In letzter Zeit habe ich einige Erzählungen von Alexander Pushkin, dem russischen Schriftsteller und Gründer der modernen russischen Literatur gelesen und eine Geschichte mit dem Namen «Dubrovsky « hat mir besonders gut gefallen. Übrigens scheint die Erzählung auf einer wahren Geschichte zu ruhen und ist unvollendet.

Es geht um zwei etwa gleichaltrige adelige Gutsherren und Nachbarn. Beide sind verwitwet und leben auf dem Land. Der eine ist ehemaliger General, reich und hat ein enorm grosses Gut, sowie eine Tochter mit dem Namen Masha. Der andere ist verarmt und ehemaliger Gardeoberleutnant mit einem kleinen Gut und einem Sohn mit dem Namen Dubrovsky. Dieser dient in einem Petersburger Regiment.

I have recently read some of Alexander Pushkin’s narrations and the one with the title “DUBROVSKY has particularly impressed me positively. By the way, this writer has also been founder…

The road is empty. There are not many tourists on the way to the Red Canyon. We can only see soldiers passing by with their vans. When you look more closely you can sense the military activity in the region. Nearby the road it’s possible to spot the Israeli bunkers, but also the Egyptian military shelters and serious looking soldiers who are keeping watch on the other side of the border. It feels like we are entering a battlefield, but we still continue or way to the Red Canyon. 

We find the location and go from the main road into the Israeli desert. The road is sandy and you can smell the dust. It’s a nice contrast between the quiet desert and my little brother talking loudly in the car. I enjoy the environment and look into the landscape of sand dunes to spot some animals and plants.

Dear Taj & Dear Me

I wore a serene smile.
I was barefoot for a while,
The woman within my tender age shivered
When Taj touched me, and I was so drawn to it.

Dear Taj, ‘Why do you make me smile such sweet smile?‘

In all its beauty and ecstasy,
I was so sure of one thing,
That I was destined for something,
Which I kept searching in silence here.

Dear Taj, ‘Have you not fallen in love with me yet?’ ❤️

Myrela

Iako je još u drugom vijeku rimski geograf Ptolomej tvrdio da se izvor Nila nalazi u srcu Afrike, na vrhu “Mjesečevih planina”, Evropljani su otkrili Ruvenzori vijenac tek 1889. godine. Sigurno su se prijatno iznenadili Artur Džefson i Tomas Park, članovi ekspedicije Henrija Mortona Stenlija, kada su ugledali snježne vrhove tačno na ekvatoru. Međutim, kako su u to vrijeme Englezi imali druge ciljeve, taj planinski vijenac ostao je neistražen do 1906. godine. Tada je princ Luiđi od Savoje organizovao ekspediciju, tako da je najviši vrh (sa 5.109 metara po visini treći vrh u Africi) nazvan Maunt Margerita po tadašnjoj kraljici Italije, iako je najznačajnija planina u Ruvenzori vijencu dobila ime po Britancu, lordu Stenliju.

Planine Ruvenzori, koje se protežu 129 kilometara pravcem sjever-jug i 48 kilometara u širinu, neobična su tvorevina prekambrijskih stijena nevulkanskog porijekla. Formirane su od gromade koja je izbila na površinu tokom stvaranja zapadne grane Velike istočnoafričke…

Externsteine und Hermannsdenkmal

patchwork family Kramer-Wiehle

Normalerweise merke ich mir immer das Große Ganze und nicht Details wie Jahrestage, Entfernungen und ähnliche Daten.
Doch das Jahr 9 unserer Zeitrechnung und die Schlacht im Teutoburger Wald, wo unter Führung von Hermann dem Cherusker die Römer besiegt wurden, ist eine der wenigen Ausnahmen.
Es war Anfang September, die Sonne strahlte vom Himmel und die Schule hatte wieder begonnen. Da stand wie immer die Frage, welches Fach von wem unterrichtet wurde. Das fünfte Schuljahr war ja besonders spannend, da einige neue Fächer den Lehrplan bereicherten. Das traf auch auf Geschichte zu. Hier handelte es sich für uns nicht nur um ein neues Stoffgebiet, auch die uns zugedachte Frau “G” war völlig neu an der Schule. Sie hatte ihre ersten Stunden nach bestandenem Examen zu absolvieren. Wir sollten Frau “G” lieben lernen. Sie war jung, charmant immer modern gekleidet, konnte zuhören und mit uns lachen. Sie stellte niemanden bloß und…

“The beauty of Maine is such that you can’t see it clearly while you live there. But now that I’ve moved away, with each return it becomes almost almost hallucinatory: the dark blue water, the rocky coast with occasional flashes of white sand, the jasper stone beaches along the coast, the pine and fir forests somehow vivid in their stillness.”Alexander Chee

Help Save the Birdman of Kashmir. Save Rasool : A Fundraiser

happy travelling, Narayan

Best wishes
craig

“Travel sparks our imagination, feeds our curiosity and reminds us how much we all have in common.”

ROAD TO NARA

Some of you may remember Rasool. My guardian, and the one who brought Kashmir to me. I had written about him more than a few times. But for the ones who might not have heard about this Birdman, this magic man, must read this first.

Remember me with a Lotus: Memoirs of Heaven and Birds in Kashmir

But if you have skipped and are reading this. Let me please request you to meet him first yourself.

You must have known that for some time i had been meaning to do something for Rasool. Not because i must but more because his life is more important than most. As he knew, he understood how valuable, how important others lives are. He loved, protected and cared for the lives of those who were left to fend for themselves. He saved the birds and all nature beings as his own.

For me, to…
