In The Bahamas, we generally eat land crabs and the southern end of Eleuthera, is where the black crabs live.  Although they are called black crabs, these crabs are of various colours – from black, deep red and orange, to yellow.  Black crabs are known for the sweetness of their meat and usually come out during the daytime.

Frasassi Caves and the other Caves in Italy

Frasassi Caves and the other Caves in Italy | my interest | Scoop.it

This group of caves [Frasassi Caves] is one of the most famous in the country. Located in the central region of Marche, the caves were reportedly first discovered in 1948, though most sources state that 1971 is when they began to be explored. They feature a series of linked chambers, one of which is a bizarre shape that feels like an endless tunnel when in fact it is one very long chamber. Today the caves are open to the public for daily visits, and they are estimated to be around 190 million years old.

This is the List of the best caves in Italy

Clever Wine Bottles Inspired by Mondrian and The Simpsons

Clever Wine Bottles Inspired by Mondrian and The Simpsons | my interest | Scoop.it
Wine, or maybe not? is a playful, minimalist wine bottle design project that will bring a smile to your face. Inspired by the style of famous Dutch painter Pieter Mondrian, the collaborative project was developed by Russian artist Constantin Bolimond and Dmitry Patsukevich in 1987, the same year The Simpsons first aired on The Tracey Ullman Show. And, the contents of the bottle have remained a mystery ever since.
Bold blocks of color perfectly align to suggest the outfits of Marge and Homer Simpson through color and form. But the rest of the project is a bit of a mystery. Exactly what is inside the bottles remains unclear. The artists explain: "May be it is wine, may be not. We are inviting you to find out yourselves." The description on the back of the bottle goes on to state, "While the ingredients remain the same, their proportions differ from time to time. That is why you will never get bored from this drink! We can assure you that you will not be left disappointed."
