SchoolBOX — 100 Classrooms and Counting

It’s a dream come true in more ways than one: For SchoolBox, the Canadian-based non-profit organization with a mandate of “Making Education Possible” by way of building schools and providing educational materials to poor children in Latin America, this will be a milestone build as this project marks their 100th classroom— a dream that started just 10 years ago with a notebook and a pencil. For the local community of El Caracol their...

What To Do when Visiting the Toronto Christmas Market

We decided to venture out into the city on a balmy late fall night last week to check out the much hyped about Toronto Christmas Market.

Aaaand…we’re back

After a rather long hiatus– where we took the time to pursue other paths– we come back to you, our dear and rather neglected readers, hoping to keep bringing you some of the good stuff we have been bringing you for over five years now, but this time with a more re-focused and succinct perspective. There’s a saying in Spanish that goes “El Que Mucho Abarca Poco Aprieta”, loosely translating into either “Don’t...
