Out of Place - Ancient Black Sea Tunnel
There are ancient places in this world which hold vast secrets and mysteries that have existed since time unremembered. Here in the corners of the globe pervaded with both history and legend, sitting on the edges of the ancient world, we can find areas that both enthrall and puzzle to this day. Certainly one such place is the Black Sea, sprawled out between Southeastern Europe and Western Asia, bounded by the Pontic Mountains to the south and by the Caucasus Mountains to the east, and bordered by Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine. With an area of 436,400 km2 (168,500 sq. mi) and a maximum depth of around 2,212 m (7,257 ft.), the Black Sea is a vast body of water that was once an integral waterway in the ancient world, and has long been an essential part of the many ancient civilizations that shared its shores, including the Greeks, who considered it the edge of the known world. It was once called merely “The Sea,” and later came to be known as the “Inhospitable Sea,” due to the savage tribes that lived along its shores in the days before the Greek civilization somewhat tamed the region, after which it became known conversely as the “Hospitable Sea,” and has long been a crucial location lying at the crossroads of ancient civilization. It is also a place of both ancient and modern mysteries, ranging from lost civilizations, to strange phenomena, unexplained disappearances, and bizarre beasts.

So undocumented migrants and refugees, asylum seekers, wait in limbo for a chance to scale the fence and apply for asylum in Europe. It's the first of many, many hurdles. And it's a tall one.

Top 10 Cities of Romania
Thanks for watching..... 1) Brașov 2) Bucharest 3) Cluj-Napoca 4) Constanța 5) Craiova 6) Galați 7) Iași 8) Oradea 9) Ploiești 10) Timișoara Romania is a country located at the intersection of Central and Southeastern Europe, bordering on the Black Sea.[11] Romania shares a border with Hungary and Serbia to the west, Ukraine and Moldova to the northeast and east, and Bulgaria to the south. At 238,391 square kilometres (92,043 sq mi), Romania is the eighth largest country of the European Union by area, and has the seventh largest population of the European Union with 20,121,641 people (20 October 2011). Its capital and largest city is Bucharest -- the sixth largest city in the EU. The United Principalities emerged when the territories of Moldavia and Wallachia were united under Prince Alexander Ioan Cuza in 1859. In 1866 Prince Karl of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen was called to the throne as the Ruling Prince of the Romanian Principate and in 1881 he was finally crowned as King Carol I the first monarch of the Kingdom of Romania. Independence from the Ottoman Empire was declared on 9 May 1877, and was internationally recognised the following year. At the end of World War I, Transylvania, Bukovina and Bessarabia united with the Kingdom of Romania. Following the outbreak of World War II on 1 September 1939, the Kingdom of Romania under King Carol II officially adopted a position of neutrality. In summer 1940, a series of territorial disputes were resolved unfavorably to Romania, resulting in the loss of most of the territory gained in the wake of World War I. This caused the popularity of Romania's government to plummet. World War II gave cause to the rise of a military dictatorship in Romania under far-right Marshal Ion Antonescu, who chose to fight on the side of the Axis powers from 1941 to 1944 in order to regain the provinces. After his removal, Romania switched sides in 1944 and joined the Allies. By the end of the war, some formerly Romanian northeastern territories were occupied by the Soviet Union, with Red Army units stationed on Romanian soil. In 1947 Romania forcibly became a People's Republic (1947--1965) and a member of the Warsaw Pact. In 1965 Nicolae Ceauşescu became General Secretary of the Romanian Workers' Party, and the harsh austerity measures, political repression, and cult of personality he implemented led to the Socialist Republic of Romania (1965--1989) becoming the most Stalinist police state in the Eastern bloc. Eventually his authoritarian government was toppled in December 1989 during the Romanian Revolution. With the fall of the Iron Curtain, Romania began its transition towards democracy and a capitalist market economy. After a decade of post-revolution economic problems and living-standards decline, extensive reforms fostered economic recovery. As of 2010, Romania is an upper-middle income country with a high Human Development Index.[12] Romania joined NATO on 29 March 2004, and the European Union on 1 January 2007. It is also a member of the Latin Union, Francophonie, OSCE, WTO, BSEC, United Nations, etc. Today, Romania is a unitary semi-presidential republic, in which the executive branch consists of the President and the Government.

12 Most Fascinating Man-Made Islands
From Tokyo's Disneyland an incredible tourist attraction to the man-made islands w/ beautiful beaches & resorts perfect to visit Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 6. Ile Aux Cygnes This smalls artificial island is located on the River Seine in Paris and was created in 1827 in order to protect the port of Grenelle. Ile aux cygnes translates to the Island of Swans. It’s uninhabited for the most part except for this replica of Lady Liberty that stands about 70 feet tall, facing the direction of her much larger sister in New York City. It was originally facing the direction of the Eiffel Tower but ... 5. Nanhai Pearl Island This artificial island located off the coast of Holiday beach in China is currently under construction and will be an enormous tourist attraction with hotels, shipyard, cruiseships and a theme park. It currently has one bridge that connects it to the mainland of Hainan China. China has become notorious lately with their construction of artificial islands. They caused some controversy when they began constructing many islands and then militarizing them and turning them into airbase fortresses of the China Sea, which we’ll get into more later. But this one here is supposed to be for touristic purposes. Construction began in April 2016 and consists of a round, crescent shaped body, and somewhat seems like a response to Dubai’s artificial islands. 4. Islands of Uros The Uros people of Peru live very simple lives on floating artificial islands. These islands are actually made of reeds that grow on the edges of Lake Titicaca. These reeds are harvested, bundled tightly and small settlements are built on top of them.The Uros are very mysterious people and legend has it that they have black blood and have seemingly magical tolerance to cold weather. The purpose of the island settlements were originally for defensive purposes and if they came into threats from invading tribes they could simply move their homes on this islands. Each island houses anywhere from 2-10 families depending on the size. Local residents enjoy a variety of different resources that Lake titicaca provides which include, a large variety of fish, birds such as flamingos and even graze cattle on their islands. Simply fascinating. 3. Palm Jumeirah How would you feel about living on an extremely large man made island in the Persian Gulf? Sounds like it could be intriguing. These also belong to the flamboyant United Arab Emirates. But instead of taking the shape of the world, these cluster of islands are shaped like a palm tree and are much utilized than it’s neighboring chain of islands. The palm tree consists of a trunk that acts like a bridge to the mainland with 16 fronds and a surrounding crescent shaped island. This is the home the to luxurious Palm Atlantis Hotel which began construction in 2001. This adds an extra 40 miles to Dubai’s coastline and was built with over 7 million tons of stone. They kept the nearby ecosystem in mind and used natural rock to encourage natural reef creation by the sea life. 2. Thilafushi Maldives The Maldives are known for being an excellent resort country in the middle of the indian ocean. Its beautiful beaches are flocked to by millions of tourists each year. One of its least popular islands, however, isn’t really natural. The thilafushi island is built on top of reclaimed coral reefs in 1992 not to house a 5 star resort, but to house the garbage left by tourists and locals alike. It was built as a landfill and given the nickname garbage island. In 2005, it’s estimated that 31000 truckloads of garbage were transported to this island each year and it continues to grow each year at the rate of 365,000 square feet a day! The BBC even described the waste on the island was apocalyptic. 1.Chinese War Islands In recent years, it’s been China’s goal to beef up their military presence especially in the South China Sea where these islands are located. Their building islands here on international waters at an exponential rate at there seems to be no end in sight. The US navy and rival Asian counterparts dispute these practices as being aggressive and unnecessary. This is part of their plan to build dominance as a commercial and military power and no one wants to tell them to stop. This guarantees that tension in this area will continue to rise especially as Vietnam, Australia and the Philippines don’t appreciate this one bit. Just because it’s called the China Sea, doesn’t make it theirs! It’s a crucial trade route with more than 5 trillion dollars worth of international shipping each year, in which China has no historical ties with. If something isn’t done about these islands soon, it could very well lead to world war 3.

