An invaluable icon in the world of filmmaking, Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock was a pioneer in suspense films and psychological thrillers. His body of work — quite distinct in terms of directorial style and themes used — spans more than half a century and over fifty feature films.

And today, August 13, marks the 114th year since the birth of this genius. Happy birthday, my good Sir!

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
