You have to know the past to understand the present

We had a London weather for 4, i think, straight days, actually is still raining!
Water is all over the streets and i decide to stay home and not go to town for any reason. Thank god my best friend's house is only 2 minutes away with the bus, so i didn't had to use an umbrella cause, well i don't have one. I need to buy 2 actually. One for the rain and one parasol for the sun. 






I start to watch two series, Once upon a time...

(I mean, look what she wears :O:@:$:D omg, perfection!)

...and Sherlock. I love them both, for different reasons!

I start, more detailed this time, to read a book about my city's history, a great big book i bought this summer. I am a big fan of history and i love to read and see things ( things from the past which made their journey and survived till now). In my city we have so many buildings and monuments that they have survived through the time. I pass them while i am walking, seeing them, touching them, imagine how it was in the past. It is an amazing feeling! Its actually weird in a beautiful way. So many people died in the most horrible ways during the past, from invasions and pirates who invaded my city, to earthquakes and big fires. But the city people, always took care of my town, to left us all those beautiful treasures. Some of them are under the streets and buried under the big awful houses for ever. At least somewhere in the past they were "alive". Buidling caring all those memories that sometimes is impossible to find them in books. All the voices captured in the walls. Everything made their print in those buildings last for ever.


Here some pictures of my beautiful home town from the past.
Have a wonderful week my friends <3

  1. I love umbrellas, always wanted to have black lace one, would be perfect for sunny days, I hate sun too!

    On those pictures you remind me a bit Angelina Jolie from Oscars 2001, its a compliment! Very lovely! :)

    Awe, Im the same, I love books about the past, I have for example a book with old pictures from my town from pre- and after-war time, it looked amazing and I just love to imagine I can travel in time and see how everything looked that time, be there, walk those streets, I dont like changes and I cant believe how everything turned worse here, too modern, so much chaos, just wrong.

    1. I want so much to have one cause sunglasses are not enough anymore!!:P

      Aw :$ thank you :$ flattered and blushing!

      Well i liked you for a reason, i could agree more with your opinion about that! i wish for the same every time i think about the past, or see a photo or talk with old people, to tell me at least things from the resent past, or see documentaries! i feel so much full when i am close to old things! and yes yes we live in the most easy century with all our comforts but it feels like we don't belong in here! at least for some people i know including you. i hope sometime in future someone will make a time machine :P

      anytime!!!:D the first one has AMAZING costumes and the second amazing music, dialogues, its something different!!

    1. Its a beauty, isnt it?

      Well its a very different from other series you may see. Its a a combination of the new times and the fairy tale times the same characters back then but now they don't remember who they are, just traped in a city. Some classic fairy tales bit differences from what we know but if you are a fan of them you will like it! and the costumes.. <3
