South of Laguna Verde

EcoGui'as La Mancha (g 296-100-11-63 www.ecotur ismolamancha.com La Mancha-Acotpan campsites cabanas MS50 120) is a progressive association of locals who have developed a homespun, grass-roots environment education center. With their facilities a kilometer from the beach, they offer interpretive walks, birding excursions, apiary tours, horseback riding and kayak tours where you can see mangroves and wildlife. Accommodations are rustic, but it's a great off-the-beaten-path choice that supports the local community. From the La Mancha east-bound turnoff on Hwy 180, it's a kilometer down the road. Bring repellent.

Nikos The Designer Honey

Nafplio's contemporary honey man is not your elderly labourer with calloused hands. This man doesn't drive a bakaziera (the miniature trucks with tray, quite common in villages), and his shop is far from a tin shed with jars. This guy sports designer shirts (that's when he's not wearing a T-shirt with a bee print) and his other passions include his two TOOOcc motorbikes. His self-designed shop window features a huge wire hive dripping with giant bees and a beekeeper outfit (an all-white uniform which, apart from the long rubber boots, resembles an astronaut's attire). Inside, mirrored shelves hold lines of perfectly spaced jars. While Nikos currently has no children to whom he is passing on his knowledge, he is training up to 10 beekeepers in the traditional practices. 'It's very important that we keep this knowledge and tradition going in Greece. Our honey is like caviar - top of its class. This is not only important for the Greek economy, but also, we want people to experience the...

Shadows Of Forgotten Ancestors

Covered in climbing flowers, this rustic red-brick cottage sits on the Cheremosh River, and has a barbecue site, above-ground pool, sauna and private apiary. The bedrooms might be quite old-fashioned and dreary, but who cares when you can sample homemade Carpathian cuisine under the arbour

Pangani

The small, socially conscious Kisampa ( 0756-316815, 0753-005442 www.sanctuary-tz.com per person all inclusive US 220), set off on its own in a private nature reserve bordering Saadani park, has made impressive progress since its opening in promoting conservation of the surrounding Zaraninge Forest and supporting local community development. Village fees paid by each visitor go to the local community to support health, school and other initiatives, and a local beekeeping project aimed at poverty alleviation and environmental conservation has been established. There are six 'stargazer' tents, netted on three sides. Each tent has a mattress on the floor and private outside bathroom with hot-water bucket showers. Unlike the other Saadani camps, Kisampa isn't on the beach, although excursions can be arranged to the coast (about an hour's drive away), as well as into the park for wildlife-watching. If you have your own vehicle, you can drive from Bagamoyo as far as the Wami River, where...

Reminders

Farmstead and Europos Parkas (Europe Park), a unique site displaying over a hundred works of contemporary art from around the world. Or there's the Museum of Ethno-cosmology, a rare place indeed to discover how the pagan world viewed the sky and the stars in it. An observatory nearby is open to the public for spectacular stargazing on a clear night. Lithuania can also boast its very own Beekeeping Museum in the heart of the country's finest national park. Two treats for the price of one. In Kaunas, Lithuania's second city, the Ciurlionis Museum celebrates the life and work of the famous artist and composer. Hell, Lithuania even has its own Devil Museum. Visit that one at your own peril.

Muttontown Preserve

Win who died about a decade ago, was supervisor of Muttontown Preserve from 1968 to 1992. During that time, he developed hiking trails, prepared nature brochures, began insect and plant collections, recorded the changes in bird populations and taught the skills of birding to others. Frank Hurley, a beekeeper hobbyist, has stepped into his shoes. He'll bring in the beehive for anyone who asks, and walkers are welcome to join him and his volunteers on a trek through the magnificent preserve. We have a lot of fun here, he said. Monthly walks, held February through October, focus on geology, bird-watching and nature some are free and others have a 3 fee. Registration is required. The preserve and the center are open 9 30am-4 30pm, but Hurley is there part-time so make sure to call for a schedule of talks and walks.

Insects

Far more annoying are a much smaller bit of Mother Nature's fauna blackflies and mosquitoes, which can make being in the woods very unpleasant. Light-colored clothing attracts fewer insects than dark, and long sleeves and pants protect you better than any bug dope. Ask locals what they use, since each place has insects with different tastes. Our experience is that Natrapel, Muskoll or any of several local brands work much better than the scented cosmetic company repellents. In the spring or in deep woods and moist places, a beekeeper's helmet is the only hope of escape.

