Cristian Flores, Villa La Angostura, Neuquén Province

In each issue we share our favorite photos from ManAboutWorld’s peripatetic Global Correspondents. We occasionally highlight some of those here. Today we explore La Angostura, Neuquen, Patagonia (in Argentina) brought to us by Cristian Flores. In his words:

Villa La Angostura is located in the province of Neuquen, in the north of Patagonia Argentina. It’s a small town, surrounded by mountains and forests originating on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi.

You can visit throughout the year, depending on the activities you want to perform, from June to September you can ski, because here is a major ski resort. The months with the most heat are from December to March, you can navigate the lake, you can practice water sports, or enjoy a fishing day.

Trekking through the woods, shores of a lake, riding bicycles or walking, you can do throughout the year, just depends on your spirit of adventure.

Scott Holman-Kathmandu

In each issue we share our favorite photos from ManAboutWorld’s peripatetic Global Correspondents. We occasionally highlight some of those here. Today we explore Kathmandu, Nepal brought to us by Scott Holman. In his words:

One of my favorite shots from this trip. Kathmandu is all developing-nation chaos but it has these beautiful, colorful juxtapositions such as this popcorn seller and ice deliverer.

In spite of the craziness, Kathmandu is incredibly fascinating. Gorgeous temple districts, great food, lively street life all with a backdrop of the Himalayas. If you get the chance, have a meal on a rooftop restaurant where it all seems so much more peaceful.

Scott Holman, Barcelona Mies van der Rohe PavilionThe last section of our magazine is “Parting Shots,” which are photos taken by our Global Correspondents, subscribers and other friends who send us their favorite image relating to that month’s theme. Our April theme was architecture. Here’s the story behind one of our favorite pictures: the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona from ManAboutWorld friend, contributor, and graphic designer Scott Holman. If you already subscribe, download April from within the app. If you don’t subscribe, download the issue in the AppStore here.

After years of studying art history and design, I have a few iconic pieces/locations on my list of stuff to see in person. This Mies van der Rohe was originally designed and built for the 1929 International Exhibition, was disassembled right after and reconstructed in 1980. It has been on my list since art school days and it was exciting to see it live on a 50th birthday trip.

mexicoThe last section of our magazine is “Parting Shots,” which are photos taken by our Global Correspondents, subscribers and other friends who send us their favorite image relating to that month’s theme. Our April theme was architecture. Here’s the story behind one of our favorite pictures of the Museo Soumaya in Mexico from Global Correspondent Paul VanDeCarr.

The museum opened in March 2011, and I visited and took this photo in June 2011. On the inside are enormous white galleries divided up by movable walls, and some excellent pieces (and some not-so-excellent). But it’s the exterior that I really like. It’s got a honeycombed pattern of reflective glass on the outside, so fluid and organic-looking that I want to lick it or eat it. It was designed by Mexican architect Fernando Romero, and funded by another Mexican and the world’s richest man, Carlos Slim Helú — the museum is named after the latter’s late wife.

In every issue we bring you beautiful photos from around the world taken by our Global Correspondents. This gorgeous picture was taken by our São Paulo-based Rangel Vilas Boas. In his words:

This photo is from Patagonia, in Argentina and Chile. This is a picture of my beloved husband, Tomas Mosaner, during a trip to this wild region. In this trip we visited Fitz Roy, in El Calafate, Argentina; Torres del Paine, Chile; and Ushuaia, in Argentina, also know as Tierra del Fin del Mundo (Place of the End of the World, in a literal translation from the Spanish to the English).

By @ 11/13/12 in Africa, Gay travel, JuanCarlos Medina Gedler, ManAboutWorld, Marrakech, Morocco, Parting Shots, Travel

We received some amazing images for our Parting Shots section in the magazine (that’s the last section of ManAboutWorld featuring photos our readers send us based on a theme).

The theme was “Markets.”

The image above was sent to us by JuanCarlos Medina Gedler, a tireless curious world travel/documentary photographer (as well as one of our correspondents).

This Moroccan image of spices for sale in the medina were taken in Marrakech.  Other images (not shown here) portray many other goods such as hats and clothing laid out on the ground just outside walls of the souk by the merchants that can not afford to have an establishment inside the Medina at the souk. Also you can see many colorful fruit and vegetable carts around Marrakech pulled by donkeys.

Keep checking back this month for the stories behind the Parting Shots.
