Corner View - Holiday Photos

I take every opportunity to travel, and so usually have three or four holidays each year. Last month I was in Tanzania. I did what I usually do: booked the flight and the first night's accommodation, and then took it from there. The result was a short stay in the capital city of Dar Es Salaam, some time on the exotic island of Zanzibar, and finally, a safari in Mikumi National Park, which is where these photos were taken. We were lucky to happen upon a lioness drinking at a water hole and then followed her back to her three cubs.

Next month I am going to Ethiopia, which will be my 102nd country. Only 91 more to go!

Corner View - Orange

The theme of this week's Corner View is orange so here, for no logical reason, is some random orangeness from around the world. The countries where the photos were taken are, from top to bottom, Panama, Peru, Mexico, Spain, Tanzania and Morocco.

Incidentally, as I'm in a random mood, the best tasting oranges I ate anywhere in the world were in Shiraz, Iran: the place where Shiraz grapes originally come from. Must be something about the soil there.