12 Strange Things Found in the Sahara
From the EYE of the Desert, to the most unique glass fragments from nowhere, these are 12 STRANGE Things Found in the Sahara Desert ! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 7. Gerboise Bleue Test Site France became the fourth nuclear powered nation after the USA, USSR and Great Britain. They were eager to test out their destruction device and decided to launch their first test in the Algerian Saharan Desert in 1960’s, with a bomb called the Gerboise bleue, near the Berber county of Reggane. We found the coordinates of the launch testing site and as we took a closer look to try to see the crater google earth, something appears to be cut and pasted of the area where it took place You can still see some of the discoloration of the sand from the original black and white photo that you see here.It you get somewhere close to the testing site by foot, you might come across a sighn like this, warning those who dare venture any further. The huge cloud of sand that was released from the atom bomb apparently spread radioactivity into neighboring countries and even into the south of France. Could the extreme heat from the blast, have created something similar to the Libyan desert glass? 6. Ghadames Located a few hundred miles from mediterranean sea, Ghadames is nicknamed, the pearl of the desert because of its pearl white apartment buildings.It was basically an abandoned city in the Sahara Desert for a long period of time when its source of water dried up. Located in the country of Libya. Ghadames was recently listed as a world heritage site and its origins date back to the 4th millennium BC. After miles and miles of endless desert, people must be thinking they’re seeing a mirage when they come across the revived date orchards. The Romans used it to stor e supplies and helped them secure north africa as part of their empire. Temperatures in this area have reached as high as 131 degrees fahrenheit. New housing was designed around the old city that can put up with the heat and it’s now home to about 10,000 residents. 5. Acacus Mountains This mountain range in the center of the Sahara, forms between the countries of Libya and Algeria. It’s here where you’ll find a large variation of strange dune and rock formations like the Rock arch in Tadrart. This is also where you would find the ancient rock art of the Sahara, or what’s left of it. The paintings depicted giraffes, elephants, ostriches and horses and date back to 12,000 BC. The UNESCO State of Conservation reported a large about of vandalism with sledge hammers that appeared to intentionally inflicted to damage the paintings and many of them were looted. This happened when the country was under a little bit of political chaos. 4. The Saharan Horned Viper By looking at photos, many might come to the conclusion the the Sahara is a lifeless wasteland. But this certainly isn’t the case and it’s home to a unique and somewhat creepy wildlife ecosystem. Possibly the most intimidating looking snake makes itself home in Northern Africa and it has horns coming out of its head, almost like the devil himself. These horns as actually protect their eyes while they’re slithering through the Sahara sands and are very aggressive. This nocturnal, carnivorous creatures feasts on things like rodents, birds and lizards. 3. Desert Breath What could this thing possibly be? A UFO landing site? No it’s actually an art installation in Eastern Egypt. The winds of the Sahara have somewhat eroded the spiral but that’s to be somewhat expected after 10 years. This was created by a group of Greek artists and it covers a space of about 25 acres. Roughly 8000 cubic meters of sand was dug out and there used to be a body of water 98 feet deep in the center but this quickly evaporated. The artists stated that it was meant to represent the infinity of the desert. Today it sort of represents a passage of time. 2. The City of Timbuktu Located on the southern edge of the Sahara in the country of Mali, is where you’ll find the historical city of Timbuktu. It’s used in expressions, describing a really far away place but it does actually exist! Between the 12th and 14 century, this city thrived and was extremely wealthy from trading salt and ivory. This commodity was traded by large caravans of camels and it brought an enormous amount of wealth to the Malian Empire. They constructed immense fortifications around the city with a unique architecture that’s not still commonly seen today. 1.The Eye of the Sahara Hmm ok, i was told there was some kind of eye looking formation somewhere around here on google maps… Where is it? Oh! There it is! American Eye is presenting you the Saharan Eye, which is located in the country or Mauritania! This massive geological structure is in the shape of a nearly perfect circle with a 25 mile diameter! It’s so big, that Nasa used to use it as a reference point when they entered space! There are many theories on how it formed.

Sochi | Black Sea Race Russia | Formula 1 Russian Grand Prix, Winter Olympics 2014
Sochi Sochi (Russian: Cо́чи, ZO-chee) is one of the southernmost Bottas wins for Vettelplaces of Russia and the second-largest city of Krasnodar Krai, with a population of 415,000. Located along the Black Sea coast, it's about 1,600km (995 mi) south of Moscow. 1. Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) 2. Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari) 3. Kimi Räikkönen (Ferrari) 4. Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) 5. Max Verstappen (Red Bull) 6. Felipe Massa (Willams) ÉÉN UUR GELEDENOrientation[edit] Greater Sochi occupies 105km along the Black Sea coastline. Its total area is 3,500km² (2,175 sq mi) - three times larger than Moscow. However, most of the population is spread along the narrow coastline stripe, while the mountain area (1,900km²/1,180mi²) mostly belongs to Sochi National Park and partly to the Caucasian Biosphere Reserve. The city alignment is from north-west to south-east, from the neighboring city of Tuapse right to the Russian border with Abkhazia. Greater Sochi officially includes four administrative districts: Central Sochi District The core of the city and its most developed and populated part. Many of the city attractions, hotels and most shopping centres are located there. During the summer season Central Sochi is usually overcrowded and traffic-jammed. Lazarevskoye District (Ashe, Dagomys, Golovinka, Lazarevskoye, Loo (LO-Oh), Makopse, Solokhaul, Uchdere, Vardane, Volkonka) The largest (1,744 km²/1,084mi²) district and with the longest (65km/40mi) coastline, includes 34 sub-districts, most of them are spread along the sea shore. Lazarevskoe district is less urbanized than others in Greater Sochi. In fact it has many various settlements, often poorly connected with each other and lacking in basic infrastructure. Khosta District (Khosta, Kudepsta, Matsesta) Located to the south-east from Central Sochi, this district contains some major attractions, such as Akhun mountain. Adler District (Adler, Imeretinskaya lowland, Krasnaya Polyana, Vesyoloe.) The city's important transport hub, which includes Sochi International Airport, Adler train terminal (final point for most trains going to Greater Sochi) and the only open border crossing with Abkhazia. The role of Adler is rapidly increasing now because it will host all the Olympic venues for the 2014 Games (the Olympic coastal cluster at Imeretinskaya lowland and the mountain cluster at Krasnaya Polyana). The district currently looks like a single huge construction site (certainly, the works cause traffic problems). By 2014 the look of Imeretinskaya lowland and Krasnaya Polyana will change completely, as well as the local transport infrastructure. The best developed, urbanized and monolithic part of Greater Sochi is the coastline between Dagomys (south-east of Lazarevskoe district) and Imeretinskaya lowland of Adler district.

