The kid on the donkey

A kid, a donkey and a machete. If this wasn't Mexico, that might be weird. When you're driving around Mexico, the one thing you really have to watch out for is nalgas (that's butt in Spanish) donkey nalgas, pig nalgas, chicken nalgas, horse nalgas, cow nalgas, goat nalgas, dog nalgas. They all stick right out there in the road and you have to be careful not to hit any nalgas!

Bridalveil Fall Yosemite

Bridalveil Fall is one of the most prominent waterfalls in the Yosemite Valley in California cascading 620 feet from a hanging valley. The Ahwahneechee tribe believed that Bridalveil Fall was home to a vengeful spirit named Pohono which guarded the entrance to the valley, and that those leaving the valley must not look directly into the waterfall lest they be cursed. They also believed that inhaling the mist of Bridalveil Fall would improve one's chances of marriage.

The primary source of Bridalveil Falls is Ostrander Lake, some 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) to the south.
When the wind blows briskly, the waterfall will appear to be falling sideways. During lesser water flow, the falls often don't reach the ground. Because of this, the Ahwahneechee Native Americans called this waterfall Pohono, which means Spirit of the Puffing Wind.
