A Tea Lover's Paradise

Yunnan Tea Forest

Tea in Asia has long been used as a cure-all: a deodorizer, a moderator of blood sugars, a liver and kidney cleanser, a diuretic, a detoxifier, a bowel cleanser, and a vegetable compound with more fluoride than any other plant matter on Earth. But tea has also been Asia’s beverage of choice for more than a millennia. For me—long an addict to the green—the journey here is a very willing step into nirvana.

The Ancient Fossils of Fundy

Bay of Fundy Fossil Hunt

I’ve spent the past week on a road trip around the Nova Scotia side of the Bay of Fundy, visiting tiny communities from Parrsboro to Hants County, where I stand now, meeting people living in towns and villages a lot like these trees. Hanging on, surviving, despite a windstorm of change. There’s something inspiring about them, beautiful even, in the same way, perhaps, that the underdog is more compelling than the favourite.
