Cuernavaca, Mexico

A good proportion of Mexico City’s population, as well as the tourist group, like to spend some time at Cuernavaca each year – and for good reason. It compares favorably with resort centers anywhere on this continent.

On rolling land next to the mountains, Cuernavaca is full of canyons and ravines. Winding streets are shaded by trees, lined with many comfortable homes and luxuriant gardens. There are sidewalk cafés and many shops – specializing in souse and huaraches, silver, hand-blocked and hand-loomed fabrics and sport clothes.

There is plenty to see in Cuernavaca. Don’t miss the Borda Gardens and Cortes Palace in the town itself; not far from the town ar the Caves of Cacahuamilpa, the picturesque village of Tepoztlan and Lake Tequesquitengo.

Ciudad Valles, Mexico

Until the Pan American Highway came to Ciudad Valles, the place was just a sleepy little village. It is an old, old Spanish settlement, founded in 1533. Until the opening of the Centennial Highway, it was the best known tourist town between Monterrey and Mexico City and its hotels were jampacked with tourists every night. Now, with many tourists taking the other, faster route to Mexico City, the hotels along the Pan American ar having a rough time of it – which accounts for the slightly down-at-the-heels appearance of most of them.

From Ciudad Valles, Highway 70 goes west through well-engineered Sierra Mader passes to a little oasis-like citrus town called Rio Verder, and on to San Luis Potosi.

Also from Ciudad Valles, Highway 70 leads east to Tampico. Just off this road, about 10 miles east of Ciudad Valees, is the well-known resort of Taninul, a popular spa for many years. Not far away are the ruins of important Haustecan archaeological sites.

The best things are yet to come.

There is no reason for a person to be locked out in a room, feeling lonely or isolated for whatever reasons because the best things in life are yet to come.

Probably, people are tired of waiting. Tired of being promised and yet there isn’t the realization of that promise. Tired of being faced in a problem which for him, there is no way out. Indeed, to be able to understand life is to feel the mystery of it. And one sure way that you could ever feel how to identify the best for your life is to follow what your heart desires for your heart could never go wrong.

Dining Room Furniture

There are many things that I love about my home. It is not because it is not so spacious but it is the idea that even though it looks cute, there are lots of unique things that I put in it.

Aside from the fact that I have it painted with my favorite color, light yellow, I also make things in its proper setting that it will consume the space without looking too messy or uncomfortable. I have all the things accommodatingly placed in such a way that it will not make the room appear too old.

I love putting various kinds of furniture that would truly captivate the meaning and use of each part of my home. I had bought a new Dining Room Furniture which I ordered online way back last February of this year as we moved to a new house. It is made out of exotic design and unique color. The more my husband and I in the living room, the zest and the aura of dining in the place is worth a moment because of the dining furniture that we have that calls and invites us to dine with satisfaction and sit with comfort.

I believe that all things at home has a great purpose. Some are made to uplift our mood. Some are even made to invite us to improve more while others captivate us to enjoy the moment more.

That is the positive I have experience at my home. I am feeling always at the top of the world. I surely know that I find the right home because all the things inside my house uplifts and encourages me more each day. I really love my home.

Zacatecas, Mexico

Zacatecas is a few miles farther. Approaching it you dorp down into a canyon and drive under the high arches of an ancient stone aqueduct dating to the 1700’s. At one time Zacatecas was one of Mexico’s most difficult cities for the motorist to negotiate, but now a divided boulevard by-passes the town, and motorists no longer have to bounce along narrow cobbled streets.

This steep-sloped town is 8,200 feet above sea level. Some parts of town are so steep that stone-stepped sidewalks instead of streets climb the canyon walls. There is a faint pinkish cast to Zacatecas – it is the tint of local sandstone used in most of the buildings. Zacatecas has a splendid cathedral. Its huge facade is intricately carved, and its vaulted interior is supported with stone columns. Its marble altar came from Italy.

A new attraction in Zacatecas is the very interesting project at the top of Cerro de la Bufa, a mountain northeast of the city. A blacktop road has been built to the summit of “La Bufa” where there is an ancient chapel (1728) and a pretty plaza. The view from atop La Bufa is spectacular. The road starts near the University, at the south end of town, and there is ample parking.

Valle de Bravo, Mexico

Some 80 miles southewest of Toluca, and reached via a paved road, is Valle de Bravo, and nearby Lake Avandero, an increasingly popular recreation spot with good accommodations and a top-flight 18-hole golf course. The return from Valle de Bravo to Mexico 15 can be made by an alternate paved route.

Tequila, Mexico

Just 35 easy miles west of Guadalajara is the town of Tequila, home of the liquor of the same name, and one of the most interesting tourist sights on the highway. The town was founded in 1530 by a Spanish captain, Cristobal de Oňate. Tequila liquor was first distilled here in 1600. The word “tequila”means “the rock that cuts,” referring, no doubt, to the black obsidian found in this general area.


