The Purple Cabs of Burgeoning Baku For cosmopolitan travelers discovering Baku, capital of Azerbaijan, for the first time, seeing a London Fairway cab zip up to the curb some 2,500 miles from its native habitat provokes wonder, nostalgia and more than a little delight. The once-ubiquitous London Fairway cabs that drove in last yearOs nostalgic closing Olympic ceremonies are now winding down a 65-year run on the crowded streets of London.

South Africa: The Artists of the Wine Country Mike von GuilleaumeOs mission with his tour company MVG, a specialty operator that works in partnership with South African Airways Vacations, is to introduce creators to the appreciators. And as he introduced me to artists and winemakers, it was hard to pinpoint a clear boundary between them. The creators of wine, the real devotees to the craft and lore of winemaking, are certainly artists in their own media. Certainly the winemakers share most of the defining traits of the artists. They are fiercely passionate. How else could they possibly sustain the monumental labor, tedium and patience required to produce wine?
