Bucharest my home town - University square
Bucharest my home town - University square
Romania - view from the hotel.
It is considered the heart of the city and a site that witnessed many of Romanian political movements in the last century. the Romanian national TV uses this images of this place several times day in a kind of "reset image"

from the Wikipedia:

University Square (RomanianPiaţa Universităţii) is located in downtown Bucharest, near the University of Bucharest. It is served by Universitate metro station.

Four statues can be found in the University Square, in front of the University; they depict Ion Heliade Rădulescu (1879), Michael the Brave (1874), Gheorghe Lazăr (1889) and Spiru Haret (1932). There are plans to for a massive statue, measuring at least 20 meters, of Constantin Cristocea, one of the city's finest philanthropists, to be erected in the central roundabout.

The square was the site of the 1990 Golaniad, a peaceful student protest against the ex-communists in the Romanian government. The demonstrations ended violently when miners from the Jiu Valley were called in by president Ion Iliescu to restore order in Bucharest (see: Mineriad).

The Ion Luca Caragiale Bucharest National Theatre and the Intercontinental Hotel (one of the tallest buildings in Bucharest) are also located near University Square.

University Square marks the northeastern boundary of the Old Center of Bucharest.

mein Berlin - two Euro books in Berlin
mein Berlin - two Euro books in Berlin. Germany.

In front of the Humboldt University a fair of old books attracts students and many passerby.
It is so remarkable that some 100m. from this place (in the Babel square) during the mid 30's the Nazis were burning books as a prelude to burning people several years later-on.
Today the Berlin people are keeping alive the memory of the history and the victims of the Nazi regime with the hope that things shall not be forgotten and repeated.

Paris the city of lights - le grand general
Paris - France

The scene represents the statue of the General de Gaulle, considered during the period from the end of WARII until the late 60's as the most prominent and influential figure in the French politics and in Europe in general.
After hid disappearance from the political scene many have questioned his place in the history, This pic puts de Gaulle in the perspective of this new re-evaluation, I believe.

good morning Vietnam - banana seller
Hanoi.
When visiting Vietnam the overall impression you get as a strong impact is the determination (and stubbornness) that characterizes the people in their day-by-day survival fight.
In this sense, I believe that the woman I "caught" in the Hanoi market trying to sell her bananas manages some-how to express this ...

mein Berlin - on the bridge
Oberbaum bridge. MY BERLIN - Germany

There are many cities in this world that I like to visit and enjoy every moment of my stay there. However, only very few cities might grant me this peculiar belief of feeling "at home".
Berlin is one of them and reasons for this are so many. My mother used to tell me lots of stories about her childhood in connection with this city that she visited quite often with her parents to "see family" (it happened around WWI). I still remember her impressions from the ZOO and the monumentality of the city. Many other points in my memory connect me to various stories "language/cultural" related, German being my maternal tongue. Unfortunately, the History developed in such a way that the German people has been mislead for so many years into a wrong and criminal way. Today all these matters belong to the past and, when in Berlin, I feel it's MY BERLIN as in the wonderful Reinhardt Mey song with the same title:

land of rising sun - sake in Tokyo
land of rising sun - sake in Tokyo
Japan - rice wine bottles. from the Wikipedia:

Sake (Japanese[sake]), also spelled saké (/ˈsɑːk/ SAH-kay US also /ˈsɑːki/ SAH-kee),[1][2] also referred to as a Japanese rice wine, is an alcoholic beverage made by fermenting rice that has been polished to remove the bran. Unlike wine, in which alcohol is produced by fermenting sugar that is naturally present in fruit, typically grapes, sake is produced by a brewing process more akin to that of beer, where starch is converted into sugars which ferment into alcohol.

The brewing process for sake differs from the process for beer in that, for beer, the conversion from starch to sugar and from sugar to alcohol occurs in two distinct steps. Like other rice wines, when sake is brewed, these conversions occur simultaneously. Furthermore, the alcohol content differs between sake, wine, and beer. Wine generally contains 9–16% ABV,[3] while most beer contains 3–9%, and undiluted sake contains 18–20% (although this is often lowered to about 15% by diluting with water prior to bottling).

In the Japanese language, the word "sake" (, "liquor", also pronounced shu) can refer to any alcoholic drink, while the beverage called "sake" in English is usually termed nihonshu (日本酒, "Japanese liquor"). Under Japanese liquor laws, sake is labelled with the word seishu (清酒, "clear liquor"), a synonym less commonly used in conversation.

In Japan, where it is the national beverage, sake is often served with special ceremony – gently warmed in a small earthenware or porcelain bottle called a tokkuri, and sipped from a small porcelain cup called a sakazuki
