Welcome Aboard Dear Esteemed Customers,

W

የተከበራችሁ መንገደኞቻችን፣

elcome Aboard! I would like to wish you a happy New Year and holiday season. In Ethiopia, we celebrate Ethiopian Christmas on January 7 and another holiday called Timket or Epiphany on January 19. I invite you to plan to join us in Ethiopia for this holiday season one year and experience the unique and colorful three-day festival. In particular, the Epiphany celebrations at the ancient castles of Gondar and Lalibela, in northern Ethiopia, are a must-see and will give you a glimpse into the rich and ancient culture of our country. Indeed, the entire continent of Africa holds cultural treasures that have yet to be fully known and that deserve at least one visit. As your Pan-African carrier, we will be there with our extensive international network, which now includes Niamey in Niger as well as Singapore, and our state-of-the art aircraft will cater for your travel needs in the discovery of Africa’s riches. We continue to celebrate many milestones as we constantly enhance our products and services to give you the best possible travel experience. In November 2013, we became the proud owner of one of the most advanced commercial airplanes – the B777-300ER (Extended Range) – the biggest of our fleet yet with a 400-seat capacity. Always maintaining our aviation technology leadership in Africa, we became the first African airline to fly scheduled services with this aircraft, which will give you added comfort on our dense, long-haul routes to China and the Americas. The addition of Singapore — one of the major global aviation hubs and a preferred gateway to Asia and Australia — will give the important African Diaspora community in Australia convenient access to the continent thanks to our code-share partnership with fellow Star Alliance member Singapore Airlines. In the months ahead, we will continue to bring Africa together and closer to the world by opening new and exciting destinations. We plan to start services to Tokyo, Shanghai and Manila, just to name a few. We have also finalized the second phase of the expansion of our Business Class (Cloud 9) lounge at our main hub in Addis Ababa, enhancing ground service to our premium passengers. We have many great things in store, as we continually work to enhance our hallmark and uniquely African-flavored Ethiopian hospitality both on ground and on-board. We know you have many choices. We thank you for choosing to fly with us. Enjoy your flight!

FIRST BOEING 777-300ER

Ethiopian Airlines recently added to its continually expanding fleet with its first Boeing 777-300ER (extended range) jet. The aircraft — to be deployed on long-haul nonstop routes from Addis Ababa to the United States and China — will provide “exceptional range capability and fuel efficiency,” says Mesfin Tassew, chief operation officer for Ethiopian. The 777-300ER seats nearly 400 passengers and can fly up to 14,490 nautical kilometers (7,825 nautical miles). It is equipped with the world’s most powerful commercial jet engine and features wider seats and aisles, as well as more headroom. “For more than half a century, Ethiopian has been at the forefront of providing its passengers with the most innovative products,” says Van Rex Gallard, Boeing’s vice president of commercial airplane sales for Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. “The 777-300ER continues this tradition and represents another significant milestone in the long history between both our companies.” The carrier’s partnership with Boeing stretches back over six decades, with a current fleet of nearly 50 Boeing airplanes: NextGeneration 737s, 757s, 767s, 777s and 787 Dreamliners, as well as a cargo fleet that includes 757s, an MD11 and 777 Freighters. In future months, an additional three 777-300ERs will join this impressive fleet, providing even more options for new and existing routes across Africa and beyond.

PROVIDING QUALITY PRODUCTS TO THE AEROSPACE INDUSTRY Ethiopian Airlines and Boeing recently announced an agreement to double wire harness production at the airline’s Wire Harness Facility, which supplies seat-to-seat wire harnesses for all Boeing commercial airplane programs. The companies’ joint announcement will not only double the facility’s production by the end of 2014 but also enable Ethiopian to manufacture more varied and complex wire harnesses — expanding its value as an aerospace supplier. The agreement, says Tewolde GebreMariam, Ethiopian Airlines chief executive officer, is “a concrete testament that Ethiopian is no longer just an airline but is transforming itself into an aviation service provider of quality products, utilizing the latest technology.” In 2012, Boeing recognized Ethiopian Airlines Wire Harness facility for its outstanding performance, and it received a gold rating in Boeing’s Performance Excellence Awards — the highest rating a Boeing supplier can achieve.

NOTEWORTHY

Ethiopian also announces several recent awards: “ African Airline of the Year,” “Best Cabin Crew in Africa” and “Best Airport in East Africa” (for Addis Ababa Bole International Airport) from the Pan-African Award Committee of travel professionals and journalists. “ Professional Excellence Award” to CEO Tewolde GebreMariam from Planet Africa — commemorating those leaders who bring about a visible difference in the lives of people of African heritage globally.

A HELPING HAND FOR HEALTHY HEARTS For more than seven years, Ethiopian has partnered with the Children’s Heart Fund of Ethiopia to provide life-saving operations for children with heart disease. Prior to the launch of the cardiac center at Addis Ababa’s Black Lion Hospital in February 2009, hundreds of children with heart conditions had to travel abroad to receive medical care. At the time, Ethiopian provided free air transportation for those children to travel to the United States, Israel, India and Thailand for surgery. After the establishment of the cardiac center, Ethiopian began offering free air transportation to volunteer medical professionals who come from different parts of the world to perform surgery in Ethiopia. Ethiopian also supports the cardiac center by offering free shipment of medical equipment and life-support systems. Since its 2006 partnership with Children’s Heart Fund of Ethiopia, the airline has helped enable quality medical care for more than 1,500 children.

Ethiopian celebrated 55 years of service to Frankfurt and 40 years to China at the close of 2013. Frankfurt — the airline’s first European destination — currently serves as its main hub for European operations. Ethiopian was the first African airline and the fourth globally to fly to China, and it now sends 28 weekly flights to four Chinese cities.

Around Addis

COMPARING HOLIDAYS If you’re new to visiting Addis, you’ve likely noticed a difference in when (and how) certain celebrations take place. To clarify any confusion, follow along for our basic introduction to Ethiopian Orthodox holidays — and let the year’s festivities begin!

TIMKET

FASIKA

ENKUTATASH

MESKEL

Epiphany | January 19

Easter | April 20

New Year | September 11

September 27

Though Christmas is not the primary Christian holiday in Ethiopia, Genna is yet full of festive spirit. Early in the morning, thousands of families dress in traditional brightwhite garments and head to their local church for a liturgical service. Then, during the afternoon, people feast together and play a traditional game (also called genna) that resembles field hockey. According to legend, the sport got its start when the shepherds who heard of Christ’s birth spontaneously picked up their staffs and began to joyously play.

One of the most prominent events in the Ethiopian calendar, Timket celebrates Jesus’ baptism in the Jordan River. The holiday comprises three days of celebration, the highlight of which is the procession of the tabot — a representation of the Ark of the Covenant housed in every Ethiopian Orthodox church. For an elaborate daytime celebration in the capital, thousands of faithful churchgoers accompany clergy carrying the tabots to Jan Meda, a large, open park within the city.

Easter week in Ethiopia follows a similar pattern as in other countries, although the celebrations almost always fall on a different set of dates. Siklet (Good Friday) commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and devout believers spend it performing sigdet, which means to bow down in worship of God. (Many people can also be found in the marketplace, haggling over the price of sheep to be slaughtered for the holiday feast.) The Saturday evening before Fasika celebrates Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, and the day of Fasika itself is the culmination of Lent — a 55-day fast from dairy and meat.

