Madagascar is home to such an amazing array of exotic and beautiful wildlife. This map represents only a sample of just the reptiles that are at risk, not to mention all the mammals, birds, fish, insects and plant life that are also threatened.

Smela's coat of arms depicts a girl breaking the arrow. According to the legend, during one of the Golden Horde raids, a local girl guided Russian warriors to the rear of the invaders. The enemy were defeated but the girl was killed with the enemy's arrow. Nobody knew her name, so they simply called her Smela ('a brave girl' in Russian). When the town was established there, they dicided to keep the name to commemorate the girl who saved the warriors and the local people.
I've been to Mexico three times, and have travelled to around 50 different towns and villages, plus of course all the archaeological sites and incredible natural areas that the country has to offer. These are a few of my very favourites... I always found that the more off the beaten track I went, the more incredible the places were! Some of these may be relatively well-known, but often get missed out by visitors because of their location. If you love nature, you'll be stunned by the diversity of landscapes and wildlife to be found there. Mexico's ancient history and contemporary indigenous communities are also fascinating aspects of the country to explore.
