TAL DÍA COMO HOY

En 1935, se inauguró el Metro de Moscú (en ruso: Московский метрополитен), también conocido como el palacio subterráneo, y lo ilustramos con la serie que hizo el fotógrafo de Magnum Carl de Keyzer en 1989.

Es el primero del mundo por densidad de pasajeros, transportó en el año 2011 a 2388,8 millones de pasajeros y el día pico fue el 22 de noviembre de 2011 en el cual transportó a 9,27 millones de personas.1 Tiene 185 estaciones y una longitud de tendido subterráneo de 305,5 kilómetros (tercero en el mundo después de Londres y Nueva York) con 12 líneas.

I mean, they say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.

“An anthropologist proposed a game to children in an african tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the children that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run, they all took eachothers hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats.
When he asked them why they had run like that when one could have had all the fruits for himself, they said ‘UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the others are sad?’ (‘UBUNTU’ in the Xhosa culture means: ‘I am because we are)”

White temple - Chiang RaiThe temple had a gigantic buddha represented inside it, but everything surrounding it was designed to represent evil. It was an odd experience.

I can’t really describe it, but this photo touched something within me. It tells a story. It transports feelings.
Also, the point of view - as if it was taken from a hiding place - fits perfectly into the scene.

MSF staff at the mobile clinic in Pagak vaccinate a child for measles and polio and give him vitamin A.  At the Ethiopian border in Pagak, MSF has set up a mobile clinic to provide assistance to the South Sudanese refugees. The refugees, who are mostly women and children, arrive in poor conditions after their harrowing journey to the camp. In addition the living conditions are pretty bad in Pagak transit camp, where the refugees hardly receive any food or water.
