This series of pictures shows some of the many flat baskets that you can see around Luang Prabang, Laos. While the contents of the baskets varied, it looked like it was always food. Dried chili to be ground into pastes, dried sticky rice, and dried Morning Glory. I don’t know exactly why all of these things need to be dried, but I really liked the way the baskets were just set out on the sidewalks. Luang Prabang is a really pretty little town with a lot of interesting things to offer tourists, and with some really fantastic food!

These pictures of moon jellies were taken at the California Science Center in Los Angeles, California. The Science Center is a great place for families, its awesome for kids. I’m 21, and I still thoroughly enjoy visiting this museum. They have cool temporary exhibits, but their permanent exhibits are nice too. These jellyfish are part of the permanent display.

This is a photograph of a giraffe silhouette, taken in Maasai Mara, Kenya. As i’ve mentioned before (see other Kenya posts) Maasai Mara is my favorite of the parks i’ve visited in Kenya. I find that it has the greatest proliferation of wildlife, and we usually have great luck here, there are tons of animals, especially if you are around during the Great Migration, and because this park is more touristed (still no where close to over-touristed though) the animals are a little less shy than they are at some of the more remote parks.

This picture was taken just outside Krakow, Poland in the Wieliczka Salt Mine. The mines are pretty cool, the tours take you through the old mines, but it’s more than just a historic site. The mines are also home to a myriad of impressive statues carved from the salt, as well as a beautiful underground chapel complete with salt crystal chandeliers. When we were in Poland it was absurdly hot (91 degrees Fahrenheit on our first day) so we retreated to this underground system for some cooler (in the temperature sense) sight seeing. The mines are a little chilly, so maybe bring a sweatshirt! If you’ve never been to a mine it’s interesting, I thought it was pretty neat, and it’s an unusual thing to have an opportunity to visit. Also, you can get to the mines by taking a bus from Krakow, which doesn’t take to long.

Lion Up Close

A picture of a young(ish) male lion in Mount Meru National Park. We saw this big boy just lounging around near the side of one of the dirt roads while on safari in the park. This was our second time in Kenya, but our first time at Mount Meru. It was really beautiful, but we didn’t really see a massive amount of animal life; a large variety, but in smaller numbers than in some of the other parks. If you have a limited amount of time in Kenya I would recommend heading over to Masai Mara (my favorite park) it’s a bit more crowded, but there are a lot more animals there, and the larger number of people means more communication between the drivers, more communication between the drivers means that you get to see more. I’ll give more information about Kenya and our safari experience in the pictures that follow 🙂