Tequila is made from the juice of the heart of the Agave cactus, known also as “maguey.” An interesting by-product of the tequila process is the shreds from the cactus pulp, bought by brick makers in Guadalakara and mixed with clay to produce a stronger brisk.


Largest and most modern of the dozen or so distilleries is “La Perseverancia,” operated continuously since 1875 by the Sauza family. Another old and large distillery is “La Rojena,” operated since 1888 by the Cuevo family. Both plants are most interesting and both are open to the public (closed during noon).

Guaymas Missile Tracking Station, Mexico

A project of special interest to Americans is the Guaymas Missile Tracking Station, located some 11 miles south of Guaymas and about a mile west of Mexico 15 on a paved side road. You may recall that once of the astronauts, while on a space voyage, was heard to remark as his space capsule passed over this tracking station, “Hello Guaymas! Send us some enchiladas!”

San Carlos Bay, Mexico

Some 5 miles north of Guaymas, and about 15 miles west of Mexico 15, is the San Carlos Bay development that has become quite popular with American tourists. The multi-million-dollar complex is made up of a luxury motel, a yacht club and marina, a large trailer village, and a subdivision of seashore homes and cottages. The resort is reached by a good, paved road. There is a landing strip for private planes.

Koalas, Lone Pine Sanctuary, Queensland, Australia

The Lone Pine Sanctuary in Brisbane saves the Koala from extinction. Actually, the sanctuary;s success in breeding these animals in captivity is a triumph for conservation as others are constantly being released into parks and state forests. These lovable marsupial is mainly nocturnal, so his favorite pastime during the day is sleeping in the fork of a tree. On the other hand, if he should have the misfortune to be disturbed, he will peer down with a charmingly vacant expression at the intruder for a few minutes before settling deeper into the branches.

Great Lake, Tasmania, Australia


Like many of Tasmania's lakes, the Great Lake seems shy in revealing her beauty early in the morning, as wispy clouds of mist linger over the water the initial fog disappears. Situated on the central plateau five kilometres from the edge of the Western Tiers escarpment and 1034 metres (3388 feet) above sea level, this lake was originally a series of smaller lakes which were flooded in 1922 when the dam at Miena was built. Until the enlargement of Lake Pedder, the Great Lake was the largest in Tasmania. From this point, a tunnel carries water through the Western Tiers to the Poatina Power Station. The lake covers an area of about 170 square kilometres and provides wonderful fishing as trout were introduced as far back as 1864. At Breona, lying by the northern end of the lake, holiday shacks are grouped along the banks.

Acuvue Moist

Our eyes are the most important part of our body. They are the windows of our soul. And that is why, they should be well taken care of. The eyes need acuvue moist in order to protect them.

I am particular with my eyes. I always want to see clearly. I want to see the beauty of life in a real sense. That is why, securing my eyes with acuvue moist is the best idea.

I believe that the most best things in life comes with great reflection and that reflection comes in good eyes. I know I can see all things in a clear view with acuvue moist.

That is why, if you want to see the wonders of life, there is always a reason to live life accordingly and it starts with acuvue moist.

Aromatheraphy

Aromatherapy is one of the most popular forms of complementary medicine. The "aroma" in the therapy is the fragrant essence, or essential oil, secreted by the cells of plants and trees. Essential oils act on the mind and the body simultaneously via the skin and olfactory system (the sense of smell) to balance and heal, making it an ideal, gentle medicine that is not therapeutic, but also enjoyable.

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for religious and magical rituals, embalming, and healing. Dr. Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, the French chemist who coined the term "aromatherapy", discovered one of the properties of lavender oil when he accidentally burned his hand in his laboratory and inadvertently applied the oil to the wound - the lavender soothed the pain, speeded the healing and prevented scarring. Today, medical doctors and aromatherapists continue to research these amazing elixirs of life as they grow ever-more popular as an integral part of modern living.

Chinese Pagodas

Chinese pagodas are towers with a number of floors, each with its own roof. Pagodas serve as Buddhist shrines.

Pagodas often have eight sides and up to 12 floors. They may be made of wood, brick or stone. Each story has a roof of colored, glazed tiles. This curves up at the eaves.

Pagodas are a mixture of Chinese and Indian building styles. The shape of pagodas came from old Chinese watch-towers, which were also built up in stages. But the idea of towers as shrines came from Indian towers and domes called stupas. Like stupas, many Chinese pagodas are crowned by what looks like several umbrellas, one above the other. This was a sign that a building had been raised in honour of a royal person.

As long ago as AD 516, the Chinese built a wooden pagoda about 328 feet tall. Most early wooden towers fell down long ago. Some survive in Japan, where this building style was copied.
