EGYPT

Categories: Uncategorized

Egypt is one of the richest and most famous cultures worldwide. The mysteries of the pyramids, the infinite desert, the hieroglyphs, camels, unknown riches and the wisdom of Ancient times seduce the imagination of tourists. The art in Antiquity, the scientific progress (Egyptians were among the first ones to use a mathematical system and displayed a thorough knowledge of physics and astronomy in Ancient times) and an efficient administration stopped the Roman Empire from changing their culture during colonialism. Egyptians managed to preserve their culture through millenniums of existence.

Giza Pyramids are probably the most known attractions to visitors, famous for a difficult construction, an elaborate structure and complex meanings. Luxor and the Valley of the Kings are the runner-ups, followed by the Nile River, the Sphinx, mosques, History Museums, the Sinai Mountain, Karnak, Alexandria’s Lighthouse or the Pyramid of Khafre.

As for socializing, don’t worry. Upon meeting you, it’s a sure thing an Egyptian will invite you for a cup of coffee or tea. Keep eye contact and don’t shy away from ample gestures and passionate discourse, as people here tend to show their emotions quite often. They’re friendly people and communication skills are more important than anything else when applying for a job.

Besides its history and people, Egypt has gained some reputation for other random things. In Ancient times, they were among the first ones to use make-up, toothpaste and contraception. They were also the first ones to remove all body hair, men and women alike, since they thought it would cause infections. Egyptians used to have a 10-day week. Camels didn’t inhabit Egypt in Ancient or Medieval times. One of their pharaohs was concerned about the flies and ordered some of his slaves to cover themselves in honey so that he wouldn’t be bothered again. Another one had about 10 wives and around 100 concubines. There are just as many legends as there are documents about Egyptian history, so ask left and right for stories and you’ll surely have fun!

Former Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan Pulls a Pelosi: We Need to Pass Obamatrade Before We Tell You What’s In It

Categories: Uncategorized

So much for supporting Conservative values. Paul Ryan was so desperate to pass Obama-trade that he doesn’t want anybody to know what’s in the bill:

“It’s declassified and made public once it’s agreed to,” he told the Rules Committee.

So why the secrecy? Because the bill is alleged to give President Obama more authority to push his immigration and “climate change” agenda on Americans. And Paul Ryan thought that was a terrible thing (not that Obama would get more authority but that the word got out):

Ryan, however, wasn’t finished. Appearing on Fox and Friends, he attacked conservative websites Breitbart said “have revealed the immigration and climate change provisions within President Obama’s trade agenda.”

“Look, first of all, don’t believe everything you read on the internet, Brian,” he said after being asked about provisions dealing with climate change and immigration. “Just let me give you a little tip there. Second of all, this is why we need to pass Trade Promotion Authority. What we have in Trade Promotion Authority is a prevention of any immigration changes, of any climate change legislation going into a trade agreement. So by passing Trade Promotion Authority, we’re putting congress in the driver’s seat which is transparency.”

Senator Ted Cruz also supports Ryan and Obama and wants the bill passed… immigration and “climate change” provisions and all.

Ryan has turned out to be anything but a straight shooter and his plea for needing to pass the bill before its contents can be revealed to the American public is worse than Nancy Pelosi’s “we need to pass it in order to know what’s in it.”

ALGERIA

Categories: Uncategorized

Algeria is an African country with an extensive history and a rich culture. The country is famous for the diversity of its landscapes, including the arid desert of Sahara or wonderful beaches for anyone’s vacations. Dishes like couscous, merguez or chorba are a curiosity for foreigners, altogether with pita that is always on the table of an Algerian meal. Algeria has many historical places, since it belonged to the Roman Empire, later to Byzantium, to the Ottoman Empire or to French people. Their roots trace back to Berbers, and some of them still like the term Berber instead of Algerian to erase a past of colonialism.

ALGERIA

Supposedly, Algeria was what Antoine de Saint-Exupery had in mind when writing The Citadel. Djemila and Timgad are a cultural heritage from the Roman Empire. The Old City in Algiers displays historical monuments or architectural artworks. Vineyards are an excellent choice for a pleasant evening. The bridges of Constantine are famous all throughout Africa. Oran has entertained before Albert Camus and nowadays has a very upbeat nightlife.

Algerians love to party and you can find them in large groups, going around nightclubs. They’re easy-going and fun to be around. Once you’re here, you’ll notice how much communication and human bonding matters. If a police officer writes a speeding ticket, an Algerian uses all sorts of verbal tricks to get out of the situation. And usually, he or she will be victorious. Honor though is an important value and it depends on their contribution to the community. A lack in generosity or empathy means losing the respect of the others.

ALGERIA

Algerians may have some interesting habits. If they ran out of a product, they’d rather ask a neighbor than go all the way to the store. This way, they can chitchat a bit and they’ll have the opportunity to meet again when returning said product. When they run into each other, it’s more like a party. They start talking about family issues, work-related problems, ancestors, politics and anything in between. They’re also probably between the only people in this world that enjoy a pasta sandwich. They like to go out early and come back late and they have their own types of music, chaabi and rai.

California Lighthouses

Categories: Uncategorized

There are over 40 lighthouses along the California Coastline, some of which are still functional and important structures for the U.S. Coast Guard. The historical and inherently romantic notions of lighthouses in the fog, however, commonly come to mind more readily for most travelers. Fortunately, most of the California lighthouses are open to the public. They offer spectacular views, and some even house museums or a place to stay overnight.

Bed and Breakfast Lighthouse

The East Brother Light Station sits on an island about 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco, and it is an active lighthouse that also operates as a bed-and-breakfast inn. There are five rooms available, and the stay includes champagne and hors d’oeuvres, a full dinner with wine and a gourmet breakfast each morning. A boat picks up guests and personally delivers them across the bay. It takes about 10 minutes; be ready to step from the boat onto a ladder, and climb up to 12 feet, depending on the tide. The Light Station is at 117 Park Place,
Point Richmond, CA 94801, (510) 233-2385, www.ebls.org.

Whale Watching from Lighthouses

The Point Arena Lighthouse on the Mendocino coast juts out into the ocean for two miles, offering an excellent place to watch for California Gray Whales as they migrate from Baja to the Bering Sea during the months of December through April.

Center Yourself
A vacation spent on your own can be a great opportunity to get more spiritually grounded. Kopan Monastery, a Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreat in Nepal, has been offering spiritual guidance to Western visitors since 1969 and is a favorite vacation spot for the spiritually minded. Each year in November, more than 200 pilgrims come to the monastery for a month. However, seven- and 10-day meditation retreats are also offered where students are taught meditation skills and tools to handle problems or dissatisfaction in their lives.

Be a Kid Again
Remember heading off to summer camp as a kid? You embarked on that vacation alone as well, but when you left you developed lifelong friends and memories that you could revisit the next summer. Well, just because you aren’t a kid anymore doesn’t mean you can’t still go to camp. There are many adults-only camps that offer a range of experiences like academic and art courses, performance workshops, and fantasy and sports camps. You can spend your vacation immersed in your favorite hobby or take the opportunity to learn a new one. Either way, you are likely to make friends in the process.

Learn French
If you’ve always wanted to travel to France but have been wary about what to do there alone, consider taking a language course. The French American Exchange offers French lessons in beautiful Aix-en-Provence, just a few miles north of Marseille. The classes include 15 hours of instruction per week, which include language skills as well as lessons in French civilization and culture. And in the afternoons, courses in French cooking, wine tasting and more are offered for an additional fee. But the best thing about the courses is that they are not only an opportunity to learn something new, but an opportunity to meet other vacationers who share similar interests.
