Why Brazilians are always late

I still cringe when I remember the evening I arrived on time to a house party in Rio de Janeiro. Three months after I moved to Rio from Manchester, I was invited to a Saturday night churrasco – an informal barbecue – by a casual acquaintance with whom I’d crossed paths socially enough times that a friendship had begun to develop.

Wrapped in a towel and dripping wet from the shower, she gestured at the...

The German city beloved by Chinese

It’s easy to understand why Germany’s oldest city attracts so many tourists. After all, Trier, a former capital of the Roman Empire, is home to the largest number of Roman ruins outside Rome, while the surrounding vineyards produce some of the country’s finest wines. But for the roughly 150,000 Chinese who visit every year – more than any other German destination – Trier’s legacy as the birthplace of Karl Marx is the main draw.

In Thanjavur city, in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu, street markets are flooded with a particular type of bobblehead toy. It is known in Tamil as the Thanjavur Thalaiyatti Bommai, literally meaning The Head Shaking Doll of Thanjavur.
