  • Are You Brave Enough to Fly 75mph Along World's Longest Over-Water Zip Line

    Are you a thrill seeker looking for the next adrenaline rush? Do you love the rush of wind in your hair as you fly through the air hundreds of feet above the ground? Well, perhaps you should make your way down to Mexico's Acapulco and try out the world's longest zipline course running over water. Daredevils can ride on the zipline, which spanns nearly a mile in length, and enjoy the majestic sights of Puerto Marques Bay, all while hurtling along at speeds of up to 75 mph. Four separate lines suspended 328 feet above sea level run parallel from a mountaintop on the mainland and over the Puerto Marques bay to the end of the line, located on the tip of the Cabo Marques Peninsula. Before ziplines became the tourist attractions they are today, they were used to fulfill a very practical need - crossing large expanses and chasms. Civilizations across the world, including Asia and Europe, used ziplines as bridges when no better path could be found. Even when bridges were built, some ziplines continued to be used to transport food and other goods. But now, they are mainly used to provide the thrill of flying and zipping through the air.

  • Thirst for clean water

    Some 650 million people, or one in 10 of the world's population, do not have access to safe water, putting them at risk of infectious diseases and premature death. Dirty water and poor sanitation can cause severe diarrhoeal diseases in children, killing 900 under-fives a day across the world, according to United Nations estimates - or one child every two minutes. This year's U.N. World Water Day is designed to highlight the socioeconomic benefits of water - how it can create paid work and contribute to a greener economy. No reporter narration.
