Exit the train at Edinburgh Waverley Street Station and gasp with wonder at Edinburgh in August. Princes Street Gardens is in full bloom, and the city attracts thousands of foreign and UK visitors alike. August in Edinburgh is synonymous with one of the finest arts and cultural festivals on the planet: The Edinburgh International and Fringe Festival. Whether a visit to the opera is your idea of how to spend an idyllic evening, or some traditional Asian, African, South American or Indian music or dance takes your fancy, Edinburgh is the place to be. The city gyrates to the rhythm of an eclectic mixture of the arts on a truly global scale, and to walk the streets of the city on any given day during the festival is to behold humankind at its most altruistic.

Over 12,000 feet above sea level, Lake Titicaca forms the border between Bolivia and Peru. Fed by five rivers and connecting several Bolivian and Peruvian towns along the shoreline, the lake is held sacred by both nations and the native people continue to live peacefully by the tranquil waters of the lake.
In Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia, an Eastern European nation that used to be a part of the Soviet Union, three different cultures co-exist in harmony. Like in much of Eastern Europe, the dominant religion here is Orthodox Christian, but the city also features sizeable Jewish and Muslim communities. Tbilisi is notable for being one of the very few locations in the works where a mosque and a synagogue are situated alongside one another.
There are 50 sovereign states that make up the continent of Europe, as well as six regions or territories that are partially recognised. These states and territories are home to over 700 million inhabitants, all known as “Europeans” but whose diversity is evident in the areas of language, religion, government, philosophy, culture, economy, etc. When speaking of a “European culture,” it is difficult to separate the overlapping, cross-cultural diversities that make up the “culture” of this vast continent. In the area of European sports, however, we can speak in terms of similarities and differences, all of which contribute to form a healthy blend of apolitical, cross-cultural cooperation and understanding.
