I spent quite a lot of time in Nepal in the 1990s participating in heritage conferences and for the UN Development Programme on a project to reduce poverty through sustainable tourism. I met hundreds of people. Here are some of the faces that need the world’s help now more than ever.
Adele Bloch-Bauer I or Woman in Gold by Gustav Klimt, 1907
I have been chasing a woman around the world and finally met her in New York. But the beautiful Adele Bloch-Bauer, popularized in the movie, “Woman in Gold” starring Helen Mirren, was now gazing at me as I gazed at her in her portrait in the Neue Galerie in New York City.
I grew up in cold climes and always looked forward to the winter’s first day of snow, when Krispy Kreme white covered everything from trees to trashcans. After that, not so much. But new snow on the first day of spring? That’s what happened in New York last week when I took a walk around the park….Central Park.
