Chihuahua: Take a stroll down memory lane in Batopilas

By Anita Draycott

Batopilas, a small town nestled in the Western Sierra Madre at the bottom of a cliff has tales to share. It’s home to beautiful plazas and bridges built of rope and river rocks, but the main surprise is a beautiful aqueduct built in the 19th century.

Walk its streets and Batopilas will reveal stories about the discovery of silver deposits and its glory days during the Porfirio Diaz era when its most notable buildings were erected, such as the impressive City Hall, built around 1890 and the San Miguel and Shepherd Haciendas. Visit La Bufa mine, where the mining entrepreneur Alexander Robert amassed a fortune.

Saint Michael Archangel Temple is another emblematic building with a triple dome that dates back to the 17th century. To reach the temple, you need to travel 8 km on foot from the town to the Satevo Valley. It’s a bit of a hike but the views are worthwhile.

The warm climate of Batopilas is ideal for the tropical and semi-tropical vegetation. Expect to find orange, mango, avocado and papaya orchards. Likewise, it is not uncommon to find bougainvillea, tabachines and ceibas along the streets.

From La Bufa viewpoint, located in the surrounding area of a Tarahumara community called Quirare, you’ll get a fantastic view of the canyons, the Batopilas River and the minerals at La Bufa. Another viewpoint is Piedra Redonda, where you can admire the Banana Canyons.

Along the Batopilas River you can set up camp and take a refreshing dip. Close by, the La Bufa bridge, which crosses one of the canyon’s deepest sections. You will soon discover that Chihuahua, the largest Mexican state, has a multitude of charms, attractions and surprises.

That’s Entertainment in Myrtle Beach Myrtle’s plenty of theatre venues. read more

Sloshing around the Czech Republic

By Anita Draycott

Last summer my friend Margaret and I literally sloshed our way around the Czech Republic. If we weren’t steeping in thermal springs or sipping mineral waters, we were knocking back the country’s many liquid libations—from Slivovice to Absinthe to Pilsner. 
I should explain that Margaret, an expert on all things distilled and fermented, makes her living writing and opining on wine and alcohol. 
In the name of research we thirsty travellers began our jaunt about 180 km south of Prague in the fairy-tale town of Cesky Krumlov. Just before sunset we boarded a raft and for forty-five minutes our guide poled us along the Vltava River that loops through the medieval town’s impressive collection of Renaissance and  Baroque architecture dominated by splendid castle towers. 


Cesky Krumlov was established in 1253. After German occupation during World War II many gypsies came to live here. The vagabond spirit still pervades, especially at Cikanska Jizba, a lively bar when tourists and locals cavort and Diego the dog is a regular. It was here that I got my first taste of Absinthe, a green potion, flavoured with wormwood. It tastes like licorice and packs quite a punch. Legend has it that “The Green Fairy” was the tipple of choice of Oscar Wilde and that Ernest Hemingway penned For Whom the Bell Tolls under its influence.
Groggily, the next morning, Margaret and I hiked up the hill to visit the second largest castle in the Czech Republic. This rococo gem houses the best preserved Baroque theatre in the world, complete with original hand-cranked wind and thunder machines, sets, props about 650 costumes and candle-lit orchestra pit.


No doubt the second most popular place in town is the Eggenberg Brewery, established in 1560. After a tour and some free samples (they even make a beer for diabetics) we washed a substantial lunch of liver meatball soup, potato salad, schnitzel and strudel down with a tankard or two.


En route to the spa town of Marienbad, we made an obligatory pitstop in Plzen, home to Pilser Urquell’s Beer World. This is the place where in 1842 the golden lager that many have tried to copy, originated. The comprehensive tour culminates with more free suds.
When Bads are Good
With forty hot mineral springs, Marienbad (German) or Marianske Lazne (Czech) has been luring those who come to take the waters for centuries. Its illustrious visitors have included Russian and English royals, Freud, Chopin and Goethe. We arrived on Saturday night. To say it was dead would be an understatement; the casino reminded me of a funeral parlor.


