#TBT to my trip to Cuba in early 2016. 🇨🇺 These are empty flag poles across from the U.S. Embassy. They were put up in the 1960s, as Castro led Cuba into communism, to block our embassy where we would post messages to the Cuban people. They would fly all Cuban flags to block the view of our embassy and our anti-communism messages. . . . #cuba #habana #exploremore #history #havana #usembassy #travel #1960s #communism

This is probably one of my favorite places I have visited. It is well worth the dirt road travel to step back in time for a while. Check out the latest blog to see where it is.

#Picasso #Guernica (recreated) is a mural-sized oil #painting on canvas by Spanish artist  #PabloPicasso completed in June 1937 at his home on Rue des Grands Augustins, in #Paris. The painting, which uses a palette of gray, black, and white, is regarded by many art critics as one of the most moving and powerful #anti-war paintings in #history. Standing at 3.49 meters (11 ft 5 in) tall and 7.76 meters (25 ft 6 in) wide, the large #mural shows the suffering of #people wrenched by violence and #chaos. Prominent in the composition are a gored horse, a bull, and flames. The painting was created in response to the  #bombing of Guernica, a Basque Country village in northern  #Spain by Nazi German and Fascist Italian warplanes at the request of the Spanish Nationalists. Upon completion, Guernica was exhibited at the Spanish display at the Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne (Paris International #Exposition ) in the 1937 World's Fair in Paris and then at other venues around the world. The touring exhibition was used to raise funds for Spanish war relief. The painting became #famous and widely acclaimed, and it helped bring worldwide attention to the Spanish #CivilWar.

Mini Jukebox @ Gabby's on Younge, across the street from For The Win Cafe(which is a great spot to checkout). First time seeing one of these and I definitely want one now 😁.

The Papal Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican (Italian: Basilica Papale di San Pietro in Vaticano), is an Italian Renaissance church in Vatican City, the papal enclave within the city of Rome. Designed principally by Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini, St. Peter's is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and one of the largest churches in the world. While it is neither the mother church of the Catholic Church nor the cathedral of the Diocese of Rome, St. Peter's is regarded as one of the holiest Catholic shrines. It has been described as "holding a unique position in the Christian world" and as "the greatest of all churches of Christendom". There has been a church on this site since the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great. Construction of the present basilica, which would replace Old St. Peter's Basilica from the 4th century AD, began on 18 April 1506 and was completed on 18 November 1626. St. Peter's is famous as a place of pilgrimage and for its liturgical functions. St. Peter's has many historical associations, with the Early Christian Church, the Papacy, the Protestant Reformation and Catholic Counter-reformation and numerous artists, especially Michelangelo. St. Peter's is one of the four churches in the world that hold the rank of Major Basilica, all four of which are in Rome. Contrary to popular misconception, it is not a cathedral because it is not the seat of a bishop; the Cathedra of the Pope as Bishop of Rome is in the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran. #BeautifulRome 🏰 #rome #italy #instadaily #instapic #instagra #photooftheday #instagood #pretty #photography #panasonic #gh4 #cloudformations #clouds #art #travelphotography #traveling #travel #instagramers #amazing #picoftheday #tb #beautifulcity #beautiful #culture #city #urbanexploration #urbanphotography #history #art

"When the Abbey is closed and dark, it’s so peaceful with just the chandeliers illuminating the tall columns and vaulted ceilings. Yet you can feel the weight of all those years the Abbey has stood, just pressing down on you. And the countless others that have been here before you." The Project Manager, Kevin. Hidden to the public for over 700 years, the Abbey’s medieval Triforium will host the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Galleries, an internal gallery that runs 70 feet above the floor of the Abbey. As part of the project a new tower is being constructed that will take visitors up to the Galleries and provide magnificent views out across the Abbey. A significant amount has already been raised towards the cost of the new tower and Galleries but we are giving the public a change to contribute to this exciting new project - for £100 you can sponsor a pane of glass in the new tower. Follow our #makehistory campaign and find out how you can be a part of the exciting new chapter in our Abbey's history. #makehistory #westminsterabbey #westminster #london #history #heritage #architecture #construction #donate #visitlondon #culture #london

The colourful mosaic steps of Escadaria Selarón - 215 steps decorated by Chilean-born artist Jorge Selarón as his 'tribute to the Brazilian people'. Started in 1990, he originally only used green, yellow and blue coloured tiles in honour of the Brazilian flag, but the steps now include tiles donated from over 60 countries #escadariaselaron #selaronsteps #riodejaneiro #brazil #southamerica #educationthroughinstagram #facts #photography #photooftheday #art #mosaic #colour #history #travel #tourist #gapyear
