The Magnificent Tetrapod

The installation of tetrapod walls around much of Male' saved it from the huge potential devastation of the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004. Tetrapods are concrete blocks with four fat legs, each approximately 1m long, sticking out like the four corners of a tetrahedron. These blocks can be stacked together in rows and layers so they interlock together to form a wall several metres high, looking like a giant version of a child's construction toy. A tetrapod breakwater has gaps that allow sea water...

Indo Fijian History Culture

Indo Fijian Music

An Indo-Fijian, Clement Paligaru came to Australia in 1984. He has reported extensively on the Pacific region forthe Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Today's Indo-Fijians are among some 10 million descendents of indentured Indian labourers who live outside India. It would be hard to imagine Fiji without Indo-Fijians. With enterprise and resilience, they have forged a presence that permeates throughout the country. Despite mostly being the descendants of indentured labourers who arrived in...

Is There Motor In Mali To Algeria

Algeria has land borders with Tunisia, Libya, Niger, Mali, Mauritania and Morocco. At the time of writing many of Algeria's borders were closed to tourists and the only possible crossings were at Taleb Larbi and Souq Ahras with Tunisia, In Guezzam with Niger and Deb Deb with Libya. On arriving at the border you will normally fill out an immigration card and a currency declaration form and get a passport stamp. If you're driving you'll also fill out a registration form for your vehicle and buy...

The Ring of Fire and the Pacific Ocean

Mexico Popocatepetl Volcano Ring Fire

Volcanically speaking, this is the Earth's busiest side. The volcanoes that mark the Ring of Fire - over 1,000 of them - are located in no fewer than four continents and span a wide variety of scenarios, climates, and cultures (Fig. 1.2). A good starting point for our journey is the scenic North Island of New Zealand, one of the world's prime volcanic areas. This is where the most violent eruption in historical times took place the Taupo eruption of AD 186. What we know about this cataclysmic...

Inside The Seedy Sextourism Trade

In recent years an alarming number of tourists are visiting Mexico not for the beaches and booze, but for the brothels. As if this weren't bad enough, now Mexico is being used as a bridge to bring sex slaves, often underage, into the US, Japan and other developed countries, according to reports by Reuters. Depending on what news source you look at, there are as many as 5000 child sex slaves in Mexico - calling them prostitutes just makes it sound too much on the up-and-up. The age of consent...

Got Drugs Will Travel

Drugs are plentiful in Costa Rica, and a good number of tourists would never give a second thought to lighting up a joint on the beach (or, more recently, blowing a line of coke in a discotheque). However, drugs are 100 illegal in Costa Rica, and if you are charged with possession you can be fined and imprisoned depending on the severity of the offense. There are currently foreigners serving out terms, and occasionally a big drug bust will make the headlines. The bad news is that there is...

Directness and Assertiveness

Americans, as we've said before, generally consider themselves to be frank, open, and direct in their dealings with other people. Let's lay our cards on the table, they say. Or, Let's stop playing games and get to the point. These and many other common expressions convey the Americans' idea that people should explicitly state what they think and what they want from other people. Americans usually assume that conflicts or disagreements are best settled by means of forthright discussions among...

Climbing Mount Hanang On Your

The volcanic Mt Hanang (3417m) rises steeply above the surrounding plains about 180km southwest of Arusha. It's Tanzania's fourth-highest mountain, with a satisfying trek to the summit, but few visitors know of its existence. The surrounding area is home to a colourful array of ethnic groups, including the Barabaig, who still follow a traditional seminomadic lifestyle and are recognisable by their goatskin garments. Over the past few decades, they have been displaced from some of their lands by...

Spirituality the Occult

To a large extent, Puerto Rico is more a spiritual nation than a religious one, with lingering belief in spirits worshipped by Taino and African ancestors - like the Taino spirit Jupias, who haunts the dreams of mortals. Curanderos or espiritistas (healers) are consulted regularly on the subjects of money and marriage, health and happiness, blessings and revenge, to name a few. Bot nicas, the stores that supply herbs and potions essential to Puerto Rican spiritual rituals, can be found in...

Hiking In The Uluguru Mountains

The Uluguru Mountains rise up from the plains just southeast of Morogoro, dominating vistas from town. Part of the Eastern Arc chain, the mountains contain some of Africa's oldest original forest plus a wealth of birds, plants and insects. These include many unique species, such as the Uluguru bush shrike. The only comparable mountain-forest area in East Africa, as far as age and endemism are concerned, is the Usambara Mountains (p168). The main tribal group in the Ulugurus are the matrilineal...

Antiques and collectibles

Palazzo Frescobaldi Vintage Map

Antiques hounds should make a beeline for Via dei Coronari, Rome's main artery for antiquar-iato. The jumbled assortment of marbles at Marmi Line includes some remarkably faithful copies of Roman portrait busts, fountains, and a whole lot of pointless accent pieces that might have been lifted from the set ofAll My Children. W Apolloni, specializing in silver and 17th-century furniture, is one of Rome's best-known antiques stores. If you're looking for collectibles from the 20th century or Art...

Cape Crawford To Barkly Homestead

This desolate route follows the Tablelands Hwy due south from Cape Crawford to Barkly Homestead, passing just one station along the way. Note that no fuel is available along this 375km stretch. Brunette Downs Station ( 8964 4522 Tablelands Hwy), 245km south of Cape Crawford, covers just over 12,000 sq km. It is accessible by conventional vehicles with care. This station would be no different from any other in the region if it wasn't for the Brunette Downs Bush Races, held in June each year. A...
