The Worst Railroad in the World

Would like to know where this is....
Update: The railroad track is a short-narrow gauge that used to be popular in pre-independent India. (probably in the North-Eastern area of India. Perhaps Shillong, or near Darjeeling.)

Adorable... bird killers

These are tarsiers found in Bohol, Philippines. (more info)

(photos by Karen Florendo)

Their eyes are connected ("wired") to their brain in a unique way, different from all other primates.

They catch insects by jumping at them, and apparently can even catch a bird in motion while jumping from tree to tree.

The railroad tracks are such narrow gauge that I suspect it's from a mine of some kind. Further, the overgrowth on the tracks leads me to believe it's been abandoned for quite a while.

The railroad track is a short-narrow gauge that used to be popular in pre-independent India. The school-dress (white+blue) is very common in schools around rural areas. I'd say an educated guess would put this somewhere in the North-Eastern area of India. Perhaps Shillong, or near Darjeeling.

I'm willing to bet those "twilight clouds" are the result of aerosol spraying. Google images "chemtrails".