Untersberg Portals On the German-Austrian border, amid the Berchtesgaden Alps, lies the Untersberg Mountain. It is one of the most mysterious mountains in the world. Legends tell of Roman emperors buried in deep tombs, lost civilizations living in chasms, and strange beasts prowling its forests. Supposedly, who was mesmerized by the occult was obsessed with these mountains. According to yet another legend, he built a house on a neighboring mountain and observed Untersberg through telescopes. Whether he saw anything is unknown. Visitors to the mountain, however, report missing time and waking up on other parts of the mountain. Sometimes, the distances involved are extremely long and could not possibly have been traveled during the stretch of missing time. There are many theories ranging from alien abductions to time warps, to portals to other worlds. Skeptics, though, suggest that the people who experience these things are really ill, dehydrated, or somehow fell asleep as they walked. Austrian writer Stan Wolf claims to have found places on the mountain where his watch ran faster than other places. He also claims he found men living in a cave who told him they were soldiers who hadn’t aged a bit over the decades. Pretty spooky to me! 8. The Creatures of Mt. Nyangani Mt. Nyangani in Zimbabwe has a chilling nickname: the “Swallowing Mountain”. It gained its name because of how often people disappear while climbing it. According to local tradition, Mt. Nyangani is a sacred mountain inhabited by ancestral spirits. It’s also said to be haunted by evil spirits and other supernatural creatures. Locals warn that if travelers come across a colorful snake, a pot with no fire, or a brick of gold, then it’s best to ignore those things and move on. Also, mischievous spirits are said to push people off ledges. Visitors often report feeling dizzy, disoriented, and nauseous. They also report strange sounds, lights, animals that follow them, and trees that twist into human faces and whisper. There are even rumors of streams that turn a blood red. In November 2014, 20-year-old British explorer Thomas Gaisford set out alone to explore the mountain. He intended to reach the summit that day and stay overnight. Later, he claimed a thick fog descended during the climb, which disoriented him. Heavy rain began to pour. He decided to camp where he was and wait for the weather to clear. In the surrounding darkness, various creatures appeared to circle him. This gave credence to warnings from locals, who told him to ignore any strangely behaving animals. Gaisford waited ten hours for the fog to clear. When it did, he left the mountain as fast as he could. Others, however, discount his story and say he was dehydrated and had imagined it all. 7. Snarly Yow Snarly Yow sounds like a Pokemon but it’s actually a mysterious giant black dog sighted on South Mountain in Maryland. Most sightings occur at a places where the old National road cuts across a brook and canyon. Some have compared Snarly Yow to the British “black Shuck”. The difference, though, is that black Shuck is connected tothe imminent of the eyewitness, an association that hasn’t extended to Snarly. Luckily. Also, witnesses claim Snarly’s coat changes from white to black. One witness described Snarly Yow as a headless, white dog dragging a chain. Sightings of this mysterious dog date back to an inn near South Mountain, which was built in 1790. The stories at the time had a common format: travelers passing through would have their horses spooked by a mysterious dog that appeared and then disappeared as soon as the rider was thrown from his horse. His penchant for mischief carried over into modern times. Travelers now report that Snarly leaps out in front of cars. The driver will swerve to avoid the animal and crash. As soon as they get out of the vehicle, Snarly growls and bears its fangs before vanishing. And like a typical dog, the creature enjoys simply chasing cars. It also frightens hikers by planting itself in their path and refusing to move. However, it stops short of actually attacking people, which makes it much nicer than the Dwayyo.

Black Sea
The Black Sea is a sea in Southeastern Europe. It is bounded by Europe, Anatolia and the Caucasus and is ultimately connected to the Atlantic Ocean via the Mediterranean and the Aegean Seas and various straits. The Bosphorus Strait connects it to the Sea of Marmara, and the Strait of the Dardanelles connects that sea to the Aegean Sea region of the Mediterranean. These waters separate eastern Europe and western Asia. The Black Sea is also connected to the Sea of Azov by the Strait of Kerch. The Black Sea has an area of 436,400 km2 (168,500 sq mi) (not including the Sea of Azov), a maximum depth of 2,212 m (7,257 ft), and a volume of 547,000 km3 (131,000 cu mi). The Black Sea forms in an east-west trending elliptical depression which lies between Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine. It is constrained by the Pontic Mountains to the south and by the Caucasus Mountains to the east, and features a wide shelf to the northwest. The longest east-west extent is about 1,175 km (730 mi).

Why Countries Are Landlocked + Canals
Why are some countries landlocked? In the case of Bolivia its because they lost a war with Chile. Ethiopia and Serbia granted independence to the parts of their countries that had a coast. Some countries like uzbekistan, are so far inland that they are doubly landlocked, which means they are both landlocked and completely surrounded by other landlocked countries. When a country is landlocked it can be difficult for them to trade, and they often have to rely on their neighbours. In Europe, the danube river lets many landlocked countries have some access to the black sea. As well, many canals exist which lets small ships travel deep inland, providing some of the benefits of having a coast. Some countries may look landlocked, but when viewed closely you can see they have tiny coasts. You can watch this video I made which explores the weird borders in those situations: https://youtu.be/elybAzSVSHc

Dutch and South African History - ROBERT SEPEHR
Holland is a region and former province on the western coast of the Netherlands... a European country, bordering Germany to the East, and Belgium to the South, With a population numbering over 17 million, blessed with one of the most beautiful capital cities in the world, Amsterdam. The Netherlands is a constitutional monarchy, which was divided into 12 provinces, a number that is no coincidence. https://atlanteangardens.blogspot.com/2018/08/dutch-and-south-african-history-robert.html It grew to become one of the major economic and sea-faring powers in the world during the 17th century, which is known as the Dutch Golden Age, when many colonies were founded, including the Netherlands East Indies (currently called Indonesia) and New Amsterdam, which was later traded with the British and re-named as New York. The Dutch East India Company established its first outpost at Cape Town, South Africa, in 1652. Afrikaans is a West Germanic language spoken in South Africa, Namibia and, to a lesser extent, Botswana and Zimbabwe.

Russian tanks seen arriving in Georgian city of Senaki
True Date Created = 17/08/2008 SHOTLIST 1. Russian tank driving down road that leads to Senaki military base 2. Russian tank putting out white smoke EDITOR'S NOTE: unclear why 3. Various of Russian tanks moving down road 4. Various of Russian soldiers sitting on top of armoured personnel carrier STORYLINE: Russian tanks drove towards Senaki, a city in Georgia with a military base on Sunday, despite Russia's president signing a ceasefire with its neighbour the day before. The tanks were filmed driving down a road leading to the city's Georgian army base. Earlier on Sunday US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Russia's president Dmitry Medvedev had pledged that when Georgia's president signed the cease-fire, Russian forces would begin to withdraw. But that did not happen. Russian troops still effectively control the main artery running through the western half of Georgia because they surround Gori as well as the city of Senaki and the Senaki air base. Both cities are on the main east-west highway that slices through two Georgian mountain ranges. Russia also confirmed on Sunday that it had taken over a major power plant in western Georgia. Georgia, bordering the Black Sea between Turkey and Russia, was ruled by Moscow for most of the two centuries preceding the 1991 breakup of the Soviet Union. Under the leadership of its pro-Western president, Mikhail Saakashvili, Georgia has sought NATO membership and has emerged as a proxy for conflict between an emboldened Russia and the West.

