robertogreco : staycation   2 Outside Lies Magic: Regaining History and Awareness in Everyday Places (9780802775634): John R. Stilgoe, John Stilgoe: Books
"What lies along the highway, just out of sight? How about behind that building? Or under the street? Most of us muse idly about such things as we take our walks or drive our cars, but only a few go further and explore the secret histories of the places where we live. Landscape historian John R. Stilgoe is one of these intrepid explorers; for years he has taught Harvard students to open their senses to the created environment we share, to gently dissect our neighborhoods and public spaces for the knowledge hidden in plain sight. In Outside Lies Magic, he lets us all in on these wonderful secrets."

Quo vadis guiri? Get on the bus with mycitytrip!
"Mi amigo Marco nunca coge el autobús, dice que es el medio de transporte menos accesible para alguien que viene de fuera. Y no me extraña. Para utilizar el bus tienes que, además de tener tiempo o ser tu única opción, conocer la ciudad con cierta soltura. Nada ha aprendido el bus del metro con sus planos y sus paradas bien señaladas en los recorridos, en los andenes y en el interior de los vagones.
