"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    Where in Brazil are you from @LucasS? I visited Brazil some years ago and loved it. I took a boat from Manaus to Belem, visited Salvador, Rio De Janeiro and Parate, which was fabulous.

    @mheredge I was born in Bahia (Salvador is capital there), but currently I live in State of São Paulo, more specifically in São Paulo City. I think that you know much more of Brazil than me, it's awesome. Nice to meet you :smiley:

    I didn't spend more than one night in Sao Paulo @LucasS. I stayed in a hostel on the recommendation of a Brazilian couple I had met on the airport bus. It was very good.

    The bells of the Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Nice are pealing loudly. There must be something important happening, like a wedding or christening, as usually they don't ring out like this.

    I'm from Istanbul. It is a big and crowded city inTurkei. There are about 25 million people in the city so it is more crowded than many countries. There are many historical buildings and tourist attractions in Istanbul. It used to be a great city but it is too crowded and there is traffic jam almost everywhere. There are too many cars and buildings and there is not enough green area.

    @ydogan85 - That is a very busy town, there are less citizens in my whole country, Belgium, than in your capital.
    I learned about Istanbul in the lessons history about the earlier city name Constantinople as capital of the Byzantine empire and I was very facinated about it.
    Are there still remains of those times to visite?
  • ydogan85ydogan85 Posts: 18 ✭✭
    @Paulette yes there are lots of remains of those times however Istanbul is not the capital of Turkei. Our capital city is Ankara.

    I passed through Istanbul last year @ydogan85 but only spent one night (in Taksim). I stayed a couple of weeks in the 1990s, but I could see how much has changed since then. I often fly with Turkish Airways when I go to Nepal and next time I will try to break my journey to spend a bit longer in Istanbul.