A Real Alien Invasion Is Coming to a Palm Tree Near You | Deep Look
Support Deep Look on Patreon!! https://www.patreon.com/deeplook The South American palm weevil is bursting onto the scene in California. Its arrival could put one of the state’s most cherished botanical icons at risk of oblivion. DEEP LOOK is a ultra-HD (4K) short video series created by KQED San Francisco and presented by PBS Digital Studios. See the unseen at the very edge of our visible world. Get a new perspective on our place in the universe and meet extraordinary new friends. Explore big scientific mysteries by going incredibly small. * NEW VIDEOS EVERY OTHER TUESDAY! * Summer means vacation time, and nothing says, “Welcome to paradise!” quite like a palm tree. Though it’s home to only one native species, California has nonetheless adopted the palm as a quintessential icon. But a new snake in California’s palm tree-lined garden may soon put all that to the test. Dozens of palms in San Diego’s Sweetwater Summit Regional Park, about 10 miles from the Mexican border, are looking more like sad, upside-down umbrellas than the usual bursts of botanical joy. The offender is the South American palm weevil, a recent arrival to the U.S. that’s long been widespread in the tropics. Large, black, shiny, and possessed of an impressive proboscis (nose), the weevil prefers the king of palms, the Canary Island date palm, also known as the “pineapple palm” for the distinctive way it’s typically pruned. A palm tree is basically a gigantic cake-pop, an enormous ball of veggie goodness on a stick. The adult female palm weevil uses her long snout to drill tunnels into that goodness—known to science as the “apical meristem” and to your grocer as the “heart” of the palm—where she lays her eggs. When her larvae hatch, their food is all around them. And they start to eat. If the South American palm weevil consolidates its foothold in California, then the worst might still be to come. While these weevils generally stick to the Canary Island palms, they can harbor a parasitic worm that causes red-ring disease—a fatal infection that can strike almost any palm, including the state’s precious native, the California fan. --- Where do South American Palm Weevils come from? Originally, Brazil and Argentina. They’ve become common wherever there are Canary Island Palm trees, however, which includes Europe, the Mediterranean, the Middle East. --- How do they kill palm trees? Their larvae eat the apical meristem, which is the sweet part of the plant sometimes harvested and sold commercially as the “heart of palm.” --- How do you get rid of them? If the palm weevils infest a tree, it’s very hard to save it, since they live on the inside, where they escape both detection and pesticides. Neighboring palm trees can be sprayed for protection. ---+ Read the entire article on KQED Science: https://ww2.kqed.org/science/2017/06/20/a-real-alien-invasion-is-coming-to-a-palm-tree-near-you ---+ For more information: Visit the UC Riverside Center for invasive Species Research: http://cisr.ucr.edu/invasive_species.html ---+ More Great Deep Look episodes: Decorator Crabs Make High Fashion at Low Tide https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwQcv7TyX04 Everything You Never Wanted to Know About Snail Sex https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOcLaI44TXA ---+ See some great videos and documentaries from the PBS Digital Studios!

Chinese border town thriving on Russian trade
The fact Chinese President Xi Jingping chose Russia as his first foreign visit is no surprise to some. The two countries have been strengthening ties for many years. Tourism's growing, there's talk of increasing energy cooperation, and in 2011 trade volume between the two topped 80 billion dollars, a figure expected to double in a few years. North China's Heihe city is literally at the front line of this cross border trade. Bordering Russia's Far Eastern city of Blagoveshchensk, the fast growing town is building its economy on Beijing's newfound love for Moscow.

Troy, Tevfikiye, Çanakkale Province, Troad, Turkey, Asia
Troy was a city situated in the far northwest of the region known in late Classical antiquity as Asia Minor, now known as Anatolia in modern Turkey, near the southwest mouth of the Dardanelles strait and northwest of Mount Ida. The present-day location is known as Hisarlik. It was the setting of the Trojan War described in the Greek Epic Cycle, in particular in the Iliad, one of the two epic poems attributed to Homer. Metrical evidence from the Iliad and the Odyssey suggests that the name Ἴλιον (Ilion) formerly began with a digamma: Ϝίλιον (Wilion); this is also supported by the Hittite name for what is thought to be the same city, Wilusa. A new capital called Ilium was founded on the site in the reign of the Roman Emperor Augustus. It flourished until the establishment of Constantinople, became a bishopric and declined gradually in the Byzantine era, but is now a Latin Catholic titular see. In 1865, English archaeologist Frank Calvert excavated trial trenches in a field he had bought from a local farmer at Hisarlik, and in 1868, Heinrich Schliemann, a wealthy German businessman and archaeologist, also began excavating in the area after a chance meeting with Calvert in Çanakkale. These excavations revealed several cities built in succession. Schliemann was at first skeptical about the identification of Hisarlik with Troy, but was persuaded by Calvert and took over Calvert's excavations on the eastern half of the Hisarlik site, which was on Calvert's property. Troy VII has been identified with the city called Wilusa by the Hittites, the probable origin of the Greek Ἴλιον, and is generally identified with Homeric Troy. Today, the hill at Hisarlik has given its name to a small village near the ruins, which supports the tourist trade visiting the Troia archaeological site. It lies within the province of Çanakkale, some 30 km south-west of the provincial capital, also called Çanakkale. The nearest village is Tevfikiye. The map here shows the adapted Scamander estuary with Ilium a little way inland across the Homeric plain. Due to Troy's location near the Aegean Sea, the Sea of Marmara, and the Black Sea, it was a central hub for the military and trade. Troy was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1998. The walls of Troy, first erected in the Bronze Age between 3000 and 2600 BC, are its main defense. The remains of the walls have been studied through the aforementioned excavations that shed light onto the historical city itself and the mythological implications as the walls protected the citadel during the Trojan War. The fortifications display the importance of defense to the Trojans and how warfare is a prominent issue for ancient cities. The walls surround the city, lasting for several hundred meters and at the time they were built, they were over 17 feet tall. They were made of limestone with watchtowers and brick ramparts, or elevated mounds that serve as protective barriers. Throughout all of the phases, the walls served as the largest fortification for the city of Troy to protect the Trojans against any enemies. Defense mechanisms like the Walls of Troy shed light onto the larger topic of warfare in ancient times. Warfare was a large issue in not only Ancient Greece, but locations nearby, such as Asia Minor.

13 Best Attractions in Eastern Europe
Top 13 Best Attractions in Eastern Europe according to Lonely Planet 13. Lviv, Ukraine Lviv is in Western Ukraine and used to be the capital of East Galicia. It's the biggest city of the region and a major Ukrainian cultural centre on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Because of its Polish and Austro-Hungarian history, Lviv has a Central European flair in its architecture that makes it one of the most beautiful cities in Eastern Europe. 12. Castles & Mountains of Transylvania, Romania The Romanian region that so ghoulishly inspired Irish writer Bram Stoker to create his Dracula has some seriously spooky castles around. Monumental Bran Castle, south of Braşov, is suitably vampiric, but our favourite haunt has to be the 13th-century Râşnov fortress just down the road. 11. Taking an Overnight Train With the windows down and the scenery racing past, there are few modes of transport more pleasurable than the overnight sleeper train -- the best way to get about in Eastern Europe. 10. Walking Dubrovnik's Old City Walls, Croatia The city of Dubrovnik was built on maritime trade. In the Middle Ages it became the only city-state in the Adriatic to rival Venice. Supported by its wealth and skilled diplomacy, the city achieved a remarkable level of development during the 15th and 16th centuries. 9. Tallinn, Estonia Tallinn is a historic city dating back to medieval times. The first fortress on Toompea was built in 1050 and Tallinn was first recorded on a world map in 1154. In 1219, the city was conquered by Valdemar II of Denmark, but it was soon sold to the Hanseatic League in 1285. The city, known as Reval at the time, prospered as a trading town in the 14th century, and much of Tallinn's historic centre was built at this time. 8. Black Sea Beaches, Bulgaria The Bulgarian seaside has one of the best beaches in Europe. With settlements ranging from small calm villages, through luxurious five-star resorts, to modern urban cities, the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast can satisfy any taste and during the days of the hot Bulgarian summer. Most of the towns and villages along the coastline can be traced back to Ancient Greece. 7. Bay of Kotor, Montenegro Kotor is situated in a most secluded part of Boka Kotorska bay, in the northern part of the Montenegro coast. It has developed around Stari Grad, the city's old town and best known landmark, which is listed with UNESCO World heritage sites. The bay is the deepest natural fjord in the Mediterranean Sea, and the scenery around it is spectacular. 6. Budapest, Hungary Budapest is the capital city of Hungary. With a unique, youthful atmosphere, world-class classical music scene as well as a pulsating nightlife increasingly appreciated among European youth, and last but not least, an exceptional offer of natural thermal baths, Budapest is one of Europe's most delightful and enjoyable cities. 5. Kraków, Poland The city of Kraków is in the lowland of the Lesser Poland region in the southern region of Poland. It is the capital city of the Lesser Poland Voivodship. It covers both banks of the Wisla river. Uplands region at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains. It is Poland's second largest city, with a population of 756,000. 4. Hiking the High Tatras, Slovakia High Tatras stretch in the northern part of Slovakia bordering Poland and belong to Carpathian mountain range. High Tatras are divided into three parts Western, High and Belianske Tatras. 3. Moscow's Red Square, Russia Red Square is a city square in Moscow, Russia. The square separates the Kremlin, the former royal citadel and currently the official residence of the President of Russia, from a historic merchant quarter known as Kitai-gorod. 2. Prague, Czech Republic Prague s not only one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, but also the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic. The city's historic buildings and narrow, winding streets are testament to its centuries-old role as capital of the historic region of Bohemia. 1. Saint Petersburg, Russia Saint Petersburg, founded in 1703, it is not ancient, but its historical cityscape is remarkably well-preserved. The center of Saint Petersburg occupies numerous islands of the Neva River delta, divided by waterways and connected by huge drawbridges.