Ethiopia’s 13-month calendar begins in midSeptember with the celebration of Enkutatash, the Ethiopian equivalent of New Year’s Day. Freshly cut green grass is spread across floors in homes (representing new beginnings), and feasts of traditional Ethiopian cuisine are prepared to share. According to legend, Enkutatash also marks the day Queen Makeda (known as the Queen of Sheba) returned from her famous journey to Jerusalem and her courtiers presented her with a myriad of gifts.

Meskel, the Amharic word for cross, celebrates both the discovery of a portion of the true cross of Christ by Ethiopian Queen Eleni and the end of Ethiopia’s long rainy season. Celebrants start bonfires made of long bundles of sticks known as chibo. While most Christian families will light a fire in their home or village, the largest blaze happens in Addis Ababa’s Meskel Square. Here, a massive crowd watches the patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church ceremonially light a 10-meter-tall cone of wood. Then, liturgical singing, dancing and feasting ensues.

THE BUSINESS OF OUTFITTING A GENTLEMAN In an industry teeming with brands and labels, many fashion retailers are distinguishing themselves as purveyors of more than just apparel. For these three shops, outfitting a man (whether in-store or online) involves more than a purchase — it’s a highly curated experience.

ORLEBAR BROWN

THE ARMOURY

London

Hong Kong

Flagship store in Singapore

Three stores in London

Two stores in Hong Kong

TGC knows that accessories can elevate an outfit from good to great. The company is committed to stocking quality goods from emerging artisans to complete the look, including handmade bow ties, classic suspenders, and leather backpacks and iPad cases. But its ethos (“Don’t just buy things, experience them”) goes beyond cool: The store organizes workshops where customers can engage with master crafters and even try their hand at making their own wares, bringing the retail experience full circle. www.tyrwhittgeneralcompany.com

Whether you’re in the market for some eye-catching pink chinos or a basic navy polo, OB offers colorful, classic wardrobe necessities. The company’s online Style Adviser features a variety of “looks,” allowing customers to purchase a stylish ensemble with one click. (Locals might also want to check out OB’s raincoats for those drizzly London days.) The brand’s culture extends from styling to lifestyling, with its online publication for modern gents (check out their story on the origins of the iconic Panama Hat). Ladies: Look for OB’s womenswear line, coming soon. www.orlebarbrown.com

A true haberdashery, this clothier takes the outfitting experience to an artisanal level. Instead of labels like Armani or Gucci, you’ll see works by Italian bespoke trouser designer Salvatore Ambrosi, or lauded master shoemaker Koji Suzuki. The Armoury’s gallery of goods artfully reflects the brand’s philosophy to engage its customers with talented craftsmen through regular trunk shows, visits and fittings with partnering artisans. Buyer beware: This isn’t a place for the bargain shopper; if you want to look like a million bucks, you just might have to spend that much. www.thearmoury.com

WOMEN DOING A WORLD OF GOOD ELSIE KANZA

After making a name for herself at the Ministry of Finance and Central Bank of Tanzania, Kanza became the economic advisor to the country’s president. Today, she’s the director, head of Africa, at the World Economic Forum, a Geneva, Switzerland-based initiative that brings together global leaders in business, politics and other fields in hopes of sparking collaboration and change. Forbes magazine thinks she’s doing her part: In 2011, the publication ranked her on its “The 20 Youngest Power Women In Africa” list.

DR. NGOZI OKONJO-IWEALA

Born in a Nigerian village, Okonjo-Iweala can claim a few exciting “firsts” for women in her country: She was appointed Nigeria’s first female finance minister in 2003 and, three years later, its first female foreign minister. (During that time, she helped negotiate a deal to write off US$18 billion of country debt.) After becoming one of the managing directors of the World Bank, she then returned to Nigerian politics, where she currently leads the president’s economic team as minister of finance.

How five leading ladies are improving the state of African affairs.


ELLEN JOHNSON SIRLEAF

Sirleaf’s resumé is no doubt long and impressive, yet there’s one accomplishment that tops all others: She’s the first female to be democratically elected as head of state in an African country. The Harvard graduate assumed the presidency in Liberia during a daunting time — when the country was wrecked by 14 years of civil strife. Known as the “Iron Lady” for her tenacity and grit, Sirleaf was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace in 2011 for her women’s rights work.

JOYCE BANDA

Joyce Banda, the first female president of Malawi, isn’t just a woman of influence herself; she’s using her forces to open doors for other women too. The activistentrepreneur has started a number of initiatives, such as the Young Women Leaders Network and the National Association of Business Women of Malawi, each of which gives girls the tools to think, live and work for themselves.

MAMPHELA RAMPHELE

Ramphele has done it all, from academics and finance to medicine and politics (including anti-apartheid activism and a stint at the World Bank). Most recently, she’s formed a pro-citizen, pro-democracy political party in South Africa called Agang, meaning “to build.” In the 2014 elections, Agang will challenge the African National Congress, which has ruled South Africa since 1994.

SEEING AFRICA, FROM BEHIND A CAMERA

What’s better than experiencing the African wild? Seeing it alongside a professional photographer, whose hands-on training will ensure you capture every memory. LONDOLOZI

CAPTURE SAFARIS

ANDY BIGGS

More than 80 years ago, two friends set up camp on the banks of Africa’s Sand River, where they fell in love with the unspoiled terrain. Today, their families still have a stake in the bush through Londolozi — a 6-million-acre (roughly 2.5-million-hectare) ranch-turned-naturereserve. On the menu of distinctive safaris? Stunning photographic escapes.

Between the two of them, Tim Golds and Paul Joynson Hicks have spent 35 years capturing Africa on camera. Their time in the field has informed their expertly curated “Top 10 Safaris” list, with trips to all corners of the continent. Don’t see your destination in the mix? They’ll help you design a custom outing.

Andy Biggs’ landscape and wildlife photography feels modern and fresh, quiet yet powerful. Those wanting to learn Biggs’ emotive style can follow him to iconic African spots or off-the-beatenpath locales (or even book a private mentoring session in his printing studio).

