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.

This massive country has so much to offer and has somehow managed to fly under the radar for far too long. This summer (June-September) is the ultimate chance for travelers hungry for unrivaled adventure to come and see what Brazil is all about (and it’s a lot more than Carnival and Rio de Janeiro!). Whether you travel to Brazil...