However, on Sunday morning the town was full of well-slept seniors slurping the mineral waters from the various arcaded fountains. Margaret described the taste as “rusty pipe spiked with sulphur.” However, folks swear by the therapeutic powers of Marienbad’s springs and the its pristine forest-fresh air. A tour of some of the spa facilities revealed a mind-boggling array of treatments including cinnamon packs, carbon dioxide baths and injections, bowel cleansing, flasking and lymphodrainage. In case your purified body craves some toxins, I noticed cream puffs in a revolving refrigerated case, as well as cigars, cigarettes and bottles of booze on sale in one of the spa hotel reception areas.  Perhaps the most exciting entertainment to be found was a musical fountain in the centre of town that plays classical tunes every two hours.


The livelier spa oasis Carlsbad (German) or Karlovy Vary (Czech), about two hours from Prague, is beautifully situated on the Tepla River. Thanks to the fact that during the Communist regime there was no money to tear down the classic 19th century “wedding cake” Art Nouveau buildings and put up proletariat eyesores, the elegant architecture remains intact both here and in Marienbad. 
Carlsbad’s twelve natural mineral springs are purportedly good for what ails you—from gout to obesity. As in Marienbad, folks taking the “cure” slosh around this Bohemian town’s four drinking pavillions filling their spouted cups with the thermal gold. The spout allows you to sip the water without staining your teeth. Rush hour occurs about one hour before mealtimes.


Fearful that too much of the sulphurous waters would have purging effects, we decided to indulge in some spa treatments. First we soaked up to our necks in a bubbling tub redolent of rotten eggs. Then came the massage, a half-hour pummeling by a brick of a woman lacking what I’d call people skills. The Czech’s have not adopted the North American concept of spa as place to be pampered. Also keep in mind that Eastern Europeans are blasé about nudity so it’s not uncommon to find yourself in a sauna or hot tub with “members” of the opposite sex. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!


Margaret with her inquenchable thirst for new libartions decided we should find a drinking establishment and order Carlsbad’s locally produced Becherovka liqueur. If I thought the Absinthe was awful, this bitter brew, with hints of clove and cinnamon, was brutal. It was originally invented by Josef Becher, a Carlsbad pharmacist, to relieve stomach ailments. 


To her credit, Margaret consulted some locals and they suggested it was best downed in one quick swallow followed by a pint of piva (Czech for beer). Many demonstrations of Becherovka bravura followed. Somewhere along the line, we found ourselves dining with these merry Czechs. When I suggested the meal was sitting rather heavily in my gut, a new cure was procured from behind the bar. Slivovice, yet another national treasure, is plum brandy designed to digest the heaviest of duck and dumplings. 

Get Intoxicated with the Beauty and Charm of Antigua, Guatemala

It is not surprising that the city of Antigua is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is one of the most beautiful cities in Central Africa and contains colonial churches, and ruins of 18th century baroque style monuments and buildings that are well preserved.

Surrounded by three large volcanoes that dominate its horizon, Antigua is 1500 meters above sea level and is blessed with a temperate climate. It has about 40,000 inhabitants, majority of who are involved in the agriculture and tourism industry. The city has suffered from floods, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions throughout its existence but still remains as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Guatemala. The city is located about 15 miles from the capital city of Guatemala, where you can take the bus or car to Antigua.  La Aurora International Airport is about an hour away and is served by a number of international carriers.

Antigua is a city where you can relax, take a stroll along its cobbled streets, have coffee in one of the cafes that face the plaza, and take your sweet time visiting its attractions. Its top attractions include ChocoMuseo,  Acatenango Volcano, Pacaya Volcano, Casa Santo Domingo, Arco de Santa Catalina, Church of San Francisco, Antigua Tabaco Compania, Convento de las Capuchinas, Museo Casa del Tejido, and Cerro de la Cruz. If you have a few more days to spend in the city, why not take Spanish lessons in its numerous language schools. Love the outdoors? You can go volcano hiking or mountain biking.

Antigua will fill your days with lots of activities and sights to visit. Call your travel agent and book a trip to the city that will captivate your heart and soul. 

