    Vietnam Typical Tours creates Vietnam holiday packages by putting you in charge. You can build your own customised itinerary using a combination of our independent Vietnam tours (modules). We’ve travelled far and wide in Vietnam and constructed our modules from some of the most special places we've visited. You can select the modules that appeal the most to you, from hill tribe trekking, pristine national parks, to wonderful sun kissed beaches. Our Vietnam holiday packages offer something for everyone. We've chosen as many small-scale hotels and family guesthouses as possible, we feel their ambience compliments the areas in which you're staying. We'll also string the modules together by arranging your local transport in Vietnam.

    The seminar that “Engineers Without Borders-Iran” (EWB-Iran) held on "Research Week" ( Dec. 14 - 20, 2013) at Fasa University highlighted the importance of solar cookers. In this seminar we tried to inform students and professors of different types of solar-cookers and their efficiency. The team included Soheil Salimi (Founder/President of “Engineers Without Borders-Iran”, Lecturer), Razieh Amini nezhad (Food Science and Technology student), Niloufar Nekueian (Mathematics student), Fatemeh Rahimi (Mechanical engineering student) –right to left at the photo above-.
     What`s more, we began to propound the idea of using “solar-cookers “in undeveloped villages where aren`t access to gas grid. On the other hand, we interested in introducing an en…

    Letter to IOCC

    November 10, 2013 by Katjo.Mencanto

    Dear Ms. Tierney (rtierney@iocc.org),

    My name is Kat Prentice and am writing to you regarding the IOCC's response to the Haiyan disaster in the Philippines. I am not sure whether your response involves people on the ground, or the support of other NGOs such as the International Red Cross/Red Crescent, etc.

    If your response involves the actual delivery of relief supplies, I wanted to bring to your attention the wealth of information available at the Solar Cooking Wiki (http://solarcooking.wikia.com) that could be extremely useful to your staff, and which your staff can use to bring relief to people whose power, water and fuel infrastructures have been heavily damaged.

    In the short-term, solar cooking and other integrated cooking methods provi…

    This is me, thinking aloud about ways to help in the Philippines (and to build a base for future reactions to disasters). Note that SCInet already has reacted in partnership with other groups, so I'm probably reinventing the wheel here (see my thoughts about Haiti, which I need to get back to work on). But I'm thinking anyway.

    What I'm thinking about primarily is two responses:

    • Instruction: sending booklets and transmitting PDFs for local printout/distrubtion that teaches people how to build their own integrated cooking/water purification out of scrounged materials
    • Materials: CooKits, WAPIs, and instruction bundled into kits, ready to use.

    • What to send - what's the best thing to send?
    • Production - do we have enough stuff? Is it bundled in a…

    Kiam mi estis konstruanta mian Fun-Panelon , mi konsciis ke la plano postulas ke oni faras angulitajn mezurojn de 15°. Tamen, mi ne havis angulilon. Mi estas funde maldiligenta -- aŭ avare, aŭ ambaŭ -- do mi kreis metodon uzante faradon "origami". Tio ne estas perfekta metodo, ĉar ĝi alportis min sufiĉe proksiman.


    Ĉu oni ne konas la bazajn laŭkutimojn de "origami", mi inkluzas iun rapidan fonon. Se oni multe faras faradon "origami", oni povas varŝajne eblas postsalti ĉi tiun sekcion.


    Kutime, papero "origami" havas unu desinita aŭ farbita flanko kaj unu klare nigra flanko. Indikoj uzos solidan farbon por indiki la desinia/farbita flanko por helpi ke oni kontrolu kies flanko estas kiu. Oni fakte estus uzante regularan folion da papero (sama fa…

    Dum mia dua provo por uzi mian Fun-Panelon (hieraŭ la 15-an de Julio), mi uzis nian bakujan termometron por fari mezurojn.  Ĉi tiu speco da termometro havas sondilo anstataŭ esti al-hokita aŭ staranta termometro: la sondilo havas longan kunpremeblan draton kiu portas la signalon al la elektrika legilo.  Estas plurajn jarojn depost kiam mi faris iu ajn formo de vara sciencia eksperimento kaj ĉi tiu evidentis kiam mi nefaris noti la precizan tempon je komenco.  Tamen estis generale apud 1315 (la unua horoj kaj 15 minutoj posttagmeze).   Longitudo kaj latitudo proksimume: 32° 44.6'N, 117° 12.2' W (ne, se vi serĉi ĝin je Google-Mapoj, tiu ne estas mia domo).

    Tiuj el vi kiuj faras ĉi tion longatempe varŝajne subridos. Sed novaj aferoj estas, nature, novaj kaj ekscitaj al novuloj kaj ni ŝatas kunsperti. Do, bonvolu havi paciencon.

