Stuck in the Mud Near Ramadi
Anbar
By mushtaq mohammed
17 Dec 2014

December 17, 2014
Anbar, Iraq

Hundreds on Iraqi drivers are stuck in their cars on a muddy road near Ramadi in Anbar Province west of Baghdad.
The Iraqi army closed the main highway between Ramadi and the Sajariya district east of the city for security reasons, forcing drivers to use an alternate unpaved road.
Several days of heavy rain turned the road to mud, causing cars to become stuck and creating a long traffic jam. Employees have been unable get to work and refugees from areas where there is fighting have been stuck in their cars on the road for more than 24 hours.
The Iraqi army and Sunni tribal fighters launched an offensive in late November 2014 to drive ISIS militants out of the Sajariya area, which is under partial control of the group.

(02:41-03:24) Ossama, Employee (man, Arabic):

"We have been stuck for two days, we cannot cross over to go to work. The main road is blocked by the army, for protection purposes, because the security situation is unstable. This road, as you can see here, is not useful. This area has been occupied for over a month by three or four people of those who want to create an Islamic state. We do not want your Islamic state; we do not want this type of Islam. They should come see the families and the women who are tripping and falling in the mud since yesterday, and people cannot even get to their workplaces."

(03:25-03:38) Ibrahim, Refugee from Ramadi (man, Arabic):

"People are fleeing, going back and forth and the roads are blocked. Nobody is able to leave this area, in all this mud. Even if someone needs to transport a sick person or do something urgent, he cannot cross over."

An IS fighter takes on the role of traffic police. The Islamic State fighters in charge of governing Raqqa come from a variety of backgrounds. Some fighters are from Raqqa and some are Syrians from other cities. There are also fighters from different countries, including Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, and Morocco. The key is that those who interact with the public are Arabs because it is important for citizens to be able to communicate with the authorities in the streets.

Calabria is still a region of emigration, because unemployment and corruption are high. The tourism industry is poorly developed and the Calabrian mafia, the 'Ndrangheta - which is said to control the orchards of the south alongside the European cocaine trade - ubiquitous. The decay and the absence of the state are visible everywhere.

Rosarno has many long straight roads seemingly leading to nowhere. Rubbish is lying everywhere and local residents dispose of it in the outskirts.

Pictures from the bus,along the road that follows the NuJiang Valley in Yunnan, China, which is the most remote of the Three Parallel Rivers that make up the homonymous UNESCO reserve.

The NuJiang is a river that springs from the Tibet plateu down to Yunnan, and later on to Myanmar (Burma where its name changes to Salween. Here it marks the border with Thailand and then flows into the Andaman Sea.
It's one of the longest undammed rivers in the world, and it's part of the Three Parallel Rivers reserve, a UNESCO Heritage site that includes also the YangTze River and the Mekong (which chinese name is Cang Lang).
It's one of the places with the richest biodiversity in the world, and it's home of 7 out of the 26 ethnical minorities that live in Yunnan.
Human development and tourism are greatly endangering the area, that is also target of a dam project even bigger than the one realized at the Three Gorges, in the Hubei province.

Here is a series of pictures taken from some of the minibuses that everyday travel up and down the valley, from the bottom town of LiuKu up to BingZhongLuo and QiuNaTong.
The places and the faces of this forgotten valley, a road trip into a traditional China that is slowly disappearing.

What a Trip! Cycling from Germany to ...
Germany, Tschech Republik, Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore
By Maximilian Semsch
02 May 2008

In 2008 Maximilian Semsch at the age of 24 cycled from Munich to Singapore to find out more about himself and to go on a real adventure, as life must be more than just working. He did the journey all by himself, without the help of a professional camera team. As there was no one to talk to, his camera became his best friend during the trip. His journey started in May 2008 in his hometown Munich. His route took him through Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine into Russia and further on to Kazakhstan. Semsch then did hit rock bottom, as he was refused a visa and couldn't enter China. After days of consideration he did decide to skip China and flew to Thailand. His route through south-east Asia took him from Thailand to Cambodia back into Thailand and via Malaysia he finally reached Singapore, after 211 days and 13.500km on his bike. Semsch recorded everything on his trip. The nice and helpful people he bumped into, drinking vodka in Russia with complete strangers and its aftermath of a hangover the next day but he also tells about his fight against loneliness, heat and extreme headwind. He always does it in a very personal way that gives the audience the feeling of sitting on the back of his bike.
