Bol Renversé (or upside down bowl). This Sino-Mauritian dish consists of fried egg at the bottom of a bowl. Then the bowl is lined with chicken or pork stir-fried with oyster sauce, soy sauce, and vegetables, topped with rice, and patted down. The bowl is inverted onto a plate and uncovered to reveal a one-bowl dish.
Mauritius has only had settlers on its soil for about 400 years, but many different cultures have contributed to the country’s culinary history, bringing with them different flavors and foods. Flavors are abundant in Mauritius, not only because of the diverse group of people who settled here, but also because the island was strategically located along the Spice Route. // photo Kirsten Alana Larsson

Shrimp with red curry and brûlée pineapple. Lima, Peru.

Peruvian cuisine is probably best known for ceviche - a citrus-marinated seafood dish. But, the country's landscape is much more than coastline and rivers, and its food is much more than fresh fish. Ingredients like corn, cocoa, chilies, and potatoes were grown here and eaten long before the days of the Incan Empire. Over the last 500-years these locally grown crops and ancient cooking styles mixed with the different cooking traditions of immigrants from around the world.
First, Spanish settlers brought their style of cooking to Peru in the 16th century. With them came African slaves, and later, immigrants from Japan, China, and other parts of Europe. Each group added their own flavors and traditions to create a unique style of cooking. // photo Jenny M Buccos

Bhel: Puffed rice with fresh pomegranate, tomato, onion, lime, tamarind, mint.

It's no secret that one of the best ways to learn about a place is through its food. Recipes that are characteristic of a certain place will usually contain ingredients that are locally grown and cultivated.  Flavors and methods for cooking will also reflect local traditions.  In places where multiple countries have influenced the existing culture, it is not uncommon for recipes to fuse influences from these different places. // photo Jenny M Buccos

In 1916, before the hacienda system began its rapid decline, the Yucatán had more than 200 factories for processing henequén. In the 1950s, with the invention of synthetic fibers, henequén production came to a virtual standstill. Today, there are fewer than 20 factories that produce henequén. Located southeast of Mérida, Hacienda Sotuta de Peón has been restored to look and operate as it did circa 1900; not only in its restored architecture but with its fully operational henequén production line. // photo by Jenny M Buccos

Henequén is a fiber that’s harvested from leaves of agave plants and is used to make rope and twine. From cutting the spiky, fleshy leaves of the agave plant to the bale press, this multi-step process of turning plant to product has only slightly evolved since the 19th century.  Henequén is also called sisal, which comes from the name of the Yucatán port from which the henequén was often shipped out. Workers gathering the boxes of henequén in other countries saw the stamp “Sisal” and mistook the port’s name for the product inside. // photo by Jenny M Buccos

Agave plants for henequén production at hacienda Sotuta de Peón. Yucatan, Mexico.
The word hacienda has dual meaning: it refers to an estate or large tract of land, and also to a factory, plantation, or mine that is located on said large estate. While haciendas in México date as far back as the 16th century, they flourished from the 1800s to early 1900s. Sotuta de Peón’s primary focus was the production of henequén. // photo Jenny M Buccos

So HOW exactly does one prepare to travel with little ones?!💆🏾‍♀️ First you need to without a doubt KNOW this what you want to do! Next, you #planahead. For one, it’ll help keep your cost low and if your anything like me. I like to save money for experiences and won’t typically by things that hold any value, one of those things being #toys. Kids get so bored of them so easily and they want your #time, not a bunch of toys they’ll end up breaking or just get plain bored of! So there, that’s how it starts!!! The hunger to see the world and #planner to start #budgeting and keep tracking of what it is you want to do on your #adventure, when you’ll go, and so fourth. I hope this helps someone else #taketheleap, because #ifnotnowwhen #travelingincolor #kidfriendly #planahead #budget #setuourgoals #beflexible #startsomehwere #justdoit #dontplayitsmall #playitsmart #travelingkids #worldaddict #manifestingdreams #planner #budgetmoney #minimalist #minimalism #travelingchildren #projectexplorer #passportstamped #signsealeddelivered #childhoodgames #childhoodmagic #singlemomma

25 yr old Wilfred Messine was working during the 2010 quake when a wall caved in on top of him. His femur shattered. In April 2010, Wilfred was fitted with a prosthetic limb. Today, he is Project Medishare’s prosthetic technician in training and is captain of the soccer team. // photo from ProjectExplorer.org, 2011.

today, we remember the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti eight years ago. Less than 24 hours after the earthquake, Project Medishare set up a field-trauma hospital on the grounds of the Port-au-Prince airport. They were the first foreign doctors to arrive post-quake. One year later, when our director Jenny Buccos visited, 650 patients were seen in the permanent hospital structure. // photo from ProjectExplorer.org, 2011.

Seoul is located in the northwestern part of South Korea. The city is cut in half by the Han River which was previously used as a trade route to China and helped the city grow throughout its history. The Han River is no longer used for navigation, however, because its estuary is at the border between North and South Korea. // photo Jeonguk Ha

Gwanghwamun Gate. Seoul, South Korea. Construction of the gate began in 1395 at the beginning of the Joseon dynasty. In 1592, the gate was destroyed during the Japanese invasion of Korea during the Imjin War. In 1867, the gate was reconstructed during the reconstruction of adjacent Gyeongbokgung Palace. During the Korean War, the wooden gatehouse was destroyed once again. It was rebuilt using concrete and remained this way until 2006. In December 2006, work began to restore Gwanghwamun to its original wooden specifications. text adapted from theseoulguide.com // photo by Timothy Reis

From massive conifers over 20 stories tall, to minute clumps of pink Douglasia prying a life out of rocky peaks, the Olympic Peninsula and Olympic National Park boast an amazing diversity of plant life. Over 1,450 types of vascular plants grow on the Peninsula, nearly the same number as the British Isles—an area 30 times larger. And, though they are not true plants, many types of fungi and lichens also grow in these habitats. text via nps.gov // photo by Natasha Shazana ( @nsal )

"With about 500 miles of Atlantic coast, Portuguese fishermen can find more than 200 different kinds of fish in the coastal shoals, from cold-water bass and grouper to huge tuna en route to spawning grounds in the Mediterranean. But the traineiras - small trawlers with wooden hulls and diesel engines - bring back smaller catch, such as gray bream, mackerel, octopuses and congers, and, above all, sardines!" The Portuguese consume, on average, 13 sardines per second. text adapted from NYTimes. // photo by Natasha Shazana @nsal

Portuguese pastéis de nata, or egg tart. The recipe for this creamy custard tart dates back to the 16th century, when the confections, like many other Portuguese sweets, were made by nuns in convents. Now, locals eat pastéis de nata at breakfast, in the midmorning, after lunch, or in the evening — any time they’re craving a snack. text adapted from Eater.com // photo by Natasha Shazana @nsal
