Sidney and I decided that these exotic lands offered far too many other wonders for us to spend our limited amount of time there huffing and puffing at high altitudes. A sub-title for this program might have been "Adventures in the Himalayas without trekking". less

The original and most promoted Floating Market, Damnoen Saduak, is located 110 kilometres from Bangkok in Rachaburi province. Getting to the Floating Market takes between one and a half to over two hours from Bangkok depending on traffic conditions. Even though transactions are more concerned with tourists rather than locals these days, the floating market/boats are still piled high with tropical fruit and vegetables, fresh, ready-to-drink coconut juice and local food cooked from floating kitchens located right on the boat. less

The lodge is permanently cooled by the river breeze and the forest. The luxury tented camp sits on raised decks overlooking the brown river where the elephants sometimes make an appearance or the crocodiles come out to lounge by the river’s banks. Dry, rugged and stunning, Samburu’s landscape is at once stark and sensual, with its iconic loaf shaped Lolokowe Mountain and hills spreading in every horizon. Its life lung is the Usao Nyiro River coursing through its craggy terrain full of stone, thorn bush and the forked doum palms. In this arid zone where water is scarce and the land baked by the eternal sun, herds of elephants and the big cats roam the plains with the Samburu special - the Reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, Beisa oryx, Somali ostrich and the long necked antelope and the gerenuk.

In the middle of the reserve, the Ewaso Ng'iro flows through doum palm groves and thick riverine forests that provides water without which the game in the reserve could not survive in the arid country. The Samburu National Reserve was one of the two areas in which conservationists George Adamson and Joy Adamson raised Elsa the Lioness made famous in the best selling book and award winning movie "Born Free". There is a wide variety of animal and bird life seen at Samburu National Reserve. Several species are considered unique to the region, including its unique dry-country animal life: All three big cats, lion, cheetah and leopard, can be found here, as well as elephants, buffalo and hippos. Other mammals frequently seen in the park include Olive baboon, gerenuk, warthogs, Grant's gazelle, Kirk's dik-dik, impala, waterbuck, Grevy's zebra, Beisa oryx and reticulated giraffe. Rhinos are no longer present in the park due to heavy poaching. There are over 350 species of bird. These include Somali ostrich, grey-headed kingfisher, sunbirds, bee-eaters, marabou stork, tawny eagle, bateleur, vulturine guineafowl, yellow-necked Spurfowl, lilac-breasted roller, palm nut vulture, red-billed hornbill, secretary bird, Verreaux's eagle, superb starling, yellow-billed hornbill and vultures. The Ewaso Ng'iro river contains large numbers of Nile crocodile. less

According to legend it was where the Gods gathered to plan the creation of man. Construction of Teotihuacán commenced around 300 BC, with the Pyramid of the Sun built by 150 BC. The city reached its zenith approx. 150--450 A.D., when it was the center of an influential culture. At its height the city covered over 30 square km, and housed a population of as many as 200,000. The central avenue is called "Avenue of the Dead". The city contained palaces, apartment buildings, a marketplace, huge pyramids and temples used for worship. Teotihuacán was a place of pilgrimage in Aztec times, who identified it with the myth of Tollan, the place where the sun was created. Around 750 A.D., much of the city was burned, possibly during an invasion or a rebellion. less
