Tea Plantations in Kenya

1250 Tea Plantations in Kenya
A man walks in the early morning to start his day picking tea leaves at a plantation in Nandi Hills, in Kenya’s highlands region west of capital Nairobi, November 5, 2014. Emerald-coloured tea bushes blanketing the rolling hills of Nandi County have long provided a livelihood for small-scale farmers, helping make Kenya one of the world’s biggest tea exporters.

Venezuela Lauds World Records for Christmas Dinner “Made in Revolution”

“Venezuela praised its ‘socialist revolution’ for a culinary conquest on Saturday: Guinness World Records for the country’s beloved Christmas dinner staples. A cook-a-thon in capital Caracas landed Venezuela records for the biggest ham-filled bread, sugar cane juice infused with lemon, and “hallaca”, a cornmeal dish wrapped in plantain leaves. “Made in socialism, made in revolution”, Food Minister Yvan Bello said in a flurry of celebratory tweets. “The people are celebrating, Venezuela is a country of records, of achievements, thanks to the revolution!”, he added, feting the 20-meter bread, 12,000-liter drink and 120-meter “hallaca”. The initiative comes as Venezuelans struggle ahead of the holiday season due to shortages of basic goods and sky-high inflation that crimps purchasing power. Leftist president Nicolas Maduro has launched a plan dubbed “Operation Merry Christmas” to lower the cost of toys, clothes and appliances for shoppers amid the weakening economy. Critics blast the measures as unsustainable distractions to mask the OPEC country’s deeper problems”. – Alexandra Ulmer via Reuters.

Illegal Fishing in Zimbabwe

1193 Illegal Fishing in Zimbabwe
In this photo taken Wednesday October 29 2014, a fisherman poses with his catch on the shores of Lake Chivero, west of Harare. Illegal fishing can be hazardous in Zimbabwe, where poachers scan the banks for armed rangers and the water for crocodiles while they cast their rods. The country is in such a dire economic state that thousands of people, unable to find regular work, flock to Lake Chivero in hopes of catching fish, mostly bream, that they can sell for desperately needed income.

End of Life in Japan

The “Ruriden”, a cemetery that uses high powered LED lights to illuminate over 2,000 Buddha statues carved in crystals, is pictured in downtown Tokyo November 4, 2014. Funeral arrangements are normally left to those who have been left behind but the latest trend in Japan, which literally translates to “End of life” preparations, is for the ageing to prepare their own funerals and graves before they set off on their journey to the great beyond. With a population that is expected to shrink by nearly 30 million people over the next 50 years, the market for funerals, graves and anything related to the afterlife is still very much alive.
