Go wild In the Nile in Uganda Part 3
When you are with the guides  , they are sure to keep you cautious of the crocodiles who wont just bite you , they would probably eat you alive. And because this  just happens to be one of those cool places for crocodiles to come and hang out, you wouldn’t be allowed in the water. Every now and then , a fisherman who keeps paddling along in long canoes might just happen to pass you. Before you could actually come across the more nastier rapis, there are two forks of the large river which actually collides and has a drop, more like a set of stairs.  This angry , thundering vortex looks aggressive like engine of a fighter jet. The water is quite low , so there is a chance of danger. Although as long you listen to you guide you should not realy have any problem. Just as you plunge into the  [...]

History and architecture in Tangier morocco
It is truly a beautiful sight when the sunlight goes into a state passive decadence and dusk is what the evening is all about, in a city as beautiful as tangier.  You will find many tiny groups of locals and even expats sipping on mint flavored black tea, and even some who take their socializing habits to the top of the hotel Nord Pinus.  There is a beautifully styled guest house which lies in the Kasbah. The doorways are filled with the slight gush of gentle sea breeze that just makes its way though the large arches and are filled with decorated Moroccan pillows and other articles of embroidery and modern Moroccan photography which is pretty much like contemporary styled photography with Moroccan influence in terms of location and subject. All this gives tangier an elegant air of exclusivity.  [...]

While you walk the streets of Senegal, you will be able to find the West African breeze rustling through the palm trees and then it stirs up the dirt into what looks like a tiny tornado right in the parking lot. No, No, it definitely is not as bad as it seems. You could hire a SUV to take you around and while you go past the nocturnal crowds that keep streaking in and pout of the nightclubs here. Or if you are arriving on foot, car, scooter or even by a battered and beaten up black and yellow taxi cab. Get a chance to witness Mr. N’Dour in person who is Africa’s biggest music star.  Over here the city comes completely alive to the sound of music especially at night. N’Dour has just arrived into Dakar which happens to be the capital of the beautiful country of Senegal. He was at a Gala  [...]
