    In this Monday, April 22, 2013 photo, Malaysian landscape architect Ng Sek San, 50, speaks during an interview in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Malaysians face a stark choice Sunday, May 5, 2013 in their most hotly contested general elections ever. Stick with what they know, a long-ruling coalition accused of corruption, or take a chance on an untested opposition. Ng has earned praise for his work in Malaysian hotels and parks, but he considers his latest initiative, the "Malaysian Spring," to be among his most ambitious. The volunteer movement that he and his friends introduced through Facebook this past month has prompted residents of Kuala Lumpur's suburbs to hand-produce and plant tens of thousands of colorful miniature flags in grassy sidewalks and playgrounds, symbolizing their hope for a fresh political start.

    A woman peers through a window from inside Sloppy Joe's Bar before its reopening in Havana, Cuba, Friday, April 12, 2013. The bar stands between several high-end tourist hotels and is mere steps from some of Havana's most important museums. A sloppy sandwich and a cocktail will set you back $13 plus tip, far too pricey for Cubans who scrape by on government salaries averaging $20 a month. The bar was shuttered in 1965 as Fidel Castro's Communist government nationalized nearly all private enterprise. (AP Photo/Franklin Reyes)

    Tourists sail on dhows around Lamu island in the Indian Ocean off the northern coast of Kenya March 27, 2013. Kenya's tourism industry may be a swift winner from the election of Uhuru Kenyatta, owner of hotels and a vast business empire, as east Africa's biggest economy seeks to benefit from a vote that avoided a re-run of bloodshed of five years ago.

    In this March 21, 2013 photo, workers paint red the exterior of a home in Jalousie, a cinder block shantytown in Petionville, Haiti. Jalousie is unique in that its mountainside presence makes it visible to people living in the wealthy district of Petionville. Critics have suggested that the choice of Jalousie for a makeover is as much about giving the posh hotels of Petionville a pretty view as helping the slum's residents. (AP Photo/Dieu Nalio Chery)
