Daughters of the American Revolution, España Chapter: "Patriot´s Day -- September 11th -- is the moment to get together for a remembrance ceremony 17 years after the 9/11 attacks. But as the Day falls on a Tuesday it is more practical for all those who could accompany us to meet on Sunday the 16th. As in previous years, we will meet at the Parque Juan Carlos I - at the site where the American Embassy planted 10 red oaks brought from the US on the 10th anniversary of the attack on the Twin Towers."

Cuba has a rich dance history that goes beyond its famous exports: salsa, rumba and cha-cha-cha. On a Road Scholar trip, we were treated to the traditional, popular and contemporary dances performed by dancers of all ages in different settings. One such treat was a demo by the award-winning Havana Queens, an independent dance company that celebrates Cuba's African and Spanish roots and whose YouTube videos are dazzling. Cuba dances!

Yukata! That’s the traditional Japanese summer get-up. It’s kimono but more casual. Less elaborate. It makes for great comfort. And Japanese outfitters say it makes women look particularly beautiful.

“A Poet in New York” still resonates in the Big Apple. Imagine my surprise when I got off the subway in Bushwick, a depressed Brooklyn Latino neighborhood, and discovered a mural with stanzas from “Sleepless City (Brooklyn Bridge Nocturne)." "Yerma" recently finished a sold-out run in an acclaimed contemporary adaptation at the Park Avenue Armory, 67th Street. Ballet Hispánico's New York Season honored the playwright with two World Premieres
