Safari Tunayo! – Wacha ni Kwambie Uzima Travels December 2015(Global destinations)

This December, the blog took a break from its monthly focus areas to visit different parts of the globe by e-travel, if you may call it.
Behind our laptops, phones and other gadgets we were able to visit specific cities in the world and in this way enriched our world knowledge and appreciated the diversity called humanity.
Out first stop was at New York City, in New York State in the United States of America where we appreciated the fast paced life of the typical New Yorker. The Statue of Liberty is a famous and popular landmark that represents the valued democracy and freedom of the United States of America, the greatest nation in the planet. Our tour ended with a street tour of the famous Manhattan Times Square.
We then swiftly moved to Switzerland famous for its  scenic Swiss Alps. As we discovered, about two thirds of the area of Switzerland is covered with forests, lakes and mountains. Switzerland has no mineral resources.
Farming is also an important part of the economy. But the production of the Swiss farmers does not fulfill the needs of all people, so Switzerland must rely on imported goods from other countries.
it must import, process and resell them as products. “Services” are the most important part of the economy. This includes banking, assurances and tourism. We made an e-tour of the Swiss Alps.
 We made a  trip to the continent of Asia, landing in Bangkok, the capital city of  Thailand fondly referred to as ‘The Big Mango’. Appreciated an e-tour of the rich street markets of Bangkok city.
The Kingdom of Thailand, also known as ‘The Land of Smiles’. Thailand experienced rapid economic growth between 1985 and 1996. Thailand is an emerging economy and is considered a newly industrialized country. The economy of Thailand is heavily export-dependent, with exports accounting for more than two-thirds of gross domestic product (GDP). Thailand exports over US$105 billion worth of goods and services annually.Major exports include rice, textiles and footwear, fishery products, rubber, jewellery, cars, computers, and electrical appliances.
Substantial industries include electric appliances, components, computer components, and vehicles. Its main religion is Buddhism which is practised by 95% of the population. It’s capital city is Bangkok. While at Bangkok you might probably want to consider visiting the Grand Palace; a key tourist attraction there.
Australia is our final global destination of our holiday e-travel this year. It is one of the wealthiest countries in the world and has the 12th largest economy in the world.
Nicknamed, ‘The Land Down Under’ It is the sixth largest country in the world by land mass and has the distinction of being the world’s smallest continent or largest island as you choose to describe it.
It is a federal state with eight territories each with its own capital city. The nation’s capital is Canberra though Sydney is the largest of all the territory capitals.
The country is made up of several skilled immigrants and the indigenous aborigines and Toures Strait islanders. Australians share the same date format like Kenyans dd/mm/yyyy and drive on the left as we do. They claim Queen Elizabeth II as their Queen though independent of the Commonwealth.
Australia’s current Prime Minister is one Malcolm Turnbull and is a democratic country.
Its rich economy is powered by its people in key sectors like mining, telecommunications, banking and manufacturing.
Every new year’s eve, several people from all corners of the world congregate at Sydney specifically, the Sydney Harbour which is one of the first places in the planet to witness the new year and that is where we are docked at this last week of the year.
As the whole of humanity winds up its year…
