A Swan in the lake

A swan in the lake Lucerne, switzerland which was shot by me when I visited the Lake. This picture of mine was a casual entry to a photo contest of twenty20 website but surprisingly secured a place in that.

 The Lake is located in central Switzerland and the fourth largest in the country. Steamers and other passenger boats ply on the lake. It is a popular tourist destination, both for native Swiss and foreigners. There many swans are seen in the lake and in dark blue background the swans are favourite subject for the photographers.

Main attraction on the lake is the Chapel Bridge, a covered wooden footbridge spanning the river Reuss diagonally in the city of Lucerne. This topic will be covered in a separate post. Till then stay tuned.

The Old City is the medieval city center of Bern, SwitzerlandIts. Its compact layout has remained essentially unchanged since its construction during the 12th to the 15th. century. Despite a major fire in 1405, after which much of the city was rebuilt in Sandstone ,  and substantial construction efforts in the 18th. century, Bern’s old city has retained its medieval character. Old City of Bern, Switzerland is a UNESCO Cultural World Heritage Site since 1983 due to the compact and generally intact medieval core and is an excellent example of incorporating the modern world into a medieval city. Numerous buildings in the Old City have been designated as Swiss Cultural Properties of National Significance, as well as the entire Old City. 1-DSC041031-DSC041091-DSC04111

Nature’s gift : Coconut

Coconut water..

  • Coconut Water is More Nutritious than whole milk – Less fat and NO cholesterol!
  • Coconut Water is More Healthy than Orange Juice – Much lower calories
  • Coconut Water is Better than processed baby milk- It contains lauric acid, which is present in human mother’s milk
  • Coconut water is naturally sterile — Water permeates though the filtering husk!
  • Coconut water is a universal donor– Its identical to human blood plasma
  • Coconut Water is a Natural Isotonic Beverage – The same level we have in our blood.
  • Coconut water has saved lives in 3rd world countries thru Coconut IV.
  • Coconut water is the very stuff of Nature, biologically Pure, full of Natural Sugars, Salts, and Vitamins to ward off fatigue… and is the next wave of energy drinks BUT natural!’, according to Mortin Satin, Chief of the United Nation’s Food Agriculture Organization.
  • Coconut water contains more potassium (at about 294 mg) than most sports drinks (117 mg) and most energy drinks..
  • Coconut water has less sodium (25mg) where sports drinks have around 41mg and energy drinks have about 200mg!
  • Coconut water has 5mg of Natural Sugars where sports and energy drinks range from 10-25mg of Altered Sugars.
  • Coconut water is very high in Chloride at 118mg; compared to sports drinks at about 39mg.
From the above facts, it is needless to say that from health point of view, the coconut water is better than any drink available in the market. It is also cheaper when compared to other drinks. Then what prevents us to change to the natural one and healthier one ?
