Then turn a big Corner, there was a group of black building without any modern style.I knew it was Xincheng Old Town.Black roof, white wall, along river, the traditional building standing besides the narrow bank.

Last winter I had an amazing trip to East Nusa Tenggara, Flores Island, Indonesia. The trip was mainly for diving and to see the biggest lizard on earth, Komodo Dragon.

It’s not just the mega lizard or the underwater life that is jaw-dropping, the culture is so pretty and the people are remarkably humble.... continue reading

And even more I adore it when it stands alone, like a lonely person or a sanctuary.By the way, under the tree was found a fresh sign of moose sleeping place. Unfortunately, the mammal king of a forest has left it before we came in a scene. Probably most of you have a photo of a tree... continue reading
I heard a story about a guy who hired a drag line operator to dig out a pond on his property. The operator was digging for about three hours and was down about twenty five feet into the earth when he hit something big. He kept on digging and removed the dirt from the side of the object.Then he climbed down into the hole with a shovel and moved the dirt away from the object.
