POINT BLANK: THE LABI HOUZ

Bukhara (Uzbekistan / Central Asia), an oasis along the historic silk road.

The Labi Houz is the name of the area surrounding one of the few remaining hauz, or pond, in the city of Bukhara. The ponds acted as the city’s principal source of water.

Nowadays it’s a wonderful place where people meet each other, strolling around, chatting with each other and having a cup of tea. A delightful place to chill.


POINT BLANK: A WALK IN THE DARK

“Ночь, улица, фонарь, аптека,
Бессмысленный и тусклый свет.
Живи ещё хоть четверть века —
Всё будет так. Исхода нет.

Умрёшь — начнёшь опять сначала
И повторится всё, как встарь:
Ночь, ледяная рябь канала,
Аптека, улица, фонарь.”

(Aleksander Blok)

.

“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark,

than alone in the Light”

(Helen Keller)

Thanks for the walk with a friend, Lena.


POINT BLANK: LOW TIDE

“In high seas or in low seas
I’m gonna be your friend
He said, “I’m gonna be your friend”
And, baby, high tide or in low tide
I’ll be by your side”

(High Tide Or Low Tide, Bob Marley)

POINT BLANK: NEW YEARS DAY

All of you a happy new year!

May we all enjoy the good things

And face the bad things with a confident smile


POINT BLANK: DRY BRIDGE BAZAAR / TBLISSI

Dry Bridge Bazaar / მშრალი ხიდი

If you looking for paintings, books, jewelery, spark plugs, condensers, records, cameras, lenses, sunglasses, vases, tools, dishes, ball bearings then you are in very good hands on the Dry Bridge Bazaar in Tblissi/Georgia.

But even if you just like to stroll around and like to chat with these nice people at the market, you get well entertained for hours by the beautiful sight of the merchandize and all that interesting stories you get told. Just enjoy.

 


POINT BLANK: WINTERSCHLAF

Machen wir uns nichts vor. Der Sommer ist vorbei. Trotzdem ist es schön die Sonnenstrahlen zu geniessen und in den Winterschlaf von Tver/Russland einzutauchen.

Hibernation is a covert preparation for a more overt action.
Ralph Ellison

Der Winterschlaf ist eine verdeckte Vorbereitung für eine weit offenere Aktion.
Ralph Ellison

…so I enjoyed my stroll through the wintry sleepy city of Tver, to look forward for all the surprises the city will keep ready for me.
