Namibia - Land of Adventure
Open your eyes and your mind to the unspoiled wilderness areas and cultural treasures of Namibia. While the swirling sands of the vast dunes of the Namib desert beckon you into a land of compelling beauty, mountains and lakes, grasslands and bush support a large and diverse population of wildlife. The Etosha National Park alone covers 22,270 square km and is home to 340 species of birds and 144 mammal species. Save the elephant, blue wildebeest, black rhino, lion, cheetah, leopard, and many more animal treasures on your hard drive and, then, float along the Okavango River to http:// os2.iaccess.za/ travel/ namibia/ index.htm Remember, the crocodiles and hippos are waiting to greet you.

New Zealand: City of Nelson
Imagine a land of mountains, beaches and forests where fun and sun go hand in hand with the great outdoors. Take a water taxi to visit the penguins or hang out at the lakeside to take in some "Kiwi" hospitality. Enjoy the culinary delights of the annual Taste Nelson festival. Be ready for surprises, including those cranky Tasmanian Devils. This site is just waiting for you in another land Down Under at www.nelson.nz.com.

The Russian North
Come along on an electronic vacation to a wonderland of water and woods called the Russian North. It lies just south of the Arctic Circle and is home to dense forests and cool, clear lakes. Small villages dot the landscape and reflect the environment. Every item of village life, from chapels to street pavements to boats, is made of wood from the forest. Smooth granite boulders, polished by ice and big as a house, pepper the countryside. Enjoy a slide show of northern beauty at http:// www.glasnet.ru/ ~asebrant/ edut/ north_e.html.
