WAILUA FALLS _ 0395

Wailua Falls is an 113-foot waterfall located in Kauai, Hawaii that feeds into the Wailua River. There are paths to the bottom of the falls, but it can be muddy, slippery and dangerous. The “trail” further from the parking lot is less steep than the closer one. Some hikers have strung ropes along the paths, but officials come by every so often and cut them. In ancient times, Hawaiian men would jump from the top of the falls to prove their manhood. And people still leap off, though it is dangerous and illegal. The pool is great swimming, but do not go near the waterfall as the currents are very dangerous.There is another waterfall nearby named ‘Opaeka’a Falls.

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK _ 0394

Carved out by the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon (nearly 1,500 m deep) is the most spectacular gorge in the world. Located in the state of Arizona, it cuts across the Grand Canyon National Park. Its horizontal strata retrace the geological history of the past 2 billion years. There are also prehistoric traces of human adaptation to a particularly harsh environment.

ECUADOR AMAZONIA _ 0393

The Ecuadorian Amazon is mainly tropical rainforest elevated 400 m above sea level.
The Amazon region of Ecuador is one of the few places in the world where its probably best to travel with a group, with a guide or through a jungle lodge. Unless you are studying, teaching English or consulting on a project in the Amazon, you are unlikely to have enough knowledge about the area to stay safe and, most importantly, to learn about the plants and animals that make the area so special.

PRE-HISPANIC CITY OF TEOTIHUACAN _ 0392

The holy city of Teotihuacan (‘the place where the gods were created’) is situated some 50 km north-east of Mexico City. Built between the 1st and 7th centuries A.D., it is characterized by the vast size of its monuments – in particular, the Temple of Quetzalcoatl and the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, laid out on geometric and symbolic principles. As one of the most powerful cultural centres in Mesoamerica, Teotihuacan extended its cultural and artistic influence throughout the region, and even beyond.