Horns honk, birds sing and Arabic words stream from the loudspeakers and into the stands with mounting anticipation. But the crowds remain composed. Only when the Sheikh takes the lead do they let out boisterous cheers of excitement. Yet leading the pack is not the Sheikh himself but his dromedary — a knobbykneed, one-humped camel. Behind him, the others race forward in an identical gallop, their gangly legs pounding the ground past the finish. Most then slow to a stop, but a few plod around dazed, turning back toward the start as barefoot wranglers scurry onto the track to corral them. Minutes later, the gate rises again, caretakers prodding the animals from behind with sticks and shouts. Another lap begins around the 5-kilometer (3-mile) track, one of 30 championship races to be held almost daily during the 12-day Dubai Camel Racing Festival — 15 laps in the morning, 15 in the afternoon. It’s an unexpected sight in a city where appetite for growth increasingly eclipses what once was: Urban sprawl radiates from the shadow of the world’s tallest building — the Burj Khalifa skyscraper; man-made archipelagos dot the coast, altering the Gulf’s ecology; and foreigners — lured by the promise of a booming economy — handily outnumber Emiratis, who make up only 10 percent of the population. Even Dubai’s souks sparkle, signs of grit and age brushed away from these historic markets like granules of sand

after the occasional windstorm. Out with the old, in with the new. But today, the past lingers. N OT YO U R AV E R AG E R AC E To get a closer look at the action, I catch a ride in one of some 50 chase-cars that shadow the races. They consist mostly of white luxury SUVs filled with entourages of aviator-wearing Emiratis, save for two; these vehicles are topped by bandit-style cameramen — faces covered by scarves to fend off the sand as they swivel on roof-mounted seats. Coasting alongside the track, I watch viscous strands of spit stream from the camels’ mouths over big lips that flop

wildly in the wind. Despite their lanky form, their gait is so unexpectedly graceful that when I squint, they almost — almost — look like horses. The jockeys, on the other hand, resemble nothing I’m familiar with. Here in Dubai, camels are mounted by robots. Once a job performed by children (outlawed in 2002 by the United Arab Emirates, with other Gulf countries following suit), it is now the task of backpack-sized, jersey-wearing machines. Meanwhile, the chase-cars filled with robot-controlling trainers follow on a paved inner track. From their cars, they urge the camels on, honking horns, speaking to them via walkie-talkies and triggering robot-attached whips that swirl like pinwheels in hurricane-force winds. But “not anyone can be a trainer,” explains my new friend Feras Qatwa, a 34-year-old cameraman, former child jockey and son of a camel trainer. “He has continued on page 32 BELOW | Mounted atop each camel is a robot “jockey,” controlled from afar by the camel’s trainer.

continued from page 28 to know everything. He has to know [the camel’s] mother and father, his grandfather, what he was doing in the race.” Starting when the camels are just 2 to 3 years old, trainers take them to the track, running them side-by-side with their mothers. Eventually, the camels are robot-mounted and, during their several-year race career, can run as fast as 40 kilometers per hour. Mechanical jockeys aside, the human-camel connection couldn’t be closer. One trainer even insists that, among a thousand voices, his camels would know his own.

Indifferent, he replies, “It’s probably Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed.” Yes, it’s the 31-year-old crown prince of Dubai — His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. A poet in his free time, the modernday royal serves as the chairman of both the Dubai Executive Council and the Dubai Autism Centre, among many other duties.

regular visitor to the Al Marmoum Camel Racetrack. During my two days at the festival, I see various sheikhs arrive to watch their camels, of which they own thousands. Known as “ships of the desert,” these sturdy all-terrain, all-weather pack animals have long been vital to the region, and especially to Bedouins, the tribal nomads of the Middle East. But this has changed as the UAE has grown and modernized. The need for camels just isn’t what it used to be. Understanding the cultural value of the camel, however, Sheikh Zayed — the visionary behind the UAE’s formation in 1971 — and his fellow rulers decided to promote racing, an Arabian Peninsula tradition since the 7th century. With that, the Emirates Camel Racing Federation was created in 1992. From prize money to airport-sized parking lots filled with cars awarded to race winners, the sheikhs fund nearly the entire affair, all in an effort to keep the tradition alive. FO C U S E D O N T H E F U T U R E , G R O U N D E D I N T H E PAST As entertaining as the races may be, it is the income potential that truly propels their success (and not because of betting ­— gambling is forbidden by Islam).

As with real-estate investments, race enthusiasts might pay 200,000 dirham (US$55,000) for a camel, then turn around and sell their trophy-winning pet for 2-3 million dirham. The opportunity to win lavish prizes only adds to the appeal. It’s probably no surprise, then, that race popularity grows just like the Dubai skyline, in a country where, according to Feras, the morning news says the Sheikh will build a new city, and then in the afternoon that he will build yet another. And I believe it: With construction materials scattering the Dubai outskirts, I’m certain that next year — even next month — this landscape will have transformed. But I’m also starting to believe that connections to the past will remain, too, like they do here at the racetrack. A shoeless Emirati stands in the mud, rubbing a saffron mixture onto the heads of winning camels. Men dressed in white floor-length robes, known as dishdasha, mingle over cups of gahwa, a cardamom-spiced Arabian coffee. Sheikhs come and go, the object of both respect and deep affection by the surrounding crowds. This sense of tradition hangs heavy in the humid air as I watch a few final laps with Feras, the afternoon breeze tumbling toward us from the track as though carried on the camels’ very backs. Between puffs on his wooden midwakh pipe, Feras tells me how his father introduced him to the races and how, starting at age 3, he would drink milk “direct from the camel every day.” “My father taught me about this; my grandfather taught me about this. I will teach [my future son] of course.” It turns out that while Dubai may be racing toward the future, it brings the past along with it too — camels and all.

Stockholm during the winter for many reasons, but one is especially charming: the Kungsträdgårdens ice rink at the city’s center. Skate rentals aren’t too steep (about US$8 per hour), and gliding city dwellers, quaint music and warming huts all add to the atmosphere. For skaters wanting a slightly more rugged approach, an outfitter called Ice Guide (www.iceguide.se) offers tours of the area’s natural waterways when the ice is right. And for those who’d rather stroll than skate, the city’s scenery makes the chill well worth bearing: Design lovers will relish the mix of medieval and modern architecture, and history buffs can do a bit of time travel by visiting the region’s three UNESCO World Heritage sites: Birka (a Viking-age archaeological site), Drottningholm castle and the Woodland Cemetery.

First, hike a portion of the Badaling Great Wall, a scenic stretch that was restored in 1957. Then travel a short distance (about 17 kilometers, or 10 miles) to Yangqing County for the festival, held January through February, where more than 400 ice sculptures illuminated with colored lights create a wintry spectacle. Guide company Tour Beijing will handle the details and give you a lift for a reasonable fee (US$150 for one; US$180 per pair).

As the street lights pinched out one by one, we found ourselves guided by the piercingly bright stars alone. Two friends and I had just set out on a few-day mission to camp our way across Oman, the quiet corner of the Arabian Peninsula. The country’s diverse landscape of beaches, valleys, sand dunes and islands inspired our to-do list, and its superb road system and generous camping laws promised an easy trip. As we rumbled south from Muscat into the mountains that ring the capital, we entered a valley (called a wadi in Arabic) and pulled over to examine possible campsites. The first was too rocky. The next: too sandy. The third bristled with prickly bushes. We pressed on and eventually made out the gently swaying profiles of towering palm trees. A melody of trickling water and chirping frogs drew us away from the road and to a small clearing, where we set up our first campsite. As we sat around our camp stove and

