Here Are The Top 25 Cities You Should Visit In Your Lifetime. You’ll Never Guess #1!

Why I’m Returning to Burning Man | Tremendous Times Looking down on Black Rock City from a plane that I watched skydivers jump out of. NO BIG DEAL. What is Burning Man like? When I’d agreed last year to go and perform on the Playa with the burlesque troupe I’m in, I didn’t really know what I was getting into. I was thrilled to perform there, but other than that I had basically no knowledge about what Burning Man was (and is). I’d only ever just heard of it when I moved to San Francisco about three years ago, and all I really understood was that it was people camping in the desert. As the months until the Burn whittled down, and then suddenly there were only weeks, and then days, I was actually dreading the trip there. Why? Ticket in hand as I waited to get into the gate. Well, as it turns out, no one can tell you what to expect, which explains why I never got a straight answer from anyone. Considering it’s such a foreign experience, it didn’t take me long at all last year to feel right at home. Seriously. Playa selfie! 1. How refreshing! 2.

Memorizing the Geography of Africa Africa Inspired by the positive feedback from my instructions for memorizing the geography of Canada, I put together this guide for memorizing the countries of Africa. In my second year at UC Santa Barbara, I snagged a ride to Sacramento with a couple of people I didn't really know. Alone in the backseat, I pored over a paper map of the continent of Africa, determined to memorize where all the countries were located. I was moderately successful, later using that knowledge to build a set of stencils to recreate the continent in mural form. Here's the top of the country. Across the top of the continent, there are four large-ist countries: Morocco, Algeria, Lybia and Egypt. Tunisia is the country where the self-immolation of Mohamed Bouazizi set off protests and revolution in late 2010. These five countries are on the Mediterranian Sea, so they have a long history of European trade. Down the west coast of Africa, We start with Morocco and Western Sahara and Mauritania. That's all I've got!
