Ai-Ais Richtersveld Transfrontier National Park and Fish River Canyon

With a length of 650 kilometres the Fish River is the longest river in Namibia. Its source lies in the eastern Naukluft mountains and it runs south-west of Ai-Ais into the Orange River. Because the Fish River gets already dammed up in the Hardap Dam near Mariental, it carries only little water for the remaining stretch of its journey.

The canyon at the lower course of the Fish River belongs to the most impressive natural beauties in southern Namibia. The Fish River Canyon is up to 550 metres deep and after the Grand Canyon in America the second biggest canyon in the world. The canyon winds its way over a distance of about 160 kilometres through the rugged Koubis mountains down to Ai-Ais. The canyon starts near Seeheim and ends after 161 kilometres near Ai-Ais.

The canyon is part of an official nature conservation park. The governments of Namibia and South Africa agreed in 2003 to merge the Namibian Fish River Canyon Park and the South African Richtersveld National Park to form the Ai-Ais Richtersveld Transfrontier National Park. Near Sendelingsdrift at the Orange River a ferry was established and a border post has been opened.

The northern park entrance is still situated at the restcamp Hobas. From here it is another 10 km drive to the Canyon rim where one has a stunning view of the famous “Hell’s Bend”.

Hikes through the Fish River Canyon are popular. However, they require good fitness and can only be undertaken during the cooler winter months from May to August. A permit from Namibia Wildlife Resorts in Windhoek is needed. The 86 kilometre hike takes 5 days.

Much shorter and easier, but also very attractive hikes are available at the private Canyon Nature Park which is 45.000 hectares in size. The Fish River Lodge – part of the park – lies only metres from the Canyon edge and offers breathtaking views. Excellent hiking opportunities can also be found in the “Gondwana Canyon Park” on the eastern side of the canyon. Gondwana is private as well and covers an area of 100.000 hectares. The reserve offers very attractive accommodation options.

From the Fish River Canyon it is only a stone’s throw to Ai-Ais at the southern end of the canyon. Thermal water, 60°C hot and rich in sulphates and fluorides, gushes forth from the springs of Ai-Ais. In the Nama language “Ai-Ais” means “burning water”.

The thermal bath next to the hot spring is a popular recreation resort, especially during the winter months. The water is particularly soothing for people suffering from rheumatism. Of course, healthy people enjoy the spouting water fountains as well. There are indoor pools with various water temperatures and an outdoor pool.

Big In Japan: Abandoned – Gulliver’s Kingdom – Theme Park #online

#gullivers travel
#

Gulliver s Kingdom Theme Park, built in the shadow of Japan s Mount Fuji with oodles of government stimulus money, was a sprawling white elephant that existed for only 10 years. Today there s little if any trace of the abandoned theme park. its ruins, or Gulliver himself but the eerie and unsettling images captured by a legion of intrepid “haikyo” explorers.

Time and Tied

(images via: Spechtrograph and Michael John Grist )

Gulliver s Kingdom was a failed theme park located near Kawaguchi-machi, Yamanashi prefecture, Japan. The park opened in 1997 and typified the “bridge to nowhere” construction projects Japan s government and banking sector championed in the 1990s.

(images via: UER and Kuroneko )

Though intended to boost the economy out of its post-bubble doldrums, white elephants like Gulliver s Kingdom created some short-term construction jobs but little permanent employment.

(image via: Spechtrograph )

Gulliver s Kingdom was backed financially by the Niigata Chuo Bank. which later collapsed into a sea of red ink and toxic, non-performing loans. As it morphed into a so-called Zombie Bank, the Niigata Chuo Bank was ordered to clear its books of unprofitable assets, of which Gulliver s Kingdom was one: they had lent the venture around $350 million. In October of 2001, the unpopular theme park shut its Brobdingnagian doors for the last time.

Cult of Poison-ality

(images via: Spechtrograph and Dreamin Trip Salad )

On the face of it, Gulliver s Kingdom had a few things going for it. Its location, for one thing – nestled in Kamikuishiki village at the foot of Mount Fuji. About 25 million tourists descend upon Mount Fuji s environs each year and as beautiful as it is, how long can one look at a dormant volcano?

(images via: K3N s Blog and Spechtrograph )

And about that location Mount Fuji has a dark side, most notably the Aokigahara area where seemingly oblivious project planners decided to build Gulliver s Kingdom. Ranked sixth by the website Cracked.com on their list of The 6 Creepiest Places on Earth. Aokigahara is Japan s “suicide forest” said to be the second most popular suicide location after San Francisco s Golden Gate Bridge. On the bright side, if the kids are driving you nuts after an afternoon spent at Gulliver s Kingdom well, perish that thought.

(image via: MutantMandias )

Bad enough Gulliver s Kingdom had a suicide forest as its neighbor, the park s other neighbors were much, much worse. Kamikuishiki village is notorious for being the location of the Aum Shinrikyo doomsday cult s headquarters and nerve gas production facility.

(image via: UER )

Remember Aum? They re the whack-jobs who carried out Sarin gas attacks that killed 19 people, including 12 on the Tokyo subway. On March 22nd, 1995, the cult s compound was stormed by over 1,000 police officers decked out in full-face gas masks.

