The famous author, poet, and social activist, Maya Angelou, dropped out of Mission High School at age 15 to work the cable cars.   “The thought of sailing up and down the hills of San Francisco in a dark-blue uniform, with a money changer at my belt, caught my fancy,” she later recalled.

San Francisco was originally named Yerba Buena. In 1835, San Francisco was called Yerba Buena, Spanish for “Good Herb”, a fragrant mint plant that grew along the shoreline of the bay. In 1847, the name was changed to San Francisco after Saint Francis.

https://tabulaa.com/vitae/swim_with_sharks

Sharks are a long-bodied, chiefly marine fish, with a cartilaginous skeleton, a prominent dorsal fin, and toothlike scales. Most sharks are predatory, although the largest kinds feed on plankton.  Most other fish are covered in smooth, flat scales. A shark is covered in sharp, toothlike scales called denticles.

Hammerhead sharks are nomadic, travel from Florida coasts to polar regions and adapt to different temperatures through aquatic globetrotting.  Different sharks have their babies in different ways. Some lay egg cases. Others grow the pups inside of them and give birth to live young. Depending on the species, a shark may give birth to one or to dozens of pups and the mother shark does not stay around to take care of it.

Bucket List - Wakeboarding

https://tabulaa.com/vitae/wakeboard

Wakeboarding is the sport of riding on a short, wide board resembling a surfboard and performing acrobatic maneuvers while being towed behind a motorboat.  The term “wakeboarding” was coined by Paul Fraser (Vancouver, Canada), his brother Murray, and a pro snowboarder they sponsored.

The wakeboarder is frequently towed by a motorboat. The wakeboarder can also be towed by other means such as closed-course cables, PWCs, trucks or cars, winches, and ATVs.  Wakeboarding was derived from the mix of snowboarding, surfing, and water skiing routines.

The Louvre is an art museum that is a famous tourist attraction in Paris, France.

The Louvre, which is along the banks of the Seine River in Paris, is the world’s largest museum and one of the most well-known museums in the world. This magnificent structure, which has housed priceless art in France since 1793, is among Paris’ most popular tourist attractions.

In 1190, Parisians were concerned about the potential of invasion of their city from the north, as they feared the Vikings would cross the sea from Scandinavia and raid Paris. The Louvre was built as a fortress to protect against these possible raids at the order of King Phillipe-Auguste. 

While the Louvre has some of the most-famous pieces of art in existence in its permanent collection, none is more famous than the Leonardo da Vinci painting known as “Mona Lisa.”

Tabulaa:  Bucket List - Attend Hare Krisna Color Festival
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/attend_hare_krisna_color_festival

This festival represents the passing of winter into spring. Traditionally, colored powder or water is thrown to signify the joy and colors of spring arriving. This festival is observed in countries with a large Hindu population like Suriname, Trinidad, the United Kingdom, India and Nepal.   

The International Society for Krishna Conciousness (ISKCON) is a modern movement within this tradition. It was founded by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (1896-1977), a devotee of Krishna, upon his arrival to America from India in 1965.

ISKCON gained further publicity (and financial support) through the interest of the Beatle George Harrison. The first Hare Krishna commune was established by Prabhupada as “New Vrindavan” in West Virginia in 1968.

In India, Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. The festival breathes an atmosphere of social merriment. People bury their hatchets with a warm embrace and throw their worries to the wind. 
People in small groups are seen singing, dancing and throwing colors on each other.