//// As the street lights pinched out one by one, we found ourselves guided by the piercingly bright stars alone. tucked into our simple meal of instant noodles, tuna and sweet corn, the sounds of night creatures quickly serenaded us to sleep. We retired to our tent and slept with our heads poking out of its flap, an iridescent view of the Milky Way painted across the night sky. Having camped in a mountain wadi, we cruised farther south the next day, watching as northeastern Oman’s mountains gave way to a gravel desert plain that stretched on in every direction as far as the eye could see. Hours into our drive, a 10-story-high sand dune materialized about a half kilometer off the highway. We veered off the road, jumped out of our car and scaled the golden mountain. As we took in the commanding view from the top, we saw nothing that could explain the sand dune’s presence in the middle of the Omani plain. We were, as we had been for a long while, in the middle of nowhere. The sun began to set, so we once again pulled off the highway and drove into the vast expanse of nothing (aptly named “The Empty Quarter”) that makes up Oman’s undefined border with Saudi Arabia. Our previously flat surroundings had morphed into a scene of tiny dunes and stout, parched trees, and it was here that we began to search for a place to sleep. But soon our car shuddered slightly, and we felt its tires pull hard through a soft spot of sand. We continued on carefully, but before long our tires spun out and we sank a crippling 10 centimeters (almost 4 inches) into the sand. Our campsite chose itself; we were stuck. The next morning, sweaty and sandy

from an hourlong dig-out, we agreed that watching the blood-red sunset over Saudi Arabia had been worth the slight waylay. My friends and I were thirsty for a swim, so we navigated back to the highway and set off for the coastal city of Salalah. Located at Oman’s southernmost point and ringed by mountains, Salalah is transformed by the summer monsoon (called khareef) into a verdant landscape. The city is also home to the ruins of Khor Rori, an ancient frankincense trading post that sits beside a deserted beach populated by flamingos, sea turtles and camels. After a day spent snorkeling, swimming and wildlife-spotting, we found our third camping site in a hillside cave beside a freshwater spring. Tiny crevasses glinted as a few hanging bats blinked

down at us, but we blessed their presence as nature’s defense against buzzing mosquitoes. The site was a popular grilling spot at night for locals, who chatted at tables on the other side of the park. The following morning we had nowhere to go but north. Our final stop was Masirah Island, an underdeveloped 95-kilometer-long island just off the central Omani coast. As we drove toward the ferry terminal in Shannah, the land beside the road slowly split into colorful gorges, carved out by rushing water during the rainy season. There are no scheduled boats to Masirah; the ferries run during daylight hours and leave when full, so we directed our car toward one that looked ready to depart. We arrived at the island as the sun sank low and drove along the coastal road to find the final campsite on our checklist: a deserted beach. Tearing along windy roads that cut through Masirah’s compact mountain range, we finally spotted a pass into a protected slice of beach facing the Indian Ocean. Our final site, our final tent and our final night: just us, our fire and a gentle ocean breeze. SEE PAGE 38 FOR CAMPING TIPS.

WINGING IT T I P S FO R C R E AT I N G YO U R OW N C A M P I N G A DV E N T U R E I N O M A N . At every turn, in every wadi, my friends and I winged it. But as we proved, dropping into Oman for a camping adventure is met with a soft landing: We conquered the country’s vast wilderness with simply a Ford Explorer stuffed with camping supplies. Here are a few tips for planning your own desert-camping adventure:

WHEN TO GO: Oman’s summer (April to October) is scorching, with highs averaging 40 C (104 F), but the winter months from December to March are temperate, with

temperatures floating around 25 C (77 F). Those seeking a more tropical experience, however, might enjoy summer in Salalah, where the monsoon-like khareef brings fog, rain and chillier air. The city and its surrounding hills, waterfalls and springs turn a vibrant shade of green. WISH WE HAD BROUGHT: A sand ladder (a ladder-shaped trellis placed under car tires to gain traction) for escaping from one too many unexpectedly soft sand dunes. WISH WE HAD KNOWN: To always drive over preexisting tracks in the sand. If there are no tire marks, you might find yourself camping in the middle of the desert for longer than you bargained for.

BELOW | The author’s friends cook a simple meal of ramen amid the mountains ringing Muscat.

T I M F I T Z SI M O NS

HOW TO DO IT: According to popular wisdom, camping is legal almost everywhere in Oman’s unpopulated wilderness — so long as your tent is not on the front yard of one of the Sultan’s palaces. Follow pointers in any guidebook (The Lonely Planet was our main reference) and ask anyone you see if you need any assistance — the Omanis we met along the way were always friendly and helpful.

WHAT YOU NEED: Any Omani camping excursion requires the basics: tent, sleeping bags, canned food, bottled water and lots of sunscreen. An all-wheel drive car — especially one with “sand mode” — is highly recommended if you plan to camp anywhere more than a few hundred meters from a main highway (which is also highly recommended). After arriving in Muscat, drive over to the Muscat City Centre mall and load up on supplies at its generously stocked Carrefour supermarket. Aside from food and water, you can buy maps, tents, camp stoves, utensils, car-phone chargers and other supplies. Oman’s mobile phone network seems to reach everywhere, so a 3G-enabled SIM card installed on your smartphone might help you and your compatriots find the road after a wrong turn in the middle of the desert.

The weekend Chatuchak market in Bangkok. The Sunday bird market in Porto, Portugal. The morning market on Nusa Penida — a small island off the coast of Bali. No matter how big or small, each market has a way of unlocking that particular place for me, letting me get to its very heart as I witness the local community coming together. And so it is that on a recent trip to Mumbai, I find myself waking with the sun to catch the Dadar flower market at its busiest. Although it is open all day, the market’s peak hours are 4 a.m. to 9 a.m. — shortly after the night’s deliveries have been unloaded. I have barely left Dadar station when the sidewalks begin to overflow with flowers — vendors already fashioning their purchases from the market into bouquets and garlands, leading me toward the source like breadcrumbs on a trail. My steps quicken as the scent of jasmine blossoms grows.

Just outside the covered portion of the 720-stall market, I meet Surin and Suresh, seated on overturned crates behind their wares. They are both from Mumbai and have worked in the flower business for nearly 20 years. “This is our ancestors’ business, so we are doing it too.”

They point out bright-green tulsi leaves to me, explaining that they are used for “medicine and puja,” or special Hindu ceremonies. It isn’t until I get home and look up tulsi that I learn it is also known as holy basil, which explained why the market was so redolent of it. Next, Suresh holds up tightly furled, brilliantly red hibiscus, or jaswand — the flower favored by Ganesha, the elephantheaded Hindu deity.

Already the early wake-up call feels worth it, to find familiar plants now rendered exotic by new names and uses. But my fascination continues in the center of the market. Each lane is no wider than five feet and is lined with stalls. Stacks of blue crates stagger toward the ceiling. Marigolds in vivid shades of saffron and cadmium yellow spill over the sides of round woven baskets. It is impossible to avoid being in someone’s way. The minute I move aside for a man bearing a bag of roses on his head, I am pushed aside by two more, swinging plastic sacks of dark pink asters and more of those striking marigolds over their shoulders. The market is a kaleidoscope of colors and commerce, forever spinning and shifting its shape. So for just a moment, I step outside of it all, sitting on the only empty table to let the frenzy pass me by. I chat with more vendors and listen to others chanting “Pila, pila, pila,” (Hindi for “yellow”), while they refill their baskets of marigolds. My connection with the market grows in stages — a single conversation here, a single observation there — until I feel myself becoming a part of it. Just before leaving, I spot a group of men threading coral-pink rose petals around individual jasmine buds, one after another until their creations hang three feet long. Garlands are ubiquitous across India, and not just in temples. They hang from the sides of telephone poles and above doorways as an offering to the gods or simply to honor the memory of an ancestor. I will never look at a garland the same way again, after having first seen them as simply a ball of thread and a bundle of blossoms. I realize, too, that I will also never look at Mumbai the same way — at the tiny corner of this city of 20 million people that has been unlocked to me this morning. Markets are the hub and hive of a city, a chance to see it in the raw — to trace where your last meal came from, or where that pashmina scarf you bought on the street might have originated. You no longer take as much for granted. As I begin walking back to Dadar

station, I recall what a silk vendor said to me in the Mangaldas fabric market two days earlier: “It will take you at least one year to cover all the markets in Mumbai. Even I could not count them today.” He may be right, but with visions of fragrant garlands still dancing in my mind, I know that my morning in the flower market was the perfect place to start.

