Lake Natron’s natural beauty

Lake Natron’s natural beauty
I feel that tingling sensation creeping up my derriere, but I ignore it for now. I cannot move, not a millimeter, since I will lose the element of stealth and cover if I do. I am in a soda lake, and the silent reminders are to make a move on, but I refuse stubbornly and stay put. It is flamingo rush hour, and I have spent the better part of five hours convincing these pink feathery friends of mine that I mean them no harm and that I am not here at all. Gawky, a bit bumbling and beautifully regal, their extensible necks and pink plumage almost make me forget that my bottom is being subjected to soda burns. I bet Sir David Attenborough was never subjected to this. The flamingoes are used to the extreme alkalinity unlike my nether regions and they feed on the algae found in soda lakes spread  [...]

The phantom hotel
At the heart of the world’s most secretive society, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), is a sight that is almost entirely Frankenstein like in its scope, size and monstrosity. Pyongyang’s Ryugyong Hotel is definitely high up the list of the world’s ugliest hotels, and it is probably in with a very serious shot of winning. It’s the world’s 22nd largest skyscraper, and it’s got enough ugliness within its 105 storeys to be spread around the 21 buildings taller than it. It’s been vacant since 1992, when construction stopped and it will always stay that way, it’s grotesque form trapped in time. Getting into North Korea is hard enough as it is, and DPRK’s problems are as well documented as they can be for a society so shut to the world. But what cannot be hidden  [...]

Bora Bora Beckons….Where Art Thou?
At times I find myself being possessed by Mr. Bean. And what’s so wrong with Mr. Bean also if the names of places were such that you would just want to go on repeating them like a moron again and again. Now take for example – Rabo. And now keep saying that name a million times to yourself. Like not slowly…go fast and there will be the place of your dream vacation spot. So, yes…go Rabo – Rabo – Rabo – Rabo – Rabo - Rabo – Rabo - raBO – bo-RA – Bora – Bora – Bora. Woah, yes that it is! The very first image to weave on someone’s mind would that be of a sultry spot nestled right in the heart of the Pacific. Well, am not on any honeymoon before you might think so. Like stereotypes are a little hard to put with at times. And one such false notion attached with the Bora  [...]

The Machu Picchu doppelganger
If you were to talk about Peru and lost civilizations that are visited by people the world over, the first name mentioned by anyone worth the stamp on their passport is that of Machu Picchu. The tragedy, however, is that no one knows of the “other” Machu Picchu that far many hikers are now preferring. We are talking about Choquequirao, literally meaning “The Cradle of Gold” and this is a trail that is wild and feral, untamed by time and loved by hikers for its remoteness and distance from the commercialism and popularity of Machu Picchu, its more celebrated cousin. Located in Southern Peru, this Incan city’s remoteness is its strength as the few that do make it here are treated to a world trapped in time and far from the madding crowd. In structure and style, it bears a markedly  [...]

Trotting to Tanzania
Think of Tanzania, Think of Safari. This synonymous approach strikes nine out of ten people (you were one of them, weren’t you?) In the whole of Africa, animal habitat over here is the best than anywhere else. Nestled in the southern part of Kenya, Tanzania is known for its natural beauties and variedness. The cultural vibrancy of this exotic destination spans from the woods of the animal kingdom, the tribal folks inhabiting small villages to the leading urban parts of Tanzania. This cultural amalgamation spread over the shiny and the rugged parts of Tanzania attributes the experience to be so unique and intriguing in its own ways. Tanzanian Safari Sprees Visiting Italy and miss the Leaning Tower of Pisa? Naa! Visting India and miss the Taj Mahal? Naa! So, how can one visit Tanzania and miss  [...]
