Hello :)

Today I would like to show you a youtube.com video from a documentary I saw some days ago on Polish TV. It was made by one Brit who came to live in Nepal, who met there honey hunters and produced the documentary about them. Has anyone of you seen this movie?

The bees shown in this movie are ones of the most dangerous bee-tribes in the world.
However, because of the increasing interest both in watching working honey hunters (the most probably) and climbing these steepy rocks in order to experience something really thrilling and breath-taking -the bees are in danger.

Save the Nepali rock-bees then. Don't disturb them! Don't ruin their nests unneceserilly.
Don't watch these stupid and dangerous stunt shows! Better go and eat some bread instead. Or buy some cheap bananas.

honey hunter

Sincerely yours,
LM

PS1. Honey hunters have...bare feet (notice it!!!) bare feet when they are standing around millions of bees on the botchy ladders. Many of them have fallen down of course. They don't have to eat this honey at all. They have better things to eat too. I think, however (like the author of whole film), this is a need of showing off that pushes them to go so high.
And it is so dangerous of course... :(
To me - absolutely awful! :(

What do you think about honey hunters? :roll:

PS2. Youtube.com video has no sound of course. Just a picture. Pity.

Hi :)

Yes ...Paris is a great place to travel.
I hope to be there one day at last... :roll:
I presented Paris in this plot, too.
Today, however I would like to show you one of many ...London ice-rinks. The ice rink nearby the museum of Natural History. Why? Cause actually I have got an info that there are lots of ice rinks in London and when you are in London in December - don't forget to visit London's ice rinks.

I hope in Paris many ice rinks too but as an English language learner I should write first about London -I think... :roll:

So... have a time of your life skating in London!

Now still virtually but soon.... hm...hm...hm... :roll:

Ice Rink - the Natural History Museum

Regards,

Hi :)

Virtual travelling has its pros and cons. Cons first - there are many nice places in this world we would like to visit but we cannot (plenty of reasons of course):(.
Virtual travels have also many pros like - we can visit places we wouldn't like/cannot visit in reality.
One of such places is North Korea. Many bad things happen in North Korea and noone cares :(.
Has the world forgotten about North Korea and its people? :roll:

You can see a lot of youtube.com videos about North Korea. And choose "the best" one... North Korea is an example of how much evil the greed of power can do . :(

Inside North Korea

Regards - soon next virtual travels of mine ...:roll:

Hi everyone:)

Today I am travelling virtually to Berlin where you can meet 1 year old polar bear KNUT.

He was rejected by his mother as a baby but thrives thanks to people.

Here is English language video about KNUT - already 1 year old...

Knut Polar Bear celebrates his Birthday

How do you like KNUT? he isn't as cute as he used to be few moments ago ... they say....

Soon next travels of mine :)
I hope you will join me here :)

Hi - as you can hear in this short material Knut (as each hero) has its own blog :)
How nice :)

I have just found it to you, my dear readers :)
It is first in German but also in English :)

Thus together we can follow Knut's life :)

Knut's blog

I also want to say that the zoo-worker responsible for Knut obtained very important state award for his hard and well done job :)

Very nice, indeed :)

Congratulations for Berlin! :)

Hi again :)

Hello - last time here I travelled somewhere around Marocco.
Today I would like to take you for a journey to ..Dakar. It is also in Africa.
As you know the famous race Paris-Dakar took place inside Sahara sands.
This year this famous race has been cancelled :(.
So today a virtual journey through Sahara sands... with the race participants.

Race To Dakar

By the way - what will be next year with Dakar race? Can you guess it ? :roll:

Thanks for your clues :)

Soon next travels :)

Hi :)

Well... earlier I promised to take you for a journey into Kazahstan but I changed my mind and I am going to show you some Kenya - African country.
Today we are going for a safari there. As far as I remember I already travelled virtually to African safari but not lately and I hope not to Kenya. Soon next travels of mine.

PS. Well...first 2 mnutes of the video below are quite boring but then bit better. Really. Kazahstan and China soon :)

Hello for one moment more :)

Unfortunatelly I already travelled virtually to safari in ... Kenya. Hmmm... so I want to correct myself now and I am going to show you a piece of Lake Victoria. There are only few youtube.com videos about this incredible place :(. Lake Victoria lies on the western-south of Kenya. The lake borders with many countries. Only a little part of it appears in Kenya. Please, do more youtube.com videos about Lake Victoria. Thanks in advance :)
