Rudale Palace in Latvia (8)

In fact, I was most impressed by what I have seen inside the palace – the paintings and the furniture.

It features how the royal family has lived.DSC_0234

Here are a couple of photos showing the rooms within the palace.DSC_0238

This is how the Palace is introduced in Wikipedia:

Rundāle Palace , formerly also Ruhenthal and Ruhendahl is one of the two major baroque palaces built for the Dukes of Courland  in what is now Latvia, the other being Jelgava Palace. The palace was built in two periods, from 1736 until 1740 and from 1764 until 1768. It is situated at Pilsrundāle, 12 km west of Bauska.

The Streets and Alleys of Baltic (25)

I will be doing a series on streets and alleys of the Baltic countries.

I have been to all the Baltic capitals which includes visiting of some of the UNESCO Heritage sites like Vilnius, Riga, Tallinn etc.

What I found most interesting are the alleys and the streets which all have their own characteristics.DSC_0083

I am not able to tell you exactly where those alleys and streets are; in my simple mind, they are my memorable parts of the Baltic.

I like the cobblestones, the quaint street, the colored walls on both sides of the alleys, the cafes along or encroached onto the roads, the crude masonry wall facing and last, but not the least, the friendly people.

They leave an undeletable part in my memory!

Weekly Photo Challenge ( Earth )

This week’s photo challenge is Earth.

Do we know the origin and the future of our planet Earth?DSCF2125

Do we know why we are on Earth ? I doubt many know why.

What on earth have we done to our Earth? A lot of harmful things?

Can we help to save the Earth? Surely, a lot can be done.DSCF2128

Can we see the Great Wall from the plane – depending on the altitude and the meteorological condition?

What can you see when flying on a small plane to Botswana, Africa?DSCF2156

You will see part of the  Earth as revealed by the accompanying photos.

The photos were taken by my sister in law on the plane to Botswana to whom credit is due.
