Pick one, travellers

Mumbai’s entrepreneurial spirit is never in doubt. Yet, what continues to surprise us are the various ways people seek to get their message across.

A local train had a number of paper packets stuck all over its first class compartment with the help of a bit of velcro behind them. These packets exhorted commuters to ‘Take 1’. These packets had slips of paper that promised employment opportunities. The mini flyers were rather ingeniously tucked away inside.

‘Earn Extra High Income’ they are headlined and speak of a job opportunity.

The last line read: ‘If you do not need it, please give it to someone who is in need’. Who needs the Harvard Business School when you have the spirit of Mumbai?

This is a picture of a rock formation near a lake in Burma .

The photo can only be taken on a specific day once a year when the sun rays touch the

rocks at a certain angle.

* Tilt your head to the left and then look at it again ....

Did you notice anything different? Yes or no?

World's largest CARGO ship

World's Largest Cargo Ship. Get a load of this ship! 15,000 containers and a 207' beam !!!!!! And look at the crew size for a ship longer than a US aircraft carrier which has a complement of 5,000 men and officers. Think it's big enough? Notice that 207' beam means it was NOT designed for the Panama or Suez canal. It is strictly transpacific. Check out the "cruise speed". 31 knots means the goods arrive 4 days before the typical container ship (18-20 knots) on a China-to-California run. So this be-hemoth is hugely competitive carrying perishable goods.
This ship was built in three, perhaps as many as five sections. The sections floated together and then welded. The ship is named Emma Maersk. The command bridge is higher than a 10 store building and has 11 crane rigs that can operate simultaneously.

Additional info:
Country of origin - Denmark
Length - 1,302 ft
Width - 207 ft
Net cargo - 123,200 tons
Engine - 14 in-line cylinders diesel engine (110,000 BHP)
Cruise Speed - 31 knots,
Cargo capacity - 15,000 TEU (1 TEU = 20 ft3 container)
Crew - 13 people
First Trip - Sept. 08, 2006
Construction cost - US $145,000,000+Silicone painting applied to the ship bottom reduces water resistance and saves 317,000 gallons of diesel.

Marvelous piece of Engineering ?

The bridge (or should it be called tunnel) goes under water to allow movement of ships . In order for ships to pass, this bridge is half under the water. You drive down in the water and then come out on the other side. Truly a marvelous piece of engineering!? This bridge is between Sweden and Denmark Picture taken from the side of Sweden.

Don't we all want to do this some days?
