Delhi exists in a kind of quantum state: In Delhi, all things are true at once. When the Big Apple no longer felt big enough, Dave and Jenny moved to a city of 16 million people and, seemingly, twice that many horns honking at once. Delirious Delhi depicts India´s capital as the two experienced it, from office life in the rising tech hubs to the traffic jam philosophy that keeps people sane in the gridlock leading to them. With only their sense of humour as their guide, Dave and Jenny set out to explore a city in which ancient stone monuments compete with glass-clad shopping malls to define the landscape. What follows is a top-to-bottom snapshot of a city in the thick of loud and accelerating change. Anyone new to Delhi will have their understanding of it magnified by this book. And anyone who already knows Delhi will appreciate this candid tribute to a city that´s everything to everyone at the same time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sanjiv Jhaveri.

This new, thoroughly updated sixth edition of Bradt´s Albania remains the only standalone guide to this dynamic and rapidly modernising eastern European country, from the capital, Tirana, a lively European city, with shopping malls, cycle paths, museums, galleries and historic buildings, to remote outposts where traditional ways of life prevail. Updated by expert author Gillian Gloyer, it includes all developments since the last edition, reflecting changes such as continued investment in the road network and construction of fast highways connecting main cities, improved hotel provision and new museums dedicated to Albania´s communist history. Despite such modernisation, Albania is one of very few European countries where it is still possible to immerse yourself in traditional lifestyles and culture, and Bradt´s Albania provides details of where to experience this for yourself. In highland villages, people tend their livestock and gather their crops with little or no mechanisation; they milk their cows and goats by hand, they make their own cheese and bread, they distil home-made spirits from local fruits and berries. In addition, many villagers have opened up their traditional homes as guest-houses, offering a wonderful opportunity to experience their culture first-hand. Bradt´s Albania also includes details of watching the country´s rare wildlife, such as wildcats, lynx, wolves and bears, and of visiting its three World Heritage Sites: the archaeological site and national park of Butrint and the Ottoman cities of Berati and Gjirokastra. Iso-polyphony, the traditional music of the south-west, is also listed as part of World Heritage by UNESCO. With rigorously researched historical and archaeological background information, detailed notes on popular and less well-known hiking routes and other outdoor activities, specialist contributors on wildlife, military history and other topics, and an unparalleled wealth of practical advice for the independent traveller, Bradt´s Albania is the ideal companion for discovering this intriguing country.
This book documents the large-scale redevelopment of the labyrinthine Shibuya train station in the heart of Tokyo´s world-famous shopping district. Although many such ambitious construction projects are currently underway throughout Japan´s ever-renewing capital in preparation for the Olympic Games in 2020, the work at Shibuya Station is in a particularly dense and active area-the world´s busiest pedestrian crossing (where up to 2,500 people simultaneously traverse the street in five directions) is only a stroll away, while the station´s nine train lines have remained operational throughout renovations. Mixing black-and-white and color images taken at various times of day and night, Reconstruction is both a collection of stilled moments from this bustling process of transformation and an unconventional portrait of Shibuya.
Rome is the capital and largest city of Italy and of the Lazio region. It´s the famed city of the Roman Empire, the Seven Hills, La Dolce Vita (sweet life), the Vatican City, and Three Coins in the Fountain. Rome, as a millennium-long center of power, culture and religion, having been the center of one of the globe´s greatest civilizations ever, has exerted a huge influence over the world in its 2,500 years of existence. The Historic Center of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With wonderful palaces, millennium-old churches and basilicas, grand romantic ruins, opulent monuments, ornate statues, and graceful fountains, Rome has an immensely rich historical heritage and cosmopolitan atmosphere, making it one of Europe´s and the world´s most visited, famous, influential, and beautiful capitals. Today, Rome has a growing nightlife scene and is also seen as a shopping heaven, being regarded as one of the fashion capitals of the world (some of Italy´s oldest jewelry and clothing establishments were founded in the city). With so many sights and things to do, Rome can truly be classified a "global city". Rome has a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. In the winter months, daytime temperatures are usually pleasant and range from 10-15 degrees Celsius, while nighttime temperatures tend to stay slightly above freezing. That being said, the occasional cold snap can cause temperatures to fall below freezing, and it is not unheard of for light flurries of snow to fall on occasion, though accumulation is rare, and major snowstorms are known to occur only once every 20-25 years. 1.

Guam is a special place for a number of reasons. At 212 square miles, it´s the largest island in Micronesia, and its status as a territory of the U.S. makes it our most westerly possession. It is 6,000 miles west of San Francisco, and is truly where America´s day begins. The geology of this apostrophe-shaped island, which is 30 miles long and four to 12 miles wide, is volcanic. Much of the northern part has cliffs along the coast that drop sharply to the sea, as well as a few mountains that range up to 600 feet. The southern part of the island is basically volcanic (rather than limestone) and has a mountainous ridge separating island valleys from the coastline. Mt. Lamlam, 1,400 feet above sea level, is the highest point on the island and, with its base 37,000 feet below the sea, it can in fact be considered the world´s highest mountain. Guam is a lush green island that supports a variety of plants, but only enough agriculture to provide a few local markets with pineapples, bananas, papayas, mangos, beans, squash, and cucumbers. Agana, located about midway on the west coast, is the capital and, with its shopping centers, office buildings, parks, and sometimes heavy commuter traffic, could be ´´Any Town, U.S.A.´´ Tumon Bay, 10 minutes by car from Agana, is Guam´s answer to Waikiki, and on its arc of palm-fringed beach you will find one deluxe hotel after another. This guide tells you everything you need to know about this amazing island - where to stay and where to eat, what to see, what to do, how to get there and get around. 1. Language: English.
