Zanzibar used to be the seat of the historical Oman State and the centre of African slavery. Thus, it became a colorful mixture, with the Islamic religion being the unifying force. Unlike the mainland, it is 99% Muslim and you often meet girls with headscarves in the streets. If you approach them gently, they are more than willing to pose for you.

Farrokh Bulsara was born in Zanzibar. We know him rather under his popular name, Freddie Mercury. Could it be that he was inspired by his youth in the island when he wrote the lyrics of Bohemian Rhapsody?

🇬🇧🇧🇼 The herd, Chobe, Botswana

Elephants are the largest land animals now living. At birth an elephant calf weighs 120 kilograms, but the largest elephant recorded weighed as much as 11,000kg. They typically live for 50 to 70 years.

Elephants live in a structured social order. The social lives of male and female elephants are very different. The females spend their entire lives in tightly knit family groups made up of mothers, daughters, sisters, and aunts. These groups are led by the eldest female, or matriarch. Adult males, on the other hand, live mostly solitary lives.

Elephants can communicate over long distances by producing and receiving low-frequency sound (infrasound), a sub-sonic rumbling, which can travel in the air and through the ground much farther than higher frequencies. This sound can be felt by the sensitive skin of an elephant's feet and trunk, which pick up the resonant vibrations much as the flat skin on the head of a drum.
Elephants can have profound impacts on the ecosystems they occupy. Negative: By pulling down trees to eat leaves, breaking branches, and pulling out roots, they reduce woody cover. Positive: During the dry season, elephants use their tusks to dig into river beds to reach underground sources of water. These holes may then become essential sources of water for other species. Elephants make paths through their environment that are used by other animals.

I took this shot in Chobe National Park in Botswana. That was the biggest elephant herd I’ve seen so far, with more than 40 individuals.

Chobe National Park, in northwest Botswana, has one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa. By size, it is the third largest park of the country, after the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and the Gemsbok National Park, and is the most diverse.

🇹🇷🇬🇧 Cappadocia, Turkey. 🇹🇷 Kapadokya'daki balon turları sabah erken saatte genelde Avanos-Çavuşin civarında başlar. Propanla ısıtılan sıcak hava ile şişirilen balonlar gün doğuşundan önce havalır. Genelde 10-15 kişiliktirler. Sanıldığının aksine belli bir rota yoktur. Balona sadece yukarı-aşağı yönde kumanda edilebilir. Havada bir saat kadar kalınır. Balonun ineceği yeri tahmin eden ekipler balondan atılan ipi çekerek inişi gerçekleştirirler. 🇬🇧 Cappadocia is a volcanic area in central Turkey. It is renowned for its strange shapes, called "fairy chimneys", which are formed during millions of years of volcanic activity of three neighbouring mountains.

Different layers in the landscape reflect different layers of volcanic eruptions, red of iron-based elements, grey-black of basalt, white of lime, etc. Balloon tours are a good way to grasp the landscape from above. Hot air balloons, which generally have a capacity of 15 people, are heated with propane. There is no predefined itinerary, as the balloon is driven by the wind, followed by a vehicle on the ground. It goes up as high as 1,000m., sometimes as low as to touch the leaves of the trees next to the "fairy chimneys". The landing is done thru the use of a rope that the land crew picks up from below.

🇺🇸 Cherry Blossom Festival is celebrated in the first two weeks of April as a symbol of the arrival of spring in Washington, D.C.. 3,000 cherry trees that were sent as a gift by the mayor of Tokyo in 1912, were planted at the shore of Potomac River, around the Thomas Jefferson Monument.

The festival is organized in the Capital City since 1935 and more than one million Americans visit the area to see the cherry blossoms.

The US Capitol, which houses the United States Congress (i.e., the Senate and the House of Parliament), is built in 1793, and was subject to various renovations since then. Its steel dome was constructed in 1855.

🇺🇸 Grand Canyon, USA.

The Grand Canyon is a canyon carved by the Colorado River in Arizona. It is largely contained within the Grand Canyon National Park, one of the first national parks in the United States.
The Grand Canyon is 446 km long, up to 29 km wide and attains a depth of over 1.83 km. Nearly two billion years of the Earth's geological history have been exposed as the Colorado River and its tributaries cut their channels through layer after layer of rock while the Colorado Plateau was uplifted.

🇺🇸 The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States.
Completed in 1883, it connects the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River. With a main span of 486m, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world from its opening until 1903, and the first steel-wire suspension bridge.. Architect Roebling designed a bridge and truss system that was six times as strong as he thought it needed to be. Because of this, the Brooklyn Bridge is still standing when many of the bridges built around the same time have vanished into history and been replaced.
Diagonal cables that you can observe in the picture were installed from the towers to the deck, intended to stiffen the bridge. They turned out to be unnecessary, but were kept for their distinctive beauty.

🇺🇸 Battleship Galactica

The Chrysler Building is an Art Deco style skyscraper in New York City, located on the east side of Manhattan. At 319m, the structure was the world's tallest building for 11 months before it was surpassed by the Empire State Building in 1931. It is still the tallest brick building in the world, albeit with an internal steel skeleton.
The Chrysler Building was designed by architect William Van Alen for a project of Walter P. Chrysler. When the ground breaking occurred on September 19, 1928, there was an intense competition in New York City to build the world's tallest skyscraper. Despite a frantic pace (the building was built at an average rate of four floors per week), no workers died during the construction of this skyscraper.
Prior to its completion, the building stood about even with a rival project at 40 Wall Street, designed by H. Craig Severance. Severance increased the height of his project and then publicly claimed the title of the world's tallest building (this distinction excluded structures that were not fully habitable, such as the Eiffel Tower). In response, Van Alen obtained permission for a 38-meter long spire[ and had it secretly constructed inside the frame of the building. Upon completion, May 20, 1930, the added height of the spire allowed the Chrysler Building to surpass 40 Wall Street as the tallest building in the world. It was the first man-made structure to stand taller than 1,000 feet (305 m). #chryslerbuilding #usa #travel #travelphotography #travelphotographer #travelphoto #travelphotos #gezi #seyahat #travelling #thephotosociety #ig_today #travelgram #ig_travel #ig_worldclub #yolculuk #foto #gezgin #battlestargalactia #galactica #nyc #newyork #artdeco
