I love it here – everything from the colonial architecture, the garishly colored temples, the wonderful food and the lovely, friendly Laos people. It has been a bit of an adjustment coming from Japan where you rarely see a foreigner and people move very quickly to this place that is absolutely brimming with Western tourists and where everyone takes their time. Many of the tuk tuk drivers have hammocks installed in the back of their vehicles and in the hot afternoon sun, can be seen napping away the afternoon. After the 25th we’ll be heading out to more rural areas of the country, in an attempt to get away from the huge number of tourists. A few nights ago we were sitting outside at a beautiful beer and food garden enjoying some cold BeerLaos. Some people carry an energy with them that is immediately negative. “Is it going to be good?

Gah! Noooooo! 17 Images You Won't Believe Aren't Photoshopped (Part 7) Salvador Dali's Melting Train Tracks These funhouse-mirror railroad tracks are a reminder that Mother Nature pretty much laughs at the things we build.

Rainforest Wildlife Photography: A Tribute to Guido Sterkendries Guido Sterkendries is a daring wildlife photographer. He challenges gravity and does things that normal photographers lack the adrenalline for. Dangling from the highest trees in the rainforests of Panama and Brazil, the Belgian photographer seeks rare wonders of nature that haven’t been captured on camera before. He spends up to two weeks in a specially constructed canopy that allows him to get closer to his subjects. He is, for sure, one man who will have what stories to tell at retirement, as a real-life Tarzan of photography. Despite the risky climbings he does, he manages to stay motivated and be very active as an artist and ecologist. Golden Frogs In the amazing rainforests of Panama the daring photographer Guido Sterkendries found an almost extinct species: the golden frogs.