(images via: Michael John Grist and UER )

Three years later (and one year after Gulliver s Kingdom opened), residents living nearby were still being reminded of Aum Shinrikyo s monstrous crimes. “I can still smell the chemicals sometimes when I take a walk in the morning,” said 69-year-old Norie Okamoto, who lives just 100 meters (330 ft) from one of the cult s former Sarin production facilities. Now Robert Duvall might love the smell of napalm in the morning, but you and your family out for some fun at Gulliver s Kingdom? Not *cough* so much.

Gulliver Unravels

(images via: Michael John Grist and K3N s Blog )

The exposure of Aum Shinrikyo was pretty much the straw that broke the back of Gulliver s Kingdom, though there was really so much wrong with the park on so many levels one might say it was clearly doomed from the start.

Gulliver s Kingdom wasn t actually a Six Flags style park, by the way. The closest things to the usual amusement park rides and rollercoasters were a bobsled track and a luge course – not exactly ideal for the kiddies.

(image via: UER )

We don t recall Gulliver s Kingdom as being a stop on the World Bobsled Tour (if there is such a thing), but maybe that whole nerve gas factory proximity thing put organizers off scheduling events there.

(image via: MutantMandias )

Let s not forget the immobile star of the show, a 45 meter (147.5 ft) long statue of Jonathan Swift s epic character. Even the name of the park was a misnomer. If it s Gulliver s Kingdom, what s the big guy doing securely pegged to the ground? No way to treat a king, now is it? Those are just some of the questions we ll never know the answers to and here s one more: what s inside the doors cut into Gulliver s body??

(images via: MutantMandias )

All that s by the by, by the way, since Gulliver s Kingdom is no more and I mean literally. After a thorough demolition in 2007, all one can see are some exposed foundations and the odd tuft of asbestos insulation snagged on twisted rebar.

(image via: UER )

If not for these vivid and disturbing photographic images, few would be the wiser as to what came and went at the foot of Mount Fuji almost as fast as the 2010 movie Gulliver s Travels appeared and then vanished from your local marquee. Both, as it happens, were in 3D.

(image via: National Geographic )

Nothing remains of Gulliver s Kingdom today but a rough concrete scar, and even this basic foundation is gradually being subsumed by dirt, dust and windblown sand. Was it all a dream? Perhaps it was and if any lessons can be learned by Gulliver s Kingdom s rise, fall and disappearance it s that if one must dream, at least dream big.

    I had a problem area at my front door that was very dirty and it was also wrinkled so badly that it was difficult to close my door. Very embarassing when someone came over.

    We had a very severe pet urine odor situation in the basement that we just couldn’t get rid of. Justin and Mike pulled my carpet back and showed me how severe the damage was underneath. No wonder the smell was so bad! They replaced my padding and treated the back of the carpet and sure enough the smell went away!

    Karen / Fairfield OH

    Dentsu Acquires Digital Indie Firstborn

    By Kunur Patel. Published on January 31, 2011.

    NEW YORK (AdAge.com) — Dentsu West, the U.S. arm of the Japanese holding company giant, has acquired 65-person indie digital shop Firstborn.

    The New York-based digital agency is the latest in Dentsu’s buying spree under Tim Andree, CEO of Dentsu West. Terms of the Firstborn deal, which has been in the works since last summer, were not disclosed. Firstborn will maintain its name and clients, and says its trio of senior leaders, CEO Michael Ferdman, President Dan LaCivita and Chief Creative JoonYong Park, will all stay onboard at the shop.

    Firstborn’s revenue was an estimated $12 million to $13 million in 2010, up more than 30% from 2009, the year it was named to Ad Age’s A-List. It counts PepsiCo’s Sobe, Wrigley and Aflac as clients.

    In keeping with Mr. Andree’s usual form, no investment bankers were involved in the purchase; the sole matchmaker was Bryan Wiener, CEO of 360i. the digital agency Dentsu acquired nearly a year ago to the date. He introduced Mr. Ferdman and Mr. Andree over dinner just after Labor Day, at Tribeca Grill in Manhattan.

    The two digital-agency CEOs have been friends for years, and prior to that dinner, Mr. Ferdman asked Mr. Wiener: “For real, tell me, what’s changed?” This was not the first union Mr. Ferdman had considered; other media and holding companies have tried to court Firstborn, but he had always turned them away. “None of [ 360i ‘s] key people are gone and they’re a bigger company than we are,” he said. “Everyone knows horror stories of what can happen [with acquisitions], and all I’ve seen at Bryan’s company is positive.” With 25% revenue growth one year after the acquisition, 360i was recently named to Ad Age’s Agency A-List. McGarryBowen, another major Dentsu acquisition before that, has also grown substantially since its sale and was named Ad Age Agency of the Year for 2009 and again to the Agency A-List in 2010.

    While Firstborn is the second digital agency to join Dentsu West, Mr. Andree insists there’s no overlap between 360i and its new sibling. He calls the agencies “completely complementary,” since Firstborn brings new services to the network, such as 3D animation and web development. “We’re not adding competitors,” he said. “We’re adding new talent and capabilities.”

    One major point of difference is that, where most agencies use the influx of cash to set up new offices around the globe, Firstborn isn’t looking to expand beyond its single, New York office. Mr. Ferdman is insistent on keeping all staffers within the same office in the hopes of keeping the agency’s culture intact.

    However, the acquisition could potentially raise conflicts with Firstborn’s existing agency clients — 25% of revenue comes from production work for other agencies. For example, the agency has a long-standing relationship with WPP’s Team Detroit for car websites and customization tools. Another consideration will be the fact Firstborn counts PepsiCo a client, while 360i works with Coca-Cola, but Mr. Andree there will be sufficient firewalls put in place to safeguard those relationships.