MORE MUMBAI MAR K E TS Mangaldas Market More than 200 years old, Mangaldas is Mumbai’s silk and fabric market, with 600plus shops situated along a central gully and nine intersecting lanes. Each merchant is perched on a gaddi, or cushioned platform suspended above the floor, and is eager to unroll bolt after bolt of fabric before you.

With shimmering saris, salwar kameez suits and colorful churidars (tight-fitting trousers), your only worry will be finding an extra suitcase to bring it all home. Zaveri Bazar Zaveri means “jewelry” in Hindi, so it’s no surprise that this is Mumbai’s gold and gemstones market. It differs from other markets in the city in that it isn’t enclosed; rather, its 1,500-some shops line three main streets, making it the perfect place to window-shop. Zaveri Bazar is also worth a visit simply for the beautiful

buildings that bookend it: Jama Masjid mosque and the Mumba Devi Temple. Crawford Market Just across the street from Mangaldas and the Zaveri Bazar is Crawford Market, founded in 1869 and named after the first municipal commissioner of Mumbai, Arthur Crawford. The market’s stalls (numbering more than a thousand) sell everything from fresh produce to imported candy. The pet section is especially fun to wander through — if you can manage to leave without purchasing a puppy or parakeet.

Y FRIENDS AND I HAD BEEN PLANNING A TRIP TO LALIBELA FOR MORE THAN A DECADE. NOT SO MUCH PLANNING AS P R O C R A S T I N AT I N G .

m

As a second-generation Ethiopian, I visited the country every year or so, mostly to see friends and family and sometimes more recently for work. And each time, I ended up visiting the southern lake resorts of Langano instead of the northern holy city. But with the passage of time and a reconnection with my Ethiopian Orthodox faith, I rekindled a desire to visit the medieval cave churches. Lalibela conjures up a mythical appeal, rather like the Taj Mahal in India, or the Sagrada Família in Spain. My friends and I initially hoped to do a northern cities historical tour, taking in Bahir Dar, Gondar, Lalibela and Axum. But complicated logistics for four of us meant that we shortened our trip to two days in Lalibela only. In a sense, Lalibela is a microcosm of Ethiopia — combining stunning landscapes and ancient churches with a sense of otherworldliness. Churches and monasteries are perched on mountainsides overlooking steep gorges and, in one case, cloud cover that leads to the impression of being outside everyday reality. And indeed, nowhere else on the planet is there a single larger monolithic church. Lalibela was built by King Lalibela in the 13th century as an African alternative to the holy city of Jerusalem. At the time, Christian pilgrimages to Jerusalem were halted by the Muslim conquests. Lalibela’s 11 churches were not built from brick but rather carved from the

46

selamtamagazine.com

living rock, sometimes underground. The blocks of rock were intricately hewn with doors, windows and drainage systems all carved out of the original stone. Scholars disagree on King Lalibela’s motivation for this method of construction, and while the exact techniques of carving are unclear, it is said to have taken a mere 24 years to complete the impressive project. Legend has it that while the king worked with local Ethiopian artisans and architects by day, angels took over and helped them complete the task by night. P R E PA R AT I O N S FO R P I LG R I M AG E Before traveling to Lalibela, I visited my

grandmother in Addis Ababa. I’d been in town for a few weeks on a business trip, making occasional visits to her home, so I wanted to bid her farewell and get a netela headscarf to cover my head in the holy places. She was delighted with my trip to Lalibela. A journey to the town is almost always equated with a search for spiritual clarity and a desire to grow in the Orthodox faith. I was wearing my netela when I stepped off the plane at Lalibela Airport into the cold morning air. The first stop on our tour would be a monastery that lies away from the main group of churches, so we drove about 20 minutes and then walked the remaining 10 to Asheten Mariam. Asheten Mariam is situated high above Lalibela on Mount Abuna Yosef. It is only semi-monolothic, having been carved out of a cliff face, and is thought continued on page 50 BELOW | A metal awning funded by UNESCO protects Bete Amanuel Church against the elements.

continued from page 46 to have been built by King Lalibela’s nephew after the other, more wellknown churches. This monastery — set at an altitude of around 4,000 meters (more than 13,000 feet) — provides an impressive panorama, with mountains and lush green valleys extending from the cliff as far as the eye can see. I was prepared for beautiful churches and awe-inspiring architecture. But why had no one told me about the mountains? Lalibela sits amid the Lasta mountain range of North Wollo, which means that almost wherever you turn, your field of vision is filled with peaks, verdant fields and tiny winding roads. It’s no wonder King Lalibela chose to build here. The view from my hotel bedroom was just as stunning: mountain after mountain, one silhouetted behind the other in a slightly darker or lighter shade of green, and a patchwork of valley fields with clouds hanging low. Perhaps altitudeinduced light-headedness clouded my judgment, but this mountain range spoke to my soul more than any other I have encountered across four continents. P R AY E R S A N D R I T UA L My desire to spend time in Africa’s Jerusalem combined curiosity with a genuine spiritual desire, and I had determined to maximize my time. At each church we visited, my Ethiopian companion in the group and I took time to pray, lighting candles and performing

genuflections. In most Orthodox and Coptic places of worship, men and women are seated separately. So my friend and I prayed at different altars or, as in some of the smaller churches, prayed at the same altar at different times to observe the tradition. I never let a priest pass me by without making a slight nod, prompting him to take out his cross for me to kiss and be blessed. Another standout moment from my personal pilgrimage included visiting Bete Ghiorgis church. If Lalibela is a microcosm of Ethiopia, then Bete

//// Lalibela is a microcosm of Ethiopia — combining stunning landscapes and ancient churches with a sense of otherworldliness. 50

Ghiorgis is a microcosm of Lalibela. It’s built in the shape of a cross and lies slightly away from the other 10 churches on the main site. You see it first from above and then must scramble down to explore. In fact, the physical challenge of getting in and out of all the churches was almost a spiritual feat in itself. Overall, the combination of mountain air, early nights, reflection and the inescapable spiritual dimension gave me a breadth of perspective. I had come to Africa’s Jerusalem pretty weary and in search of spiritual succour, and I left with my spirit invigorated. You don’t have to be Orthodox or even religious, though, to benefit from a trip to Lalibela. Amid the ancient walls, flickering candles and breathtaking beauty, even the most spiritually skeptical might find themselves suspending disbelief, if only for a few days.

