Our winners today 🍍

🥇 My travel story: Botswana Day 11 (Chobe NP) - Part 10 - (36 photos) by @crazy-andy

On that day we were quite lucky. Biggest or the most excited sight was lion going to work. What does this mean? He has to catch himself a lunch otherwise he will be hungry. There is no fridge if you are a lion… That was the closest I was to a “combat” if I can use this expression. It was thrilling. It might sounds crazy or bad, but that is nature. For moments like that you travel to Africa. If you will be there or not, lions will hunt and antelopes will run for their lives.

🥈 En una montaña de San Diego, Cerro Kairoi, Carabobo – Venezuela / On a mountain in San Diego, Kairoi Hill, Carabobo - Venezuela by @sofathana

At first the climb is quite hard, but we were lucky because the day was cloudy so the sun didn't wear us down too much. The entire route has low vegetation and the views are beautiful, this place is like a viewpoint of the population of San Diego. We still didn't know what this hill was called hahaha, then we learned that its name is Kairoi or La Esmeralda and its maximum height reaches about 700 meters.

🥉 Castle San Carlos de Borromeo, Venezuela 🏰 // Castillo San Carlos de Borromeo, Venezuela 🏰 [ENG-ESP] by @aaalviarez

The original castle was destroyed during an enemy invasion. Although it was reconstructed and built several times, the current state in which it is located is satisfactory. It is worthy of recognition to the authorities who are in charge of its conservation. Walking in its spaces really brings a different atmosphere.
