The new Hawaii

Silicon Valley Tour
Why are Facebook, Google and Apple the new secular shrines?

A job like any other

Taxi driver, barber, or funeral director by day. Sicario (hitman) by night. In Honduras, life's easier with a second job, above all when a single payment can be up to 10,000 dollars. Naturally, it's not every day you get to remove a politician who's become a pain in the neck to the drug cartels or g more
The great thirst

An archaic and rural ritual that keeps generations together

Dhaka's invisible slaves
A roof in exchange for a life

Driven by the impossibility of taking care of their own children, Bangladesh's poorest families are the first link in an invisible chain of slavery that ties children to unscrupulous masters and denies them their fundamental rights.

Whether real or fake, relics of saints are powerful objects of worship

The sacred "grand tour" of Italy is the itinerary of Christian relics that extends from Rome throughout the entire peninsula.
