It's a great national symbol! I've visited and photographed Merlion a number of years ago, but never a photo with me in it.

Re: June 21, 2016: Medieval Budapest in the 21st Century

TravelingCanuck ·
Such an awesome post. For me one of the my favorite parts of travel is imagining the people who lived in the past and think of them in their daily lives. How much do we have in common with them and how much are our lives different then theirs were. Thanks for a great look at the history of Budapest.

Thank you TravelingCanuck! I feel the same way you do about wondering what it was like so any centuries ago. Our surroundings have changed, but I am sure they were concerned about the same things we are: love, finances, jobs, politics, religion, family and friends.

I did not plunge but did sprinkle some of the Ganges on my head. Like the Baptists and Methodists there may be controversy about which is more effective but I truly enjoyed the morning.

Most Popular River Cruises in India

Sunil Kumar ·
A river cruise provides an escape from the constant commotion surrounding our everyday lives. As you sail along the river at a leisurely pace, with lovely sights greeting your eyes, you realize there is much to appreciate in this unhurried journey. India, with its impressive inland waterways, provides wonderful opportunities for river cruising. From the backwaters of Kerala to the might waters of Brahmaputra, every cruise gifts you with a memory to be cherished or a moment to be valued.

Re: Tuktoyaktuk: A village on the Arctic Coast of Canada

PHeymont ·
Thank you so much for this article, and for taking part in TravelGumbo. This is one of the most fascinating blogs I've ever read, about a place and a people I knew almost nothing about. Their relation to the permafrost and the rest of their environment is fascinating, and the Pingos...well, the idea of hills that are not hills, or not made of earth and rock...wow!

Re: Tuktoyaktuk: A village on the Arctic Coast of Canada

VERY interesting. This is the only way I'll ever know about such a place, having given Canada a try and come running back to California after 2 winters. Note I count my time there in winters. But nothing like this in Montreal.

Thanks for this post, Tom, and I also appreciate your involvement with TravelGumbo. A few questions. The town seems too small for even basic tourist services. Did you just camp, or was there someplace you could stay? Also, a question about waste water. With permafrost, how is this drained from the homes so that it doesn't freeze in the pipes?

Hi Tom. I live in the UK. We're not lovers of cold weather, but we did have a night 10 months ago when it fell below freezing for a few hours. Some say "Global Warming" but I say the Jet Stream got stuck in its usual "Summer" position and Caribbean winds kept us warm. We don't have a mosquito problem here ( 200 miles north of London) but I'm curious to know. Are there any noticeable changes to your weather ? Longer summers or wetter winters ? I remember studying the shifting Polar Ice Caps...

Re: Tuktoyaktuk: A village on the Arctic Coast of Canada

I don't know much about global warming. I suspect that pollution contributes to it, but these things also happen on their own as we know from ice ages and warming periods in the past. I have noticed long periods of warm weather but then it gets cold again. I have read that the Arctic ice is melting but this coming winter is predicted to be very cold here in Canada. Although I have travelled in the Arctic, I have not spent enough time there to observe any climate changes. There are scientists...