    Ai-Ais Richtersveld Transfrontier National Park and Fish River Canyon

    With a length of 650 kilometres the Fish River is the longest river in Namibia. Its source lies in the eastern Naukluft mountains and it runs south-west of Ai-Ais into the Orange River. Because the Fish River gets already dammed up in the Hardap Dam near Mariental, it carries only little water for the remaining stretch of its journey.

    The canyon at the lower course of the Fish River belongs to the most impressive natural beauties in southern Namibia. The Fish River Canyon is up to 550 metres deep and after the Grand Canyon in America the second biggest canyon in the world. The canyon winds its way over a distance of about 160 kilometres through the rugged Koubis mountains down to Ai-Ais. The canyon starts near Seeheim and ends after 161 kilometres near Ai-Ais.

    The canyon is part of an official nature conservation park. The governments of Namibia and South Africa agreed in 2003 to merge the Namibian Fish River Canyon Park and the South African Richtersveld National Park to form the Ai-Ais Richtersveld Transfrontier National Park. Near Sendelingsdrift at the Orange River a ferry was established and a border post has been opened.

    The northern park entrance is still situated at the restcamp Hobas. From here it is another 10 km drive to the Canyon rim where one has a stunning view of the famous “Hell’s Bend”.

    Hikes through the Fish River Canyon are popular. However, they require good fitness and can only be undertaken during the cooler winter months from May to August. A permit from Namibia Wildlife Resorts in Windhoek is needed. The 86 kilometre hike takes 5 days.

    Much shorter and easier, but also very attractive hikes are available at the private Canyon Nature Park which is 45.000 hectares in size. The Fish River Lodge – part of the park – lies only metres from the Canyon edge and offers breathtaking views. Excellent hiking opportunities can also be found in the “Gondwana Canyon Park” on the eastern side of the canyon. Gondwana is private as well and covers an area of 100.000 hectares. The reserve offers very attractive accommodation options.

    From the Fish River Canyon it is only a stone’s throw to Ai-Ais at the southern end of the canyon. Thermal water, 60°C hot and rich in sulphates and fluorides, gushes forth from the springs of Ai-Ais. In the Nama language “Ai-Ais” means “burning water”.

    The thermal bath next to the hot spring is a popular recreation resort, especially during the winter months. The water is particularly soothing for people suffering from rheumatism. Of course, healthy people enjoy the spouting water fountains as well. There are indoor pools with various water temperatures and an outdoor pool.

    Bed Bug Report for Marriott Residence Inn Capitol Washington DC, Washington,


    Marriott Residence Inn Capitol Washington DC
    333 E St Sw
    Washington, DC 20024-3221

    Found 12 reports:

    Anonymous on 12/26/2012

    Well, I didn’t know what bed bugs were, but I found out recently after a stay here. I thought it might be a rash or some alergic reaction. not knowing what bed bugs were. Well, now I’ve learned and know to check a website like this one, before making a hotel reservation. Don’t stay here. You don’t want the bites. Believe me. For me I woke up in the middle of the night itching and hot like I was running a temperature. I think the bites actually caused my body to go into an allergic reacti

    on. In the end I had tiny red itchy spots all over my body. and now I’m concerned they got into my luggage and my house.

    anonymous on 10/05/2012

    This place has bed bugs, stayed there August 2012 for a couple weeks and started having bumps on my arms! didn’t think much of it, until the night sleeping bed watching TV, this large black bug/tic something walked on the sheet. I ran out to the front desk. They stormed my room, went though all my luggage my clothes underware and all. they took everything to wash and moved me to another room. By the time the horrific night was over it was 4AM. the manager told me she will give me lots of mar

    riot points.
    Well I am out of there now and the hurtfull bumps are all gone. I will never stay there again.
    this place has bed bugs.

    Anonymous on 08/10/2011

    We stayed here for 6 nights August 2011. After reading reports of bedbugs at this motel, I did a very thorough inspection of both the bed AND sofabed as soon as we checked in and found nothing. We had a wonderful stay. Everything was very clean and comfortable and I would not hesitate staying here again or recommending it to someone else!

    Anonymous on 05/17/2011

    I stayed at this hotel in February and had no problems at all. The room was very clean and comfortable. Would absolutely stay here again!

    Anonymous on 04/13/2011

    Stayed in this hotel for two weeks in March 2011, and I did not have any issues at all. Room was clean and did not see any bugs or experience any bites.

    kevin swanson on 04/04/2011

    stayed at hotel 3/18/11-3/22/11, on the sixth floor

    With all the bed bug paranoia, we always check the bedding immediately after check-in. We discovered no bed bugs and did not suffer any bites. The breakfast buffet area was neat and orderly with no signs of bugs or unclean eating surfaces.

    Swarming with bed bugs in my bed Nov 4-5 2010. 4 dozen bites.

    Hotel Management on 10/19/2010

    We take great pride in our hotel and in the services we offer and have a very aggressive extermination program in place. Bed bugs are not a regular occurrence at our hotel because of our aggressive pest control program which is administered by a professional pest control company. Besides our regular extermination program which occurs monthly, we use an outside company for any incidents that involve any kind of report of bugs. We have increased our room inspection program which includes checking

    for the presence of bugs and insects. If anything is found during this process or reported by any guest, we immediately call the outside extermination company for treatment and we do not sell the room until it is pest free. We also inspect all rooms around that room and above and below to ensure no other rooms have been affected. No rooms are put back into service until we are given a clean record from the outside company.

