

CHIEFS IN ACTION…

The Okanagan Div-

ision-leading Kelowna Chiefs open up 2014 on home ice when they take on the Grand Forks Border Bruins Saturday at Rutland Arena. Face off is 7 p.m. The following weekend, Jan. 10 and 11, the Chiefs are on the road at Beaver Valley and Castlegar. The Chiefs, who won their last three games prior to the holiday break, are 23-9-0-3, six points ahead of second place Osoyoos in the Okanagan Division.

▼ KMBA ACADEMY

Kelowna becoming known for basketball Basketball hasn’t always been a popular sport in Kelowna. Traditionally, Kelowna has been known as a hockey dom-

inant town. However, with the help of Kelowna Minor Basketball, Junior Heat basketball and the success of the UBCO women’s

and men’s programs Kelowna has become a force to be reckoned with on the court. The region is fast becoming a “hot bed of basketball” with several Okanagan high school teams winning provincial championships in 20122013. The Kelowna Minor Basketball Association (KMBA) has grown in leaps and bounds, setting records in all age categories both in the Steve Nash and Legends leagues with now over 2,000 players participating under the umbrella of KMBA. The new athlete development program but familiar family name called Gini Basketball is being run by former

CIS player, Andrew Gini, who possesses both a degree in kinesiology and one in business. Most are familiar with his father, Dino Gini, and his involvement in KMBA, Immaculata High School, and the UBCO Heat. Andrew is carrying that same passion, and is motivated to watch the kids he develops continue to love the game and reach the next level of one day playing for the Heat programs. “The most satisfying part of what I do is first building a relationship with not only the player but the family and helping them understand what they require to get better and be better,” said Andrew Gini. “Build-

ing confidence and giving them the best opportunity at competing and succeeding as an athlete and person is of utmost importance.” This New Year brings the first ever KMBA Basketball Academy. Gini Basketball will work with KMBA helping to provide as many mentors for the youth basketball players. A number of UBCO players will be helping out with the Academy. Andrew Gini, Dave Mackay, Landry Ndayitwayeko, Ed Dane Medi, Olivia Johnson, Dario Gini, Dino Gini and Doug Sperling will be among the coaches in the KMBA Basketball Academy. “Our players will have the opportunity to compete in the rep programs with KMBA and Junior Heat,” added Gini. “I want the community to work together for the kids and for the future of their kids, it’s all about the youth and what we can pass on to them to pass on to their kids.” The Youth Basketball Training Academy will begin Jan. 19 and will take place at both Immaculata and St. Josephs. The program will run Sundays from 3:15 to 4:45 p.m. for Grades 4 and 5, 5:15 to 6:45 p.m. for Grades 6 and 7. For those that do not fall in the Grades 4 to 7 age range there are other options for individual and group training. For info on programs for other grades and details regarding the KMBA Academy visit www.ginibasketball.com. Registration for the KMBA Legends league can be completed on the KMBA website.

2014 Land Rover: Range Rover Sport V6 Supercharged

CONTRIBUTED

Drives-U -Crazy

Range Rover: Top shelf ride After seeing many old Range Rovers around navigating the back roads and how bulky and cumbersome they look as they spin out rocks attempting a hill climb or how the passengers seem to be bouncing around uncontrollably on what appears to be a very basic interior, I found myself thinking there must be some kind of special group of people that are attracted to this vehicle. Fast forward to today’s version of the Range Rover and you will find an outstanding front end that is easily recognized with the signature grille and projector style headlights. The trend-setting side vents on the front fenders is now found on other vehicles and copied by the aftermarket. The large rear glass panels that extend up into the roof line make the overall appearance very clean looking and unique. The engine is a 510 horsepower, supercharged 5.0 litre V8 that puts out