Kuaripass Trek

Also known as the Curzon Trail (though Lord Curzon's party abandoned its attempt on the pass following an attack of wild bees), the trek over the Kuari Pass (3640m) was popular in the Raj era and is still one of Uttarakhand's finest and most accessible treks, affording magnificent views of the snow-clad peaks around Nanda Devi. The trailhead is at Auli and the 75km trek to Ghat past lakes, waterfalls, forests, meadows and small villages takes five days, though it's possible to do a shorter version finishing in Tapovan in three days. A tent, guide and your own food supplies are necessary, all of which can easily be organised in Joshimath.

Thes To Today

Trying to make their way during economic hardship. (Part of it is set in one of the ugly concrete paneldk buildings of the communist era.) Slama won various awards and showings at international film festivals for Stesti, which is a follow-up to his acclaimed Divoke vcely (Wild Bees, 2001).

Jardin Du Luxembourg

When the weather is fine, Parisians of all ages come flocking to the formal terraces and chestnut groves of the 23-hectare Jardin du Luxembourg (Luxembourg Garden Map pp130-1 (M) Luxembourg S 7.30am to 8.15am-5pm to 10pm according to the season) to read, relax and sunbathe. There are a number of activities for children here, and in the southern part of the garden you'll find urban orchards as well as the honey-producing Rucher du Luxembourg (Luxembourg Apiary).

Celebrations

At Easter (called Velikden, or Pasha) a traditional bread is baked, containing whole eggs that have been dyed red. The bread is broken - never sliced -by the eldest member of the family, and pieces are distributed to all family members present. Other celebrations throughout the year are also marked with bread in many forms, including snakes (Jeremiah or Snake Day, 1 May) and crosses (Krastovden or Holy Cross Day, 14 September), or decorated with patterns such as beehives (Prokopi Pchelar or Procopius the Beekeeper Day, 8 July) and bunches of grapes (Preobrazhenie or Transfiguration Day, 6 August). In age-old tradition, Preobrazhenie was the first day on which Bulgarians ate the new crop of grapes, while eating blackberries (once known as devil's grapes) on this day was regarded as taboo.

Tribes of Kenya

Mursik Kenya

Although originally pastoralists, most Kalenjin groups took up agriculture. Beekeeping is still a common activity and the honey is used in trade and for brewing beer. The Kipsigis, on the other hand, have a passionate love for cattle and cattle-rustling continues to cause friction between them and neighbouring tribes.

Montes Chimanimani

Like the Penha Longa area to the north, the Montes Chimanimani have a long history and rich traditional life. Rock paintings similar to those at Chinamapere (see pi 16) have been found at several locations. Many of the rivers and pools in this area are considered sacred by local communities, as are some of the forest areas in the foothills of the mountains, and some of the peaks themselves. Traditional beekeeping is widely practised and you're likely to see odd-looking hives (made from the bark of brachystegia trees) hanging from tree branches.

Tips Flower Power

En route from Nainital to Naukuchiatal, take a break at Bhowali, where you can buy the fresh produce of the region. Make sure you stop at Fruitage, which sells apple chutney and apricot halves and a refreshing rhododendron squash. Some species of rhododendron are believed to have medicinal qualities that cool you down (ideal on a hot day). In addition, The plant's extracts (or honey produced from its nectar) are thought to alleviate cardiac problems, high blood pressure, and asthma. Connoisseurs of honey should also stop at the sleepy state-run apiary in Jeolikot, 17km (11 miles) from Nainital, famous for its pure wildflower honey. Sample unique, naturally occurring honey varieties like mustard, lychee, and eucalyptus.

Animals

Since the 1980s, beekeepers in Nevis have managed the bees in moveable frame hives, yielding 150 to 200 pounds of honey per hive every year. The bees are valued for their sweet product and for their role in pollinating sea grapes, coconuts, mangroves, mangos, sweet and sour oranges, genips and other local plants. The island has no Africanized honey bees and is protected from bee diseases found elsewhere because of its isolation. You can take home a taste of Nevis with honey sold at gift shops, museums and grocery stores around the island. Wholesale purchases can also be made from The Nevis Beekeepers, s 869-469-3263, ext 2086. For more on this Nevisian industry, read Beekeeping - The Nevis Way, by J. Quentin Henderson, available at the Horatio Nelson Museum and the Nevis Museum of History.
