This article may go a little off topic not because it won’t be related to the niche of the website but the limitations of foreigners to visit one of the most beautiful places on this planet. The other day my friends were making plans for going to “Fairy Meadows”. I wasn’t sure of this place until I searched it on Google maps and did a little research.

Fairy Meadows is like a heaven on earth and it is located in the heart of Exotic North Pakistan. It truly is the place of outstanding beauty with breathtaking view of Nanga Parbat, the second highest in Pakistan and the ninth highest in the world.

In a stunning turn of events, crews from British Airways voted to strike during the busiest travel season of the year. Announced today, Monday December 14, the announcement will affect all British Airways flights from December 22 until January 2. Amazingly, over 90% of Unite’s 13,500 union members approved the strike.

The issues at hand are changes to contracts, potential job cuts, and a proposed freeze on pay hikes. The company is quick to mention that 2009 has been one of the most difficult in recent memory for the aviation industry, and will probably remain difficult in the near future. In addition, British Airways employees are quite well paid when compared to one of their main competitors Virgin Air. By comparison, British Air employees earn on average of 25-33% more.

What’s for dinner tonight? Volume 1: Risotto

By

Other than traditional Italian pasta, risotto is one of the most recognizable Italian dishes. There really is nothing quite like a perfectly made risotto. The creamy texture of risotto is often times mistaken for a dairy product when in fact it is not. Risotto is a fairly complicated dish to make and can really challenge a chef to make it properly.

The first step in making a risotto is picking a rice to use. Although you can use several different types of rice, Arborio rice is the traditional and best rice to use for risotto. The starch content of Arborio rice is what allows the risotto to thicken as well as stay creamy. Luckily risotto is such a popular dish that Arborio rice can be found at practically every grocery store in the country.
