[⬅1/10] "The Hanging of Vasil Levski" by Hristo Botev is a poem that every school child in Bulgaria knows.  I've tried to translate it as accurate as I can. Today is the 146th anniversary of his death.🇧🇬 ✝

--
O, my Mother, dear Motherland!
Why are you so grievously crying?
And you, Raven, you damned bird,
On who's grave, you are so ugly croaking?
--
--
O, I know, I know, you weep, mother,
because you are a black slave;
because your holy voice, mother,
is a voice without help, a voice in the wilderness!
--
--
Weep on! There, near the city of Sofia
I saw a ghastly gallow standing.
And your own son, Bulgaria
Hangs on him with a dreadfull force. --
--
Winter sings its evil song.
Whirlwinds are chasing thorns in the field
And cold and frost and hopeless tears
Wring and twist your heart with pain.
--
--
The raven gives its grim hoarse croak,
Dogs and wolves howling in the mists, 
Old men in prayers their God invoke,
Women shed tears, the children scream.
--
--
He already died! Your heroic strength
your tyrants hid beneath the earth!
O, my mother, my dear motherland,
weep for him, curse the fate!
--

"The Hanging of Vasil Levski" is the last poem of Botev. It was printed in "Calendar for 1876" under the image of Vasil Levski.

Dunluce Castle terletak di pinggir Samudera Atlantik di Antrim, Irlandia Utara. Sekitar 90km dari Belfast .
.
Kastil abad pertengahan ini awalnya dibangun pada abad 13, oleh Richard Óg de Burgh, Earl ke dua Ulster. Dikembangkan pada abad 16 oleh McQuillan. Setelah itu  berganti-ganti pemilik tergantung siapa klan pemenang . .
Setelah Battle of Boyne, terjadi kemiskinan para di Inggris dan Irlandia. Kastil tidak terawat. Mulai rusak dan materialnya dicuri oleh orang-orang sekitar .
.
Ada banyak sekali points of interest di sepanjang coastal route. Kota-kota kecilnya cakep-cakep. Gereja dan kuburan tuanya luar biasa. Pantainya bersih dan biru. Cuma, ya gitu deh, adem hahaha .
. 
Diam-diam kami berencana kembali ke Irlandia Utara dan akan melakukan road trip susur pantai. Rencana doang sih hahaha. .
But honestly, Northern Ireland is exceeded expectation .

Now Christmas and Valentine's Day are out the way... I'm definitely in the mood for something to look forward to in the form of some 'Spring Sun'! I recommend Seville - its great for culture, guitar accompanied wine lunches and amazing art! Both North African and Spanish influences have created the most beautiful architecture and backdrop for a sun soaked city break with plenty to see across 4 days. The temperatures reach the early 20C's as early as March and Summer-like days in the mid-late 20's are well under way by May. This micro climate demands a pool hotel (we loved Melia Sevilla near Plaza de Espana) or if thats not for you, stay in town in a quintessential apartment to get the full authentic experience. Be prepared to eat your weight in Tapas during this stunning city break you are guarenteed to enjoy. #seville #citybreak #meliasevilla #royalalcazar #parquedemarialuisa #plazadeespaña #oranges #food #tapas #wine #travel #spain #sun #holiday #trip #getaway #seetheworld #hotel #culture #history #treat #treatyoself #seebee #notsponsored

This is our beloved Charles Brandon in The Tudors.💦🤤
FACT :
Of course, the real Charles Brandon is not quite the man that Henry Cavill portrays in The Tudors, but he was an attractive, successful 16th century man nonetheless. In this blog, I'd like to cover a few features of Charles Brandon that make him one of the most interesting men of Henry VIII's reign. •

The year 1827 came with the great battle of Navarino. A naval battle between the Ottoman navy together with the Egyptian navy, against the allied forces of Britain, France and Russia, during the Greek war of independence. The Ottoman’s days of dominating the Mediterranean sea came to an end since the allied forces decisively defeated the Ottoman and the Egyptian forces resulting almost complete destruction of the Algerian navy which was an essential force of the Ottoman navy since the Algerian coast was the naval base of the Ottoman Empire.

