“Yesterday, the 19th-century market building in London’s Covent Garden was transformed. French artist Charles Pétillon used twenty-five workers over five days to fill the building with 100,000 giant white balloons in an installation called “heartbeat.” The project is part of Covent Garden’s ongoing cultural program that strives to transform the district into an ever-changing art gallery, and will run until September 27th.”

Hoi An, Vietnam


“Hội An is a city on Vietnam’s central coast known for its well-preserved Ancient Town, cut through with canals. The former port city’s melting-pot history is reflected in its architecture, a mix of eras and styles from wooden Chinese shophouses and temples to colorful French colonial buildings, ornate Vietnamese tube houses and the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge with its pagoda.”
