Sea Glass Beach, Fort Bragg, CA. Up until 1967, this area was used as a sort of dump for locals. Fires were set to reduce the refuse of trash dumped there, and with the effects of surf and time, the area transformed and became covered in pieces of smooth sea glass, of all colors and sizes. It’s like walking over gemstones. The beach is now protected, and therefore it is prohibited to remove any pieces of glass form there.
Bora Bora is an island in the Leeward group of the Society Islands of French Polynesia, an overseas collectivity of France in the Pacific Ocean.

Crystal Island, the World’s Biggest Building
Foster + Partners have released designs for the biggest building ever built:
Crystal Island in Moscow will be 450m high, cover an area of almost half a million square meters and contain a total floor area of 2.5 million square meters.
The Crystal Island has already earned the reputation of the most ambitious
building project in the world. The construction is evaluated at four billion dollars.
The city within the building will house 900 luxury apartments, 3,000 hotel rooms,
a theater, a fitness complex, a cinema, a museum and an international school for 500
students, not to mention countless stores.
The exterior facade will be solar responsive and will include solar panels which, along with wind turbines, will generate electricity for the huge tower.
Natural ventilation will be provided thanks to numerous strategically placed large atriums. The internal environment will also have dynamic enclosure panels slotted into the structural framing that will allow daylight to penetrate deep into the heart of the structure; the panels will also be controlled to modify temperature inside the building – closed in winter for extra warmth and opened in summer to allow natural ventilation.

A bit about these Bamboo Groves:-
The walking paths that cut through the bamboo groves make for a nice walk or bicycle ride. The groves are particularly attractive when there is a light wind and the tall bamboo stalks sway gently back and forth in a musical fashion. The bamboo has been used to manufacture various products, such as baskets, cups, boxes and mats at local workshops for centuries.