    As has been recently reported by many news sources, the incidence of bed bugs is higher than usual throughout the United States and the world. Bed Bugs have been found in many locations, including popular retail chains, movie theaters, public transportation vehicles and hotels. Bed bugs are not a cleanliness issue and are brought into hotels by guests who have been in contact with them elsewhere. No hotel is exempt. Bed bugs do not discriminate between hotel brand, star rating, or location of hotel. What does distinguish a hotel above the rest is how aggressive they treat for bed bugs in the rare occurrence of a sighting or infestation. I am confident that our aggressive extermination program addresses this issue so that our guests can have a safe and comfortable stay.

    sid on 10/13/2010

    i have bites all over my arms and legs from mesquitos, fleas, gnats, and bed bugs. The mattress had bugs all over. the lobby had several gnats and mesquitos flying all over especailly in the area where the breakfast buffet is. i went to get a soda from the machine and there was gnats in my sprite. this hotel also allows pets which could be the reason that there are so many flees just hoping around the lobby area. if you look hard enough you will see them on the floors. Me and my wife have bites

    all over our arms and legs. i stayed 10/1/10 to 10/4/10. I also happened to see some cochroaches around outside the building and wouldnt be suprised if they are walking the halls of the hotel. it is as if this hotel does not follow any type of extermination program through ecolab or other commercail santitation companies.

    Anonymous on 09/22/2010

    Stayed end of September 2010.

    Woke up first morning and noticed bites on ankle, thought it might be from something else. Woke up second morning and noticed new bites on thigh. Room was on 8th floor.

    D S on 09/09/2010

    Stayed at this hotel in July 2010. My wife woke up and found one bug on her. Thankfully no welts.

    Coastie on 07/30/2010

    End of July 2010

    Bedbugs reported in room on 12th floor. They came in and sprayed and replaced mattress. Over next few days. more bites appeared.

    Hoping that I haven’t picked up critters into luggage and laundry. Don’t want to bring these home.

    Alamo Square

    ADVISORY: Alamo Square is currently closed for renovation until Spring 2017

    Don t forget your camera: historic Alamo Square offers quintessential scenes of the City, including the famous Painted Ladies of Postcard Row. This photogenic hilltop has appeared in numerous TV and film productions, such as the sitcom Full House.

    Fame aside, the abundant lawns, flowerbeds and willows have made this park a well-loved play space for generations. Youngsters flock to the dual-level playground, while the off-leash area is popular with dogs (and dog parents). Look for the unusual Shoe Garden, where castoff high heels and ski boots are repurposed as landscape art. Full tennis court, walking trails and picnic area.

    What’s New

    Dear Friends of Alamo Square Park, Thank you for your interest in Alamo Square Park. We are very pleased to have re-opened the park after investing $5.3 million in this twelve acre, iconic property. Much of the work we completed, you cannot see.

    Join us for a celebration event marking the completion of signficiant improvements to this iconic neighborhood park. Funded by the 2008 and 2012 Clean and Safe Neighbhorhood Park bonds as well as Continue reading

    I m happy to announce that Alamo Square will be open on Wednesday, May 24th!

    As you may have noted from recent SF Chronicle reporting, the Alamo Square Park opening has been delayed due to winter weather. We thank you for your patience and anticipate making an announcement about the park opening by mid-April. In the coming weeks construction will focus on pathway replacement, new planting, and putting Continue reading

    Construction at Alamo Square is currently on track for a spring opening as the contractor will soon be installing the remaining turf, repaving pathways, and putting finishes in the new restroom.

    Ai-Ais Richtersveld Transfrontier National Park and Fish River Canyon

    With a length of 650 kilometres the Fish River is the longest river in Namibia. Its source lies in the eastern Naukluft mountains and it runs south-west of Ai-Ais into the Orange River. Because the Fish River gets already dammed up in the Hardap Dam near Mariental, it carries only little water for the remaining stretch of its journey.

    The canyon at the lower course of the Fish River belongs to the most impressive natural beauties in southern Namibia. The Fish River Canyon is up to 550 metres deep and after the Grand Canyon in America the second biggest canyon in the world. The canyon winds its way over a distance of about 160 kilometres through the rugged Koubis mountains down to Ai-Ais. The canyon starts near Seeheim and ends after 161 kilometres near Ai-Ais.

    The canyon is part of an official nature conservation park. The governments of Namibia and South Africa agreed in 2003 to merge the Namibian Fish River Canyon Park and the South African Richtersveld National Park to form the Ai-Ais Richtersveld Transfrontier National Park. Near Sendelingsdrift at the Orange River a ferry was established and a border post has been opened.

    The northern park entrance is still situated at the restcamp Hobas. From here it is another 10 km drive to the Canyon rim where one has a stunning view of the famous “Hell’s Bend”.

    Hikes through the Fish River Canyon are popular. However, they require good fitness and can only be undertaken during the cooler winter months from May to August. A permit from Namibia Wildlife Resorts in Windhoek is needed. The 86 kilometre hike takes 5 days.

