jueves, junio 23rd, 2011

One need not be an environmentalist to be concerned about the survival of the species on the planet. Think of the farmers in China, who must now pay for their apple trees are pollinated because there are not enough bees. And not just bees that are declining. As a direct result of human activity, species are becoming extinct at a rate a thousand times higher than considered natural. Ecosystems are suffering too. 20% of coral reefs have been destroyed in recent decades and another 20% is seriously threatened.

Stress-free travel tips – Part II

– Bring your ID and passport, provided. It is important to take these two forms of identity if we leave the country, although not compulsory to have both (if you travel by the European Economic Community), because the key is to bring several documents.
