On the south west coast of Madagascar lies Belo sur Mer, a unique village in which boat builders still construct boats the way the European pirates did hundred years ago. It is the only remaining monument to the Veso boat building craft long forgotten elsewhere in the world. This shipyard was a shelter for pirates and is full of legends and mythic stories. Centuries ago, in the golden age of piracy in the Mozambique Channel, fleets of more than 300 Veso boats are said to have terrorised the islands near Madagascar. The Napoleonic wars brought European piracy to an end and many pirates retired to secluded spots along the Malagasy coastline where they lived out their lives in relative peace. I was walking on the shore at Belo sur Mer when a Christic moment appears in front of me.

<a href="//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rafael_Nadal">Rafael "Rafa" Nadal Parera</a> (born 3 June 1986) is a Spanish professional tennis player currently ranked No. 1. He is regarded as one of the greatest players of all time ; his success on clay has earned him the nickname "The King of Clay", and has prompted many experts to regard him as the greatest clay court player of all time.
<a href="//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rafael_Nadal">Nadal's</a> serve was initially considered a weak point in his game, although his improvements in both first serve points won and break points saved since 2005 have allowed him to consistently compete for and win major titles on faster surfaces. Nadal relies on the consistency of his serve to gain a strategic advantage in points, rather than going for service winners.However, before the 2010 season, he altered his service motion, arriving in the trophy pose earlier and pulling the racket lower during the trophy pose. Before the 2010 U.S. Open, Nadal modified his service grip to a more continental one. These two changes in his serve have increased its average speed by around 10 mph, maxing out at 135 mph (217 km), allowing him to win more free points on his serve.
Female Black Lemurs (also known as Eulemur macaco). The black lemur is one of 28 species of lemurs, which are relatives to monkeys and apes and is so called True lemur. The black lemur got its name from a male coloration which is black, while female is brown. The difference in the colors between male and female black lemurs is unique for lemurs. The image was taken at Madagascar, in Nosy Komba island. Komba means Lemur in Malagasy.
