Where i read

(the book on the table is Karen Armstrong’s History of Jerusalem, One City, Three Faiths that set me on my journey and that i read along the road)

And a lot of world news covered by journalists risking their lives….https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium-when-foreign-media-outlets-become-israel-s-enemy-1.10794397?utm_source=mailchimp&utm_medium=email&utm_content=author-alert&utm_campaign=Zvi%20Bar%27el&utm_term=20220512-06:05

Friend turtle passing by

There is a very good book on all the antique marbles and treasures, statues and friezes that have been taken out of Turkey (Anatolia) by Europeans (English, Austrian, French, German, Dutch) and Americans by Yaşar Yilmaz. How rich and wonderful would it be if these hoarded treasures were still in their original place? One could then experience much more of the high quality of ancient civilizations, Lycian, Lydian, Aechemenid, Hellene, Luwian, Hittite, Roman. It would be a more historical world one could perceive, instead of a stolen past.