I T WA S G O OD F RI DAY I N ROME. The streets were abuzz with shoulder-season tourists and the religious faithful riding high from the election of Pope Francis I two weeks prior. While many fought through the crowds in Saint Peter’s Square — in hopes of getting a glimpse of the accessible Argentine pontiff — I found myself a few miles away in the picturesque, cobblestoned Campo de’ Fiori square. I had come from Milan to take part in a Home Food experience along with my friend Amber, a fellow expatriate in Italy. Home Food is an Italian organization that allows travelers to dine in locals’ homes and experience traditional cuisine and hospitality. Each cook is known as Cesarina — an old-fashioned Italian woman’s name, which brings to mind the nostalgic idea of a matronly woman who shows affection through food. Those interested in taking part in a Home Food dinner can view the menu descriptions offered by the various Cesarine (or Cesarini, as some hosts are male)

throughout Italy and reserve a place at a table via the Home Food website. Meals cost around €50 (roughly US$66) per person1. After making our way through the famed Campo de’ Fiori fruit-andvegetable market as vendors dismantled their stands, we arrived at the appointed address. There, we were greeted warmly by Cesarina Hilary, a slender former dancer with a sweet smile. Despite her non-Italian name, Hilary assured us that she is Italianissima (“very Italian”). We entered Hilary’s home directly into a candle-lit kitchen and dining room with soaring wood-beamed ceilings, where we were welcomed by Hilary’s companion, Luca, a well-known film director. Luca set about enthusiastically showing us around and telling us the history of the home, which at one time was part of a palazzo owned by the noble Orsini family. Not only were the Orsinis one of the most influential families in Renaissance-era Rome, but they also had much clout in the Catholic Church, with several Orsini males going on to become cardinals and even popes. Yet the site of the palazzo dates back even further, to the ancient Theatre of Pompey, built in 55 B.C. In fact, columns from one of the theater’s annexes,

//// These dinners are a moment in time that brings people from different cultures together...

the Temple of Venus Victrix, can still be seen in various points throughout the apartment; they were maintained as supports when the Palazzo Orsini was built in the 1400s. Before dinner, Hilary and Luca invited us to sit in the living room and enjoy a glass of wine as we waited for the other guests2. B AC K TO I TA LY ’ S R O OTS Home Food in Italy is not as much a trendy locavore movement as an attempt to safeguard and promote recipes that have been handed down generation after generation in Italy’s various regions, each of which has its own specific cuisine. Indeed, to become a Cesarina for

Home Food, Hilary had to prepare a meal for a panel of judges who would ensure the authenticity of her dishes. In the years since then, Hilary has enjoyed sharing the Roman recipes that have been passed down from Luca’s mother. Their guests have been mostly Americans and Australians. Understandably, Hilary pointed out, Home Food dinners are not as popular with Italians; as the organization’s name implies, most Italians eat this way at home during a typical Sunday lunch. “These dinners are a moment in time that brings people from different cultures together,” she said. “They give you the opportunity to meet people you’d never imagine meeting, like the five Eskimos who are coming to dinner in a few weeks.” The American couple that was to join us canceled at the last minute, so the four of us made our way into the dining room for dinner, which featured a menu titled “The mysterious scents of ancient Rome at Palazzo Orsini.” An elaborate table had been set for our feast, with brightly colored, mismatched antique plates and large ceramic candleholders from Caltagirone, a town in Sicily famous for its pottery. Hilary immediately brought us a selection of Roman country appetizers, including a pumpkin-and-walnut spread, pickled red onions, sundried tomatoes and prosciutto adorned with chives — all

made with local organic ingredients. The smooth pumpkin-and-walnut spread was especially interesting because, in Italy, pumpkin typically tends to be an afterthought in risotto or winter minestrone; here, it received star billing. The combination of the two ingredients was unusual but pleasing, with the sweetness of the pumpkin blending with the nuttiness of the noci (walnuts). Following the appetizers, our first course was stracceti (wide ribbons of fresh pasta) with zucchini, pumpkin, mint and freshly grated Roman pecorino cheese. The mint added a delightful freshness and made for a dish that was different from anything found in the typical wood-paneled Italian trattoria.

While the abundant portion of pasta could have been a meal itself, there was still the second (meat) course to come, plus salad and dessert, as is typical for a traditional Italian meal. The second course carried the evening’s secondary theme — film — with Picchiapò-style boiled beef, as featured in the Italian movie We All Loved Each Other So Much (a 1974 Rome-based comedy/drama directed by Ettore Scola). The Picchiapò beef dish — stew-like with onions, tomatoes and spicy pepper — is one of those cucina povera (“poor food”) classics that usually involves recycling leftovers but has made a comeback in modern Italian cuisine. After Luca explained the dish, he

started talking about film sets he’s worked on and some of the famous directors and actors he’s gotten to know. As we moved on to a seasonal salad of arugula, walnuts and pecorino cheese, conversation turned from Luca’s recent projects to the touchy subject of Italian politics. Thankfully, the dessert course quickly followed, sweetening the tone of our discussion with a ricotta cake featuring pears soaked in chestnut honey, ginger and clove. I had never tasted such flavors in an Italian sweet, but Hilary assured me that they date back to ancient Rome, as ginger and cloves were prized commodities brought from places like India and Indonesia. After dinner, the couple graciously invited us to choose a movie from their vast collection of Italian classics and watch it on the pull-down screen in their living room, but we reluctantly declined. We had trains to catch the next day, and we also knew that Hilary had a large Easter meal to prepare. We were heady as we made our way out into the Roman night. It could have been the wine — a Rosso Piceno table wine from a town a few hours outside Rome, near the Adriatic Sea — but more than likely, it was the magic of an unexpected evening full of new tastes and new friendships. Truly like something out of a movie. 1 The pricing might differ if you request a private dinner with a specific Cesarina or more control over the menu. 2 A Home Food dinner typically hosts between two and eight guests.

VOLCA N OE S NATIONAL PARK in northern Rwanda is renowned among animal enthusiasts as one of the last places on earth to see the critically endangered mountain gorilla. These enormous animals — adult males can approach 500 pounds — live on the forested slopes of the Virunga Mountains, and guided visits are among the premier tourist activities in East Africa. But popular as these excursions might be, Volcanoes National Park is home to more than just one rare and charismatic primate. The golden monkey, named for the rich golden patch that runs the length of its back, also thrives in the park’s densely wooded slopes. Other than sharing a taste for young bamboo shoots, these monkeys are distinct from the mountain gorillas in almost every way. They spend most of their lives in the trees, and while the gorilla families are generally presided over by a single breeding male — a silverback — it is the female golden monkeys who lead their group, banding together to fight off predators such as eagles and feral dogs. While their exact numbers and distribution are unknown, this unique species of

monkey is almost entirely restricted to the Virunga Mountains and has been listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature since 1996. Volcanoes National Park is one of the only places in the world where tourists can track the golden monkey and spend an hour with one of their active and playful family groups. The monkeys have been habituated, so they do not hesitate to approach as they go about their morning routine — offering a remarkably intimate encounter for visitors. If they lived anywhere else, the golden monkeys might be better known. But as neighbor to one of the animal world’s superstars, they can be easy to miss. “They’re like the little brother,” said Faustin Twizerimana, a hotel manager who works just steps from the park. Twizerimana grew up in the area and remembers being captivated by the golden monkeys when he was younger, watching them jump from tree to tree. While the overwhelming majority of park visitors come to see the mountain gorillas, this may slowly be changing. Twizerimana estimates that in his establishment, as many as 35 percent of the guests now come expressly to see the

