COLONEL JOHN
 BLASHFORD-SNELL


President of the Just a Drop organization

 

In 1968 Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia invited the British Army to send a team to explore and make the first descent of the infamous Blue Nile. Captain John Blashford-Snell of the Royal Engineers was commissioned to select, train and lead the 60 person party. The success of this immense expedition led to even tougher assignments, such as the first vehicle crossing of the complete Darien Gap (Central America) in 1971/2 and in 1974/5, navigating almost all the 2,700 miles of the great Zaire (now Congo) River.
Having organized and led over 100 expeditions, Blashford-Snell has built up a reputation as a practical field engineer and become one of the world's most renowned and highly respect explorers. His innovative method of negotiating white water in inflatable boats has been adopted as a worldwide sport. Today he supports numerous charities and divides his life between the concrete and green jungles.

Just a Drop charitable organization

Just a Drop raises money to build wells, install hand pumps and carry out health and sanitation programmes to give children and their families clean, accessible water.
This means children are well enough to trek long distances to collect water or to go to school, mothers don't have to stay at home to look after them and fathers are healthy enough to work. The cycle of sickness and poverty is broken and the future is immediately brighter.
Just a Drop also supports water, sanitation and health projects around the world and helps in disaster relief efforts when the most basic human need is clean water. For example:
In Cambodia, JP built 50 new wells in nine villages, restored five other wells and launched a community health programme.
In North East India, we helped the isolated village of Riangmaw by providing a new water system to pump water 60m up a slope.
In Afghanistan, JP worked in partnership with the Scientific Exploration Society to provide the Khanabad Emergency Obstetric Clinic with fresh clean water. For 2008, Just a Drop is looking into projects in Bolivia, Uganda, the Philippines, Niger and Ecuador to name a few.

 

It's a great luxury in life to be able
to drink clean water from a tap.

in marketing.

The number one family destination and worldwide destination, Orlando, is home to seven of the top ten theme parks in the world, some of the best beaches in the country and plenty of Four-Star and Four-Diamond Resorts. Approximately 50 million visitors, both domestic and international, travel to Orlando each year. Sandy and Gary talk about how the destination offers a little bit for everybody and how they have created a global brand to attract visitors from all over the world. Gary's suggestion: If you're ever looking for info and want the right info on an area, use a CVB website. According to the Orlando CVB, the city continues to grow, offering nearly 100 attractions, 112,000 hotel rooms and more than 5,300 restaurants, as well as the second largest convention center in the nation. Tourism has become the leading industry for Central Florida with approximately 50 million visitors annually and an economic impact of $29.6 billion.

KINA PAEGERT

Information Officer for the
Del Mar Fairgrounds
 

Ever wonder where and when the county fair started? Sandy and Kina discuss the origins of this nationwide concept and what the fifth largest county fair in the country, the San Diego County Fair, has in store for visitors. The fair is located at the Del Mar fairgrounds in Del Mar, California - just down the road from Sandy's studios. It runs until July 6.
The San Diego County Fair began in 1880 when a group of San Diegans organized an agricultural fair to bring county farmers together to share ideas, see who had the best citrus fruit, who baked the best pie and who had the fastest horse. After that first fair, the county fair was held annually with a few exceptions in various county locations until 1936, when it moved to its present Del Mar home. Each year the fair has a different theme. Each year, hundreds of consumer and trade promoters rent the Del Mar Fairgrounds facilities for home and garden shows, dog shows, antique fairs, sports shows, music festivals and much more.

Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center On the Potomac:
Gaylord National Resort Hotel and Convention Center, the cornerstone of the exciting new National Harbor project in Prince George's County, Maryland, shines in glass and steel from the banks of the historic Potomac River.
Located eight miles due south of Washington, D.C., the resort hotel is just 15 minutes away from our nation's capital--an ideal location for meetings and conventions. And with 470,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, Gaylord National is the largest combined hotel and convention center on the East Coast.
Our spectacular 18-story glass atrium welcomes you to the resort, offering wonderful views of the Potomac River and Old Town Alexandria, while a river meanders through the multi-level indoor gardens. Within this lush landscape you'll discover fine dining and casual restaurants, unique shopping experiences, and a 20,000-square-foot spa and fitness center. And for late-night excitement, an express elevator speeds you to the two-story rooftop Pose Ultra Lounge.
This luxurious new addition to the Gaylord Hotels family in Washington D.C. boasts 2,000 stylish guest rooms, including 110 lavish suites and 300 rooms in our exclusive National Bay area. Atrium and river views are available. Every room features high-speed wireless Internet access and two phones, including one cordless. Our spacious bathrooms all offer double vanities.

JULLY BEDE LYMO

Park Warden for the Lake
Manyara National Park
 

Stretching for 50km along the base of the rusty-gold 600-metre high Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara is a scenic gem, with a setting extolled by Ernest Hemingway as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”.
The compact game-viewing circuit through Manyara offers a virtual microcosm of the Tanzanian safari experience.
From the entrance gate, the road winds through an expanse of lush jungle-like groundwater forest where hundred-strong baboon troops lounge nonchalantly along the roadside, blue monkeys scamper nimbly between the ancient mahogany trees, dainty bushbuck tread warily through the shadows, and outsized forest hornbills honk cacophonously in the high canopy. Learn about some of the finer attractions of Lake Manyara National Park from Park Warden Jully, including the more than 390 species of birds that live there, the Rift Valley Escarpment, tree-climbing lions and mineral hot springs used for medical cures. There's plenty to do at Lake Manyara National Park and Sandy and Jully talk about everything from night safaris to canoeing to lunches and dinners in the bush and some of the beautiful lodges of the region.
