People of Guadalajara
and art have been recurring themes in Deb Roskamp's photographic
studies. In The People of Guadalajara, Ms. Roskamp explores
the relationships between the Mexican people and the great
plazas, cathedrals, architecture and sculptures of Guadalajara.
Considered to be the most Mexican of Mexico's cities, Guadalajara
has long been a favorite domestic tourist destination for
Mexican families. Ms. Roskamp captures the joy, excitement
and spirit of Mexicans as they experience the city's great
art, and thus become part of the artistic landscape themselves...

August of 2007, while Ms. Roskamp was enrolled in Spanish
language studies at IMAC.

Okay, Im going to Guadalajara.
It looks like a destination that Mexican tourists go to. Amazing
shots. Of course, Im a sucker for kids.
You certainly have an eye for photography. Sometimes
we stay in a place too long to appreciate the beauty that surrounds
us. Your photos show a visitor appreciating not only the sculptures
but the intermingling of the people around it. I believe sculptures
were meant to be experienced and I'm glad the Guadalajara government
opened this interaction instead of relegating these pieces in
a stuffy museum.
Would love to see more of your work.

Seeing kids playing on art: that's amazing. It's
what art and travel are all about. Thanks for capturing some pretty
striking images. These should be in a book.
The images are magnificent; I have only been to
Mexico on two occasions and would love to discover more of it.
Ill have to add Guadalajara to my long list of places to
Johann Chrysostom Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 - 1791)
could read and compose music, plus play the violin and piano, when he was
five years old. Born into a musical family in Salzburg, Austria (then the
Holy Roman Empire), he had a unique ability for imitating music, which first
became evident when he recited a musical piece by simply observing his father
conducting a lesson to his older sister. This led to a childhood on the
road, where the young prodigy performed before many of the royal courts

Treasures of Ireland: The Irish Goodbye (Dispatch
The Palladian Traveler brings to a close his 20-part
series on the Emerald Isle from an upscale restaurant in downtown Dublin
where he files his final dispatch and then quietly slips away.
The Han Grotto and Culzean Castle. As the name
of my Traveling Boy feature is "Travel With a Difference," it's
important to me to always bring you offbeat and unusual tourist places around
the world you may not know about. These two fit that category to a T, and
they're absolutely worth a visit. One's in Scotland and one's in Belgium.
Culzean (pronounced CULLANE) Castle is located near Maybole, Carrick, on
the Ayrshire coast of Scotland.

In the 1840s, the population of California was only
14,000, but by 1850 more than 100,000 settlers and adventurers had arrived
from all over the world and they came for one reason: gold. James
Marshall had discovered the first gold nugget at Sutters Mill in El
Dorado County, creating the largest gold rush in history.

The Southwest Louisiana Mardi Gras in Lake Charles,
the second largest in Louisiana, does not need parents there to avert their
childrens eyes. This is family entertainment and children are very
much part of it. The main office of the Lake Charles CVB has costumes from
last years Mardi Gras but it also has figures to fascinate little
ones from country boys fishing for their dinner to alligators who have already
fed and are rubbing their stomachs.

So I heard that you could spend from dawn to dusk on
the Malecon in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and never get bored and I thought,
"Okay, I'm up for that challenge." Well, maybe not the dawn part
I'm not a morning person so I had no problem leaving those
early hours to the joggers and those seeking an early start to catch their
red snapper for dinner.

Relaxing at The Inn at Laguna Beach
There is nothing like sleeping in an ocean-front room
and awakening to the sounds of waves crashing against the sand. It is
one of the finer things in life. And it is exactly what I experienced
recently on a memorable getaway to The Inn at Laguna Beach. The adventure
began when a friend I pulled off the 5 Freeway in Orange County and took
SR 133 south nine miles through winding lush hills and wilderness areas
to the ocean.
Tim Robbins On His Road To Stardom
Award-winning Tim Robbins began his career on episodic
television. Robbins' film work, however, is what catapulted him into becoming
a major movie star including "Bull Durham" and "Mystic
River" for which he won multiple awards. Equally at home behind the
camera, he directed the riveting "Dead Man Walking." He is Founder
and Artistic Director of The Actors' Gang, which he formed thirty-five
years ago and has directed multiple provocative productions.
