Rice, to the Balinese, is more than just the staple food it is an integral part of the Balinese culture. The rituals of the cycle of planting, maintaining, irrigating, and harvesting rice enrich the cultural life of Bali beyond a single staple can ever hope to do. At the beginning of planting time, after the water buffalloes walk the rice fields several times to prepare them, ceremonies are held to carry the young stems of rice that have been nurtured in a special nursery. On each section of the rice fields, the corner nearest to Gunung Agung will receive the honor to be the first place to receive the young stems of rice. The water level in each section is perfect; little streams of water effortlessly flow from the highest section up on top of the hill to the very bottom section. The planning and responsiblity of the irrigation and planting schedule are arranged through subak, a Balinese system that ties together rice cultivation with its water temple system. Historical evidence dates this system to around the 11th century, yet the yield per acre of a Balinese rice field is about the highest in the world!

Antwerpen. Belgique. 1993.
I can imagine the local commuters the next day.. "Borloakes! What ish da faarkin hell ish dish mean?"
Just a thought.
High in the hills of Busan, lies the Gamcheon Culture Village.
Initially the area was a shanty town, when thousand of people fled south to the safety of Busan during the Korean War. The area has grown exponentially since, upgrading from shanty town to brick and mortar houses with the colourful facade you see today. Some 10,000 people now live here, although it remains the poorest area of the city.
I had a great time exploring all the little alleyways here and getting lost. Rather unsurprisingly, the locals dislike having tourists wondering around their doorsteps, often shooing people away for taking pictures. I can't say I blame them, despite the revenue it must bring them

Eighteen years into this young life of mine and I'm being faced with so many decisions that will impact the rest of life. The next couple of years entail some incredible things including a road trip through Canada to explore my home country. I also plan to travel to Peru and Switzerland where I have family that live in the mountains raising thousands of sheep. Visiting them would be the opportunity of a life time and I happen to have a few friends that are willing to join me. One being Ansel Edwards and the other being this young lady named Victoria. We're all very cultural, Adventurous and excited to travel the world.

Our culture we shall never forget, not only us, but all of us.
Ancient memories do come back.
When we used to swing, and laugh.
When we used to push each other and steal the swings.
When we used to throw things and hurt ourselves and others.
but they still were nice memories.
They always make me smile, and sometimes wish I was a child again.
Then, I would not have to face the bitter truth that life is not like they tought us it was.
When we were children, an apology was enough, but today, all kinds of punishment and torture do not suffice.
What can we do to make life better?
If anything, the United Nations make it worse.
We should change ourselves, before we try to change others.
We "The People" have the greatest power of all.
We have to unite and put our hands together.
We shall not fight, nor shall we allow fights.
This is what I think, but if you differ, feel free.
In many cultures, tea is often had at high class social events, such as afternoon tea and the tea party. It may be consumed early in the day to heighten alertness it contains theophylline and bound caffeine although there are also decaffeinated teas.
Tea is prevalent in most cultures in the Middle East. In Arab culture, tea is a focal point for social gatherings. In Iranian and Pakistani cultures, tea is so widely consumed that it is generally the first thing offered to a household guest.
In Pakistan, both black and green teas are popular and are known locally as sabz chai and kahwah, respectively. The popular green tea called kahwah is often served after every meal in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, which is where the Khyber Pass is found, and in the Pashtun belt of Balochistan. In the Kashmir region of Pakistan, Kashmiri chai or "noon chai," a pink, milky tea with pistachios and cardamom, is consumed primarily at special occasions, weddings, and during the winter months when it is sold in many kiosks. In the northern Pakistan regions of Chitral and Gilgit-Baltistan, a salty, buttered Tibetan-style tea is consumed
