There were times over the last two weeks when what I witnessed seemed taken from the script of an outlandish movie, the kind where everyone tuts and says, "That is just so Hollywood. That would never happen in real life". William Goldman, the writer of films such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid once said that there were things taken from real life he couldn't put in his scripts as nobody would believe them.
Here is a selection of the few I remember from the riots and protests that I covered over the last two weeks.
The two guys wearing masks are ready to charge the bank , all set on smashing the security camera and disabling the ATM. However, there is a young woman there, oblivious to the mayhem around here who is taking out her money. The masked men wait, politely ask her if she has finished then set about the cash machine with hammers.
A march goes past a van, inside two tiny Shetland ponies stuck in a space not much bigger than they are. The protesters, enraged by this discuss what to do. In the end they take down the number plates as to....report the owners to the authorities. Just a few metres behind them riot police approach menacingly.
50 kids, one no more than 10 years old pelting the central police station with rocks as bewildered shoppers seemingly unable to grasp what is happening gawp while pieces of paving stone clatter around them. The quasi - military riot police up against tweenies
Walking along Egnatia Boulevard lit up by at least a dozen fires, acrid smell of tear gas and burning plastic everywhere. Two middle aged bystanders argue over whether the anarchists about to firebomb a bank are doing the right thing. The older, white haired guy, says, :"What do you care? It's not your money".
An old woman buttoning holing a passing masked teen, scolding him about what has been happening. Others join in a passionately debate what has been happening over the last few days.
A smartly dressed woman , shopping bags around her waiting at the bus stop claps and cheers masked protesters marching by. the man next to her shouts out "Shame. shame on you""

A year ago today, I was in Dubai with the Twister Aerobatics Team, supporting a performance at the DHL Focus 2020 conference.
We operated into Skydive Dubai's runway near Dubai Marina and I was able to fly in one of the company's Twin Otters a few times during our stay.
We're pictured here flying down the Sheikh Zayed Road with skyscrapers towering above us.

Gold Griot (détail) 1984 de Jean-Michel Basquiat
Le terme griot désigne les conteurs, poètes et musiciens itinérants chargés de transmettre les traditions orales dans certaines parties de l'Afrique de l'Ouest.
Ici, Basquiat récupère des planches de palissade pour dresser un fond doré sur lequel peindre un immense personnage noir en maquillage rituel, une figure africaine élevée au rang d'icône qui fait écho aux riches récits de la diaspora africaine.

Tear gas canisters about to land in the university of Thessaloniki. I can't think of many things worse than being tear gassed. Your lungs just stop drawing oxygen and for what seems like an eternity you feel that you'll never breathe again. The stinging eyes I can hack but the feeling that someone has just removed your lungs, is scary beyond belief.
Greece erupts in flames after death of teen.
The death of a 15 year - old in central Athens during clashes with police in the Exearchia district has sparked off a series of violent protests in the Greek capital and other major cities. Thessaloniki, Patras, and Crete all witnessed violent clashes between demonstrators and riot police.
According to official reports Andreas Grigoropoulos died after being shot at 9pm by police guarding the Exarcheia police station, which due to its proximity to the university of Athens is often a target for attacks by anarchist and other leftist groups. However, eye witness accounts tell a different story. According to local residents the the police officer shot Grigoropoulos after an argument. Greek national TV is now calling the incident a "cold blooded Murder" rather than an act of self - defence.
News of the death quickly spread via the internet, SMS and word of mouth leading to protests across Greece. Today's marches quickly turned violent as enraged demonstrators took our their anger on banks, shops and police stations.
In Thessaloniki, Greece's second city the central Leukos Pyrgos police station was attacked by masked anarchists with rocks and Molotov cocktails. The police replied with tear gas and flash grenades causing panic and chaos amongst the thousands of marchers not involved in the violence.
TV images being shown live on Greek TV show central Athens swathed in smoke and tear gas and tens of small fires burn unattended as the fire fighters are unable to put them out.
Although violent scenes are not uncommon in Greece the extent, duration and intensity of the riots seems to have taken the authorities by surprise.In addition the fact that many of those who took in protest marches were neither young nor students is indicative of the fact that the death of the teenager has angered many Greeks. Case in point was the pensioner, who stood in front of a phalanx of riot police, apoplectic with rage shouting, "cops, killer, pigs" during the march in Thessaloniki
The events couldn't have come at a worst time for the conservative New Democracy government which has been losing support due to its handing of the recent economic crisis and the alleged involvement of many senior officials in the Vatopedi corruption scandal.
I attended the grand celebration of AKWASIDAE in kumasi, traditional festival in which the king of the Ashanti, Osei Kofu Tutu, receiving guests, dressed strictly with tunics, which bring a gift bottle of schnapps, sheep, chickens and technological objects.
The whole ceremony is accompanied by griots, songs and dances that blend, in a unique blend of ancient traditions and the modern style Ghanaian.
Akwasidae festivals take place in Ghana every six weeks, to honor the ancestors and the king of Ashantiwhich is transported above a canopy with a procession of people and Ashanti chiefs who came to to pay tribute to their king.
It is a good show, with canopies and colorful umbrellas between drummers, singers and dancers who perform in honor of their ancestral spirits.
