With a belief by some historians that human kind started and evolved in East Africa , it’s not surprising that Uganda , a destination in this region is prominent for being a habitat to the great primates.By description, Primates share with humans, flexible arms and legs, skilled fingers (and sometimes toes), and relatively big brains.

Travelling to Spain
2007-11-10 00:39:00
I have always been impressed with the south of Spain (Andalusia) the Arab influence on architecture there are breath taking.During our 2006 trip, I was very impressed with the Basque Region, amazing food, mountains, ocean beaches and hill top walled villages (like Laguardia) can be found within its borders.The north and east of Spain has its own special appeal. The north, central and north east of Spain, in the areas of Castile and Aragon are where the "Catholic Monarchs", Isabel the 1st and Fernando the 2nd of Aragon, ruled and engaged in the "Reconquest of Spain".The east of Spain holds the modernistic architecture of Barcelona, the ultra modern architecture of Valencia and the upcoming community of Zaragoza, not to mention numerous walled cities that retain much of their middle age character.My top recommendation for touring Spain is, do not be in a rush.Spain is best experienced slowly and as much as possible, try to match your activity to the life rhythms of the natives.

Fuerteventura Island

Fuerteventura is one of the Spanish Canary Island s, located just 100 kilometres off the coast of north Africa. It's the second biggest of the islands, after Tenerife, and has the longest beaches in the archipelago. The island is a paradise for sun, beach and watersports enthusiasts. It's not the place for all-night ravers but Fuerteventura (or Fuerte as it's affectionately known) is perfect for families and couples seeking a relaxed winter sun holiday. The island is widely believed to be the oldest of the Canary Islands. It's strange form - a cross between a leg of mutton and Marge Simpson's hairdo! - was created out of a series of volcanic eruptions many thousands of years ago.

A trip to Bruges.
2007-10-20 15:23:00
It was only last winter that I went to Bruges with my parents. Bruges is the capital of the province of West Flanders, the Flemish region of Belgium. In Dutch, Brugge means “landing stage”. Bruges has not changed since medieval times and is a major landmark of Europe. We flew to Brussels and then took a train into Bruges. It is very easy to reach Bruges as it is well connected by train to all Belgium’s major cities.The Bruges railway station is just five-minute walk from the city’s main market square and not much further from our accommodation. We had booked a lovely room in advance and this made our time in Bruges all the more enjoyable. As the streets are narrow and there are many canals in the city, it is not advisable to drive to and in Bruges. Instead, you can take advantage of the many guided walking tours of the city, which will be an unforgettable experience for the ones who don’t mind walking long distances. The first thing we noticed in Bruges was that its mediev...
