If you found this blog interesting you can also check

" ...ONLY IN ART DOES IT STILL HAPPEN THAT A MAN WHO IS CONSUMED BY DESIRES PERFORMS SOMETHING RESEMBLING THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THOSE DESIRES AND THAT WHAT HE DOES IN PLAY PRODUCES EMOTIONAL EFFECTS - THANKS TO ARTISTIC ILLUSION - JUST AS THOUGH IT WERE SOMETHING REAL. PEOPLE SPEAK WITH JUSTICE OF THE "MAGIC OF ART" AND COMPARE ARTISTS TO MAGICIANS. ..."

Madurai - city
One of those small mills spread all over the city.
They grind rice, wheat and chilly to powder,
used in the Tamil kitchen for curries.

The dust here prickle your nose and your longs already.

I went back and caught the same scene but with prettier light. (See the older version at flickr.com/photos/kosovakid/2942400080/). It's only a ten minute bike ride from my house, so expect more photos of this place in the months to come.

Tortoise Point of View, originally uploaded by Collin Key.

Bergama (Pergamon), Turkey: The ancient Greek ruins of Pergamon from the turtles point of view. It is her place now.

A (perspectively) huge straw was splitting that poor animal right through the middle. Felt like a Sisyphus' task to reconstruct that shell's structure.

The ancient greek city of Pergamon is an impressiv site on nowadays turkish territory. Even more so from a turtle's point of view. For German's it does have an extra interest: The famous altar of Zeus (2nd century BC) is exhibited at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin and therefor missing at the original site. Turkish authorities claim from German authorities a Greek temple ... this is Europe, too.

Fishin' on the Mekong river


Fishin' on the Mekong river, originally uploaded by Bеn.

The Mekong is one of the world’s major rivers. It is the 11th-longest river in the world. Its estimated length is 4,909 km and it drains an area of 795,000 km2. From the Tibetan Plateau it runs through China's Yunnan province, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. The biodiversity of the Mekong mountains is one of the richest in the world. More than 1200 species of fish have been identified and there could be possibly as many as 1700. Fishing is a very important part of the economic activities in the area and a vital source of protein in the local diet. Even the rare species of freshwater dolphin, the Irrawaddy dolphin can be seen at the Lower Mekong. Irrawaddy dolphins have been documented participating in cooperative fishing with humans using cast nets by driving the fish towards these fisherman in response to acoustic signals from them.

Photo of a local fisherman at the Mekong river in Vientiane taken just before sunset.

De Mekong is een rivier in Zuidoost-Azië. De rivier is 4909 kilometer lang en wordt beschouwd als één van de belangrijke rivieren in Azië. De rivier loopt achtereenvolgens door de landen China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodja en Vietnam. De Mekong ontspringt in het Tanglhagebergte in China en mondt met een delta (Mekong-delta) uit in de Zuid-Chinese Zee. In de rivier leeft de grootste soort meerval ter wereld. De biodiversiteit van de Mekong bergen is één van rijkst aan de wereld. Meer dan 1200 soorten vis zijn geïdentificeerde en misschien nog wel meer. De visserij is economisch zeer belangrijk en een essentiële bron van proteïne in het lokale dieet. In het lage gedeelte bij de Mekong-delta komen zelfs nog de bezondere irrawaddydolfijnen voor. In sommige gebieden werken de twee samen: de dolfijnen drijven vissen de netten van de vissers in, en de vissers belonen de dolfijnen met een klein deel van de vangst. In deze gebieden worden deze dieren vereerd.