golden monkeys. When asked why the tourists come, he answers simply: “The monkeys are wonderful.” One possible reason for the slight upswing in visitors is a growing awareness of how accessible the golden monkeys are and how comparably affordable the experience is. Volcanoes National Park is a little more than two hours from Kigali on a well-maintained tarmac road, making it a feasible day trip for early risers or a leisurely overnight. While there is no place to stay in the park itself, the nearby towns of Musanze and Kinigi offer a range of accommodation options — everything from clean, basic dormitory-style bunks to posh eco-lodges that run upward of US$600 a night. The fee to visit the golden monkeys (which includes the services of a guide and several expert trackers) is just a fraction of that to see the mountain gorillas, and the hike itself is much less strenuous. Visitors can expect a relatively gentle climb through the farmland surrounding the park, followed by a beautiful if muddy walk into the bamboo forest. Mary Wozniak, an American tourist visiting Rwanda from her home in Peru,

//// The golden monkey, named for the rich golden patch along its back, thrives in Volcanoes National Park. recently added a day to her gorilla trek to see the golden monkeys. About both experiences, she notes: “You get to see up close that your money goes toward protecting the next generation.” Together with their “big brothers,” the golden monkeys are bringing essential revenue to Volcanoes National Park, contributing not only to their own preservation but also to the preservation of their entire ecosystem. Just as the park would not be complete without these unique and beautiful creatures, nor is any trip to Rwanda complete without a visit to experience them.

They work in small groups, chatting and plucking leaves for one of China’s most expensive green teas: Dragon Well tea. Also known as longjing in Mandarin, this tea comes from plants unique to the West Lake region. Dragon Well Tea Village is a cluster of eight plantations here that attracts tea aficionados from across the country and world. ALL THE TEA IN CHINA One of China’s major cash crops, tea has a special place in the nation’s culture. Legend has it that the first cup of Chinese tea was made around 2737 BC, when a camellia blossom fell into a cup of hot drinking water that the ancient Chinese Emperor Shen Nung was about to imbibe. Initially, tea was only enjoyed by aristocrats and scholars in Ba-Shu (now Sichuan Province), in Southwest China. In the 8th century, the famous Tang Dynasty poet and “tea sage” Lu Yu from Ba-Shu wrote the first book devoted to the subject — The Classic of Tea — which discussed the merits of the beverage, the proper procedures for brewing and serving tea, and the rituals and ceremonies involved. After the publication of Lu’s book, the tea-drinking trend spread to every hamlet in the country. Within about 400 years,

teahouses were an integral part of China’s social fabric. Teahouses today range from elaborate setups in tranquil gardens to humble refreshment stops on the verandas of family homes, and they serve a similar function as cafés in Europe. D R AG O N W E L L T E A Authentic Dragon Well tea is grown within a 168-square-kilometer (104-square-mile)

area in the West Lake vicinity, and the oldest and most valuable plants are found in Dragon Well Tea Village. According to folklore, the 17th-century Chinese Emperor Kangxi sampled a cup of tea from one of 18 tea bushes in Dragon Well Tea Village and deemed it the “Imperial tea,” fit for royalty. Today, the best-quality Dragon Well teas still come from these same 18 plants and yield more money per gram than gold — fetching as much as 36,000 RMB (US$5,800) for only 100 grams (3.5 ounces). Handpicked and pan-roasted almost immediately, Dragon Well tea leaves are then rolled and dried. They are rich in amino acids, Vitamin C and antioxidants, producing a complex, chestnut-like flavor. Dragon Well tea gains its clean yet robust character from this special processing method, combined with the region’s ideal geographical features: tall mountains that protect the village from chilly winter winds and harsh sunlight, and creeks that make for easy irrigation.

According to another legend, the tea was named after a local well, which got its name because of a natural curiosity: When it rained, the well’s surface would resemble the sinuous movements of a Chinese dragon. Snacks and a pot of Dragon Well tea-for-one at a Hangzhou teahouse cost 80-180 RMB (US$13-29). The tea is often served in a clear glass that reveals the leaves rising and falling in the water. Dragon Well tea is so revered that foreign dignitaries such as Queen Elizabeth II, Margaret Thatcher and Richard Nixon made it a point to try some during their visits to China.

AN IMPERIAL GARDEN One of the plantations tucked away in the farthest corner of Dragon Well Tea Village is called Longjing Imperial Tea Garden. For a 10 RMB entrance fee, you can visit its landscaped garden, pavilions, ponds, bridges and teahouses. And in the spring, you can watch the harvest taking place. Along the Tea Village’s main road, a handful of rural houses double as humble tea-processing workshops, teahouses and makeshift shops. Here, tea leaves from the plantations are sold by the gram or brewed and served to visitors by the local farmers who live and work in the village. Outside these houses, farmers sit on wooden chairs by the roadside, roasting freshly harvested tea leaves in metal woks. Looking relaxed, focused and very much absorbed in the process, the farmers swirl the leaves gently inside the wok to make sure they are evenly roasted on all sides. Once cooked, the leaves smell a little like

freshly roasted chestnuts, and visitors are often drawn to the comforting aroma. From Longjing Imperial Tea Garden, it is a slow ascent up the terraced hills. Warm sunshine and the invigorating scent of tea imbues the cool afternoon air with a spirit of well-being. It is midMarch, the time for harvesting Ming Qian Dragon Well — a specific variation that’s considered the best (and priciest) batch. Ideal climatic conditions mean

that spring shoots gathered at this time are the sweetest and most tender, and therefore more expensive than leaves produced at other times. A sip of this imperial beverage reveals its personality: a grassy aroma that soothes the mind, and toasty, buttery overtones that linger ever-sopleasantly on the taste buds. Halfway through the cup, it’s obvious why tea lovers will pay top dollar.

OPPOSITE TOP | Lush rows of tea plants line the landscape of Hangzhou’s West Lake region. OPPOSITE BOTTOM | Dragon Well tea derives its name from the Dreaming of a Tiger Spring, whose surface is said to resemble a Chinese dragon’s movements when it rains. RIGHT | With its complex, chestnut-like flavor, the best Dragon Well tea is worth more money per gram than gold.

Cruise along the city’s narrow hutongs (alleyways) and admire its hilly landscape alongside a restored retro motorcycle. Whether you’re revved up for a two-hour or a two-day tour, an expat insider will be your driver and guide, unfolding the capital before your eyes as the wind whips through your hair. For the ultimate Beijing Sideways adventure, consider the “Grand Slam” tour — including a guided hike of the Great Wall and an overnight stay at a private guest house offering panoramic views of the mountains. (Prices begin at US$150; www.beijingsideways.com.)

