(N.Morgan) Today in my cyber travels, I’ve put together a collection of  magnificent places to see and wonder over. In this crazy world of computers and jobs and political crisis, I think we forget there’s beauty all around us to be enjoyed and explored. Let’s see where our travels take us today.

      Was curious about the trees on Socotra and found this at Wiki:

      One of the most striking of Socotra’s plants is the dragon’s blood tree (Dracaena cinnabari), which is a strange-looking, umbrella-shaped tree. Its red sap was thought to be the dragon’s blood of the ancients, sought after as a dye, and today used as paint and varnish.


      The long geological isolation of the Socotra archipelago and its fierce heat and drought have combined to create a unique and spectacular endemic flora. Botanical field surveys led by the Centre for Middle Eastern Plants (part of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh) indicate that 307 out of the 825 (37%) plant species on Socotra are endemic, i.e., they are found nowhere else on Earth.[24] The entire flora of the Socotra Archipelago has been assessed for the IUCN Red List, with 3 Critically Endangered and 27 Endangered plant species recognised in 2004.

      Yes, the bamboo jungle of Kyoto. I have been there and it is truly one of the most beautiful places I have seen in my life.

      Nice pics. Our world is full of beauty, wonder and mystery. You might be interested to know that in the castle reservoir pic, the disc shape geometry on the tops of the buildings are called ‘vimana’.