In the center of Madrid, in the Plaza de Castilla, there are 4 skyscrapers with heights between 236 and 250 meters. The Spain City capital, excluding the modern suburbs, is roughly the shape of an elongated quadrilateral in the north-south direction. The modern development of the city begins in the 18th century, under the Bourboni, which undertook the capital's construction and the construction of the Royal Palace. Today, the city stretches westwards beyond the Manzanares River (crossed by 11 bridges, the major being Puente de Toledo and Puente de Segovia), along the Paseo de Extremadura and Calle de Toledo roads, and the new Ciudad Lineal neighborhoods, mostly made of villas and lots of green spaces. The Spanish metropolis is distinguished by a large number of parks, large boulevards, monuments and fountains.

TURKEY: Hiking The Lycian way
In ancient times, a mining area located in the South-West of Asia Minor, in the region of the Teke Peninsula, was called Lycia. On the West it bordered with Karya, on the North with Phrygia and Pisidia, on the East with Pamphylia and washed by the Mediterranean sea on the South. The coastline is strongly indented in Lycia. There are many bays, islets and sheltered coves. And internal areas are occupied by fertile valleys separated by spurs of the Taurus range. At the end of the XX century, an Englishwoman named Kate Clow, paved the Lycian tourist route. It became one of the most popular trail in the world. Disparate roads, trails and goat paths are connected in a single path, with a total length of 509 kilometers. The trail is marked with red and white marks. In some places, they are more common and in others, less common. And sometimes completely lost or hidden in dense vegetation. There are numerous signs along the trail. They show the direction to the nearest historical attractions or large settlements. You can go on the path without a guide. Of course, you may end up strayed. Mutual assistance between tourists helps them to find their way. The most difficult area to for orientation are the fields lined with pyramids of stones. They are called the ducks. The Lycian trail streches along the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, from Fethiye to Antalya. The path goes through forests and mountains, agricultural areas, ancient ruins, villages and abandoned villages. The route is made so that it can be walked with ease. It is never more than one day's walk, from one rest area to the next. On the way, you can easily find restaurants, snack bars and grocery shops. With the alternative of travelling with a tent, cooking over a campfire and sleeping under the stars. There are no organized campsites in Turkey. A tent can be placed anywhere without any restrictions. It's easy to find drinkable water and wood for the fire. There are also springs, rivers, lakes and wells. You can easily ask for water in any home. The Turks are a very hospitable people. Especially to foreigners. Local residents not only willingly undertake to fulfill traveler's requests, they also invite them for tea, food and shelter. The trail can be walked at any time of the year. But the ideal season remain Spring or Autumn. As Summers are too hot and Winters too wet. The most popular season on the trail — May holidays. The Lycian trail begins on the outskirts of Fethiye. From Oludeniz, she abruptly goes into the mountains. The path reaches the sea for the first time, in the area of Kabak, on a small pebble beach. The water is still cold and swimming is unattractive. But it is already quite comfortable to sleep in the tent. It is not cold. The Lycians founded their cities in the most convenient places. Most often on the top of a mountain or on the river bank. On a hill at the mouth of the Xanthos river in the Mediterranean sea, there was, in ancient times, a port city called Pindi. There were 23 major cities in Lycia. One of the most important was Xanthos. It was founded by settlers from Crete in the VIII century BC. The City was the capital of the Lycian Union. And later became a part of the Roman Empire. Only fragments remain from the high walls. The port city of Patara was founded in the VI century BC. It was one of the largest cities in the Lycian Union. Here lived the Roman Emperor Hadrian. And on the way to Rome stayed in St. Paul. The holiday village of Kalkan has replaced the Greek village of Kalamaki. Now this village, is popular amongst those who prefer a quiet and relaxing holiday by the sea. On the shore, at the foot of the cliff under Felos, was in ancient times, the port of Antiphellos. It is briefly mentioned in Homer's "Illiad". The inhabitants of this city fought on the side of the Trojans. The ancient city of Myra was in the Lycian Union. The amphitheatre was designed for 30 thousand seats. We can see many rows of seats of the audience, the scene and arches covered galleries, still perfectly preserved. Roman Emperor Julius Caesar and the Apostle Paul were visiting here. At the beginning of the IV century, the local Bishop was Nicholas, from Patara. He performed many miracles and was canonized. The trail goes along the slopes protected the Göynük canyon.

Top 10 Cities of Israel
Thanks for watching............. 1) Bethlehem 2) Eilat 3) Haifa 4) Jerusalem 5) Nablus 6) Nazareth 7) Netanya 8) Safed 9) Tel Aviv 10) Tiberias Israel /ˈɪzreɪəl/, officially the State of Israel (Hebrew: מְדִינַת יִשְׂרָאֵל‎, Medīnat Yisrā'el, IPA: [mediˈnat jisʁaˈʔel] ( listen); Arabic: دولة إِسرائيل‎, Dawlat Isrāʼīl, IPA: [dawlat ʔisraːˈʔiːl]), is a country in Western Asia, on the south-eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It shares land borders with Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan and Palestine in the east, Egypt and the Gaza Strip on the southwest, and the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea to the south, and it contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area.[6][7] In its Basic Laws Israel defines itself as a Jewish and Democratic State; it is the world's only Jewish-majority state.[8] On 29 November 1947, the United Nations General Assembly recommended the adoption and implementation of the partition plan of Mandatory Palestine. On 14 May 1948, David Ben-Gurion, the Executive Head of the World Zionist Organization[9] and president of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, declared "the establishment of a Jewish state in Eretz Israel, to be known as the State of Israel," a state independent upon the termination of the British Mandate for Palestine, 15 May 1948.[10][11][12] Neighboring Arab armies invaded Palestine on the next day and fought the Israeli forces.[13] Israel has since fought several wars with neighboring Arab states,[14] in the course of which it has occupied the West Bank, Sinai Peninsula (between 1967 and 1982), part of South Lebanon (between 1982 and 2000), Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights. It annexed portions of these territories, including East Jerusalem, but the border with the West Bank is disputed.[15][16][17][18][19] Israel has signed peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan, but efforts to resolve the Israeli--Palestinian conflict have so far not resulted in peace. Israel's financial center is Tel Aviv,[20] while Jerusalem (if East Jerusalem is included) is the country's most populous city and its designated capital.[a][21] The population of Israel, as defined by the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics, was estimated in 2013 to be 8,051,200 people, of whom 6,045,900 are Jewish. Arabs form the country's second-largest group with 1,663,400 people (including the Druze).[22][1] The great majority of Israeli Arabs are settled-Muslims, with smaller but significant numbers of semi-settled Negev Bedouins; the rest are Christians and Druze. Other minorities include various ethnic and ethno-religious denominations such as Russians, Maronites, Samaritans, Black Hebrew Israelites,[23] Armenians, Circassians and others. Israel also hosts a significant population of non-citizen foreign workers and asylum seekers estimated at about 300 thousand. Israel is a representative democracy with a parliamentary system, proportional representation and universal suffrage.[24][25] The Prime Minister serves as head of government and the Knesset serves as Israel's unicameral legislative body. Israel has one of the highest life expectancies in the world.[26] It is a developed country, an OECD member,[27] and its economy, based on the nominal gross domestic product, was the 43rd-largest in the world in 2012. Israel has the highest standard of living in the Middle East and the third highest in Asia. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel

(PART 2: EUROPE) Asia is the largest and most populous continent in the world. From the physical extremes to the cultural, it's a continent that has shown tremendous diversity from one end to the other. But what exactly counts as Asia? Where are the Asian borders? This video is part two of a three part series. In part one, we covered the specific Asian borders following the coastal regions from the Tumen River between North Korea & Russia to the Suez Canal in Egypt. In between, we went over Japan's Bonin (Ogasawara) Islands, the Malay Archipelago, Indonesia's border with Papua New Guinea, the Wallace Line, the Weber Line, Asian continental shelf, the Middle East, Yemen's Socotra Archipelago, Afro-Eurasia and Egypt's border. In part two, we cover the most controversial Asian border section of Europe starting from Egypt, through Lebanon, Syria, Cyprus, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Russia. We end on the eastern side of Russia (Siberia) bordering North America, which is where part three will commence. Many feel Asian and Europe shouldn't have been separate continents to start with, as there isn't a clear physical geographical divide between the two. In fact, a few countries teach the continent of Eurasia as a result. This made this video particularly challenging as nothing is definitive and is all open to interpretation.

Eritrea - Welcome To Eritrea, Africa's Hidden Gem ©
http://www.madote.com/ Did you know that more tourist (410,000 of them) visit Eritrea each year than all of Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia and djibouti combined?? (SOURCE: http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/eco_tou_arr-economy-tourist-arrivals ). Eritrea's Wildlife habitats: Eritrea is home to a RARE mix of inter-bred Indian and African elephants that mixed when the British invaded modern day Eritrea in 1878 with thousands of Indian elephants on a rescue mission of British hostages.(SOURCE: http://www.mcp.com.au/sinus/newsletters/newsletter-11/newsletter-11.html ) In addition to having a rare breed of Elephants, Eritrea is home to lions, greater kudu and Tora hartebeest, vervet monkey, olive baboon, pale or sand fox, common jackal, black-backed jackal, bat-eared fox, genet, African wild cat, warthog, Soemmering's gazelle, Abyssinian hare and ground squirrel in Gash-Setit Area (Gash Barka Zone); Soemmering's gazelle, baboons, dik-dik, Dorcas gazelle, wild ass, ostrich and other small mammals in Buri Peninsula & the Gheralo-Tio-Badda Triangle; Leopard, bush buck, klipspringer, greater kudu, duiker and warthog in Semenawi & Debubawi Bahri ('Green Belt'); Gazelle in Dissei and Dahlak Kebir, oryx, dugong and green turtle Coastal & Marine Area. Eritrea's Capital city of Asmara: Asmara, the capital of Eritrea, bordering the Red Sea, is referred by many expert travelers as the beautifulest city in Africa and is also home to one of the most important and exciting architectural 'discoveries' of recent years. Built almost entirely in the 1930s and early 40's by Italian and Eritrean workers, Asmara has one of the highest concentrations of modernist architecture anywhere in the world, and has evocatively been described as "the Miami of Africa." Desperate to build quickly, the colonial government of the time allowed radical architectural experimentation that would not have found favour in the more conservative European environment. Asmara therefore became one of the world's prime locations for architectural innovation during the Modern Movement. That this occurred at all is remarkable enough, but that these buildings should have survived in such numbers today makes it one of the finest modernist cities in the World. Eritrea's unique natural features: i. Danakil Depression, 100 metres below sea level with temperatures over 50° Centigrade. ii.The Great Valley Rift, runs through Eritrea. iii.Hot Springs in many locations such as Akwaar, Mai Wui, Gahtelai and Arafayle. iv.The Escarpment providing spectacular views from the highland plateau to the coastal plains. v. Dahlak Archipelago off the Red Sea coast with over 350 islands and unexplored undersea wonders. Eritrea's Marine life: Coral: Healthy coral reefs around 350 islands off the Red Sea coast including the Dahlak Archipelago. Flat reef gardens and cliffs that slope down to the depths of the ocean floor. Varieties ranging from large mounds of brain coral (Porites) to branching Acropora; Varieties of fish: Angelfish - blue and yellow Arabian, the yellowbar and the striped emperor. Butterfly fish - the orangeface, and the brilliant yellow-masked variety with a black face patch, the endemic bannerfish with its elongated dorsal fin. Wrass - brilliant blue-green, blue-striped and other colourful varieties. Parrotfish, groupers, damselfish, animonefish, dascyllus, scissortail sergeant, blue and orange sunrise dotty back, small pipefish, red squirrelfish and cube-like box fish. Larger fish - jacks, snappers, emperors, sweetlips and barracudas. Varieties of crabs under small coral, black, white or red sea cucumbers and snails on the sandy floor beside jellyfish are common.

