58 The Petersen File
Up until a few years ago, William Peterson was one of those actors you looked at and thought, “Hey, I’ve seen him somewhere before.” And you have, in such flicks as To Live and Die in LA and Manhunter and TV hits like “Return to Lonesome Dove.” Now, you’re more likely to say, “He’s the star of ‘CSI,’ the hit crime drama on CBS.” And he is, though part of him wishes he was still that other guy you didn’t quite recognize. Fame has not changed the football-loving Chicago native, however, except to give him a newfound interest in his show’s grisly subject matter — and a growing appreciation for his blue-collar roots.

Its identity once defined by boomerangs, kangaroos, and Paul Hogan movies, Australia is coming into its own as not only one of the world’s fastest-growing producers of great wine, but also as home to some of the finest golf courses in the Eastern Hemisphere. And, as our satisfied correspondent found, partaking of the grape one day and hitting the links the next makes for the ultimate vaca­tion Down Under... and not an Outback Steakhouse in sight.

66 Sunrise in San Andrés
There’s a nation southeast of the U.S. where the climate is ideally suited for top-quality wrapper, binder and filler, and they’ve been making cigars since the 1800s. Hint: It’s not Cuba. Battling prejudices born during the boom, the proud cigarmakers of Mexico’s San Andres Valley are working to change perceptions of their product the, only way they know how: a rededication to quality cigars. But will U.S. cigar smokers stand up and take notice?
