Mahakatu - photo by Anu Shankar

Mike, our contributor from Japan, published a photo essay on a Japanese ferry.

“Man, am I ever ready to go.  I just know one of these ferry boats is waiting for me. In Japan, they have nice ferries to take you to other islands.”

Anu, our contributor from India, describes her visit to the group of  temples of Mahakuta in Karnataka, India.

“The temples of Mahakuta date back to the 6th and 7th centuries – when the Chalukyan kings ruled Badami. The temples belong to the same time period as those at Aihole and Pattadakal, and just like them, this is not just one single temple, but a temple complex. However, unlike Aihole and Pattadakal, these temples are still being used for worship, and thus have not completely fallen into ruins.”

Carrie, one of our contributing editors, writes about her family’s experiences adapting to a new life in Chacras de Coria, Mendoza, Argentina.

“First… why did we choose to live in Chacras, rather than Mendoza city? When we arrived, we expected to live in Mendoza and spent the first few weeks looking for housing there, schools, etc. However, in the end we decided against it because most of the places we were finding were quite small and it was almost impossible to find outdoor space, so we figured with a 2 year old it might be quite difficult”
