Travel to Morocco in Winter

Travel to Morocco in Winter
Most people think of Morocco’s hot deserts with golden dunes, it’s bustling outdoor markets, nighttime street food vendors, and sunny beaches. And while travel to Morocco in Spring and Summer is considered the best time of year, travel to Morocco in winter has its own virtues, not the least of which it’s an easy 7-hour flight from New York to plan an exotic adventure during the holidays.

State Memorial for Tigress Machli of Ranthambore National Park, India

State Memorial for Tigress Machli of Ranthambore National Park, India
The legendary tigress Machli was given a state memorial service yesterday recognizing the deep respect Indian government officials have for their endangered Bengal tiger population. Machli was 19 years old, far beyond the average age of 12-15 years. She was perhaps the most photographed tiger of all time as she became accustomed to the presence of humans in the park often revealing herself to park vistors and conservationists studying her movement and behaviors.  The territory of Rathanbore National Park that she ruled included several lakes around the Ranthambore Fort where crocodiles dominated the shore. Macheli was also we'll known for this 2008 video where she attacks and kills a 14 foot long crocodile!  She was featured in the National Geographic documentary Tiger Queen, and also honored on a postal stamp.    As we recently reported in a recent blog tiger populartions in India are growing: Good News of the Day: Tiger Populations Are...
