Visitor of this morning

This old male European hare have been living years in backyards of our homestreet. He is a nice fellow but he will eat   flowers of my daffodils  when they will at last arrive  after two or three weeks. 



The first day of April

Good  Our World Tuesday to all of you!

We have here still a real winter even -10 degrees Celsius during nights but rays of sun are fortunately already warming days.

As you can see from the last photo a spring is coming slowly also to us.

Enough – I think!

Through beautiful Andalusia to Alhambra

Olive trees and wheat fields
Mountains in a horizon 
This figure was at first only a sign of  some brandy but then came  a symbol of Andalusia.

The was a moment behind  a cloud and gave a little wrong idea about the weather.
Getting Alhambra
Above the gate is a small statue of the Virgin Maria
Incredible decorations start and our necks and cameras were really working

It is difficult to imagine all work what those patterns have needed.
More details will come in next post.

Going to Petra, Jordan

After we left Agaba landscapes were very rugged, desert like.
The government of Jordan has built and is building houses for Bedouins.
No greenish at all!
These buildings are for cattle
But how these animals can find something to eat ?
But goats are clever 🙂
Brown landscape. . . .
This view pleases my eyes
Then we saw a small nice town
And again a desert
Some villages
And the desert continues
and continues. . . .
This is very interesting view!
That white spot on the hill is built for Aaron, who was a brother of Moses And it is told that Aaron died here on the Mount Hor


In fulfilment of the promise of peaceful life, symbolized by the pouring of oil upon his head (Leviticus Rabbah x., Midrash Teh. cxxxiii. 1), Aaron’s death, as described in the Haggadah, was of a wonderful tranquility.[16] Accompanied by Moses, his brother, and by Eleazar, his son, Aaron went to the summit of Mount Hor, where the rock suddenly opened before him and a beautiful cave lit by a lamp presented itself to his view.[16] “Take off thy priestly raiment and place it upon thy son Eleazar!” said Moses; “and then follow me.”[16]Aaron did as commanded; and they entered the cave, where was prepared a bed around which angels stood.[16] “Go lie down upon thy bed, my brother,” Moses continued; and Aaron obeyed without a murmur.[16] Then his soul departed as if by a kiss from God.[16] The cave closed behind Moses as he left; and he went down the hill with Eleazar.

I have been climbing to the Mount Hor and seen that building, which was on a cave.
Then we drove through a town. . . .
And so again the Mount Hor

I have been climbing to the Mount Hor and seen that building, which was on a cave.

Arriving to Petra
Horses and camels were for tourists
A long road through rocks starts
We were not alone there . . .
No indeed
