Not where you'd normally expect to see penguins on a white sandy beach like this but it's a common sight in the Falklands! Photo by #natgeoexpeditions photographer @jctravelography

Photo by @sandesh_kadur natgeo filmmaker: Beautiful termite mounds rise deceivingly as high as the palm trees in the #okavangodelta - one of the earth’s last pristine wildernesses. Its inhabitants from tiny termites to 6 tonne elephants help give shape & form to this landscape along with the water the comes down from Angola.
If you are at #wildscreen don’t miss the screening today of #intotheokavango - a film that chronicles the journey of a team of modern day explorers as they journey from the source to the sand.

Parts of the traditions of the Berbers, dance and music are always important to welcome the foreigners as we are. I'm always amazed as such repetitive sound can engage so deep who hears.

The country of #Bhutan has a large #Tibetan community and this 87 year old woman has lived in Bhutan since she was ten years old. Often I find her here at the #Memorial #Chorten in #Thimphu, spinning her prayer wheel day in and day out. Photo by

At the entrance of the hotel Xaluca Arfoud, a tall black guy, dressed in shiny white, look at the people passing through the main door.
The Alaouite sultan of Morocco, Moulay Ismail (reigned 1672-1727) assembled The Black Guard. The guards, brought to Morocco as slaves, descended from tribes from the South of Africa. So not affiliated, not even by language, with the local Berber and Arab tribes. For this reason, they were considered much more loyal. Mainly in charge to collect taxes and patrolling the unstable countryside, the Black Guards in number of eight, dressed in white and with big scimitar, they were also the personal bodyguards of Ismail.
With the independency (1956), the Black Guard was changed to Moroccan Royal Guard. Today the guards are not more descendants of the black slaves, but selected from elite units of the Moroccan Army.
