Top 10 Hotels in Los Angeles, California – Cancel FREE on most hotels

Los Angeles Hotels

With the Hollywood sign gleaming under a Californian sun, and open-topped supercars cruising down Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles is the most aspirational city on the planet.

Once you’ve snapped some pictures, you can get even more star-struck on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which stretches for 15 blocks

Being in lockdown in Paris during the coronavirus pandemic turned out to be the perfect time and place to devour Bill Buford’s new book Dirt.

Dirt: Adventures in Lyon as a Chef in Training, Father, and Sleuth Looking for the Secret of French Cooking was just the antidote to confining apartment walls and the daily tedium of my own pedestrian meals.

I’ve lived in Paris for 16 years and I’ve never read Buford. So I first feared Dirt might be yet another expat tale of moving to France en famille, with all its tedious clichés.

Most of the world is staying home these days due to the pandemic situation, and either working from home or just outright losing their mind and going stir crazy (or both). One of the consequences of these stay at home orders is the fact that we can’t leave the house except for essential businesses, such as getting food, supplies, medical attention, or if you’re an essential worker. So no entertainment, recreation, school, and even no gyms and fitness centers. So how is one supposed to get their daily exercise and physical activity in?

Well, if you have a Nintendo Switch, then you should definitely pick up Ring Fit Adventure (if you can find a copy). It’s the perfect workout game while you’re stuck at home, or even if you just don’t want to sign up for a gym membership in the first place. And as
