Walking On Frozen Baikal, The Deepest And Oldest Lake On Earth To Capture Its Otherworldly Beauty

According to photographer Kristina Makeeva (previously): “Baikal is impressive. It’s the deepest and the cleanest lake on Earth. When we were planning a trip, we didn’t even suspect it is so wonderful, majestic and fairy. We were raptured over its beauty so much, that we almost didn’t sleep all 3 days we were here.”

“Lake Baikal is about 600km in length. The thickness of it reaches 1,5-2 meters. This ice can tolerate the vehicle of about 15 tonnes, but sometimes we saw cars that had been fallen down. Ice has different patterns in different parts of the lake. It happens because water is freezing layer by layer. Especially it is very interesting to find a fish or a branch in the ice. The ice in Baikal is the most transparent in the world! And this is true. You can see everything till the bottom: fish, green stones, plants and bluish gulf. The water in the lake is so clear, that you can see various objects on the depth of 40 meters,” Kristina Makeeva told Bored Panda.

“Baikal is also the deepest lake. The genesis and the age still provoke scientific arguments, so let’s just remember, that Baikal is the biggest reservoir of fresh water on Earth, and its depth is 1642 meters. Apart from Baikal, there are only two lakes that are deeper than 1000 meters: lake Tanganyika (1470 m) and Caspian Sea (1025 m).”

“In some parts ice is slippery like the mirror. You can shoot ideal reflections. A lot of travelers are moving about on skates, bicycles or sledge. Some of them are walking for several hundreds of kilometers and are sleeping in the tents on ice. Marvelous place. Very atmospheric.”

“Ice is cracking all the time. When the frost is very heavy, cracks divide ice on different areas. The length of these cracks is 10-30 km, and the width is 2-3 m. Cracks happen every year, approximately at the same areas of the lake. The are followed by a loud crack that reminds of thunder or gun shot. Thanks to the cracks, the fish in the lake don’t die from the lack of oxygen. Generally, ice of Baikal carries a lot of enigmas, the majority of formations provokes the interest of scientists.”

“Ice on Baikal is there till May. But in April no one drives on it. The bubbles in the ice are developed from the gas methane that is produced by algae. The only river in the world that flows from the lake is Angara that flows from Baikal. All other rivers flow into the lakes.”

“There is a legend that the Father of Baikal had 336 rivers – sons – and one daughter – Angara. All sons were flowing into Baikal to restock the water, but the daughter fell in love with Yenisei (one more river in Russia) and started to take everything from father’s water to her lover. In respond, the father Baikal threw a huge rock into his daughter and cursed her. This rock is called Shaman-Stone, and it is situated in the springhead of Angara and is considered to be it’s beginning. Baikal is the most beautiful place in the world.”

何にでもベーコン、何にでもチーズ?外国人が疑問に感じる、アメリカ人の食文化・食習慣に関する13のQ&A

chicken-waffle_pixabay


 外国の食べものの話となると、自国にはない変わった食材や調理法、味つけなどの話がメインになる。その国に根付いた食文化を知ることは、国民性をすこしだけ理解できる部分もある。

 同じ食べ物でも呼び方が違ったり、食べ方が違ったりするもんだから、食ってやっぱり奥が深い。
 
 さて、アメリカ合衆国が独立宣言をしてから242年だが、アメリカでも独自の食文化が誕生していたようだ。中には他の国の人が???となるものも。

 そこで、アメリカの食文化・食習慣に関して外国人(イギリスなどの英語圏)から発せられる疑問を集めたQ&Aがまとめられていた。

 ちなみに、回答しているのは、特にアメリカを代表するわけでもないアメリカ人なので、真偽の程は怪しいものがあるし、さらにジョークも含まれているので、ネタの1つとして見ていこう。

“Eating in Virtual Reality”: This Restaurant In Japan Fuses Food With Art For A New Immersive Experience


Kim Kyung-Hoon/Reuters

Are you looking for a completely different dinner experience? This new restaurant near Yoyogi Park will most likely fit the bill: somewhat pompously described as a place ‘that will make your life more creative’, Tree by Naked promises a mishmash of virtual reality tech, projection mapping, lighting, music and, of course, a six-course dinner set to complete the tree-themed worldview.

Tree by Naked is the brainchild of Ryotaro Muramatsu, director of the design firm Naked Inc., which is known for its beautifully intricate digital mapping media work. The immersive experience takes place in a three-story building equipped with VR technology, projection mapping, lighting, music, and other artistic features on each floor. As visitors move through the building, they follow the “Scenes of Life” storyline in which a single tree grows from sprout to maturity. Each phase of the tree’s growth is paired with one of the meal’s six courses.
