IMG_9572

Ramazan is a humble farmer in some little village near western coast of Turkey. He considers himself as an Aegean. He has a son named Ahmet. His hair is same color as coal. Curly. Eyes are chestnut color. His wife is now pregnant. She is from same village as him. Looks like they are going to have twins. Ahmet is very nasty, so sometimes his mother was beating him. Ramazan is quite macho man. One of his biggest dream is buying a cross motorbike. He is working for almost minimum wage for other’s farms as a daily worker also he works in same time in a factory of tomato sauce. He says that factory is so disgusting probably he would never eat tomato sauce again.

Boa Vista in the African island nation of Cape Verde is sparsely populated and sleepy – a paradise far away from the strains of European urban life.

Its main town, Sal Rei, is home to around 6,000 people, while the former capital Rabil is more like a village. Its houses are modest, built with blocks and colourfully decorated, although the paint quickly peels in the tropical sunshine. The homes around the main square in Sal Rei are a little more grand, but also with a charming air of dilapidation.

My hotel was newer and inevitably in much better condition, with rustic yellow and light brown walls, which caught the sun beautifully.

A higher planeYou cannot visit a cathedral without looking aloft to enjoy its impressive height and ornate ceilings. That’s where I end at Norwich Cathedral in eastern England, capturing the building’s beautiful roof space. It’s tempting to lie down in this pursuit, but that seems inappropriate – and mirrors are provided to easily glimpse the upward divinity. Unmissable.
