a stopover in london (2)

The red telephone boxes are countless in the UK, and should be considered mundane by now. But somehow we can never resist the temptation for a new shot ;)

a stopover in london (1)

The fun of having strolls around an unknown city, without a map, is that you never know where you'll going to end up. Going home for Christmas, we decided to leave early and spend a few hours in London. And the first suprising landmark we saw was the Battersea Power Station

Loukoum or turkish delight. I could eat these, If only I didn't know they were made of glass ;) The bracelet didn't last long and belongs to a crazy first year student now.

beads in atumn (1)

During cold days when there is no chance for a walk and no mood to study or (worse!) mark assignments, I take out my toolbox with beads, wire and pliers and work silently.

The world drifts away for a while, until my hands produce something nice, and I start walking around the house, boasting about my new piece of art to anyone present ;)

A mad side effect: pairs of earrings and bracelets have piled up in my drawers. This of course made me grip the camera and produce loads of photos so that I can advertise and get rid of the shiny stuff :))

Enjoy the effects!

Ok. This is me feeding on berries after only 10 days of living in Canterbury. Just another way of expressing my attitude towards the English food...

I intend to give this website a fresher look these days, so forgive me any strange side-effects. You may want to report them as well.

over the summer

Ok, here comes a new series of photos.

Don't be surprised if they turn out a bit schizophrenic. This is what a bunch of Belgians and English, one Pole and one Romanian come up with, when they are to teach on a summer camp... when no one is watching... ;)

Time for a change

OK, enough complaining and longing for sunny days. Winter is not so bad at all. I didn't really have a proper holiday mid semester break, but a three-day-long photographic event in the middle of a big big forrest full of snow AND in the company of some 20 photography freaks is enough, to cheer me up.

Don't like African weather?

Join us for a Polish Safari... ;)

leaving Hrodna


leaving Grodno
Originally uploaded by Fotosia.
This is the last photo from my travel to Hrodna in July 2006. The photograph was taken by my friend, Yenny, in front of the Hrodna train station at 6 o'clock in the morning.

We'd spend the previous night with a bunch of polish-speaking locals. Our bellies full of pielmieni and vodka, we are about to climb a bus to Białystok, a city in Poland which is close to the Belarussian border. Although only 80 kilometres long, the journey will last a while - the bus is full of smugglers trying to hide alcohol and cigarettes everywhere they can.

People who enter Poland, are smuggling in vodka and cigarettes. People who enter Belarus are smuggling in meat: Is meat in Belarus more expensive? Less available? Of a worse quality? All answers of the above?

Anyway... If you watch TV and read newspapers, your impression is probably that Belarussian people are poor and that they do not have much freedom. Many authorities in Poland believe Belarus to be a a completely wild country ruled by a soviet dictator, and partially, they are right. What the news doesn't say though is that Belarusians are very friendly and hospitable and that their country is really worth seeing.

Belarus it is a great place for travellers fascinated with Eastern Europe and it's political ups and downs so If is not a threat to you, to sleep in low class hotels and read the cyrillic alphabet, get a visa, change some dollars and head for the cities of Minsk, Brest, Vitebsk and Hrodno. If you do that, you will discover unique soviet architecture - well preserved and cared for. Loads of strange propaganda crap like 30 minute long news broadcasts about Hugo Chavez visiting President Łukaszenka. You will see proud, patriotic monuments and poverty, cunningly shut off in the back streets. You will also discover a merry folk divided into two groups: the ones who adore their leader, and the ones who hate him and want to fight for the "Free Belarus". It's all a sad but at the same time fascinating mixture.

Belarus is really worth seeing and if two two female students from Poland could walk around freely, make photographs and discuss politics with local people, than you could probably do the same.
