"I showed typical pictures of Poland and they went like wooooww! I also learnt about this Rakhi festival. To be honest I didn't know anything about it, but now I know more!" -- Clap Traveller Aleksandra Bujak, an architecture student from Poznan, Poland, recounts her experience of conversing with Grade 4 students in India. | Sign up to be a Clap Traveller today (link in bio). 📷: @riteshuttamchandani
Non-Muslim Ramadan Diary, Day 26
Suhur: 2: 38am (Berlin), iftar: 9:25pm (London)
Yesterday was my last day in Germany. We didn't have to work so we had the whole day for ourselves. Whilst the Hungarian team went shopping I took the opportunity to venture in the famous Berlin Cathedral. It was built in te 15-16th century and serves as a vital centre for the Protestant church in Germany. Protestant reformation came about when the Catholic Church drifted away from the teachings of the Bible and was too focused on wealth and power. It actually has many similarities to Islam: Protestants claimed that one's acceptance to Heaven can't be bought with money, your sins will only be forgiven if it comes from an inner spiritual repentance. Luther, the inventor of the Reformation, also said that the only way to Heaven is through faith alone. Protestants also believe that God has the ultimate power in forgiving punishments not priests or the Pope and you don't need them either to connect to God because everybody has direct relationship with Him.
We are not so different after all, are we?

We are pleased to announce that Anthony Loewstedt, the advisor to ICDO, has recently published in the latest edition of the International Journal of Media and Cultural Politics. Loewstedt and Wiggins co-edited the special issue, with several of the papers originating at the annual Media Trends conference held in Vienna.
The journal places a strong emphasis on analyzing the politics of communication(s) and cultural processes. Also, it addresses cultural politics in their local, international and global dimensions, recognizing equally the importance of issues defined by their specific cultural geography and those that traverse cultures and nations.
Electrifying performance with beautiful light tech show from M.I.A last Sunday. This is when art/music/tech and raw messages collide to unite a diverse audience in an incredible way... everyone dancing in their seats and some invited up on stage. No fear, no security - just dancing & emotion on a sweaty evening in my hometown with my beautiful daughter. ❤️London #meltdown2017 @southbankcentre @miamatangi

Some would describe it as a mess. I call it a fantastic setting for amazing people to connect. It was PHENOMENAL! Obrigado!
Misty morning feels. I #lovemycity and took a little stroll this morning in the thick fog. I love every season here including the winters ❄️ (It doesn't snow but it's cold enough). What are you doing in your city today?
Wouldn't you LOVE to visit this tropical & colonial PARADISE??!! •
