Animals have good instincts for this sort of thing. If Michoacan is so special for them there must be a good reason. Unesco declared the butterfly Biosphere a World heritage Site Hosted by Roberto Mitrotti less

Grenada and Romance on CBS TV

Grenada is made up of three different islands, Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. Some of the Caribbean’s most gorgeous islands. You can grow practically anything in this fertile soil. For instance Sugar which was used for making rum to be shipped up to the cold north. But of course it’s the spices that put Grenada on the map. The French and British waged war in the 17th and 18th century over who controlled the island and it’s rich crops.., Ft. George, in the capital city was built by the Brits to protect their interests. But what do spices have to do with Romance you ask? A good question. Many of the spices grown here are valued for their aphrodisiac qualities. Take the odd- looking nutmeg. Scratch the surface of any nutmeg and there beats the heart of a mighty aphrodisiac. Excuse me if I seem a little nuts about nutmeg ... But The Compulsive Traveler is also a little obsessive. At Douglaston Spice Estate.... you can pick your own aphrodisiac. Here’s a wonderful combination. Nutmeg and beautiful girls. But what about... Cinnamon or Chocolate? Another celebrated aphrodisiac. Also grown here in Grenada. At the Belmont Estate you see the century-old way chocolate or cocoa beans were prepared for market...by dancing on them in huge copper pots. And this is the way the Big Drum dance, a traditional African Dance was kept alive over the centuries and is still reenacted today. Mix this with the local spices and you get an intoxicating dose of tropical sensuality. From the delicious fresh grilled lobster... To the heady fragrance of the flowers the island pleasures greet you everywhere Here on Carriacou, you see the direct link between spices, sensuality, romance, love and... you guessed it.... marriage. What could be a more perfect place for a wedding? The best part is you don’t have to go anywhere for your honeymoon. It’s all right here. A word of caution: don’t come to Grenada unless you’re prepared to have your passions ignited. (And go easy on the nutmeg.) less

The patrician families who controlled the town built around 72 tower-houses (some as high as 150 feet) as symbols of their wealth and power. Although only 14 have survived, San Gimignano has retained its feudal atmosphere and appearance. The town also has several masterpieces of 14th- and 15th-century Italian art. Every year a medieval festival takes place through the town. The historic center of San Giminiano has been declared by Unesco a World Heritage Site less
