Эльбрус день 3 🏔
Дошли до красивейшего водопада «Девичьи косы» 💦, а потом до обсерватории, высота как вчера примерно 3200м 👍🏻👌🏻 Сегодня дорога далась нам немного легче, хотя прошли гораздо больше 🏔
Очень хочется показать вам Эльбрус, но на фото он выглядит обычной горой 😀 А в жизни у меня пробегает холодок по спине от его масштабов 🙈😅 Но попозже покажу обязательно 😉
А завтра мы дойдём до царства снегов и останемся там на 4-5 дней ❄️ Связи выше 3800м тоже почти нет, не теряйте 😊

Sometimes, I still can't believe I call NYC my home. I vividly remember telling myself "I'd never want to live here" about ten years ago when I was visiting. Fast-forwarding to the present time, I sometimes can't imagine myself living elsewhere. It was, and still is, a love and hate relationship I have with this beautiful city. But NYC has stolen my heart with its irresistible charms and a heavenly smell of subway trains.
It is difficult to establish what the earliest flag of Norway looked like. During ancient times countries did not fly flags. Kings and other rulers flew flags, especially in battle. Saint Olav used a serpent within a white mark at the Battle of Nesjar. Prior to this the raven or dragon was used. Magnus the Good used the same mark as Saint Olav. Harald Hardråde used the raven banner. This flag was flown by various Viking chieftains and other Scandinavian rulers during the 9th, 10th, and 11th centuries AD. Inge used a red lion on gold. Sverre used an eagle in gold and red. The earliest known flag which could be described as a national flag of Norway is the one used today as the Royal Standard. Eirik Magnusson used a flag described as a golden lion with axe and crown on red from 1280 and this was since regularly the flag of the King of Norway and thereby also of Norway.
The national flag of the United Kingdom is the Union Jack, also known as the Union Flag.
The current design of the Union Jack dates from the union of Ireland and Great Britain in 1801. It consists of the red cross of Saint George (patron saint of England), edged in white, superimposed on the Cross of St Patrick (patron saint of Ireland), which are superimposed on the Saltire of Saint Andrew (patron saint of Scotland). Wales is not represented in the Union Flag by Wales's patron saint, Saint David, as at the time the flag was designed Wales was part of the Kingdom of England.
The flag of Denmark (Danish: Dannebrog, pronounced [ˈtænəˌpʁoːˀ]) is red with a white Scandinavian cross that extends to the edges of the flag; the vertical part of the cross is shifted to the hoist side.
A banner with a white-on-red cross is attested as having been used by the kings of Denmark since the 14th century. An origin legend with considerable impact on Danish national historiography connects the introduction of the flag to the Battle of Lindanise of 1219. The elongated Nordic cross reflects the use as maritime flag in the 18th century. The flag became popular as national flag in the early 19th century. Its private use was outlawed in 1834, and again permitted in a regulation of 1854. The flag holds the world record of being the oldest continuously used national flag.