Algeria, a country with a vast area and strategic location, and a province of the Ottoman Empire since the days of Barbarossa, is now without a defence force.

Because the stray herd has to be devoured by the wolves, France marched toward the Algerian coasts, in an attempt of conquest. The French forces were faced by a resistance led by the forces of Hussein Dey, the ruler of the Ottoman Regency of Algiers. But the French troops were able to settle in the coast of Sidi Fredj after defeating the Algerian forces in an unequal battle known as the battle of Stawali, to set the sails for colonialism that lasted for one hundred and thirty-two years (1830 - 1962).

Kwame Nkrumah memorial park. Last day.
"Io non sono africano perché sono nato in Africa, sono africano perché l'africa è nata in me".
Questa è stata la conclusione della mia seconda avventura ghanese, mi auguro non l'ultima poiché, oramai, davvero l'Africa è nata in me. .

#TheFavourite

Director: Yorgos Lanthimos
Stars: Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz
Runtime: 119 minutes
Year of Release: 2018
•••
Performances: 10/10
Screenplay: 10/10
Costumes/Makeup: 10/10
Editing: 9/10
Cinematography: 8/10
Score/Soundtrack: 9/10
•••
With 10 Oscar nominations to its name, "The Favourite" is by far one of the most well-received movies of last year. And deservedly so.
Yorgos Lanthimos' period piece, which uses real characters as protagonists and real events as its backbone, explores Queen Anne's relationship with Sarah Churchill and Abigail Hill, two rivaling cousins who will go to extreme lengths to charm their elder and gain her trust and friendship.
Fuelled by three of last year's very best performances by Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, and Rachel Weisz who brought all kinds of emotions to their incredibly entertaining characters, heavily contributing to making the film's tone balance between drama and comedy, "The Favourite" is before anything else a beautiful looking film that benefits from gorgeously fitting costume and production designs as well as excellent cinematography.
However, the true star of the film is its screenplay written by Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara, which uses smart and witty lines of dialogue to deliver a story that is both entertaining and engaging from the first scene to the last. Yorgos Lanthimos' trademark style also turned what very much felt like a Greek tragedy into more of a dramedy that worked surprisingly well, making the film a unique experience definitely worth checking out.
"The Favourite" is easily one of my favorite (pun intended) movies of 2018, and the film I'll personally be rooting for at this year's Oscars ceremony. Seek it out if you still haven't, it's well worth your time.

❤️me identifico ❤️ QUEM SOU... Sou aquela que pensa com o coração, fala com o olhar, sente com a alma e derrete-se em palavras... Falo o que penso, sinto o que ouço e assimilo o que vejo.

Sou aquela que pula sem medo, chora sem vergonha, sente sem arrependimento.
Guardo bondade em meu coração, jogo meus sonhos a sete ventos, vivo o amor de tantas formas.

Prazer, eu sou a Fênix♥️

Achaemenid Empire (First Persian Empire) was famous for religious tolerance. It is interesting that only jewish Messiah was in fact persian emperor Cyrus the Great who released nation of Israel from its exile and helped recounstruction of the temple in Jerusalem. He could be good role model for Iranians and Isralis today.

Armored dove of peace (Banksy) - one of the most frequently viewed murals in Betlehem, on the main road between Rachel’s Crossing and the Church of the Nativity, is that of the “targeted dove”. Here, a dove carrying an olive branch wears a bulletproof vest, while the cross-hairs of a rifle periscope target its breast. This picture has additional resonance for Christian visitors familiar with the biblical story of Noah and the dove sent out to find dry ground after the great flood #banksy #art #streetart #graffiti #graffitiphotographer #graffitiartist #mural #peace #doveofpeace #armor #target #sadstory #bethlehem #westbank #israel #израиль #palestine #jordan #lebanon #egypt #syria #history #historylover #historynerd #holyland #conflict #jerusalem #telaviv #haifa
