👨🏼🎓153 г. до н.э. стал годом рождения бумаги. Бумагу варили из волокон бамбука и листьев шелковицы. Листы получались плотными и очень жесткими. Их трудно было нарезать. И только в 19 столетии появились машины-автоматы для изготовления бумаги 📜🤓 #omskinterpress#history_wednesday
Today, Malta served us with grumpy clouds and a bit of rain so I thought I'd make something of the occasion. With homemade pasta in my bag, I went to explore Mdina. An old capital of Malta also known as a medieval city "The Silent City of Malta" or "Citta Notabile". Due to different rulers and purposes of Mdina throughout years of 4000 the city has apparently been given many different names. 'Oh my' have I come to learn that Malta holds a very rich history to its country. Multiple influencers have shaped Malta, which makes it a pretty interesting country to learn about and see. In 218 B.C. Malta was dominated by the Romans, and in 870 the country was occupied by the Arabs for not to mention French and English occupation although this was much later (1798-1979) but still. Apparently, Britain pretty quickly took Malta from the French and has influenced Malta through more than 100 years from what I can calculate. All these strong influences is why, as I have also been told by a Maltese inhabitant that if one's not born in Malta or originally from here, it is unlikely that he or she will be able to learn the language. Malta/Maltese has, as the above should portray, been under a lot of influence by many strong rulers, and I can personally vow that going to Malta for the purpose of learning more about well-kept historic epochs, culture or taking beautiful pictures is worth the visit.