    Much shorter and easier, but also very attractive hikes are available at the private Canyon Nature Park which is 45.000 hectares in size. The Fish River Lodge – part of the park – lies only metres from the Canyon edge and offers breathtaking views. Excellent hiking opportunities can also be found in the “Gondwana Canyon Park” on the eastern side of the canyon. Gondwana is private as well and covers an area of 100.000 hectares. The reserve offers very attractive accommodation options.

    From the Fish River Canyon it is only a stone’s throw to Ai-Ais at the southern end of the canyon. Thermal water, 60°C hot and rich in sulphates and fluorides, gushes forth from the springs of Ai-Ais. In the Nama language “Ai-Ais” means “burning water”.

    The thermal bath next to the hot spring is a popular recreation resort, especially during the winter months. The water is particularly soothing for people suffering from rheumatism. Of course, healthy people enjoy the spouting water fountains as well. There are indoor pools with various water temperatures and an outdoor pool.

    SHO Today:

    Senior Housing Options, Inc. (SHO) is a charitable organization that serves low and moderate income elderly and adults with physical and mental disabilities. We currently own and/or manage both assisted living and affordable apartment living units for over 500 residents including properties in Cortez, Denver, Granby, Kremmling, Longmont, and Parachute. SHO generates its own revenues to the extent possible and manages resources well, but still there are unmet needs that require us to ask for help from individuals, businesses, and foundations to assure high care for all residents.

    1999: Lower Downtown District Inc. Good Neighbor Brick

    1987: Ecumenical Housing was changed to Senior Housing Options to reflect its expanded operation throughout the State of Colorado and to more clearly reflect our mission. With the success and positive feedback from both residents and families, we began receiving requests to manage and/or build facilities from other organizations outside the metro Denver area.

    1987: Aging in Place leads to Assisted Living. It became apparent that as many of the residents in these two initial properties were getting older and they needed additional services. SHO began creating assisted living residences which were licensed by the State and certified to accept residents receiving Medicaid.

    1985: Downtown Denver Inc. Award of Merit

    1979: Ecumenical Housing is created. Ecumenical Housing was a community effort developed to serve elderly and disabled people being displaced from their homes in downtown Denver due to urban renewal. New office towers were quickly dislocating people who had resided in affordably priced hotels and boarding homes. The first two acquisitions to respond to this need were the Olin Apartments and The Barth Hotel.

    Atlantic Eye Institute: LASIK, Cataract, Eye Exams #eye #doctors, #eye #surgeons,


    #

    TIRED OF GLASSES CONTACTS?

    Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery with the LenSx® Laser.

    EXPERT

    OPTICAL CENTER

    AM I A CANDIDATE

    FOR LASIK?

    Over the past 10 years, I have worked with over 30 Lasik surgeons in Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee no one has better skills than The Eye Guys at Atlantic Eye Institute. It is a pleasure to be affiliated with this fine practice.

    Dr. Brian DenBeste. Founder LaserVue

    LASIK surgery made my vision better than any corrective lenses could ever do. The depth perception I gained from this surgery was such a shock; for the first time, I could see in 3-D! I don t have a problem seeing without any type of corrective lenses now, and I can see all of the plants in my house in vivid detail. What a great gift!

    Terry. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

    For years I wanted to have LASIK surgery but never got the information I needed to pursue the surgery. I am thrilled with the results and only wish I had taken the time to get this information earlier! I couldn t be happier, and I would highly recommend LASIK at Atlantic Eye Institute to anyone. It is the best investment in myself that I have ever made. I feel and look younger and no longer have to deal with wearing glasses!

    Sharon. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

    I really thought I d scheduled my LASIK just to get rid of those awful glasses, but I m stunned at the positive changes I ve seen in the quality of my life! I would recommend Atlantic Eye Institute in Jacksonville to everyone considering LASIK surgery.

    Kim. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

    Having had amblyopia and been virtually blind in 1 eye, lifelong, it was amazing to have 20/25 vision with only a small amount of astigmatism after Dr. Shmunes performed Lasik surgery. I would highly recommend this procedure to anyone who experiences amblyopia or severe astigmatism or just wishes to see better without glasses.

    Terry. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

    To all considering LASIK Just do it! I ve worn glasses and contacts all my life and recently had LASIK at Atlantic Eye Institute. I now see 20/15 in both eyes after only one day! Thanks Atlantic Eye Institute for taking such great care of my eyes and adding to my quality of life. I now can go to the beach or pool with my one-year-old boy, Hudson, and not worry about those glasses and clip-on shades.

    Joan. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

    The whole experience was wonderful. The doctors and staff worked as a team, from the very first consultation to the actual surgery. They were very thorough in every process and answered all my questions and concerns. I am ecstatic about the new found freedom of seeing 20/20, 20/15 without the aid of eyeglasses or contacts. It s the best investment I ve ever made. It s a dream come true!

    Genna. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

    I m one day out of my Lasik surgery and I can t say enough good things, not just about the surgery but also the level of care I have received. For anyone considering Lasik, I not only highly recommend the procedure but also Atlantic Eye Institute. Top-notch! Thank you a million for giving me the gift of sight, and for making me feel comfortable through every step of the process.

    Jessica. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

    Had a scare with a possible retinal problem this morning. Kudos to the answering service, the on-call physician who called me back, and the staff at the beaches office for getting me right in. The answering service even followed up to make sure I had been contacted. All is well thank you for the excellent service (and peace of mind)!

