Omaž Siriji: HRIŠĆANSKO SELO MALULA (6)
Omaž Siriji: HRIŠĆANSKO SELO MALULA (6)

* Imala sam tu sreću da Siriju proputujem sredinom 2008, tri godine pre nego što je počeo rat. Ovo je podsećanje na državu izuzetnog kulturnog nasleđa, uz svesrdnu želju da u Siriji ponovo zavlada mir i da se zemlja brzo obnovi.

Homage to SYRIA!

 

This was one of the countries I had in mind when thinking about writing stories from various parts of the world. So rich in history with such diversity in culture and tradition that I feel extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to visit while there was still peace.

Homage-to-Syria-series-Glimpses-of-The-WorldIt was only two and a half years before the actual seven-year war broke out and I still can’t seem to grasp the fact that some of the places I have seen are not there any more, 2,000-year old temples – vanished into the air! (more…)

Lisbon: A FADO FAREWELL (7)

Once again (as I did in Barcelona with flamenco previously), I left the Fado Theater Show for my last day in Lisbon. Did know few things about fado, heard some songs, but I was surprised by its outspread in the city. (more…)

Lisbon: UP THE STEEP COBBLED STREETS OF ALFAMA (4)
Lisbon: UP THE STEEP COBBLED STREETS OF ALFAMA (4)

Streets of the city were so charming. Although steep and narrow, almost always on cobblestone, they often had elegant mosaics made out of dark stone cuts. Mosaics were frequent – what if I tell you that I went into various metro stations just to see the mosaics? They were so vibrant and colorful, genuine artwork on the walls! (more…)
