Wife catches husband red-handed with 37s

Wife catches husband red-handed with "other female"

Kristy and Dave were on vacation on San Cristobal Island in the Galapagos. It's a beautiful part of Ecuador where the pace is relaxed and the surroundings are beautiful. On an evening walk along the beachfront, Kristy decided to go to a nearby souvenir store. She left her husband, Dave unsupervised for a few minutes as she did so. He was sitting on a park bench beside the beach with the understanding that she would not be gone long. But in five minutes, a lot can happen. Moments after she walked away, a large, female sea lion waddled across the sidewalk and decided to climb up on the bench not far from Dave. This is not unusual behavior for San Cristobal sea lions. They live in complete harmony with locals and the tourists, often sleeping on sidewalks, quiet roads, gutters, and on any bench or table that is located near the beach. They spend a lot of their day and most of their nights sleeping. They can be found in flower planters, under shrubs, on unattended boats or anywhere that a sea lion thinks makes a good spot for a nap.

Man Prepares For A Trip By Running On A Treadmill With Luggage

This video is one that is just a great watch because it is something that almost everyone can relate to. Most people who have ever traveled anywhere by plane have had that terrifying moment where they think they will miss their flight. Sometimes when a flight is delayed, this creates a real problem for travelers. If your plane pulls into the terminal later than expected and you have a connecting flight, you can be put in a real foot race. People traveling are often seen literally running full speed through airports because of this problem. They may only have five or ten minutes to get to their next flight. This may not seem like a huge stressful problem, but it definitely can depend on other circumstances. This is an issue when those five or ten minutes have to be used by running through the airport if the traveler’s connecting flight is on the other side of the airport. The flip side of that situation is when people are laid over for hours and hours between connecting flights. That problem is sometimes equally as frustrating. The man portrayed in this video has figured out exactly what he needs to do to make his pace of walking from one gate to another as fluid and as easy as he possibly can. He is preparing for his trek through the airport by running on a treadmill. Wait though… he is not just running on the treadmill for normal exercise. As viewers will see in the video, he is carrying his luggage right along with him while running on the piece of exercise equipment! This is actually an extremely clever solution that most have never considered doing before. In addition to that, it is hilarious! Even the most avid runners can struggle when they have to catch a connecting flight at the airport. This is because most of the population is not necessarily used to running with baggage! You may be able to run nonstop for miles and miles at the best of conditions, but can you do it while dragging fifty or hundred pounds of luggage right along with you? Most people cannot affirmatively answer that question. No matter how well a person is prepared physically, dragging all of the belongings along with them would be exhausting and taxing for just about anyone. It looks like the man in this video has created a solution to that problem. Surely, he will inspire many other people to do the same. Next time you have to make it to another gate for a connecting flight in an airport and only have a few minutes to get to the boarding place, you may wish that you have had prepared in the same way as this man! While the video does not give any insight into the man’s trip and how it went, viewers everywhere hope that this traveler will give an update in the near future. This is a creative solution to a common problem that has never been seen before.

Russians dress as "human bus" in attempt to get across vehicle-only bridge

Local security in Vladivostok, Russia, caught four people disguised as a bus in an attempt to cross the city's Zolotoy Bridge, which is closed to pedestrians in 2015 for safety reasons. The existing walkway on the bridge is too narrow and there have been attempts to jump off the bridge. Many locals have protested the decision to ban pedestrians from accessing the bridge. The bridge opened in 2012 is the fastest way to get to the downtown on foot than going through traffic and potentially getting stuck in congestion. The four ingenious Russians came up with a technically feasible solution to overcome the walkthrough ban by dressing up as "human bus" to cross the bridge. However their happy journey came to an unfortunate end when a suspicious patrol agent decided to pull them over and asked for license and registration.

Guests at traditional Amazon village eat monster grubs

Chontacuro grubs are enormous larvae of a weevil that burrows into palma trees in the Amazon basin, in Ecuador, Colombia, Peru and Brazil. They get their name from the Kichwa words “Chonta” for the palma tree that they inhabit and feast on, and the word “curo” which means worm. Several indigenous tribes along the rivers consider them a staple part of their diet, and even a delicacy. They are valued for their nutritional properties, adding a generous portion of protein and fat to a diet that is high in vegetables and fruits. Aboriginal peoples believe that chontacuro have healing properties, curing infections, asthma, gastritis, and arthritis. Ecotourists on a visit to a traditional village were given a rare and educational insight into the culture of the indigenous people. Margot and Erika demonstrated methods of farming, fabrication, and food preparation, including the famous chontacuro grub. They explained how the palma trees are farmed to yield fruit, chontaduro until the trees reach four years of age. The fruit is less edible at this point and the trees are cut down. The trunks are left on the ground, an invitation for the enormous black chontacuro beetles to come and lay their eggs inside. After four months, the trunks are hollow inside. They are cut open to harvest more than 40 grubs each which will have grown to 5-8cm in length (3 inches). The hollowed trunks are then used for construction of huts and other structures. Margot and Erika offered the raw grubs to the Canadian tourists and gave them a close look at the wriggling insects. Not surprisingly, the Canadians politely requested the cooked version, choosing grilled grubs from wooden skewers that had been cooking on the fire in the hut. The cooked grubs resemble pale shrimp kebabs. The grubs have a tough rubbery exterior that requires serious chewing. The inside holds a greasier texture with a taste similar to shrimp basted with bacon fat. The heads are crunchy and unremarkable in taste. While the overall taste wasn’t as bad as imagined, none of our Canadian friends requested second helpings. Plantains, boiled yucca, and fish were served with the grubs, along with ahi, a spicy salsa type dish that has a very pleasant taste and an impressive level of heat. Villages like this one welcome tourists for an opportunity to share their culture and learn their ways of sustainable harvest. The villagers also offer the opportunity to purchase unique and beautiful crafts made of locally sourced materials. This mutually beneficial arrangement offers a chance to understand the people and it provides an alternative to the lucrative, but destructive oil mining that would otherwise be necessary. Ecotourism provides a positive and sustainable means of income without displacing indigenous tribes, changing landscapes and destroying habitat. If you ever get a chance to try a food as unique as the chontacuro grub, why not close your eyes and give it a try?