    Mary. Ocular Emergency

    Just completed my last exam after laser cataract removal and lens implant in both eyes. I highly recommend the entire Atlantic Eye Institute group for your eye care. A special thanks to Dr. Duss and his surgery team. They were the best in giving me back my perfect vision professional, caring, instructive, and friendly. I will soon be 68 years old, but now I have the eyes I had back in my 20s! If you are suffering from cataracts, give these guys a call; you ll be glad you did.

    John. Laser Cataract Surgery

    An awesome experience! Dr. Diaz and the staff of Atlantic Eye Institute were beyond my expectations. They were knowledgeable, honest, and caring. All my eye measurements were triple checked before the surgery, so I felt confident in the process. All the options were discussed and possible limitations were thoroughly explained. I ended up with LASIK for my vision correction and I couldn t be happier. The procedure was quick and relatively painless and my vision is incredible. It has been a life changing event. I m beyond ecstatic with the results and the process. There aren t words to express the amount of gratitude I have for Atlantic Eye Institute.

    Angela. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

    From my first appointment until going in for PRK, Dr.Shmunes and the staff were nice, easy to understand and helpful. They made the process less intimidating and made me feel important as a patient. Everything was efficient and professional.

    Rusty. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

    Restaurants: Gresslins, Angel Inn, YMing, Gifto s Lahore Karah and Gidleigh

    #gifto travel
    #

    Gresslins, Angel Inn, YMing, Gifto’s Lahore Karah and Gidleigh Park

    GRESSLINS 15.5/20

    Tel: 020-7794 8386.

    Address: 13 Heath Street, London NW3.

    Food Modern European.

    Price: 14.95- 28 a head without wine.

    On its way to becoming a veteran of the Hampstead restaurant scene, which doesn’t have many veterans of quality. Revamped decoration has given the place more personality. The food always has it – pretty much finger-on-the-pulse stuff, but with a serious knack behind it. Modern European includes nods to the east (raw fish), south (couscous), west (salsa) and north (strudel). But assured handling of ingredients and sound technique means that the flavours come out singing in unison rather than a gustatory cacophony.

    Food: British European.

    Price: 11- 29.50 a head without wine.

    There you are, pedalling (or striding) up hill and down dale, particularly up hill, and at the top of a particularly tiresome hill you happen across the Angel Inn; that’s when you know what happiness is. Happiness comes in the shape of a fine old building with lots of snug rooms with beams and fires in season; of cheerful and kindly service; of spot-on Black Sheep bitter and a prodigious wine list, some of the classier numbers being sold by the glass; and food which usually combines top-class local ingredients, a ray or two of Mediterranean sunshine with a Yorkshireman’s sense of proportion.

    Address: 35-36 Greek Street, London W1.

    Food: Northern Chinese.

    Price: 10- 25 a head without wine.

    A bit of an unsung hero of the Chinese restaurant world. Heroine to be exact, for the proprietor and guiding spirit of the coolly elegant Yming is the charmingly elegant Christine Yau, the moving force behind the school of Chinese cookery recently set up at Westminster College. Yming under her hand (there was a short and unhappy interregnum) has devoted itself to some of the less well-known corners of Chinese cooking with exemplary consistency, and consistently exemplary results. Some of the dishes show the high seasoning characteristic of Northern Chinese cooking, and there are some unusual dishes involving long, slow cooking (belly pork; lamb). The service is distinctly not of the bang-it-down-in-front-of-you school we know and love, and the wine list makes for some interesting food/wine matching games.

    GIFTO’S LAHORE KARAHI 13/20

    Tel: 020-8813 8669.

    Address: 162-164 The Broadway, Southall, Middlesex. Food: Indian.

    Price: 7- 14 a head without wine.

    Tasteful it ain’t. Tasty, certainly, but the frontage of Gifto’s is an assault on the eyeballs, and things don’t get any easier when you walk in. Lighting seems specifically designed to show up every wrinkle, bag, nip and tuck in brilliant detail. But never mind that. We’re here for the food not the fantasy, as are hundreds of others. Karahi is a method of cooking that involves impaling seasoned meats on flat skewers like broad swords and grilling them. These masterpieces of the barbecuer’s art are served with equally spectacularly good breads. And that’s it. Well, that’s karahi for you, but it is not the limit of Gifto’s range by any means. They also do ace puris, a splendid sag gosht (lamb curry) and karela gosht (lamb with bitter melon). Disarmingly cheerful service. Always busy.

    GIDLEIGH PARK 18.5/20

    Address: Chagford, Devon.

    Luxury incarnate. Cosseting on an Olympian scale. A place to remove all the care from your shoulders (except for the bill, of course). The whole place runs with smooth, or highly tuned, power which is delicately geared to individual sensitivities – more Bentley Mulsanne than Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. And Michael Caines’s cooking is of a piece. His years at Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons and Jamin show in the fabulous technical skill with which he holds a multitude of ingredients in precise relationships with lightness, intensity and clarity. Paradoxically, perhaps, the results are rich in sensation, but infinitely rewarding. Wine list of legendary proportions. Not cheap, but neither is a trip to watch Manchester United these days, and meals last longer than a game of two halves.

    Kudremukh National Park

    Understand Edit

    The park consists of 600 km² of undulating mountains and tropical wet evergreen forest. It began its existence as a Reserved Forest in 1916, and was designated a national park in 1987. Kudremukh means ‘horse face’, and is in reference to the appearance of a mountain peak located within the park. Kudremukh (Kannada: ಕುದುರೆಮುಖ) also spelled Kuduremukha is a mountain range in Chikkamagaluru district, in Karnataka, India. It is also the name of a small hill station town situated near the mountain, about 48 kilometers from Karkala and about 20 kilometers from Kalasa. The name Kuduremukha (as it is known by the natives) literally means ‘horse-face’ (in the local language Kannada) and refers to a particular picturesque view of a side of the mountain that resembles the same. It was also referred to as ‘Samseparvata’, historically since it was approached from Samse village.

