Fruit in Egypt

Fruit in Egypt

I am not sure if Egypt is the land of milk and honey, but one thing is for sure, it is the land of fruits. I particularly like this time of year. Fruit shops and street vendors sell huge watermelons. They are blood red and as sweet as one’s taste buds can handle. There are rock melons and apricots, prunes, bananas and crunchy apples on every corner and every supermarket. Not to forget the ever so sweet red and green grapes.

Watch Gladiators in action then ride your own Chariot in Jordan

A trumpet strikes a triumphant note and two dozen stony-faced soldiers, dressed in red tunics and armed to the teeth, come marching toward us, breastplates glinting under the fierce Jordanian sun. A nasal voice rings out across the arena: “The year is 130 AD…” At least, for the next 45 minutes it is.


Bursa - Turkey

Bursa - Turkey

The city was referred to as "Hüdavendigar" (meaning "God's Gift") during the Ottoman period, while a more recent nickname is "Yeşil Bursa" (meaning "Green Bursa") in reference to the parks and gardens located across its urban tissue, as well as to the vast forests in rich variety that extend in the surrounding region. The city is synonymous with Mount Uludağ which towers behind its core and which is also a famous ski resort. The mausoleums of early the Ottoman sultans are located in Bursa and the numerous edifices built throughout the Ottoman period constitute the city's main landmarks. The surrounding fertile plain, its thermal baths, several interesting museums, notably a rich museum of archaeology, and a rather orderly urban growth are further principal elements that complete Bursa's overall picture.


Stepping towards a true pyramid

Stepping towards a true pyramid

Extensive use of stone—here and there carved to resemble wood, reeds, or other softer materials—made the tomb more durable than its mud-brick forebears. Such pioneering techniques led many ancient historians to credit the chief architect, Imhotep, with inventing stone architecture. Imhotep, architect of the Step Pyramid, physician, priest, and founder of a cult of healing—was deified 1,400 years after his lifetime.
