Hot Water Beach is on the east coast of the Coromandel Peninsula, New Zealand approximately 175 kilometers from Auckland. Here underground hot springs filter up through the sand. The beach is a popular destination both for tourists visiting New Zealand, estimated at 130,000 visitors. When pits are dug into the sand on the beach, hot water comes up to the surface forming hot water pools, with water temperatures as hot as 64°C (147°F). These natural springs can be found on the beach opposite the off-shore rocks. Visitors can be seen digging large holes and relaxing and soaking in the thermal water. Visitors either bring a spade and other tools with them for digging or they can be hired from the nearby surf shop.

Konso girl of Ethiopia: The author of this photo says, "Konso are rather rich tribe, cos they have a lot of fields and a lot of agriculture stuff. The villages are big, organised like wood fortresses, and are ruled by traditional chiefs. before the women were all half nude with a typical white skirt, but as missionaries are very active in the area, they tend to wear Arsenal t-shirt to hide their breast..."
The Konso are an ethnic group of people in south-central Ethiopia. They numbered 250,430 of whom only 10,470 people (4.18 per cent) are urban dwellers (the 2007 Ethiopian national census). Konso society is mostly agricultural and involves the irrigation and terracing of mountain slopes. Their food crops include sorghum and corn and cash crops include cotton and coffee. Cattle, sheep and goats are reared for meat and milk. The Konso people erect wagas, which are carvings created in memory of a dead man who has killed an enemy. The statues are often arranged in groups with statues representing the man, his wives and his adversaries present.
