Re: St. Martins Sea Caves, New Brunswick

Fascinating place. I love the outside shot of people about to enter the cave. My first impression was that the rock was a large tree and dwarves were about to enter a hole right above its roots.

The Canal St.-Martin area is also good for food. One of the best-regarded new bakeries, Des Idees et du Pain is on its edge, and there's a great twice-a-week open-air market between the point where it goes underground and Bastille.

Travel Rob ·
One thing that's very interesting about the open air markets there is after the markets close. The Roma gather up all that's left behind and divide it up amongst the community. Quite a sight, and I was really amazed at just how much is left

Well, now, am I disqualified from future participation in "Where in the World..."? I'd hate to have to cash out after an easy one like that. Tell me I can still play please.

I say Port Moresby can only play if he/she doesn't know where where in the world is. LOL.

I imagine this is a tough one to formulate - to make it possible to be guessed/known by someone but difficult enough to be fun. Maybe the balance for those who have gotten one right is to wait until the last day to post and then, as you say DrF, only if we don't know.

DrFumblefinger ·
My inclination is that if some one knows, they shouldn't hold back, but post. Some will be easy, some will be tougher. But making the brain work is the fun part. PHeymont is sort of running these, as much as anyone runs anything here. We'll see what his take is.

My answer would be that of course, PM can play...but if he's right too often, he'll have to start selecting and posting the new ones!

Thanks for your comment, Mimiadventures! Good food, great music, nice people -- always something great to return to. I really didn't get into the great local food very much, but Memphis is reknowned for its "soul" style cooking and, of course, its BBQ.

Re: Butterflies Everywhere at the Butterfly Farm in St. Martin

I love watching butterflies fly about and land on everyone -- especially children. It's such a simple pleasure! Never knew about this place, and it's always good to add another stop to one's (evergrowing) bucketlist. Thanks, Samantha!

Re: Butterflies Everywhere at the Butterfly Farm in St. Martin

Samantha ·
Thanks for the message DrFumblefinger. You are right. I really enjoyed watching the kids get so excited when one would land on them. Of course that scared them off, but it was still fun. Glad you enjoyed the post and was able to add to your bucket list. I know mine is huge and keeps getting longer and longer, lol.

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Oct. 1, 2014: Canal Illusion

Fascinating how our mind plays tricks with our perceptions. You know the canal is flat, but your brain, based on the visual input it gets, tells you it's "falling".

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Oct. 1, 2014: Canal Illusion

The amazing thing is that it's not just in the picture that the illusion happens...it really looks that way in "life!" I knew it could not be, but I couldn't shake the illusion until I had taken the second picture and realized I had to visualize the wall and not the water.

Dry Canals: Paris on purpose, Venice by low tides

Paul Heymont ·
Two European cities are facing dry seasons in their canals, with record low tides exposing long-unseen areas of Venice's waterways, and Paris draining its iconic Canal Saint-Martin for cleaning and repairs. In Venice, abnormal tides this year, combined with a so-far dry winter, have left water levels about 70cm (more than 2 feet) below normal. As a result, routes for the city's vaporetti, or water buses, have been curtailed because they are unable to navigate in some of the smaller canals.