    The town of Kudremukh is primarily an iron ore mining town where the government run Public Sector Kudremukh Iron Ore Company Ltd. (KIOCL) operated till the last decade. It is noted for its scenic beauty. Owing to the dense forests, sighting wildlife can be challenging, though the area is rich in wildlife. Nonetheless the drive through the forest ranges can be enchanting and exhilarating. Three important rivers, the Tunga, the Bhadra and the Nethravathi are said to have their origin here. A shrine of goddess Bhagavathi and a Varaha image, 1.8 m within a cave are the main attractions.

    The Tunga river and Bhadra river flow freely through the parklands. Kadambi waterfalls area definite point of interest for anyone who travels to the spot. The animals found there include the malabar civet, wild dogs, sloth bear and spotted deer.

    Great National Park Lodges

    From Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to Alaska’s Glacier Bay, these historic lodges deliver location and creature comforts.

    Great National Park Lodges

    You pull yourself out of bed, bring your coffee to the front porch, and there—right in front of you—is the vast expanse of the Grand Canyon.

    That’s the appeal of staying at El Tovar, which has graced the rim of the canyon since 1905. But it’s hardly alone; you’ll find great national park lodges all over the U.S. and Canada. And staying at one doesn’t mean camping and freeze-dried dinners. The best lodges offer gourmet food, personalized service, and rustic yet often elegant interiors.

    Many are landmarks dating back to the park system’s early days. In 1903, officials at the Northern Pacific Railroad were inspired to create a lodge with local logs and stone. The result, Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park, has a towering lobby that became a model for national park architecture. For something a bit more modern, try the 23 renovated suites and heated outdoor pool at Alta Crystal Resort by Mount Rainier, WA.

    You might even encounter a celebrity or prime minister during your stay. (The El Tovar staff once had to hush Paul McCartney because a guest complained about his piano playing.) But that doesn’t mean the prices are out of reach. Double rooms start at about $180 at El Tovar and $165 at Oregon’s Crater Lake Lodge.

    Find out how the right lodge will improve your next national park visit.

    Big In Japan: Abandoned – Gulliver’s Kingdom – Theme Park #egypt

    #gullivers travel
    #

    Gulliver s Kingdom Theme Park, built in the shadow of Japan s Mount Fuji with oodles of government stimulus money, was a sprawling white elephant that existed for only 10 years. Today there s little if any trace of the abandoned theme park. its ruins, or Gulliver himself but the eerie and unsettling images captured by a legion of intrepid “haikyo” explorers.

    Time and Tied

    Gulliver s Kingdom was a failed theme park located near Kawaguchi-machi, Yamanashi prefecture, Japan. The park opened in 1997 and typified the “bridge to nowhere” construction projects Japan s government and banking sector championed in the 1990s.

    Though intended to boost the economy out of its post-bubble doldrums, white elephants like Gulliver s Kingdom created some short-term construction jobs but little permanent employment.

    Gulliver s Kingdom was backed financially by the Niigata Chuo Bank. which later collapsed into a sea of red ink and toxic, non-performing loans. As it morphed into a so-called Zombie Bank, the Niigata Chuo Bank was ordered to clear its books of unprofitable assets, of which Gulliver s Kingdom was one: they had lent the venture around $350 million. In October of 2001, the unpopular theme park shut its Brobdingnagian doors for the last time.

    On the face of it, Gulliver s Kingdom had a few things going for it. Its location, for one thing – nestled in Kamikuishiki village at the foot of Mount Fuji. About 25 million tourists descend upon Mount Fuji s environs each year and as beautiful as it is, how long can one look at a dormant volcano?

    And about that location Mount Fuji has a dark side, most notably the Aokigahara area where seemingly oblivious project planners decided to build Gulliver s Kingdom. Ranked sixth by the website Cracked.com on their list of The 6 Creepiest Places on Earth. Aokigahara is Japan s “suicide forest” said to be the second most popular suicide location after San Francisco s Golden Gate Bridge. On the bright side, if the kids are driving you nuts after an afternoon spent at Gulliver s Kingdom well, perish that thought.

    Bad enough Gulliver s Kingdom had a suicide forest as its neighbor, the park s other neighbors were much, much worse. Kamikuishiki village is notorious for being the location of the Aum Shinrikyo doomsday cult s headquarters and nerve gas production facility.

    (image via: UER )

    Remember Aum? They re the whack-jobs who carried out Sarin gas attacks that killed 19 people, including 12 on the Tokyo subway. On March 22nd, 1995, the cult s compound was stormed by over 1,000 police officers decked out in full-face gas masks.

    (images via: Michael John Grist and UER )

    Three years later (and one year after Gulliver s Kingdom opened), residents living nearby were still being reminded of Aum Shinrikyo s monstrous crimes. “I can still smell the chemicals sometimes when I take a walk in the morning,” said 69-year-old Norie Okamoto, who lives just 100 meters (330 ft) from one of the cult s former Sarin production facilities. Now Robert Duvall might love the smell of napalm in the morning, but you and your family out for some fun at Gulliver s Kingdom? Not *cough* so much.

