You know what's more terrifying that a landslide?
The pebbles and small rocks which drops on your helmet and your motorcycle when traversing on these deadly hills.
Each time a rock falls on your head, your heart skips a beat. Your eye sight sharpens and all your muscles go into flight mode.
Each time a rock falls, you think you're going to die. Landslides are unpredictable in this part of the world. It doesn't drop, it bloody pours.
Definitely not for the faint hearted.

Coconuts are one of my favourite fruits, so when I saw the tree I had to give thanks! 🔹Coconut Oil

<<<< ON STAGE WITH ANTON BATAGOV >>>>
For over 20 years Anton Batagov has been “one of the most significant and unusual figures of Russian contemporary music” (Newsweek, Russian edition, 1997). A little while ago I had the incredible opportunity to be ON STAGE with him in Moscow.
Sorry to disappoint you, but you are not about to find out that I am talented at anything, much less to the point of performing with a world renowned pianist and composer. But the story is no less interesting!
After a 12-year hiatus from performing in public, since 2009 when he holds a concert, especially in his native Moscow, he and his wife invite a selected group of friends to the concert and give some of them the unique opportunity to sit right on stage with the Maestro. This is what he asks the organisers, so that his friends, and his friends’ friends can spare the cost of the ticket and instead, if and how much they can, help out with the other passion of Anton Bagatov, which is an animal shelter in Russia. He and his wife actively volunteer and talk about their involvement with the project at the end of his concerts. Donations can also be made on-line, but at this time the page where to help out (and the whole shelter web-site) is only in Russian. I am sure Google Translate will help you get the gist of it.
In his philosophy (he’s a post-minimalist composer), music is almost akin to meditation and it should be experience with as little distraction as possible. That is why his concerts are held in almost pitch-black dark. The blackness is full except from the faint lights over the score and the atmosphere is almost magical. All the more so if you experience it from such an unusual place, sitting on a pillow on the stage wooden boards.
My photo tip is NOT to take picture at classical music concerts. Not ever. Just don’t do it. Do as I say, don’t do as I do. But if you really, really, truly, absolutely can’t help it and have to take a picture, at least follow these rules:...-> CONTINUE READING THE ARTICLE ON THE BLOG'S PAGE WWW.RTTL.ME (USE ACTIVE LINK IN THE PROFILE)
