I was on an assignment in Toronto during the horrific van attack, and am still thinking about the victims of this senseless violence and their families. That afternoon, looking out from my hotel window towards the lake, the police officer who arrested the perpetrator without resorting to force was also on my mind.
I always say that non-violence is not the weapon of the weak. It is the weapon of the strong.
My recent trip to Denver, Colorado, took me from the transcendent architecture of the Denver Art Museum to Larimer Square. Okay, can I ooh and ahh enough about lunch at rioja..? Just a few doors down from where I’m standing here.
They call Denver the “Mile High City” for a reason.
My accommodation was situated at an altitude of 1,600 m and it took me (my head to be precise) about a day and a half to adjust.
From there it was smooth sailing. I even had some time and the opportunity to enjoy the people, vistas, food and climate here.