    Gulliver Unravels

    (images via: Michael John Grist and K3N s Blog )

    The exposure of Aum Shinrikyo was pretty much the straw that broke the back of Gulliver s Kingdom, though there was really so much wrong with the park on so many levels one might say it was clearly doomed from the start.

    Gulliver s Kingdom wasn t actually a Six Flags style park, by the way. The closest things to the usual amusement park rides and rollercoasters were a bobsled track and a luge course – not exactly ideal for the kiddies.

    (image via: UER )

    We don t recall Gulliver s Kingdom as being a stop on the World Bobsled Tour (if there is such a thing), but maybe that whole nerve gas factory proximity thing put organizers off scheduling events there.

    (image via: MutantMandias )

    Let s not forget the immobile star of the show, a 45 meter (147.5 ft) long statue of Jonathan Swift s epic character. Even the name of the park was a misnomer. If it s Gulliver s Kingdom, what s the big guy doing securely pegged to the ground? No way to treat a king, now is it? Those are just some of the questions we ll never know the answers to and here s one more: what s inside the doors cut into Gulliver s body??

    (images via: MutantMandias )

    All that s by the by, by the way, since Gulliver s Kingdom is no more and I mean literally. After a thorough demolition in 2007, all one can see are some exposed foundations and the odd tuft of asbestos insulation snagged on twisted rebar.

    (image via: UER )

    If not for these vivid and disturbing photographic images, few would be the wiser as to what came and went at the foot of Mount Fuji almost as fast as the 2010 movie Gulliver s Travels appeared and then vanished from your local marquee. Both, as it happens, were in 3D.

    (image via: National Geographic )

    Nothing remains of Gulliver s Kingdom today but a rough concrete scar, and even this basic foundation is gradually being subsumed by dirt, dust and windblown sand. Was it all a dream? Perhaps it was and if any lessons can be learned by Gulliver s Kingdom s rise, fall and disappearance it s that if one must dream, at least dream big.

    Winter Park Lodging Deals

    Located in downtown Winter Park, The Viking Lodge and Ski Shop is an icon in Winter Park. Since 1953, we have been providing Winter Park Lodging deals to guests who just want to ski and have a great time. At The Viking Lodge you get what you pay for. The carpets are old, the walls are thin, and the TV’s are not flat screen.  But we won’t break your budget; we offer cheap accommodations in an old ski lodge at a great location in downtown Winter Park. Seriously, your search for Winter Park hotels can stop here – we have just what you need!

    We have 21 rooms; from VERY small to apartments.  All rooms have private baths and color televisions; box style televisions, yes they are old TV’s, but you should be outside – not sitting in your room watching TV. Pool, gym, ice sculptures, room service, robes, bell boys, 24 hour front desk, spa – this is a list of stuff we don’t have.  However, we do have clean rooms, a great downtown location, hot tub, game room, friendly staff, and the best dirt parking lot in Winter Park – we’re telling you, it’s a great deal!

    We don’t do daily maid service or mints on pillows, but if you ask we will clean your room and find a mint somewhere. If you’d rather be surfing the web than skiing, riding, biking, hiking, reading, chatting with friends, or meeting new ones, you’ll be pleased to know that we have Wi-Fi in the lobby.  I suppose some have to work anyway.

    24 hour front desk service available.

    We keep our prices reasonable, especially for Winter Park Lodging, and promise you a clean, comfortable, warm room with a private bath and cable TV, which is exactly why you should be booking right now!

    Coming Soon – We’re Remodeling the Lodge

    The Viking Lodge is a work in progress; despite all attempts to the contrary, we are becoming more impressive on a daily basis.  Some rooms even have tile in the bathrooms, new sinks, and fancy bedspreads and curtains.

    Complementary toilet paper available with every visit.

    Kudremukh National Park

    Understand Edit

    The park consists of 600 km² of undulating mountains and tropical wet evergreen forest. It began its existence as a Reserved Forest in 1916, and was designated a national park in 1987. Kudremukh means ‘horse face’, and is in reference to the appearance of a mountain peak located within the park. Kudremukh (Kannada: ಕುದುರೆಮುಖ) also spelled Kuduremukha is a mountain range in Chikkamagaluru district, in Karnataka, India. It is also the name of a small hill station town situated near the mountain, about 48 kilometers from Karkala and about 20 kilometers from Kalasa. The name Kuduremukha (as it is known by the natives) literally means ‘horse-face’ (in the local language Kannada) and refers to a particular picturesque view of a side of the mountain that resembles the same. It was also referred to as ‘Samseparvata’, historically since it was approached from Samse village.

    The town of Kudremukh is primarily an iron ore mining town where the government run Public Sector Kudremukh Iron Ore Company Ltd. (KIOCL) operated till the last decade. It is noted for its scenic beauty. Owing to the dense forests, sighting wildlife can be challenging, though the area is rich in wildlife. Nonetheless the drive through the forest ranges can be enchanting and exhilarating. Three important rivers, the Tunga, the Bhadra and the Nethravathi are said to have their origin here. A shrine of goddess Bhagavathi and a Varaha image, 1.8 m within a cave are the main attractions.

    The Tunga river and Bhadra river flow freely through the parklands. Kadambi waterfalls area definite point of interest for anyone who travels to the spot. The animals found there include the malabar civet, wild dogs, sloth bear and spotted deer.
