Sadness and Anger in Tangier

NOTE: These are Charley’s thoughts on the massacre in Orlando. For Craig’s, visit here.   The Tangier of the 1940s and ’50s was one that attracted queer life from around the globe, existing largely because of the 1923 Tangier protocol and lasting until Tangier was absorbed into Morocco in 1956. During that time, the city […]

In Pictures: Spain

We spent 11 days in Spain – mostly in San Sebastián and Málaga. Much of the time was spent wandering these beautiful cities aimlessly, getting lost in the side-streets of their large pedestrian areas.

Today, we write to you from Málaga, Spain, where we’ve spent the last five days. After a real whirlwind for the first three […]

Ireland and its Landmarks

There are hundreds and hundreds of castles in Ireland – many more than a thousand years old. On top of that, there are at least as many churches, barns, and towers. As Craig and I picked up the rental car, we drove directly to Newgrange and Knowth. En route, we saw a sign on the […]
