Shipwrecks to Camel Treks – Navigating Mauritania's Highlights Part 4 – Chinguetti's Old Library and a Medical Emergency

Posted By TeamHazardRides 6 days ago on Travel

http://www.teamhazardridesagain.com - In the past, Chinguetti was not only a major trading post in the Sahara Desert, but a major stop on the pilgrimage path to Mecca. It is also considered the seventh holiest Muslim city in the world.

There are 5 ancient libraries in Chinguetti, but only one or two that regularly open to the public to give tours. There are thousands of books in the care of the families that built these desert libraries so long ago. Most of them are religious, but many cover subjects like astronomy and mathematics. Muslim scholars from every field are represented here.

While the curator had some wonderful stories, when my husband's blood sugar plummeted, we brought some drama of our own.

Walking in Jakarta with a Blind Man

Posted By TeamHazardRides 28 days ago on Travel

http://www.teamhazardridesagain.com - The first few days in Jakarta were rough for Tim. The rough sidewalk in front of our hostel was crowded on one side by a bulging hedge and the other by endless traffic. Every few steps there was another obstacle, sometimes a step up, sometimes down, things to dodge. And our favorite, a step down immediately followed by a step up. None of it was even, or smooth or remotely predictable. The post Walking in Jakarta with a Blind Man appeared first on Team Hazard Rides Again.

Toraja Funerals – Life, Death and Mummies in Indonesia

Posted By TeamHazardRides 30 days ago on Travel

http://www.teamhazardridesagain.com - The people of Toraja, Indonesia, on the island of Sulawesi have an amazing approach to death. Funerals last four days and take years to plan, during which time the dead remain in the home; animals are sacrificed and hundreds of people attend. Corpses of ancestors are removed from their cliffside graves and re-dressed regularly. Even the baby graves of the past have an amazing story.

We toured the region with a local who showed us everything - and we share it with you.