461 lb-ft of torque @2500 RPM with a six-speed automatic transmission. This transmission features Command Shift that actively responds to your driving habits and road conditions by reconfiguring the shift patterns for optimum driveability in all situations and is mated with a two- speed electronically controlled transfer case. Four wheel electronic traction control, hill descent control, and four corner air suspension with terrain response not only makes this vehicle maneuver well on the road but can take you on some of the roughest back roads British Columbia has to offer. The terrain response system gives the Range Rover outstanding off-road capabilities, it adapts the response of the vehicles engine, transmission, centre coupling and chassis system to the terrain you’re driving on. It also maintains driver comfort as well as maximizes traction. Terrain response works continuously,

I went 100 feet under an Arizona hillside to see a retired bit of doomsday and stayed the night 51 stories above Tokyo looking at a neon red knockoff of the Eiffel Tower. I took a walking tour combining plate tectonics and the history of democracy in Iceland, andM I watched a sometimest deadly new type of super-T fast yacht race in SanE Francisco Bay. I broiled in the Sonoran Desert and shivered in the Scottish Highlands. For most of the past 12 months, I’ve been on the move, still discovering new places and renewing love affairs with old ones. . Most intriguing and beautiful place: Thingvellir, Iceland. No place on earth has as much geological and political significance packed into one spot. Icelandic clans founded Europe’s oldest parliament, the Althing, at Thingvellir, in 930. The site was chosen for the deep crevice that limited entry, preventing attacks. It also naturally amplified speeches. Much later, scientists found it was the only spot above water where the geologic plates dividing the American and Eurasian continents can be seen. It’s what gives Iceland all its waterspouts (the word “geyser” comes from here), bubbling hot springs, earthquakes and volcanoes. It’s the “other side” of the San Andreas Fault. A path leads down the crevice, where both sides See Best/Worst A17

TRAVEL city. It pulsates at twilight with thousands of commuters spilling out of the train station, across the tic-tac-toe lined plaza of crosswalks and up into the shopping and nightlife boulevards. Above it all are the massive video screens that play commercials to tens of thousands every minute. I find crowds are rarely fun, but in Shibuya, it is part of the ride. Best city outside the U.S.: Glasgow, Scotland. I have been to Scotland a half dozen times, but skipped Glasgow thinking it would be too big, too grimy.

Worst hotel room: Room 33, Hotel des Grand Hommes, Paris. I was traveling with a colleague and after seeing this room, gave him mine—the “best hotel room” of the year (above). Room 33 was small, dark and stuffy. One flight up, workers were hammering and cursing in several languages. Turned out the hotel was doing a floorby-floor remodel and didn’t want to close while doing it. Out my window

was a hotel whose owners had gone the other way— shut down while renovating. Workers smashed out glass windows and used saws on metal from early morning to midafternoon. I had to keep my window closed and drapes drawn unless I wanted to inhale powdery white particulate and have 10 workers looking into my room from 20 feet away.

into Vatican City, we were stuck looking over the heads of tens of thousands of people. Once again, a stranger intervened. A Catholic priest from Vietnam, over hearing we were from America, hoisted us (and about two dozen others) into the empty bowl of the fountain designed by Bernini in 1675. The 338-year-old perch gave us a good view as Benedict entered the square and gave his farewell speech under the Loggia of the Blessings, with its depiction of Jesus giving the keys of the Church to St. Peter. Monarchs and popes have the pageantry thing down pat.

There’s even a peek-a-boo look at the great building through the French doors in the bathroom. It was the kind of picture postcard hotel

The time gave me a chance to explore a rare Victorian-era Northern European city that hadn’t been heavily damaged by World War II. The granite and marble downtown was a counterpoint to the greens of the Botanical Gardens and the Kibble Palace glasshouse. There were secondhand bookshops like Voltaire and Rousseau down the west side alleys to explore. Afterward, I could read over a pot of Earl Grey and a plate of scones at the restored Willow tea room on Sauchiehall Street, designed in 1904 by Glasgow’s most famous archi-
