evangelionDude :
"I always have dreams about swimming with dolphins…. Just wanted to share that… You think I could put some in my swimming pool?"
sg1alias :
"Dolphins need to be in salt water and in most countries it's illegal to get close to a dolphin. I doubt you have the right kind of fish and it's probably too cold. And there are more reports of dolphins attacking people than sharks. Or do you mean the fish kind of dolphin like the mahi mahi. Then I don't care go right ahead they are used for food anyway (the mahi mahi fish not the mammal)."
Soren Riise :
"It this the place? Dolphins are mainly salt water animals -- so not you cannot put them in a lake. I don't know why you would consider them to be an environmental benefit -- what do they do to the environment that you think is needed in the lake? In most places it is even illegal to import non-native species -- reason being that non-native species causes an in-balance in the ecosystem -- so no -- don't even think about it....."

The Annapurna Circuit is the most popular trek in Nepal. The entire trek lasts three weeks from start to finish, weather permitting. Most trekkers begin the trek out of Pokhara (about five hours outside of Kathmandu). From there one must obtain an easy-to-process permit in order to spend more than one night on the circuit.

It is Easter 2007, a day when the world is celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. They came from near and far throughout Central and Midwestern Nepal, the throng of masses converging and marching through the center of the crown city of Pokhara, at the foot of the Annapurna mountain range.