Bridge on River Rhine in Konstanz (Constance) Germany
RHINE RIVER - Introductory Facts The Rhine River , whose name comes from the Celtic word renos, meaning raging flow, begins at the Rheinwaldhorn Glacier in the Swiss Alps and flows north and east approximately 820 miles (1,320 km). The glacier is located northeast across the mountains from the town of Andermatt in the Uri canton (state/province). The Rhine begins as a tumultuous Alpine stream churning through deep gorges, and although the river's flow is moderated somewhat as it passes through the Lake of Constance (Bodensee), the river remains a torrent westward to Basel. Just south of Chur, Switzerland, the Hinter Rhine, flowing northwesternly from the glacier, joins the Voder Rhine streaming from Lake Tuma, to form the Rhine proper at Reichenau. The river then flows north to Lake Constance and west through Schaffhausen to Basel, Switzerland. Near Schaffhausen it plunges 23 m (75 ft) over a spectacular waterfall, the Rheinfall. At Basel the river turns north and enters the Rhine Graben, a flat-floored rift valley lying between the Vosges Mountains on the west and the Black Forest (Schwarzwald) on the east. Strasbourg, France, a focal point for merging water routes from the Paris Basin, is located at the valley's northern extremity. With the junction of the Main River at Mainz, in Germany, the Rhine's seasonal regime becomes more stabilized. Along its course from Bingen to Bonn is a beautiful stretch of the Rhine Valley. The river has cut the deep, steepsided Rhine Gorge through the Rhineland Plateau and the Rhenish Slate Mountains. This picturesque gorge, with terraced vineyards and castle-lined cliffs, has often been called the "heroic Rhine," renowned in history and romantic literature. It is complete with fairy tale castles and vineyards snuggled in the overhanging rock face, known as the Mittelrhein. The river flows past Bonn, Germany and becomes the Lower Rhine and emerges onto the North German Plain before it empties into the North Sea. Leading cities on the stream's banks are Cologne, Düsseldorf, and Duisburg. At the Netherlands frontier, it divides into two parallel distributaries, the Lek and the Waal, as it crosses a wide, marshy plain and a great delta before entering the North Sea. Much of this area is at or below sea level, but diking contributed to its becoming one of the most densely populated and important economic regions on the continent. Rotterdam, the leading port of continental Europe, is located near the river's mouth. It passes through or borders on the countries of Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, France, and the Netherlands. It is navigable from the North Sea to Basel, Switzerland, a distance of some 500 miles (some 800 km). Eighty percent of it's ship-carrying waters pass through Germany. The entire distance can not support ocean going vessels and they must end their journey in Cologne, Germany. Cologne is located between Koln and Bonn. From there cargo must go by barges pushed by smaller ships until the Rhine reaches the three point intersection of the borders of France, Germany, and Basel, Switzerland. Because of the multi countries and languages, the river has four names. They are: Rhein, Germany; Rhine, France; and Rijn, Netherlands (Dutch); Rhenus, ancient. There are many other important tributaries that flow into the Rhine. In fact, the Rhine splits into two tributaries near Emmerich, Germany and Zevenaar, Netherlands. Those are the Lek on the north and the Waal on the south. Some of the main tributaries are: the Mosselle (Mosel), that runs south west bordering Luxembourg and on into France; the Neckar that flows south east at Manneheim on through Heidelburg, Germany; the Main, flowing east and south from Mainz through Frankfurt, Germany. The principal rivers of Western Europe, including the Seine, Elbe, Ems, Rhône, and Saône, are linked to it by canals. East of Frankfurt is where The Rhine-Main-Danube Canal links the Rhine with the Danube River, providing a transcontinental route from the North Sea to the Black Sea near Odessa, Ukraine. Historical Data During early historic times, Germanic tribes settled on either side of the lower Rhine and Celts alongside its upper sides. Julius Caesar bridged and crossed it in 53 and 55 BC. The Germanias were formed on the north and the Roman empire to the south and east. When the Western Roman Empire disintegrated around 400 AD, the Rhine was crossed along its entire length by Germanic tribes and formed the central backbone first of the Kingdom of the Franks and then of the Carolingian Empire. In 870, the Rhine again became the central axis of a political unit; the Holy Roman Empire. Over time, fighting and political events disintegrated this empire along the Rhine. Even with the fighting and changing hands of frontiers, a goal to connect the North Sea to the Black Sea had existed. It was first put into action by Charlemagne in 793, but it was never a success.
Visit Romania (home of Dracula)
Visit Romania (home of Dracula) Romania (Listeni/roʊˈmeɪniə/ roh-MAY-nee-ə; dated spellings Roumania[8] and Rumania;[9][10] Romanian: România [romɨˈni.a] ( listen)) is a country located in Southeastern Europe, bordering the Black Sea.[11] Romania shares a border with Hungary and Serbia to the west, Ukraine and Moldova to the northeast and east, and Bulgaria to the south. At 238,391 square kilometres (92,043 sq mi), Romania is the eighth largest country of the European Union by area, and has the seventh largest population of the European Union with 20,121,641 people (20 October 2011). Its capital and largest city is Bucharest -- the sixth largest city in the EU. The United Principalities emerged when the territories of Moldavia and Wallachia were united under Prince Alexander Ioan Cuza in 1859. In 1866 Prince Karl of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen was called to the throne as the Ruling Prince of the Romanian Principate and in 1881 he was finally crowned as King Carol I, the first monarch of the Kingdom of Romania. Independence from the Ottoman Empire was declared on 9 May 1877, and was internationally recognised the following year. At the end of World War I, Transylvania, Bukovina and Bessarabia united with the Kingdom of Romania. Following the outbreak of World War II on 1 September 1939, the Kingdom of Romania under King Carol II officially adopted a position of neutrality. In summer 1940, a series of territorial disputes were resolved unfavorably to Romania, resulting in the loss of most of the territory gained in the wake of World War I. This caused the popularity of Romania's government to plummet. World War II gave cause to the rise of a military dictatorship in Romania under far-right Marshal Ion Antonescu, who chose to fight on the side of the Axis powers from 1941 to 1944 in order to regain the provinces. After his removal, Romania switched sides in 1944 and joined the Allies. By the end of the war, some formerly Romanian northeastern territories were occupied by the Soviet Union, with Red Army units stationed on Romanian soil. In 1947 Romania forcibly became a People's Republic (1947--1965) and a member of the Warsaw Pact. In 1965 Nicolae Ceauşescu became General Secretary of the Romanian Workers' Party, and the harsh austerity measures, political repression, and cult of personality he implemented led to the Socialist Republic of Romania (1965--1989) becoming the most Stalinist police state in the Eastern bloc. Eventually his authoritarian government was toppled in December 1989 during the Romanian Revolution. With the fall of the Iron Curtain, Romania began its transition towards democracy and a capitalist market economy. After a decade of post-revolution economic problems and living-standards decline, extensive reforms fostered economic recovery. As of 2010, Romania is an upper-middle income country with a high Human Development Index.[12] Romania joined NATO on 29 March 2004, and the European Union on 1 January 2007. It is also a member of the Latin Union, Francophonie, OSCE, WTO, BSEC, United Nations, etc. Today, Romania is a unitary semi-presidential republic, in which the executive branch consists of the President and the Government.[13]

Antalya, Turkey - virtual tour
Antalya is the eighth most populous city in Turkey and the capital of its eponymous province. Located on Anatolia's flourishing southwest coast bordered by the Taurus Mountains, Antalya is the largest Turkish city on the Mediterranean coast with over one million people in its metropolitan area. The city that is now Antalya was first settled around 200 BC by the Attalid dynasty of Pergamon, which was soon subdued by the Romans. Roman rule saw Antalya thrive, including the construction of several new monuments, such as Hadrian's Gate, and the proliferation of neighboring cities. The city has changed hands several times, including to the Byzantine Empire in 1207 and an expanding Ottoman Empire in 1391. Ottoman rule brought relative peace and stability for the next five-hundred years. The city was transferred to Italian suzerainty in the aftermath of World War I, but was recaptured by a newly independent Turkey in the War of Independence. Antalya is Turkey's biggest international sea resort, located on the Turkish Riviera. Large-scale development and governmental funding has promoted tourism. A record 12.5 million tourists passed through the city in 2014. Despite having architectural heritage dating back up to Hellenistic times, most historical architecture in Antalya date to the medieval Ottoman period, with a number of mosques, madrasahs, masjids, caravanserais, Turkish baths and tombs giving the city a Turkish-Islamic character. Historical architecture is concentrated in the walled city, Kaleiçi; ancient structures are not well-preserved in the rest of the city of Antalya as the modern city was built on the ancient city. Kaleiçi, with its narrow cobbled streets of historic Ottoman era houses, is the old center of Antalya. The historical harbour is located in this part of the city; narrow streets extend from the harbour and branch off into the old city, surrounded by wooden historical houses. There are sites with traces of Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, and Seljuk architecture and cultures. There are also examples of the local Greek architecture in the city, with five Greek Orthodox churches in the old city. Antalya has beaches including Konyaaltı, Lara and Karpuzkaldıran.

