“The Commuters” is a sculpture -made by american artist George Segal- in the main hall of the Port Autority bus terminal in Manhattan since 1982. It shows 3 people – made of bronze and white patina- waiting for the bus, about to walk through an open door. Sculptor George Segal has high regards for commuters: “These are long-suffering people” he said in an 1982 People article.

Last summer, after visiting Bologna and Florence, I spent one night in Pisa. In the morning I walked over to Piazza die Miracoli and the Duomo. The freestanding bell tower of the cathedral is Pisa’s most popular landmark, commonly known as “The Leaning Tower”.

I just returned from a week long trip to Lisbon and Lagos, Portugal. The afternoons we spent at Praia do Porto de Mos and the walks along the beach to the adjacent Praia do Canavial were definitely my favourite moments of this trip. Even though I have first visited those two beach over 20 years ago and have come back many, many time since then, their beauty still amazes me everytime.
