  The Great Rift Valley is an approximately 6, km continuous geographic trench on the earth’s crust which stretches from Lebanon’s Beqaa Valley in Asia through Kenya to Mozambique in South-Eastern Africa. The vast valley holds some of the planets greatest lakes, plains and mountains. The Great Rift Valley literally cuts Kenya into two.   Looking down on the small holder farms of Escarpment in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley * And on Shropshire farm fields from Wenlock Edge. It’s an interesting thought that in time the Great Rift Valley could become a seascape, for even now the earth’s crust is pulling apart along its 6, kilometre length.

  The lake lies mainly in Kenya’s northern Rift Valley, covering an area of 6, km and at m above sea level. Formed millions of years ago by the tectonic upheavals that created East Africa’s Great Rift Valley, Turkana is the largest permanent desert lake in the world.   Edge of Nowhere simply won`t. Well nice I payed 40€ (50$). Man - does someone know what´s the problem? Was so happy to have time to play today. When trying to launch it via VR (Oculus home) I simply are returned to the Home Screen (coming from the library). And seriously with the SH*TTY Oculus Support it`s a pain.
