The mystery behind Greece’s temples

When I was a little girl, I would pester my grandfather with the same question every time we wandered the flagstone streets of Athens’ Philopappou Hill on a clear evening. I would wait until we had reached the 147m peak, with the Parthenon at eye level, to ask: “Why are the stars shining so brightly from here?” “Ancient Greeks were wise. They knew where to build their sacred venues,” my grandfather would say, unfazed by the annoying excitement in my voice. “These are places symbolising something greater than us.” View image of Some...

The truth behind New Orleans’ nebulous sandwich

The po’ boy is the most overrated sandwich on the planet. There, I said it. And now I can never go to New Orleans again, lest I want to get clubbed to death with day-old baguettes. Let me explain: I was in the Louisiana city two years ago, when I perched myself at the restaurant bar in my hotel and ordered a po’ boy, my first one ever. As I bit in, I noticed the bread was on the stale side and the fried shrimp was flavourless. The iceberg lettuce was flaccid and the tomatoes were mealy. The baguette had only a minimal amount of mayo, barely keeping me from feeling like I was...
