Pura Vida in Costa Rica

After just 3 days in Guatemala, it was time to say goodbye to my family and get on a plane to Costa Rica, accompanied by a very sick Paula—I guess food poisoning strikes pretty much everyone sooner or later in Guatemala; fortunately, my stomach has become pretty tough after vomiting my heart out about a […]

A Brazilian Jungle—Made of Concrete

Even though I’ve been to some big cities during this trip—Chicago, Toronto, and Mexico City are all huge—São Paulo is different. In Chicago and Toronto, it’s the lakes that give you a feeling of space.

Hefeweizen History

This month, Alyson has brewed an age-old beer style straight from Bavaria: «hefeweizen», a weissbier. This wheat beer is characterized by its hazy light golden color and unmistakable aromas of bananas and cloves. Back in 1516, this style was both extremely popular in Germany and yet technically forbidden to produce according to a strict German […]
