  1. Great .. photo, can see that they have a bit of age on them. Love the way you have put them in a frame … how do you do that ???? *smile My favorite is the “tea field” – the last.

  2. Indonesia is a fascinating country, very rich in culture. I traveled there for awhile in the late Seventies.

    Unfortunately, it has fallen on very bad times, and is unlikely to recover. What a pity, that such nice people should suffer the most!

    I noticed the same thing in Sri Lanka and the Maldives.

  5. Was there a while back when my father and I went to visit relatives there and the surrounding areas Surabaya, Bandung as well as Bali. Such a different life! But very beautiful in the mountain regions and also the beaches. Would be interesting to go back sometime. Thanks for posting!

Drought has plunged water levels to the lowest in China in decades. The temperatures have also soared to record levels, and hydropower plants failed to meet the sharp rise in power demand.

India’s foreign ministry said on Friday that disengagement along a disputed border area with China will be completed by Sept. 12.

How to make EVs without China’s supply chain

Two electrifying moves in recent weeks have the potential to ignite electric vehicle demand in the United States. First, Congress passed the Inflation Reduction Act, expanding federal tax rebates for EV purchases. Then California approved rules to ban the sale of new gasoline-powered cars by 2035. The Inflation Reduction Act extends the Obama-era EV tax […]

Anti-India forces: Techniques and agendas exposed

In the post-cold war era, India has moved from a policy of non-alignment to a policy of multi-alignment. This means that India has friendly relations with almost all-powerful and developing nations.

Taiwan’s frontline island of Kinmen was once again in the headlines when President Tsai Ing-wen paid tribute this week to the soldiers and civilians who “operated in solidarity and safeguarded Taiwan” 64 years ago.

Terrorism: The glue that holds China and Pakistan together 

The father of communism, Karl Marx, once famously said — “We have no compassion, and we ask no compassion from you. When our turn comes, we shall not make excuses for the terror”. This statement summarises how terrorism and communism go hand in hand. Maoist China alone destroyed between 44.5 to 72 million lives. During […]

‘New normal’ across the Taiwan Strait as China threat looms ever closer

China is attempting to establish a “new normal” across the Taiwan Strait, eroding self-ruled Taiwan’s territorial control and increasing the threat of a strike with each military sortie, officials and analysts say. Beijing has ramped up military maneuvers in the 110-mile (180-kilometer) wide stretch of water that separates Taiwan from mainland China — and the […]

A great fire destroyed Rome for six days in the summer of AD 64. Famous Roman historian of that time, Tacitus, recorded that 70 percent of the city was destroyed and half of the city’s residents were displaced.
