Irrawady Dolphin, LAOS

Although sometimes called the Irrawaddy river dolphin, it is not a true river dolphin, but an oceanic dolphin that lives in brackish water near coasts, river mouths and in estuaries. It has established subpopulations in freshwater rivers, including the Mekong, where less than a hundred individuals live between Laos and Cambodia. Photo from November 2013.

Kasbashs from MOROCCO

A kasbah is a fortress (citadel) but the word may also be used to describe the old part of a city. A kasbah has high walls, usually without windows and sometimes, they were built on hilltops so that they could be more easily defended. Having a kasbah built was a sign of wealth of some families in the city, like for instance Telouet, the Kasbah the Glaouis dynasty. Almost all cities had their kasbah, this building being something necessary for the city to survive. Most of them don't last much due to the material used to built them, mostly consisting in Mud, stones and pissé (Mud pressed and dried between wooden boards). Photos from October 2012
