The sounds of breaking waves crashing on rocks has got to be one of the most relaxing and satisfying sounds. I can sit there for hours enjoying the sounds especially on sunny days while I soak up the sun. It doesn't get any better than being at the intertidal zone on rocky shores during low tide. That way you get the full roar of the crashing waves with the occasional splashes. While at the intertidal zone you can also spot marine creatures such as intertidal fishes, sea anemones, limpets, crabs and shrimps in rock pools and crevices.
In Jaipur, India Since the 15th century, elephants have been used as a means of royal transportation. They carried the king of Rajasthan from the fort & around the kingdom. Although they are work animals, the same as oxen or horses, they are viewed as sacred, holy animals in the Hindu culture, which has helped in protecting them. In Jaipur's historic Amber Fort they are adorned & painted to showcase them as royal animals (they wash the water based paint off daily). The same way they have been doing for the last 500 years... #RyanEricksonPhotography
According to Hiroshi san, Japan is the 3rd safest country in world. 1st is Singapore, followed by Luxembourg at 2nd place.
Singapore area is around 719 square km with a population of 5.8M. Luxembourg area is around 2,586 square km with a population of 602,000. Japan, on the other hand, is around 337,973 square km with a population of 126M. It is much bigger in size and higher in population. This might make it more challenging to maintain order but they were able to do it. That, for me, is the most impressive.
