Papua New Guinea, is the second largest island in the world after Greenland, is the realm of complexity, whose extreme environmental variety is reflected in the fragmentation of peoples, languages, mores and customs as in no other country in the world. It is an ethnic kaleidoscope, a linguistic and cultural mosaic: just over seven million inhabitants between Papua New Guinea and Irian Jaya speak almost a thousand different languages, about a fifth of all those spoken on the planet. Here among prehistoric corners hidden by time and nature, something still survives from the original human being, the one who has to work daily to solve problems related to food and survival.

It is a thick jungle where there are no roads to go; it swarms with insects, dangerous animals and almost everyone should stay away from it just for these reasons. If you are looking for adventure, you have to look elsewhere! It is also frequented by paramilitary armies, drug traffickers, illegal migrants, indigenous tribes and everyone could be adverse!
Forse non tutti sanno che sulla terra esistono ancora poche etnie che non hanno mai avuto contatti con la società civilizzata. Esempi di queste tribù si trovano in quattro continenti: Asia, Oceania, America settentrionale e America meridionale. Tali gruppi umani, pur essendo la loro conoscenza di indubbio interesse antropologico, non vengono contattati dagli studiosi per scelta di questi ultimi: potrebbero infatti contagiare gli indigeni con virus per i quali il loro sistema immunitario non è preparato e provocarne l’estinzione.
Con i suoi undici milioni di chilometri quadrati la Siberia è uno dei territori più vasti e remoti del pianeta. Per generazioni i russi lo hanno utilizzato come luogo di raccolta per tutti i generi di esuli religiosi e prigionieri. La prima cosa che bisogna pensare a proposito della Siberia, è l’idea di uno spazio vasto e desolato in cui vive pochissima gente. I russi lo hanno sempre visto come uno spazio vuoto che si trovava lì per essere colmato, ma purtroppo non ci riuscirono mai in quanto era troppo vasto! Non c’erano strade adatte per viaggiare per il paese; e questo ha contribuito al senso di isolamento che la comunità russa provava in questo ambiente freddo e ostile.
Nel nord-ovest del Messico, tra le montagne della Sierra Madre e l’oceano Pacifico, c’è lo stato di Sinaloa che è conosciuto come la “culla del narcotraffico”. La sua capitale dello stato, Culiacán, è la capitale della droga di tutto il paese. Una media di un paio di decessi per droga sono segnalati ogni giorno, e la violenza della droga tra polizia e bande di narcotrafficanti rivali è comune in città.
With its eleven million square kilometers Siberia it is one of the largest territories and remote in the world. For generations, the Russians have used it as a gathering place for all kinds of religious exiles and prisoners. The first thing you have to think about the idea of Siberia is a vast and desolate place where there were very few people. The Russians have always seen it as an empty space that you found them to be filled, but unfortunately we never succeeded because it was too big! There were no roads suitable for traveling to the country; and this has contributed to the sense of isolation that the Russian community in this environment felt very cold and hostile. Siberian religious scene is particularly rooted, as there was minimal overlap of other cultures. Siberian shamanism is therefore considered by the classical scholars, the less contaminated by other cultures.
I’ve always been fascinated by ethology; but are especially attracted by the extreme behavior that living things develop in order to survive. According to studies by the researchers, the strange behavior of animals can be determined both by their genetic acquired on the basis that the habitat in which they live. However, behaviors that are instinctive or acquired, it is well known that some animals have very strange and unusual behavior. Here I report three examples of behaviors of insects that I was very impressed; one of which. I have been a participant in New Zealand.
Il 7 agosto del 1947, sballottata dalle onde che s’infrangevano sugli scogli, una zattera di legno di balsa e di banbù urtò la barriera corallina che proteggeva la quieta laguna di Raroria, una sperduta isoletta dell’arcipelago delle Marchesi, nel bel mezzo dell’oceano Pacifico.

In the north-west of Mexico, between the Sierra Madre mountains and the Pacific Ocean, there is the state of Sinaloa is known as the “cradle of drug trafficking.” Its state capital, Culiacan, the capital of the drug across the country. An average of 2-3 drug-related deaths are reported each day, and the drug violence between police and rival drug gangs is common in the city. However, just around the corner from the governor’s office, on the opposite side of the railroad tracks, a sanctuary exists as an ‘amalgam of narco-culture and his Catholicism. There he pays tribute to Jesús Malverde, also called Narcos Saint.
A steady stream of people can usually be found there, placing candles near busts, leaving framed photographs of loved ones who want healing or protection. Continua a leggere “Jesus Malverde the Narcos Saint”
