I love stories about journeys, real and otherwise. But I was stunned by the beauty of the descriptive language and photographs on this writers trip across Ethiopia. Highly recommend it...

The latest on the @EL_AL_AIRLINES flight attendant who fell ill from the measles after a flight from NYC to Israel: https://nyti.ms/2XmqWMz 

My latest. A sad reminder that the #measles vaccine isn’t 100% effective and so 2 vaccinations are recommended.

What was the upside for Cuomo to grant clemency to Judith Clark, convicted in the murder of 3 people in an armed robbery and paroled today after 38 years? Political self interest was to let her die in jail.Have we just witnesssd a principled act?

That may just look like a taco to you. But what I I told you it was a Kenyan taco? Nairobi is in the middle of a mania for things Mexican. https://nyti.ms/2DnmoOu

Hey @amyvirshup there was a reeeeallll nice press trip hosted by Jade Mountain earlier this month. Just sayin 🤷🏼‍♀️ https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/17/travel/hotels-sustainability-ecotourism.html …

Hey @celineboss, after your tweet, which implies that the writer of our story on sustainability and hotels went on a press trip to one of the hotels involved, I spoke both to the writer and the hotel and both confirm that she did not.
