As someone who begins the day with newspaper comics followed by 30 or so online....thank you for this look at a place where "comics are serious!" I especially love the outdoor comics; my favorite above is the surprised gentleman leaving his house.

I must admit that this was one of my biggest surprises when visiting Belgium. One thinks of folks in Brussels as people who are obsessed with politics, because it's everywhere around them. I found wonderful, helpful, easy-going folks with a quirky love of their comics. Comics, as Travellinn's piece points out so well, are everywhere and a part of their national fiber. Thanks for sharing this piece!

How to get around Las Vegas

berry bory ·
If you are preparing a trip to the city of sin, you may already have wondered how transportation works in Las Vegas. Something that is not always taken into account the first time you visit Las Vegas is the great distance between hotels. And it is that, although it seems that everything is very close, the reality is far from that.

Great photos and info on that iconic sign! On my last trip to Las Vegas, I found that the city is a very interesting place to walk. Because the airport is so close to the strip, I even walked there for my return flight home. Amazing what a different perspective you get when walking.
