Regina, Canada. A small town in Saskatchewan. Blogger Wade accompanies me on the streets of this pretty town. In the center is the Central Park Wascana. By the way, this park is the fourth largest in North America. Photos from the Park Wascana:

Evening in the park lit gas lamps. During a walk in the park creates a feeling as if you're in dreamland. Photo alleys of the park:

And in Regina very much graffiti. Wherever you go, wherever found graffiti. Here are some pictures of houses decorated with graffiti:

Thanks to blogger Lena, I visited today in Chukotka. This vast territory, which lives its own life. It has its own laws - the laws of the North. Maybe the people living in Chukotka someone seem "wild". But everything is very relative. Would greatly differ Chukchi, who chews raw venison and a European, who chews the same as caribou, just boiled? Let's see pictures, captured this wonderful region.

Let's take a bike ride around Lake Inle, located in Myanmar (Burma). Road shows a girl from Thailand Cocodrilo.
First, have breakfast and then go.

And this - our means of transportation.

About 1 km from the town we see a pointer to the temple Shwe Yaunghwe Kyaung.

Monastery Shwe Yaunghwe Kyaung built on wooden stilts with a ladder made of cement, leading to a wooden building. The building of this monastery is interesting for its oval windows.

Children are children.

And now we come to the lake. Local people living around the lake and on the lake. They grow tomatoes, melons and other vegetables that are in demand in the markets.

The lake is very beautiful and people are very hospitable. They will always be glad to see you.

Thank Cocodrilo for an interesting journey. You can see photo reports on trips to Laos, Vietnam, Burma, Indonesia, in an excellent blog Baakpae.
