Today, I visited the “Fasanerie” a small zoo in Wiesbaden specialising in local animals.
There now are many young animals, but especially the young foxes were everybody’s darlings.

For most travellers visiting Machu Picchu from Cuzco, the starting point of the train ride is Ollantaytambo.
It would be a pity though to miss out on the Inca ruins in Ollantaytambo itself, which are also very impressive.

Chihuly Glass Art

Some glimpses of the Chihuly exhibition in Fairchild Garden (Miami, USA).

I found it incredible how well the glass exhibits fit their surroundings and complimented them.
Sometimes, it was hard to tell whether a particular flower was natural or not.

By the way, it seems there is more than one Chihuly exposition going on at the same time:
On another weblog, I found a reference to a Chihuly Exhibition at Missouri Botanical Gardens, as well as quite a few photos with installations ver ysimilar to the ones I saw in Miami.

More on the artist and the glass objects created by him on the official Dale Chihuly Website.

Fort Palamidi, Nafplion

Filed under: — site admin @ 6:51 pm

fort Palamidi Nafplion
Nafplion (also: Nauplion, Nauplia, Nafplio) is a beautiful city on the Peloponnese, which was the capital of Greece from 1829 to 1834.

There are two ancient fortresses with Fort Palamidi towering above the city on a hill top.
This fortress looks especially picturesque in the evening and at night.
