The small African kingdom of Lesotho has one of the highest rates of maternal mortality in the world. And the number of women dying during pregnancy or childbirth has increased over the past decade. But as Al Jazeera's Erica Wood reports, a new clinic is trying to change that.
The Kingdom of Lesotho has an abundance of water in its mountainous areas - the Lesotho Highlands. In Lesotho's Lowlands however, where the majority of its population live and work, there is an urgent need to increase quantity, quality and reliability of water supply. To harness water for Lesotho's future, the Government is undertaking the Metolong Dam and Water Supply Program that will more than double the supply of water to the capital Maseru and four surrounding towns.

The bar located the highest in Africa. There is nothing else in this village but this wonderful accommodating facilities for which white tourists on 4 wheel drive from South Africa would visit just to breath good air and leave. Cottages with a fire place, wi-fi and electricity are provided and gorgeous foods served at this wonderful place, Sani Mountain Lodge. Anyhow, our bed is in the middle of the village, a 15 minutes walk away. Spending a night and thinking it was a huge mistake to sleep in a summer tent at 3000m elevation, I sweared to myself to stay at the cottage one day. FYI, hot shower and kitchen is available even for tent users. No worries if you have sleeping bags. If you don't, I recommend the dormitory. translated by Mizue Kawamura サニパスはレソトの東の端。南アフリカとの国境の、標高3000m近い絶壁の上にある、...
First rides testing the Lesotho dirt in preparation for the race runs and there's no better way to do it than MASS START. We had the opportunity to smash out some practice laps to get accustomed to the the altitude & soil in Lesotho. These trails start around 3000m above sea so air is quite thin at this altitude which i turn makes a person unusually tired. This extra fatigue caused chaos out on the trails. Lot's of fails & bails happened, some caught on camera, some not. Here is a taste of what's to come in the next series. ---------------------------------------------- Trip Hosted by Detour Trails: www.detourtrails.co.za ---------------------------------------------- Help the Ride Rate Review channel grow & reach 5000 subscribers LIKE, SHARE & SUBSCRIBE. ------------------------...
We are so in love with Lesotho. While walking in the capital city Maseru or here in Mokhotlong, we feel the calm air that is different from neighbor South African nations where we have to be careful. Not just that it is a countryside but the landscape with clouds right above us and the cool and kind people made us want to stay longer although I know it is hard to imagine the toughness of this country in the winter time. We already feel cold in the early summer. translated by Mizue Kawamura もう僕たちはレソトが大好きになっている。首都マセルでも、このモコトロンを歩いていても、やっぱり思う。近隣の南部アフリカ諸国に比べ、ビクビクと恐れながら歩かなくてすむ、なんだか穏やかな空気が流れているからなのかもしれない。田舎だからと言えばそうだけれど、雲がすぐ近くにある風景と、その言葉を連呼してしまうほどカッコいい男性や優しい人々。僕らが訪れているのは初夏なので、それでも寒いこの国の冬を想像するとこの印象だけがこの国のすべてではないのだともちろん分かるのだけれど、でももっともっと滞在していたくなった。
Landing on Saba island in the Caribbean. Pilots must have special training to land here. The landing strip is 400 meters (1300 feet) in total length. There aren't any overrun areas on either end of the paved runway where shear cliffs immediately drop off over 200 feet into the sea. Officially, the runway is permanently closed to all air traffic as is designated by the "X" on each end. However, aircraft are permitted to operate on Saba by obtaining waivers from the Netherlands Antilles' Civil Aviation Authority

Die Fahrt quer durch das Königreich Lesotho war eines der schönsten Erlebnisse auf unserem ersten Teil unserer Afrikareise. Steile, enge Bergstrassen wechseln mit modernen Teerstrassen im Bergstaat. Die Leute scheinen viel glücklicher, aber auch viel ärmer zu sein als in Südafrika. Die Regierung scheint aber eine Entwicklung Richtung Neuzeit eingeleitet zu haben, die nachhaltig zu funktionieren scheint. Neben der gewaltigen Berglandschaft sind uns die weissen Plastikstiefel aufgefallen, die offensichtlich jeder trägt und die auf unsere Nachfrage hin qualitativ besser seien als die schwarzen Stiefel.