    Post farante de iom esplorado temante pri la diversaj specoj de solaj kuiriloj, mi decidis ke la Fun-Panelo, de Teong TAN, varŝajne estus la plej simpla desegno kiun mi povus fari. Mi decidis, ankaŭ, provi tritikan paston. Ĝi estas io, kion mia patrino ofte uzas por fari past-paperon*, so ĝi estas io, kun kio mi devus minime komforti, se nur per prokuro. Ĝi ankaŭ estas la plej forta gluo, kaj ĉar mi intersiĝas pri instigi la uzado de sola kuiro en Haiti, mi decidis mi mem provos ĝin.

    Mi ekiris al Home Depot por iom rimedoj: mi volis akiri malgrandajn farb-rulilojn: unu p…

    Para poder cocinar en cualquier lugar deberás tener a tu alcance los siguientes...

    Ingredientes:

    1 Parasol del coche

    2 Ensaladeras de cristal

    1 cazuela oscura

    1 tapa

    3 pinzas de la ropa

    1 palo (si hace viento)


    Para ponerla en funcionamiento únicamente tienes que doblar el parasol por la mitad, agarrar con pinzas o imperdibles la parte inferior o superior (lo mismo dá) y darle forma de embudo, tal y como aparece en la foto. En esa ocasión me tuve que hacer con un pedazo de caña (Arundo donax L.) y amarrala al poste debido al viento que hacía.

    Ya sólo es cuestión de tiempo que se haga la comida. Para concretar con algunos datos, puedo decir que como media, en invierno, se tarda del orden de 2 horas en cocer arroz o en preparar patatas o boniatos. La c…

    [[Everest Base Camp trek has been popular among adventurers since Mount Everest was first surveyed in 19th century. Everest Base Camp trek difficulty is slightly strenuous and requires a fair level of fitness before you begin. Most of the trail lies at the altitude over 3 000m, though Mountain mart Trek adventure team has designed itinerary scientifically that avoids the possibility of AMS during entire trek ]]

    Mount Everest trek begins from Lukla, after 35 minutes scenic Mountain flight from ancient city Kathmandu. Our Everest base camp trek commences through the Sherpa villages and farmlands gradually rises to Namche Bazaar (3440m.) where couples of nights spend for acclimatization to be familiar with altitude.

    trekking in Nepal

    October 8, 2012 by Mountainmart

    [[Upper Dolpo trek lies hidden behind the Dhaulagiri Range in Nepal’s mid-western region where snow fed streams run off high mountains but few are perennial. Lower (Outer) Dolpo is characterised by a semi arid topography with deep gullies and narrow valleys while Upper (Inner) Dolpo comprises a vast arid region of rolling semi-desert highlands, a continuation of the topography of the Tibetan plateau. ]]Tibetan plateau.

    Dolpo region is most easily reached by a flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj, in the humid south-west close to the Indian border, then to Dolpo’s airport at Juphal. A three days trek up the Phoksundo Khola through a mix of forests and arid landscapes leads to Ringmo and the beautiful Phoksundo Lake. This is Nepal’s deepest lak…

    I am a mechanical designer working from New Zealand. I have recently become interested in solar cookers and am intrigued by the solarcooking Wiki website. My research into this technology has so far led me to hundreds of websites and blogs depicting ultra cheap solar cooking units made specifically for the Third World. This is a fantastic scheme which does wonders for the planet and improves the lives of millions of people. I can't however get over the fact that solar cookers which cost relatively nothing to build only have a limited efficiency and as far as I can see only heat a pot of foodstuff to 120 - 180 degrees or thereabouts. Also there are limitations as to what you can cook in a saucepan / pot with a lid. To date I have addres…

    Hi! We are in South Africa, and with our solar cooking experimentation, we have come across a problem of finding a cheap, safe and effective pot to use with our solar cooker. We have managed to get a small black camping pot, but at a price of R700!! Please can you share with us your ideas.

    Thanks!

    For some reason the weather over this last summer has been mostly wet. This is good in one way, we were coming very close to running out of water and the constant rain has filled up our dams (an almost unimaginable amount of water).

    The down side is that I've barely been able to cook anything with my cookit for the last 6 months or more.

    Just last week I tried a curry roast chicken and also a pot of mixed vegetables (pumpkin, potato and sweet potato). Both turned out great, and the temperature got up to 130 C for the chicken.

    I like the idea of that electric solar oven, because we get intermittent clouds here so the temperature of my cookit goes up and down every time a cloud goes over. the electric oven would need very little energy to ke…

    Teaching Solar Cooking

    October 24, 2009 by Pleitch

    My partner is a teacher. She recently took the solar Cokit in to her class (year 6) and cooked for the entire class. She served up cherios (small hot-dog like sausages with the red skin). The children were amazed at the temperatures it got to, and other teaches said it would be a life changing experience.

    Importantly I printed out some signs: "Danger HOT" and "Warning Hot Surface" signs. We got the pictures from the internet, printed and laminated them. I've stuck them to the oven for when I use it at work - better safe than sorry.
