No fog today - thank goodness. Just the golden light turning the bricks pink and orange. I always find the things that haven’t reached modernity the most fascinating parts of India. This scene of our house looks like it could come from any time period. Brick wall, draped cloth, and ladders still made the same way they have been for centuries. #shotoniphone#thedawnseries#india#ladder#themodernworld#theancientworld#indialife
Beautiful Ancient Map....Holy Mount Zion aka The Land Of Israel✊🏽! They have all the lands with their ancient names after the flood....as you can see Europe is Japheth lands that’s where people get the mistake that the Caucasians (so called “White” people) are of the seed of Japheth, but if you know your history you would know they PUSHED THEIR WAY UP THERE that’s how come if you go to places like Siberia you can see some of the people have an Asian almost Chinese/Korean look to them those are the original Japhethic people (and no their not “Moab” smh), the Caucasians are the EDOMITES who migrated from Mount Seir the region of Petra (if you look at the archaeology there it looks just like Ancient Rome because the Romans were EDOMITES)....oh for you so-called Negroes who claim to be Israel but talk about Africa all day even on this map shows you that Africa is the land of HAM (we migrated into Africa but we’re not Africans they are the ones who sold us into the hands of the Arabs and the white man!) because we’re THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL who fled Jerusalem after 70 A.D. into Africa and other parts of the earth, then came to the Americas and the Caribbean on slave ships FULFILLING the prophecy of Deuteronomy 28:68 and there is where we will be delivered from OUR ENEMIES by the Chariots of God (Isaiah 66:15, Micah 4:10 and Revelation 11:11-12)

Lake Qarun Boats, 1995, hand-colored gelatin-silver print
Lake Qarun (Lake Moeris in ancient Greek), is an ancient lake in the northwest of Fayoum Oasis, previously a freshwater lake, today a saltwater lake with tilapia the main fish source. In 2300 BC, the waterway from the Nile to the natural lake was widened and deepened by Amenemhat III, to control the flooding of the nile and provide the surrounding area with irrigation. On the banks of the lake is the desert Roman outpost of Dimai and the pharaonic temple of Qasr el Sagha closeby. It used to be a challenging 4x4 day trip to find and explore. Now an asphalt road approaches within a kilometer making access a piece of cake.

The Coronation of Queen Hatshepsut. The ceremony is somber while the priest hands her the crown, and the room is full of incense smoke. Attendants place the false beard on her, then give her the staff and flail. She was a Pharaoh who ruled as a man, leading the largest Kingdom in the Ancient World - Egypt

GOING BACK IN TIME // last night we wandered around ancient catacombs and saw the oldest depiction of the nativity scene. today we traveled to Ostia Antica -- probably Rome's first colonia dating back over 2,500 years. we walked the roman road, saw their bath houses and their markets and even their theatre.
I love how the current world here exists all around these archeological ruins. just a train stop away and here you are. plenty of people hustling and bustling and here we are mouths gaping eyes wide.
last night our tours around the catacombs were surreal. thinking they'd be creepy (and trust me they were!) there was also a much deeper and richer experience. our view of life and death. family. relations. honoring lineage.
today I'm grateful to wander the world, learn about the past and move with kindness into the future.
Halicarnassus (modern Bodrum, Turkey) was an ancient Ionian Greek city of Caria, located on the Gulf of Cerameicus in Anatolia. According to tradition it was founded by Dorian Greeks of the Peloponnese.
Halicarnassus has become linked with the birth of written history as it was the native city of Herodotus, `The Father of History' but, in its time, it was better known as one of the great urban trade centers of Asia Minor. || (Info by Joshua J. Mark on Ancient History Encyclopedia)
