When I travel, I look for those experiences which combine exotic food with fascinating people and rich cultural atmosphere. On foot, On bike, on public transport: I am an Urban Explorer.
There was a time in America where the promise of new elixers and rapid medical advances led to a pharmaceutical revival akin to evangelicalism. Pharmacies were one-stop shots for every cure, from cocaine to snake oil. Temples of the apothecary arose in American cities, catering to a burgeoning middle class with expendable income. Pristinely archived at the Staedler-Ledbetter Apothecary, tour the retail room of the family enterprise, wander through a second-story warehouse, and peer through documents and journals of prominent patients of the past, such as Civil War general Robert E. Lee. Founded in 1792, the apothecary was Alexandria's longest continuously-operated business, but today it offers a detailed tour of the past.Like Add a Comment
In my home state of Texas, everyone has a car and they drive to where ever they need to be. You drive to work, drive home, or drive to a set destination, day in and day out. But where's the fun in that? Where's the variety? Whenever I visit a place such as Boston, I try to use the public transport as much as possible. Every time you wait for a subway, there's this certain air of excitement where you're almost certain that you'll see someone interesting going about their normal everyday life. They're so used to this routine, that they hardly notice that you're taking a picture, which is perfect for catching people in their true element.Like Add a Comment
