Splendid beaches, delicious cuisine, vibrant nightlife and lively fiestas all make Spain one of Europe’s best getaways. Because Spain encompasses several autonomous regions and islands, the country boasts one of the most widely diverse cultures and landscapes on the continent. Here's an overview of the top places to visit in Spain.
Explore Ethiopia, the home of coffee, our planet's oldest known ancestor, the Queen of Sheba and one of the world's hottest jazz scenes, with Australian travel writer Nina Karnikowski of travelswithnina.com. Meet the remote tribes of the Omo Valley, which have hardly been touched by the modern world, visit the 1000-year-old rock-cut churches of Lalibela for the Orthodox Christmas celebrations, hike in the otherworldly Simien Mountains with hundreds of bleeding heart baboons, and see the majestic Blue Nile Falls, the source of the Nile River.

A piece of cake can look a bit lonely on a plate all by itself. Dressing up the plate with a little garnish or a little sauce can go a long way in making a plain chocolate cake look like something very special – perfect for a romantic dinner, a dinner party or just when you want to do something nice for yourself. Adding a few fresh berries or a small dollop of whipped cream is the easiest way to add to the presentation. A sprig of mint looks nice on chocolate desserts and ice creams. But these are simple garnishes, and to really make an impact, you’ll want to add a swirl of sauce or a splash of coulis to the plate. Chocolate sauce and a fruit coulis (smooth puree) add a little extra flavor to each bite of your dessert, and you can be a lot more playful with them than you can be with a sprig of mint. You’ll want a small pastry bottle – a plastic bottle with a small tip – or a small pastry bag to do your decorating with. Transfer a thin sauce to the bottle – storebought caramel sauce, chocolate sauce and vanilla sauce will work well, as will any thin fruit puree or creme anglaise – and squeeze a design of spirals or swirls onto the plate before adding your dessert. For an even more impressive effect, pipe a flat area of one color of sauce. Use another sauce to pipe straight lines through the blank palate created by sauce number one, then drag a toothpick through both sauces at a right angle to the lines you just drew. The result is pictured above and is a beautiful canvas on which to plate the perfect dessert =============================================== Amazing decorate dessert art =============================================== All copyright problems please contact email: firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for watching!
