I didn't know if I wanted to write about a city I've imagined or one I've actually been in. The last city I wished to travel to was Paris, but when I realized it was the Paris of the 1920's and 30's when writers--famous and still-to-be-published--could be found in all the cafes, I realized that I...

I live approximately one hour from my daily destination. Truth being, I live on a beach and my uni... well, it doesn't. So I have to get on a bus, then a train, then another bus, then walk to my classes. It's dreary and will most likely continue that way for some time yet. But the best thing about...

The cityscape comes out of the fog, hunched and low, it’s streets and signposts unsettled as we pass through town... the Three J’s ... the parking lots... the bridge so high it blocks the sun. The cityscape... people and concrete slung low in the saddle; its storied buildings laden with linoleum...

Before Helena set off on her trip somewhere, but nowhere in particular, her notebook just memoed, “Museums”and “Crepes”. She was prepared to walk great distances each day to ponder the sights and taste the delectable foods from the street vendors. She landed in Paris, and that’s where she stayed...

I recently returned from my third trip to New York City, and had such a fantastic time (again) that I feel compelled to blog for my first time about it. I've travelled some of the world, and still have more to see.  I've seen major cities across four continents, but New York City captures my heart...

My writing began in my hometown, a little suburban city called Depok, south of Jakarta. Altough my young mind did not realize it, i was born within a neighborhood of writers. A couple of blocks away was the house of famed poet W.S. Rendra, before he moved to Bengkel Teater in Citayam. Closer than...

It's a bit daunting to write an entry about why my New York trumps (pun slightly intended) the rest. One is truly standing on the shoulders of giants.   I lived there off and on from 1988 to ‘89 and again from 1993 to ‘99. I can't believe it's been ten years since I packed up and moved away...

We would like to think that our favorite cities are the beautiful ones. I live in San Francisco and I was born in Rio de Janeiro. What two cities could be more perfect for firing up the poetical imagination? Yet the city that inspires me to write is Reno, Nevada. I spent my high school years in a...
