Cool stuff to know about every country in the world. Everyone knows which is the world's highest mountain, but do you know which country banned chewing gum? Or what's the world's stinkiest fruit? Or who invented roller skates? Or which building leans more than the Leaning Tower of Pisa? Or where can you eat fried spiders as a snack? Here at Lonely Planet we decided to make a book about the world's countries for children, not parents. The world is a very big place, and in The Not-for-Parents Travel Book we've concentrated on the really interesting bits to create a snapshot of what each country is like. (Warning to parents: these might not be the same "really interesting bits" that you like...where to buy coffee, how many stars the hotel has, what's the phone number for the airport, blah, blah, blah.) In this book are the epic events, amazing animals, hideous histories, funky foods, and crazy facts that make the world's 200 countries so fascinating. Each country has a page to itself--so tiny Tuvalu gets as much space as superpower USA.

Taught by Geeta S. Iyengar and produced by IYNAUS 5 discs: lecture and asana for 197 minutes; pranayama for 103 minutes; asana for 232 minutes; pranayama for 72 minutes; and asana for 211 minutes. In his blessings for the National US Convention, BKS Iyengar encouraged the organizers to explore the journey through the layers of understanding as experienced through the kosas. Geeta addressed the theme of the kosas by teaching the dynamic action and layers of awareness in asanas and pranayamas.

The General's Son In 1997, a tragedy struck the family of Israeli-American Miko Peled when his beloved niece Smadar was killed by a suicide bomber in Jerusalem. That event propelled Peled onto a journey of discovery, pushing him to re-examine many of the beliefs he'd grown up with as the son and grandson of leading figures in Israel's political-military elite, and transforming him into an activist in the struggle f Full description
Advantages: works quickly and effectively, inexpensive, reveving and refreshing Disadvantages: None
It has a pleasant and refreshing aroma and is the perfect traveling companion. It?s lightweight and small enough to pack into the smallest of bags or pockets. I personally find it a reviving and stimulating smell and I shall continue to use it for times of nausea in general and not simply for motion sickness reasons.
It?s a small price to pay for the relief of the unpleasant...
Advantages: extremely comprehensive and accurate, down to the point Disadvantages: slightly confusing structure, rather dry
As I explained in detail in an opinion I wrote a little while ago about Dorling Kindersley's Eyewitness series, there are generally three types of travel guides which differ in structure:
- Geographical structure: grouping sights by regions or neighbourhoods
- Alphabetical structure: dictionary-like listing of sights regardless of location...
Advantages: Good transport links, good range of facilities, the area is generally well maintained Disadvantages: not suited for people that want a busier and bustling atmosphere
...ble it is a typical high street layout with shops on each side of the road. The road itself is quite long and strethes for approximately 1 mile. There are a few zebra crossings at different stage of the road. I would say that there is not much choice for crossing the road which can be seen as a bit of disadvantage. The ambiance and atmosphere is generally quiet, but it does get busy during the weekends. Gener...
