"What is handmade in Laos? Can you guess?" I would strongly suggest visiting this museum, if you would like to support local artisans and traditions and plan on shopping in various shops and markets of Luang Prabang or Laos. Besides this display, which gives you an opportunity to guess "what's real and what's not", they provide many tips on how to spot original and handmade quality items. Can you spot the difference? Natural materials or synthetics? ))))💡🎟🤔😲😀✌🏻 P.S. How much would you pay for "made in China or Vietnam factory copy" stuff???? 😳😆

What else can you visit in Luang Prabang? For a cultural capital of the country, there are not that many theaters, museums and cultural centers to choose from. However, if you are into learning about different cultures, traditions, textiles and music in Laos, there is a place to check out too 🗺💡🌺🎟😲😀

What can you learn at UXO LAO information center in Luang Prabang? Actually, a lot! There is an intro video, you can watch at the beginning of the tour to learn some basic info about Vietnam war and their efforts to demine Laos countryside. You can also see what kind of impact these bombs had on locals, even children, and see those "empty shells", war stories, "demined areas", their progress, who supports and pays for it and overall impact on the society for yourself. So it's not surprising, not that many females visit this museum (it's not exactly fairytale Disneyland I guess?!), and even I was reminded about this museum by a fellow traveler.... Do they mention this info in many travel blogs and history books?💡🤔🤔✌🏻

If you would like to know more info about Vietnam war, and what Laos had to do with it, you can visit UXO LAO information center in Luang Prabang, to learn more about it and how it has impacted Laos as a country, and local people, mostly civilians!!!!, up to the present day. Do they mention this info in many travel blogs and history books???? 🗺💡🤔🙃

Lisbon has changed. The city that was once known by its historical and cultural heritage along with its problems of loss and aging population, has changed. The socio-economic weakening as well as the degradation of the urban tissue gave place to a more agitated, fresh and multicultural city dynamics, where the lack of cultural option turned into pure difficulty of choice. • 📸 by @meitacosmica. at Terreiro do Paço

@weissmanfredi, NA: Olympic Sculpture Park is a project in which #architecture, #landscape and #urbanism come together to offer a response that goes beyond solving an #infrastructure problem. 🏙 WEISS/MANFREDI’s project not only remodels the landscape of an unresolved node in the city but gives it an important new #cultural and #social function. The project is an initiative of the @seattleartmuseum responding to the need to offer a new approach to art that goes beyond its classic setting, the museum, to make it an active part of people’s lives and of #publicspaces in the city. 🏙💥 — #nationalacademy #nationalacademician #contemporaryarchitecture #weissmanfredi #sculpture #urbanlandscape #architect #linesofmovement #movement #outdoorland #projectspace #contemporaryculture #gallery #museum #painting #drawing #studio #park #cityculture #community #publicspace at Seattle Art Museum

What most travelers don't realize, when they visit Laos, with its nature, temples, culture and all, is that this was the most heavily bombed country during Vietnam conflict 😳🙃 I personally couldn't figure out why that happened and who exactly is responsible for this atrocity and nonsense.... And how could anyone justify this???? However, in Luang Prabang you do see what a place can become with a cultural protection status and proper investments 🗺💡🌺✌🏻 P.S. Nope, other places I've been to don't look like this! 🤔🤔

Hello guys. I know that I have been a bit absent but I'm on vacation in Florence until Tuesday, so I'm sorry if I'm not doing my usual reviews or talking about beauty stuff. Well... the city is a beauty in itself. Yesterday I found this cute store with Pinocchio sitting outside 🤥😍 Isn't it adorable??? . . . . #firenze #florence #florenceitaly #italia #italy #citylife #cityculture #vacation #traveladdict #travelphoto #traveler #travel #tuscany #toscana #travelpic #firenzetoday #firenzegram #firenzerocks #lovetraveling #travelobsessed #travels #travelphotography #pinocchio #loveflorence #iloveflorence #cuteshop #travelislife #touristpic at Florence, Italy

Laos is kind of like this.... very different! I haven't been to that many places in the country, but from what I've seen and experienced, UNESCO status of Luang Pranang and foreign investments into restoration of the temples, city center and local businesses have certainly made it into a very unique and thriving place in the country. What more does a traveler want? 🗺💡🌺🤔😀✌🏻

"Music is a spiritual thing. You don't play with music. If you play with music you will die young. You see, when the higher forces give you the gift of music it must be well used for the gift of humanity." • Known for its heritage values, @carharttwip announced a new capsule collection inspired by legendary African musician Fela Kuti. Kuti developed an Afrobeat style combining West African influences with American Funk and Jazz. He was a human rights activist and a people's champion, becoming one of the most beloved musical and human icons of our time. This collaboration will also feature a limited edition vinyl reissue of the "Live In Detroit" record from 1986. • Available on April 5th. • 📸 by @carharttwip.

Do you prefer to visit new cities or take trips that take you into nature? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While I adore taking in nature, breathing in fresh air, and seeing new climates, there's something about being a part of the culture of a city that draws me in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I grew up near New York City, but didn't truly appreciate it until just before I moved to Los Angeles 🤦🏼‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now when I go back to visit the east coast, I always make time for the city because there's just something about the New York vibe that just makes me feel at home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #travelblogger #travelblog #travels #newyorkcity #freedomtower #cityvsnature #cityculture #cityview #newyorkskyline #lowermanhattan #financialdisctrict

"Exile was a way to take a breath." Just like Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway, also James Baldwin had to leave United States in order to better put is own country in words. Nevertheless, it was as human activist during the 50's and 60's, more than a novelist, that Baldwin got his social recognition. Poor, Baldwin went in 1948 on a trip to France where lived for nine years. "I left America because i doubted of my ability to survive the violence caused by skin color." In "If Beale Street Could Talk" from 74, Baldwin writes about a tragic love story between a Black couple from Harlem as a prisional metaphor for racism and social exclusion in America. With its name taken from W.C Handy's Blues song "Beale Street Blues" from 1916, the book is at the same time an homage to Black Culture and its people, starting at the title which refers to a Memphis Tennessee Street that was an epicenter for Black American Culture in the beginning of the 20th century. • 📸 by Unknown.
