Worldly Vistas: Edge of the Oasis

On the edge of the oasis, Douz, TunisiaDouz
Photographed in Tunisia

Douz is located in southwestern Tunisia and is known as the Gateway to the Sahara. The oasis goes on for “blocks and blocks,” looking just like a regular city. That is, until you get to the edge where the trees thin out, giving way to sand. Then, the Sahara stretches out before you for thousands of miles.

Photographed in Peru

Located in southeastern Peru and northwestern Bolivia with the upper part forming the border between the two countries, The Tambopata River is a tributary of the Madre de Dios River. The river flows between Lake Titicaca and deep into the Amazon basin, and flows through the Tambopata National Reserve, which is rich with wonderful wildlife.

Getting here? Easy. Just go to Puerto Maldonado, take a motorized canoe up river…OK. Yes! It’s remote, but that adds to the allure.

Photographed in Croatia

The walls of Dubrovnik are a series of defensive stone walls whose construction began in the 7th century. The bulk of the existing walls and fortifications were constructed during the 14th and 15th centuries, but were continually extended and strengthened up until the 17th century.

The walls run an uninterrupted course of approximately 6,360 ft in length, encircling most of the old city, and reach a maximum height of about 25 82 ft.

This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Worldly Vistas: Cup Coral

Cup Coral, Bonaire

Orange Cup Coral (Tubastraea coccinea)
Photographed in Bonaire

Originally from Indo-Pacific waters, the orange cup coral established itself throughout the Caribbean most likely arriving attached to ship hulls.

Although a beautiful and colorful addition to the reefs, they are an invasive species, displacing native corals and sponges. While the beautiful translucent tentacles project out of its hard coral base, it is not considered a reef-building one, thereby restricting reef growth.

Photographed in Morocco

Telouet is a kasbah that lies at an elevation of 5,900 ft and is located along the former caravan route that went over the Atlas Mountains from the Sahara Desert to Marrakech. It was the seat of the El Glaoui family’s power. Although crumbling, it is still one of Morocco;s most impressive Kasbahs with beautiful decorative tiles mosaics still visible. The palace can still be visited but it is steadily becoming more damaged and is slowly collapsing.

Finally, in 2010, some work was underway to restore it. Is it too late?

Westfjords
Photographed in Iceland

The Westfjords, located in northwestern Iceland and facing Greenland,  is a very mountainous region with the coastline heavily indented by dozens of fjords surrounded by steep hills.

But, everything seems surprising flat…at least the tops of the fjords, that is.