Enjoy a leisurely multicourse meal . . . if you’re able to relax around a table suspended 50 meters (roughly 165 feet) in the air, that is. Dinner in the Sky only needs room to support a platform with a crane, so the event company’s unforgettable meal experiences can be held anywhere — a golf course, a castle, a vineyard — and not just at dinnertime. Lunches, meetings and more are all fair game, as long as your guests are willing to rise for the occasion. (For pricing, visit www.dinnerinthesky.com.)

Indulge your inner chocoholic while simultaneously walking away the calories. It sounds too sweet to be true, but with the Brussels Chocolate Walking Tour and Workshop, you’ll follow the trail of the chocolate capital’s famed chocolatiers and try your hand at making everything from orangettes to pralines. The bonus (in addition to tasting as you go) is that you’ll leave with a sampling of your own confections, as well as the knowledge to recreate them. (Prices start at roughly US$100; Visit www.lonelyplanet.com and search for “Brussels Chocolate Tour.”)

Take a rest from the hustle-bustle of the big city while exploring the scenic Lombardy region from above. Within minutes, you’ll be soaring several thousand feet above ground, enjoying the picturesque hills, towns and vineyards that dot the countryside below. And to help ease the disappointment of landing after a magical hour in the air, Balloon Tuscany even arranges for a glass of bubbly Champagne to cheer you upon return. Salute! (Passengers must be at least 7 years old, and prices start at US$330; www.balloontuscany.com.)

Travel Tips

SEATED EXERCISES These gentle exercises, which you can carry out easily during your flight, will help blood circulation and reduce any tiredness or stiffness that may result from sitting in one place for several hours. Check with your doctor first if you have any health conditions that might be adversely affected by exercise. SHOULDER ROLL

ANKLE CIRCLES

Hunch shoulders forward, then upward, then backward, then downward, using a gentle, circular motion.

Lift feet off the floor and draw a circle with the toes, simultaneously moving one foot clockwise and the other foot counterclockwise. Reverse circles. Do each direction for 15 seconds. Repeat if desired.

ARM CURL

FOOT PUMPS

Start with arms held at a 90-degree angle: elbows down, hands out in front. Raise hands up to chest and back down, alternating hands. Do this exercise in 30-second intervals.

Start with both heels on the floor and point feet upward as high as you can. Then put both feet flat on the floor. Then lift heels high, keeping the balls of your feet on the floor. Continue cycle in 30-second intervals.

FORWARD FLEX

KNEE TO CHEST

With both feet on the floor and stomach held in, slowly bend forward and walk your hands down the front of your legs toward your ankles. Hold the stretch for 15 seconds and slowly sit back up.

Bend forward slightly. Clasp hands around the right knee and hug it to your chest. Hold stretch for 15 seconds. Keeping hands around knee, slowly let it down. Alternate legs. Repeat 10 times.

SHOULDER STRETCH

OTHER TIPS FOR A COMFORTABLE FLIGHT

Reach right hand over left shoulder. Place left hand behind right elbow and gently press elbow toward shoulder. Hold stretch for 15 seconds. Repeat on the other side.

> For your own comfort, try to travel light.

> Avoid heavy meals during the flight.

> Wear loose clothing and elasticated stockings made of natural fiber.

> Take short walks once every two hours to improve circulation.

> Increase your normal intake of water and only drink alcohol in moderation.

> Try to touch your toes when waiting in the aisle, to stretch your hamstrings.

NECK ROLL

> Use moisturizing cream to keep your skin from drying out.

> Upon arrival at your destination, take a quick jog, brisk walk or a vigorous scrub to help stimulate circulation. Then, take a hot shower or a relaxing bath.

With shoulders relaxed, drop ear to shoulder and gently roll neck forward and to the other side, holding each position for about five seconds. Repeat five times.

> Take off shoes while on the plane to prevent your feet from swelling up, or wear shoes that will cope with expanding ankles.

| MOVIE SUMMARIES

BLOCKBUSTERS Closed Circuit A high-profile terrorism case unexpectedly binds together two ex-lovers on the defense team — testing the limits of their loyalties, placing their lives in jeopardy and drawing them dangerously close once again. Despicable Me 2 While Gru, the ex-supervillain, is adjusting to family life and an attempted honest living in the jam business, a secret Arctic laboratory is stolen. The Anti-Villain League decides it needs an insider’s help and recruits Gru in the investigation. Diana Diana is a compelling portrait of Diana, Princess of Wales. Concentrating largely on the final two years of her life, the movie explores her relationship with her surgeon Hasnat Khan, and also narrates their first encounters. Getaway Former race-car driver Brent Magna is pitted against the clock when his wife is kidnapped by a mysterious villain. He commandeers a young woman’s car and takes her on on a high-speed race against time. Jobs From the early days in his garage in Palo Alto to the rise as one of the computing industry’s most admired innovators, Jobs tells the epic and turbulent story of Steve Jobs as he blazed a trail that changed technology — and the world – forever. Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters In order to restore their dying safe haven, Poseidon’s son and his friends embark on a quest to find the mythical Golden Fleece while trying to stop an ancient evil from rising.

Red II Retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials. Rush Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of James Hunt and Niki Lauda — two of the greatest rivals the world of sports has ever witnessed. Taking us into their personal lives and clashes on and off the Grand Prix racetrack, Rush follows the two drivers as they push themselves to breaking point. The Butler As Cecil Gaines serves eight presidents during his tenure as a butler at the White House, the civil rights movement, Vietnam, and other major events affect this man’s life, family, and American society. Tom & Jerry’s Giant Adventure Tom and Jerry are the faithful servants of Jack, the owner of a struggling storybook amusement park that gets a much-needed boost, thanks to some mysterious magical beans and a journey up a beanstalk. Turbo A misfit snail with a need for speed strives to earn a slot in the Indy 500 in this adrenaline-charged adventure for the entire family. Turbo may live life at a snail’s pace, but his dreams charge along at light speed. We’re the Millers Veteran pot-dealer David Burke creates a fake family (composed of a runaway, a stripper and an innocnet 18-year-old) as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico. So what could go wrong? Plenty.

CLASSIC MOVIES A Midsummer Night’s Dream Now, until the break of day, through this house each fairy stray. Academy Award winners James Cagney and Olivia de Havilland join an allstar cast in Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy of the one night each year when magic infuses the world of humans, fairies walk among men, and love will change the order of all things in a A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Braveheart In the late 13th century, William Wallace returns to a Scotland ruled by the ruthless Edward the Longshanks and leads a ramshackle yet courageous army determined to vanquish the greater English forces. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid During the closing years of the 19th century, cowboy outlaws and best friends Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid try in vain to maintain their robbing ways while the modern world creeps in on their livelihood and fading way of life. Casablanca Rick Blaine owns a nightclub in Vichy-controlled Casablanca, frequented by refugees desperate to escape German domination. Despite the ever-present human misery, Rick manages to remain uninvolved in World War II, now raging across Europe and Northern Africa. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof As the family of a wealthy Southern patriach informs his children that he is dying of cancer, lies and secrets surface that threaten to rip the family apart. The doctors say the growing cancer is in remission. One self-seeking son claims to love his father.

Chariots of Fire 1924. The Paris Olympics. Eric Liddell is a devout Christian who believes that his athletic abilities are a gift from God, and that using that gift to its fullest extent – to win the gold medal – will be his way of glorifying God.
