Exploring Morocco (2)

A “blue town” in Rabat! The navy blue and snowy white worked perfectly together and created a breathtaking scenery. With little influence from the outside world, this town has kept medieval styles and traditions in some ways. The meandering lanes leads me toward tranquility, allowing me to escape from the noises and crowds in the city.Continue reading “Exploring Morocco (2)”

Exploring Morocco (1)

Morocco is a relatively conservative country in the Muslin world. When we were sauntering on the streets at night, we surprisingly found that only men were enjoying a cup of tea and chatting with each other in the square. We felt hundreds of eyes staring at us as we passed by, and it just madeContinue reading “Exploring Morocco (1)”

My Trip to Turkey (7)

A real show of world diversity — dresses from around the world! It is not about having silky skin or attractive figure; the happiness I see in these people has already taken over me!   The world is losing its diversity… wherever I go, I feel like all the countries and the people of thoseContinue reading “My Trip to Turkey (7)”

My Trip to Turkey (6)

The best carpet shop in Turkey! Turkish carpets are better than Chinese and Indian ones in several ways: they use double thread to make it tighter, and the pigments are more ecological (made from plants and insects). Reasonable price, wonderful quality, and exquisite designs. The price ranges from 1,000 to 1,0000 Yuan! (high-end products indeed!)Continue reading “My Trip to Turkey (6)”

The most well-known painting in Turkey. Guess what’s the guy doing? He was a slave and was made to train the tortoise as a punishment! lol     Can you tell the differences between Mosque, Catholic church and Orthodox church? Well, the most typical feature of mosque is the hammer-vault roofing, while on the topContinue reading “My Trip to Turkey (5)”

My Trip to Turkey (4)

Accompanied by a Catholic Mexican and a Muslin tour guide when visiting the mosque. Just learned that the Muslin also believes Jesus is the Messiah, who was crucified but rose again. But to the Muslin, Jesus is just a prophet. So mysterious is the God to us, but I know that he does exist!  Continue reading “My Trip to Turkey (4)”

My Trip to Turkey (3)

When we were at the table, a westerner noticed us, a group of Asians sitting together, so she came over and said hi in Japanese. We told her that we were from China, and she apologized, saying that she couldn’t really tell the difference between Chinese, Korean and Japanese people by just looking at them. “That’sContinue reading “My Trip to Turkey (3)”

The lady in blue is originally Yugoslavian, but migrated to Sweden in her early years. She was born on 3rd September, 1939, the beginning of WWII. A baby born in the gunfire! When she was 3, her parents were sent into jail for being reported as communists, so she and her sister were sent toContinue reading “My Trip to Turkey (2)”

My Trip to Turkey (1)

Arrived in Turkey on 16th August! I feel so grateful for His grace. Both traditional and modern features can be found on the streets in Turkey. BTW, even CCTV4 can be found on local television! Surprising things at the International Conference of University Women: most attendees were in their 60s to 80s, and young womenContinue reading “My Trip to Turkey (1)”