Birthed Out
According to Manetho (Fragm. In Fragmenta Historicorum Graecorum II. 527), the first king who had reigned over the valley of the Nile, predating even Ouranos, was Hephaistos (Vulcan), as the god of fire, of sun and of light. In its temple, in Memphis, the god was associated with a pygmy (Herodotus, III. 37). In Homeric times, a colony of dwarves existed south of the mouth of the Danube, near the Black Sea (Pliny, IV.18. 6; Homer, Iliad III. 6). Diodorus of Sicily mentions (I. 26) also the rule of the Sun (Helios = Ouranos = Uranus) as the first deified king, along with Saturn (Cronos), who had ruled over the plains of the Nile. Moreover, he was considered the first king ruling over the regions near the Atlas mountain, north of the Istru. The Atlantes (or inhabitants near the Atlas mountain, near the Oceanos Potamos), according to Diodorus (III. 56; VI. 2.7), excel among all the neighboring peoples for their particular piety and hospitality. In ancient Greek etymology Ouranos, as a personal name, derives from oros with the Ionic suffix -anos, meaning ‘man from the mountain’. His wife Gaea also had the epithet orestera. According to Herodotus (IV. 49), Atlas was the name of a significant river, which flew from the heights of old Aimos (Carpathians) and into the Lower Istru (von Gooss, 1974, p.10; Dio Cassius, LXVII. 6). Importantly, Ouranos, was considered to be the first king of the Pelasgian race, appearing also under the name Pelasgos (they are six proposed etymologies for this name: 1. πάλαι +γέγαα = becoming old 2. Πέληον Άργος = old man 3. πελαργός = voyager & the bird "stork" 4. περάω = travel at sea = the sea mariner, 5. πλάζω = roam the sea 6. πέλας =πλησίον+άγω = leader of the neighboring people). The size of his body, his strength and beauty surpassed that of all the other mortals, together with the gifts of his soul. He was the first to teach humans to build huts, to make clothes and he forbade them to continue eating green leaves, weeds and roots, some of which were inedible, and others dangerous to their health, allowing them only the use of the acorn of the oak for eating (Pausanias, VIII. 1). According to Aeschylus (Suppliant Women, 842-901), Pelasgos was the son of Gaea. According to the grammarian Apollodorus (III.8.1), Pelasgos was the forefather of the Titans. Other ancient authors (Scholiast of Pindar, Olympian III. 28 in Fragmenta Historicorum Graecorum II. 387) mention that Pelasgos was the first ancestor of the Hyperboreans, near the Atlas Mountain (Apollodorus, II. 5.11). \m/ According to Diodorus (I.III. 56), Ouranos’ reign extended especially over the western and northern parts of the ancient world. Especially at Dodona (Epirus, Greece), one of the sacred Pelasgian cities, Ouranos was also venerated under the name Zeus anaxi Pelasgichos (Jupiter Imperator Pelasgus). In Homer’s Iliad (XVI. 232), Achilles invokes him under this name. He was the “Lord over the mountains of Dodona” (Aeschylus, Suppliant Women 327-258). According to the ancient traditions, the reign of Ouranos (Pelasgos) and its pastoral tribes had extended from Northern Europe to Southern areas, and beyond the Mediterranean, to the plains of the Nile. It is worth mentioning that the Pelasgians had been the only people of the ancient world to which was attributed a divine origin (Homer, Iliad X.429; Odyssey xix.177: dioi Pelasgoi), probably due to their extraordinary intelligence, their moral and physical qualities, and their amazing deeds and works.

Driving Over Mackinac Bridge, MI
Driving I75 (Interstate 75) Over Mackinac Bridge, MI In Route To St. Ignace, Michigan Mackinac City is on right as we approach the bridge. Mackinaw City /ˈmækᵻnɔː ˈsɪti/ is a village in Emmet and Cheboygan counties in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 806 at the 2010 census; the population surges during the summer tourist season, including an influx of tourists and seasonal workers who serve in the shops, hotels and other recreational facilities there and in the surrounding region. Mackinaw City is at the northern tip (headland) of the Michigan's Lower Peninsula along the southern shore of the Straits of Mackinac. Across the straits lies the state's Upper Peninsula. These two land masses are physically connected by the Mackinac Bridge, which runs from Mackinaw City north to St. Ignace. Mackinaw City is also the primary base for ferry service to Mackinac Island, located to the northeast in the straits. According to AAA's 2009 TripTik requests, Mackinaw City is the most popular tourist city in the state of Michigan. Local attractions include Fort Michilimackinac, the Mackinac Bridge, the Mackinaw Crossings shopping mall, Mill Creek, the Old Mackinac Point Light, the Historic Village, the McGulpin Point Light, and the retired US Coast Guard Icebreaker Mackinaw. The official name of the community is "The Village of Mackinaw City" and as that suggests, it is a village by state law. Mackinaw City is governed by the General Law Village Act, Public Act No. 3, of 1895, as amended. The downtown district and much of the development lie within Mackinaw Township, Cheboygan County, but the larger portion of the village by area is in Wawatam Township, Emmet County, which borders Mackinaw Township to the west. More Info Here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mackinaw_City,_Michigan The Mackinac Bridge (/ˈmækᵻnɔː/ MAK-in-aw) is a suspension bridge spanning the Straits of Mackinac to connect the Upper and Lower peninsula of the U.S. state of Michigan. Opened in 1957, the 26,372-foot (8.038 km) bridge (familiarly known as "Big Mac" and "Mighty Mac") is the world's 17th-longest main span and the longest suspension bridge between anchorages in the Western hemisphere. The Mackinac Bridge is part of Interstate 75 and the Lakes Michigan and Huron components of the Great Lakes Circle Tours across the straits; it is also a segment of the U.S. North Country National Scenic Trail. The bridge connects the city of St. Ignace on the north end with the village of Mackinaw City on the south. Envisioned since the 1880s, the bridge was designed by the engineer David B. Steinman and completed in 1957 only after many decades of struggles to begin construction The bridge opened on November 1, 1957,[4] connecting two peninsulas linked for decades by ferries. A year later, the bridge was formally dedicated as the "world's longest suspension bridge between anchorages", allowing a superlative comparison to the Golden Gate Bridge, which had a longer center span between towers, and the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge, which had an anchorage in the middle. It remains the longest suspension bridge with two towers between anchorages in the Western Hemisphere.[3] Much longer anchorage-to-anchorage spans have been built in the Eastern Hemisphere, including the Akashi Kaikyō Bridge in Japan (12,826 ft or 3,909 m). But the long leadups to the anchorages on the Mackinac make its total shoreline-to-shoreline length of 5 miles (8 km) longer than the Akashi-Kaikyo (2.4 mi or 3.9 km). The length of the bridge's main span is 3,800 feet (1,158 m), which makes it the third-longest suspension span in the United States and 17th longest suspension span worldwide. It is also one of the world's longest bridges overall. More Info Here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mackinac_Bridge Saint Ignace, usually written as St. Ignace, is a city at the southern tip of the Upper Peninsula of the U.S. state of Michigan, bordering the Straits of Mackinac. The population was 2,452 at the 2010 census. It is the county seat of Mackinac County.[6] For travelers coming from the Lower Peninsula, St. Ignace is the gateway to the northern part of the state. St. Ignace Township is located just to the north of the city, but is politically independent. Located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, St. Ignace is at the northern end of the Mackinac Bridge and Mackinaw City is the southern end. One-third of the population of the city identified as Native American. The Mackinac Bands of Chippewa and Ottawa Indians, a state recognized tribe, is headquartered at St. Ignace, and has bands in several other counties in the region. In addition, the large federally recognized Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians owns and operates a casino on its land in St. Ignace, as well as in four other cities in northern Michigan.

The Turkish Climate
The coastal areas of Turkey bordering the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas have a temperate Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild to cool, wet winters. The coastal areas bordering the Black Sea have a temperate Oceanic climate with warm, wet summers and cool to cold, wet winters. The Turkish Black Sea coast receives the greatest amount of precipitation and is the only region of Turkey that receives high precipitation throughout the year. The eastern part of that coast averages 2,200 millimetres (87 in) annually which is the highest precipitation in the country. The coastal areas bordering the Sea of Marmara, which connects the Aegean Sea and the Black Sea, have a transitional climate between a temperate Mediterranean climate and a temperate Oceanic climate with warm to hot, moderately dry summers and cool to cold, wet winters. Snow falls on the coastal areas of the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea almost every winter, but usually melts in no more than a few days. However snow is rare in the coastal areas of the Aegean Sea and very rare in the coastal areas of the Mediterranean Sea. Mountains close to the coast prevent Mediterranean influences from extending inland, giving the central Anatolian plateau of the interior of Turkey a continental climate with sharply contrasting seasons. Winters on the eastern part of the plateau are especially severe. Temperatures of −30 to −40 °C (−22 to −40 °F) can occur in eastern Anatolia. Snow may remain at least 120 days of the year. In the west, winter temperatures average below 1 °C (34 °F). Summers are hot and dry, with temperatures often above 30 °C (86 °F) in the day. Annual precipitation averages about 400 millimetres (15 in), with actual amounts determined by elevation. The driest regions are the Konya plain and the Malatya plain, where annual rainfall is often less than 300 millimetres (12 in). May is generally the wettest month, whereas July and August are the driest.
