Dali/Picasso Exhibit, Part 1

This weekend I stopped by the Salvador Dali & Pablo Picasso exhibit in Shenzhen, China. Being a Dali enthusiast, I spent five surreal hours getting lost in his work (with two much-needed breaks in between). The exhibit was truly immersive, not only showcasing mind-bending prints, portraits and sculptures, but including large-scale replicas of psychedelic sofas and melting clocks for one’s selfie pursuits. Since the collection was quite large, this post will be split into two parts. Enjoy!

Destination: Aesthetic Bliss

For the most part, international airports are associated with duty-free shopping and passengers rushing to their boarding gates. But sometimes, they can be associated with cultural identity and awe-inspiring beauty. Take this airport in Mumbai, India, decorated with historical relics and intricate mandalas. One stroll around its enchanting terminal could make you miss your flight.

Lost in a Cave’s Beauty…

Recently I traveled along what was once the Silk Road. Of course what remains doesn’t reflect the grandeur of ancient times, but with a little help from Google, a compass and friendly locals, I was able to locate a few gems (big ones!). Traveling from east to west, they are Maijishan, Mati Temple and the Mogao Grottoes.

Chivalry isn’t dead, only napping

I came across these sculpted wonders while meandering along a garden path. Each figure elegantly depicts a story of chivalry and unconditional love for one’s parents. Feeling deeply touched, I gave my thanks by bowing three times before their stony feet. Then I rode to the hotel, called my mom and told her how much I loved her.
