The Topography of Thanksgiving Facts and Regional Foods

  ( "Thanksgiving Grace 1942 at home of Earle Landis"  photo by Marjorie) On the Travel Writers radio show with Graeme Kemlo, Melbourne Australia   Today Thanksgiving in America means turkey, football, a groaning family table and a day off for the holiday - unless you work for some heartless greedy retailers. But we're not here for that debate. I want to let you know a few interesting facts about Thanksgiving. According to Virginians, the first one was not at Plymouth but happened at what is now Berkeley Plantation along the James River. Folks in the Virginia Commonwealth insist that the first public Thanksgiving took place well over a year before the Thanksgiving of the pilgrims in Massachusetts when Captain John Woodlief and a column 38 of newly-arrived English colonists walked to a rolling slope along the James River and [...]

Caballadas By Horse: Argentine Holiday Ride Offers Food and Wines

I am on a ride at Caballadas and  momentarily stunned. I find myself on rocky ground tangled in sparse grass, sprawled out between the stones, under thorny scrub trees. But let’s back up. Experienced trail riders know that if you have to go under a thicket of low trees, you should keep your head lower than your horse’s. When I saw the inevitable coming, I tried to flatten to my mount’s neck, but my riding helmet prevented me from doing so. This created a gap at the neck of  my jacket, which was immediately speared by a branch. I figured the best bet was to release the stirrups and roll off. “Are you O.K.?” Santiago cries as he races towards me on his young polo- pony-in-training.
