That is a Van Gogh oil on canvas depicting what he saw from his room at the Rue Lepic, Paris.

You can stay there too — at $60 a night. The room comes with all mod cons — but, statutory warning, it does not come with inspiration, and does not purport to help you paint the next masterpiece.

In passing, I once stayed at the same haveli that housed Somerset Maugham; William Dalrymple stayed there when he wrote City of the Djinns. Wonderful room, but I didn’t manage to scribble even a few lines on a postcard, for my trouble.

In terms of public art trails, some cities go cow, others go elephant, but in London, it’s all about the books — and book benches.
Dreamed up the National Literacy Trust and Wild in Art, the benches can be found in four different trails through Bloomsbury, Greenwich, Riverside, and City districts.

“Have you ever seen a snake so big?”

The man with a bouncing belly shouted at the crowd, directing the patrons’ eyes toward a massive waist-high fish tank. Above him a sign warned that photography was “strictly forbidden.” Entombed in glass, a bright yellow boa constrictor slithered slowly.

“Have you ever seen a snake so big?” he asked three squirming girls clutching sparkling cell phones.

“So powerful!” he exclaimed with a laugh, eyeing the men knowingly.

“Now, then,” he continued, “who’s hungry?!”

Taiwan is known for many things — the towering Taipei 101 skyscraper, excellent food, and being perpetually confused with Thailand. Among those three, it’s the food that sticks out the most. This is a country seriously proud of its cuisine. So proud, in fact, that nearly every single neighborhood has its own unique night market — a permanent community fixture that’s part carnival, part cafeteria.
