A bit of history for you.. You see this guy here, he's looking over a part of the plaza where a tower once stood. The tower used to lean though and the locals who worked around it were worried it might fall on them one day so it was taken down piece by piece. Now there's a painting of it between the buildings which the statue looks directly at.
Imagine if the tower was still there though, maybe Zaragoza might have been as popular as Pisa! 🇪🇸🤔 #SpainCities
“That outfit is a very traditional Persian dress…people don’t really wear that these days except for in more of the remote regions...Maybe 100 years ago you’d find that a lot more common, but now it’s only [worn by] small groups.”

Legendary Haitian Guitarist, Dadou Pasquet
By Rene Devis
Dadou Pasquet is one of the most exciting and legendary Haitian musicians of the 21th century. In the mid 60's he began a musical career with a New York based Band called, "Tropicale". He later joined Tabou Combo where he brilliantly displayed his skills as one of the most renowned guitarist in the world of Haitian music.
With the emergence of Magnum band in 1976, Dadou Pasquet and his brother, Tico Pasquet, created a unique sound in Konpa that blends elements of Haitian root, jazz, pop, and soul filled Creole music. Some of their most famous works include" Paka Pala", "Ashadei", " Fierte", " Moun Sa", "Pike Devan"," Severite", and my personal favorite, "Courage". After 27 years in the business, Magnum band built a musical legacy that has influenced many musicians of our generation. Today Magnum band is still performing strong, and sounds just as good now as it did then. As a testimony to their faith and endurance in the long journey in the Haitian music industry, Magnum Band released their 32 second album in May 2001 just before they travel to Paris to perform in one of the world's most acclaimed musical stage, Zenith. This summer( 2003) you can look forward to Dadou's solo project " Dadou Pasquest en Troubadour, a collection of Magnum Band's classic tunes.
For the better part of the past two decades, Magnum band and Dadou Pasquet have been gracing stages in Haiti, and abroad. Over the years, this combination has come to represent one of the highest standard in Konpa music, and Magnum has produced recordings that stand today as the pinnacle of Konpa music. Dadou Pasquet, the legendary musician behind Magnum band, is one of the few special .... #magnumband#dadoupasquet#haitianmusic#hmi#music#history#haiti#creolemusic

Medieval Architecture in #Surrey . Here is a view of the gatehouse, with the path ahead leading to the drawbridge, the entrance to the Keep. @englishheritage "on the crest of a hill overlooking the town of Farnham are the impressive motte and 'shell keep' of a castle founded in 1138 by Henry of Blois, Bishop of Winchester and brother of King Stephen. In medieval times the diocese of Winchester was the richest in England, and Farnham was a favourite residence of the bishops.

Enforcement of prohibition laws proved extremely difficult. Many Americans did not agree with the decade long prohibition. Not only were laws being flaunted openly, organized crime groups were becoming more and more involved in all phases of the liquor business. Cartoonist Clifford Berryman spoofs the efforts of the Federal Law Enforcement Commission as it readied its first annual report to the Congress. Their main conclusion: "We find something must be done."