Roswell, New Mexico, the favorite city of Sci-fi, Extraterrestrial and UFO aficionados

If you are a Sci-fi, Extraterrestrial and UFO aficionado, you will be very familiar with the city of Roswell and why it is often called the “Alien Capital of the World”.

The city of Roswell was founded in 1869 by a professional gambler named Van C. Smith who named the town after his father, Roswell. It has more than 48,000 inhabitants and covers a total area of 29.9 square miles. It main industries include farming, ranching, dairying, manufacturing, and petrol production. The city might not be a vacation hotspot for regular travelers but tourists who are interested in mysteries and extraterrestrials will find the city to their liking. It has its share of attractions including the Bottomless Lakes State Park, Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge, Historical Center for Southeast New Mexico, Roswell Spacewalk, Walker Aviation Museum, and the Downtown Historic District. Roswell can be accessed by bus or car, and if you would rather fly into the city, the Roswell International Air Center, your gateway to Roswell, is served by American Airlines, Express Jet, US Airways, and Baron Aviation Services. It is located six miles from the heart of Roswell.

The 1947 Roswell UFO incident, wherein a surveillance balloon crashed at a ranch near the city which prompted claims of an alien spacecraft crash with alien survivors, made Roswell the mecca for tourists who are interested in mysteries and extraterrestrials. Conspiracy theories and alleged sightings which churned books, movies and TV shows are the reasons why the city is called the “Alien Capital of the World”. The International UFO Museum and Research Center is a must visit for those who are interested to learn more about the incident and aliens in general. It was established in 1992 and features exhibits regarding the Roswell Incident, UFO sightings, Area 51, crop circles, ancient astronauts, and abductions. You can also join the Roswell UFO Festival, held every 4th of July weekend, which features n Light Parade, a 5K/10K Alien Chase Run, Alien Costume Contest, Alien Pet Contest, and lots of food, beverages, vendors, and live entertainment.

A trip to Roswell will answer all your alien-related questions or pique your interest about extraterrestrials. Consult your travel agent for more information about the “Alien Capital of the World”.

Bermuda Shopping Spree

By Anita Draycott

Trimingham’s, Gosling’s and most of the big-name storeowners on Hamilton’s Front Street had pirates for ancestors. Nowadays, as my cab driver joked, “They don’t call it piracy, they call it tourism.” But there are bargains to be found. Look for half-price deals on cashmere sweaters. For classic Bermuda shorts and knee-highs, the English Sports Shop has every colour combination. Yes, Bermudian gents do sport the shorts and socks with tie and blazer as proper business attire. Buy Gosling’s potent Black Seal Rum and ginger beer so you can concoct Bermuda’s national cocktail, the dark ’n stormy, on your patio back home. A dash of Outerbridge’s Original Sherry Rum Peppers Sauce spices up seafood chowder.

The History of Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mexico.

One of the most visited Catholic shrines in the world, the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe is where you can commune with God and refresh your soul. Millions of Catholics from all over the world come to the Basilica to worship, praise and give thanks.  

The new Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe is located north of Mexico City, about 8 kilometers from the heart of the city. The old basilica was constructed in an unstable land and was sinking, so a new and modern basilica was constructed. Although the old basilica was repaired, it was turned into a perpetual adoration. The new Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a magnificent structure which can accommodate 50,000 people. It features 9 chapels on the upper floor, and 15,000 niches and 10 chapels under the main floor. Its seven front doors symbolize the seven gates of eternal Jerusalem.

It was on the dawn of December 9, 1531 that Juan Diego, an Indian convert, who was passing Tepayac Hill, heard a voice calling out to him. The voice was that of the Blessed Virgin Mary who spoke to him in his own native tongue. This was followed by 4 more apparitions, the last of which, was when a beautiful colored portrait of the Blessed Virgin appeared in the coarse fabric of Juan’s mantle. The Blessed Virgin then told Juan that her image was to be known as "Santa Maria de Guadalupe".

Today, the portrait still remains fresh and beautiful. Feel the presence of the Blessed Virgin at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
