Visit to „Mars” – Cheltenham Badlands, Ontario – Canada

Caledon Badlands Ontario CanadaMillions of years ago, what we know today as The Great Lakes, a shallow sea known as the Michigan Basin, centered in Michigan stretched outward to surrounding areas of today’s Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin and Ontario Canada. Mountain streams carrying red iron oxide deposited sediments into the sea forming a large delta which over the years became the Queenston Shale.

This magnificent landscape is believed to form with overgrazing the soft layer of the shale by farming that exposed this red iron rich material. The farming has stopped in 1931, however the erosion continues increasing this remarkable site in size.

The hills and gullies are composed of clay containing mostly red iron oxide and green iron oxide visible as greenish-gray bands throughout the land.

Lublin – a City Where History and Future Intertwine

Map of Old Town LublinLublin, the largest city in southeastern Poland, is well endowed with historic buildings. It is also an important center of academic life and a city marked with Jewish culture.

A target for attacks (Tatars, Swedes, Germans), was destroyed and rebuilt, but also thrived as a great trade center and a meeting place for Polish and Lithuanian nobles.
