The Two Towers
🇬🇧 Skyscrapers among old buildings and trees are normal sight in developing countries such as Thailand as well as other places in South East Asia. Some of them are eventually going to be relocated but meanwhile it's nice to see a natural greenery in a concrete jungle
When was the last time you're in Bangkok ? What's your favorite place there ?
🇮🇩 Gedung pencakar langit di antara bangunan tua dan pepohonan adalah pemandangan normal di negara berkembang seperti Thailand dan juga tempat lain di Asia Tenggara. Sebagian besar akan direlokasi namun sementara waktu, kita bisa menikmati nuansa alam yang hijau di tengah kota modern
Kapan kamu terakhir ke Bangkok ? Tempat mana yang jadi favoritmu di sana ?
After an amazing few weeks we are now back home in the uk. Still in time for all it's autumnal beauty! I think my Italy photos are going to have to wait a little while until I get Autumn out of my system 🤣😍
I love this row of cottages in Castle Combe. If you look very closely to the chimney on the right you can see all the smoke from the fire billowing out into the cold Autumn morning. I'm not looking forward to the colder days that are on their way but they sure are beautiful.
What's your favourite season?

Caption Photo 1: Purnima (9), gets dressed by her aunty and cousin in her home in Bhaktapur, Nepal. She has spent 12 days in a dark room in her house. Today she is getting ready for her Bahara (wedding) with the Sun, a representation of the hindu God Vishnu.
Caption Photo 2: Purnima is taken by female member of her family from the dark room to the rooftop of her house covered by a red cloth to avoid seeing the sunlight.
Caption Photo 3: Anshu (9)is uncovered during the Bahara, seeing sunlight for the first time in 13 days.
Caption Photo 4: Anshu wears typical Newari jewellery and hairstyle during her Bahara, her representative marriage with the Sun.
Before they have their first menstruation, Newari girls should spend 12 days in a dark room in their own home under a ritual called Gufa: they would not be allowed to see either the sunlight or a man. Only the women from her family will visit them during the day for teaching her everything the future women she will be should know. Even male family member are not allowed to see them.
In the 13th day, girls are ready for the Bahara: they will get married with the Sun in a ritual carry out by female member of her family, in the intimacy of their own house. The wedding with the god will protect girls forever.
This is not a story about child marriage. This is the story of ancestral rituals carry on by Newari women from the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal.
Newari women get married three times in their lives: First with a fruit; then with the Sun; later with a man.
Families believe keeping alive these rituals as a way to protect their daughters from the stigma of widowhood, still very present in Nepal: if their future husband die, they will not be consider widows, as they had previously married with the God.
Non ho capito se Corfù sia un’isola in costruzione o in distruzione. Corfù città è una vecchia signora che si agghinda per ricevere ospiti (dalle navi da crociera a orde!), ma il resto dell’isola è più una signora lasciata a se stessa, che gira tra le sue stesse macerie. Sembra l’Italia liberata dagli alleati che si allontanavano con le loro jeep lasciando tutto mezzo bombardato. In questa povera isola nei secoli ci sono passati tutti, ma propri tutti, lasciandola senza alcun splendore della Grecia antica.
