Continuously inhabited for 7000 years, Byblos is one of the oldest cities in the World ⏳.
Byblos is a true microcosm of the civilizations that have populated Lebanon over the centuries.
The city witnessed the presence of Phoenicians, Assyrians, Romans, Crusaders, Mamluks and Ottomans🗝.
City’s Arabic name is Jbeil (جبَيل). The name Byblos is Greek and it means papyrus📜.Because papyrus was one of the principal articles in its trade, the Greeks took the name of the city as their word for book- biblos. Arguably the Bible was named for Byblos as it was known as “the papyrus book” 📕.

The Plain of Jars (Lao: ທົ່ງໄຫຫິນ [tʰōŋ hǎj hǐn]) is a megalithic archaeological landscape in Laos. It consists of thousands of stone jars scattered around the upland valleys and the lower foothills of the central plain of the Xiangkhoang Plateau. The jars are mostly arranged in clusters ranging in number from one to several hundred.
The Xieng Khouang Plateau is located at the northern end of the Annamese Cordillera, the principal mountain range of Indochina. French researcher Madeleine Colani concluded in 1930 that the jars were associated with prehistoric burial practices. Excavation by Lao and Japanese archaeologists in the intervening years has supported this interpretation with the discovery of human remains, burial goods and ceramics around the jars. The Plain of Jars is dated to the Iron Age(500 BC to AD 500) and is one of the most important prehistoric sites in Southeast Asia.

Oh this leather good store is soooo colorful and So I am! 😝💙🧡💛💚❤️💜 This is a shoes and bag store in Saigon called @dominiquesaintpaul . They have fantastic designs and creative color mix ( and the colors are hand painted!! ) for the shoes as you can see in the pics. I just loooove how they make the inside of the shoes in blue cuz I looooove blue 💙 We went to get Dan a pair of black and he already have a brown ones which he really loves. If you can’t find the 👞you like or fit on the shelf, they’ll make it to order (of their designs) within 1 month, all French leather 😍
After a long chase, the young foal is caught and dressed with a blue ribbon before being released: it has been raining for the last two days, tomorrow the horses will be milked. It’s intriguing to see how Mongolian herders have implemented modern tools into their way of life, such as motorbikes to manage the herd. Also cute to see the dam stay with her baby foal when it is finally caught at the end of the video

Young children don’t care about differences of nationality, faith or race. As long as their companions smile, they play together happily. It seems it’s only as we grow up, in the course of education, that focussing on secondary differences between people creates trouble.

Just posted a very special video on my channel🥰 I put together some memories from the yoga teacher training that I did in February this year at @mathatitu Yoga Ashram. It was an incredible journey shared with beautiful people, the Universe brought us together to create this powerful energy✨💫 I hope you can experience at least a fraction of it through this video, please watch (link in my bio)😇🙏🏻
When you’ve been awake for 3 days straight and the two buses full of middle school aged children on their way to a spelling bee competition abroad get to the immigration line before you...
These pictures would be best viewed with an onslaught of piercing sirens, the honking of yellow taxis and a New Yorker pushing you out of the way while clutching an overpriced coffee.
Envision the smell of car exhausts and pollution while neon lights flash and you clasp your Broadway tickets fiercely in an excited fist.
Face craned upward, mouth agape as the madness unfolds in the frenetic city. Myself and Michael navigate the hullabaloo, holding hands tightly to keep from floating away like a pair of silly balloons.
Here is one of Cusco's most cute and cuddly citizens! 😍 While you're visiting this special city, you'll have the chance to meet many adorable animals who are ready for a photo op with you. Would you like a memorable photo with a baby llama or alpaca? 😉
