National Stone Centre, England - 31st August 2010

By: miapearl

Today, we are making our way home, but have stopped off at the National Stone Centre near Matlock.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7SeRuHFUI/AAAAAAAACI0/dI-sfQNjIvw/stonelint1.jpg
There is an exhibition on the story of stone (and rock...). This is part of a tectonic display - I'm on a wrench fault.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7Se4MWK6I/AAAAAAAACI4/SDJIctAuolw/stonelint2.jpg
Here are some igneous rocks containing lime - tufa, chalk, and oolithic limestone.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7S8j2qKBI/AAAAAAAACLE/rnHoLsn2pLE/stonederbs1.jpg
The exhibition looks at the geology of the British Isles, and the way stone/rock has been used.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7SfRiFiEI/AAAAAAAACI8/Kaju5S3vOEo/s512/stonelint3.jpg
There are highland areas
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7SgFgt2uI/AAAAAAAACJA/-VakAuQJjkk/s512/stonelint4.jpg
The Normans used a lot of stone in building castles and churches.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7Sgi2F27I/AAAAAAAACJE/TwM_m1R2kfQ/s512/stonelint5.jpg
Stone has played an important part in the countryside, and farming - stone walls, millstones, lime....
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7S9DdZxxI/AAAAAAAACLI/wfewQdIMi6g/s512/stonederbs2.jpg
A display looking at the processing of rock/stone.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7S90cvbzI/AAAAAAAACLM/MpGPYCmG230/stonederbs3.jpg
And different methods.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7S-iR348I/AAAAAAAACLQ/WiypqXMQ14I/s512/stonederbs4.jpg
Outside, there were steps made from different stones. I am sat on top of sandstone.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7S__e-QhI/AAAAAAAACLU/hLqSqtFIQuI/s512/stonederbs5.jpg
Outside, there was a rock trail to follow. There were some art made from stone on the trail.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7ShSQO7ZI/AAAAAAAACJI/rfWUAv8xHhQ/stonelint6.jpg
These stones have fossils.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7SjBPJ8qI/AAAAAAAACJQ/7LdwkJZ5tHU/s512/stonelint8.jpg
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7SiXgEVzI/AAAAAAAACJM/-AkLXAr-Oz0/stonelint8a.jpg
This is a dry stone wall, found in south Wales.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7SknwFRVI/AAAAAAAACJU/ZMQ9x7fGqAM/s512/stonelint9.jpg
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7SlZJZbLI/AAAAAAAACJY/gSsj_0sEvCY/s512/stonelint9a.jpg
This is a different dry stone wall, found in Skye, Scotland.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7SnNsNgNI/AAAAAAAACJg/xfy3ZP5hhpI/s512/stonelint10.jpg
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7SmDlX8RI/AAAAAAAACJc/WEnOyr1_z90/s512/stonelint10a.jpg
This is a Cheshire coursed wall.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7TAouyyvI/AAAAAAAACLY/ZkE2guteB8A/middle1.jpg
Nearby up a hill, is Middleton Top. There were railways running around this area. This is an engine house with boilers. The trains were probably pulled up the hill on cable.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7TCWVa8GI/AAAAAAAACLg/137r8K7OA2s/s512/middle3.jpg
Some track, not a lot, still remain.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TH7TBXBCSnI/AAAAAAAACLc/XR8evaw2L20/middle2.jpg
What a nice view.

Moscow, Russia - 22nd September 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello dear mummy!
I`m in Russia and it rains!
I had just short walk around to see where I`ll be living next month.

At the last photo you can see the monument of Saints Cyril and Methodius .

Quote:
Saints Cyril and Methodius were two Byzantine Greek brothers born in Thessaloniki in the 9th century. They became missionaries of Christianity among the Slavic peoples of Great Moravia and Pannonia. Through their work they influenced the cultural development of all Slavs, for which they received the title "Apostles to the Slavs". They are credited with devising the Glagolitic alphabet, the first alphabet used to transcribe the Old Church Slavonic language.

Moscow, Russia - 26th September 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Dear mummy!
Today we visited two special places!
1) Red Square - the heart of Moscow and the whole Russia, you can see me "under" it  :) There were many tourists there and we decided not to stay there too long.
2) Kolomenskoe -

Quote:
Kolomenskoye village was first mentioned in the testament of Ivan Kalita (1339). As the time went by, the village was developed as a favourite country estate of grand princes of Muscovy. The earliest extant structure is the exceptional Ascension church (1532), built in white stone to commemorate the long-awaited birth of an heir to the throne, the future Ivan the Terrible. Being the first stone church of tent-like variety, the uncanonical "White Column" (as it is sometimes referred to) marked a stunning rupture with the Byzantine tradition. [1]

The church stands up toward the sky from a low cross-shaped podklet (ground floor), then follows a prolonged chetverik (octagonal body) of the church, and then an octagonal tent, crowned by a tiny dome. The narrow pilasters on the sides of the chetverik, the arrow-shaped window frames, the three tiers of the kokoshniks and the quiet rhythm of stair arcades and open galleries underline the dynamic tendency of this masterpiece of the Russian architecture. The whole vertical composition is believed to have been borrowed from hipped roof-style wooden churches of the Russian North. Recognizing its outstanding value for humanity, UNESCO decided to inscribe the church on the World Heritage List in 1994.


And I looked so great at the fresh grass that I decided to make a photo-session :)

Moscow, Russia - 17th October 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello mum!
Today I`ll show you The Cathedral of Christ in Moscow:

Quote:
The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour or Khram Khrista Spasitelya is a Church in Moscow, Russia, on the bank of the Moskva River, a few blocks west of the Kremlin. With an overall height of 103 metres (338 ft), it is the tallest Orthodox church in the world.

It is really nice and big and near it there is a bridge with great view of Moscow!

Kremlin, Moscow, Russia - 17th October 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

One more photo before I leave Russia.
I`m standing on the stone with inscription "Minsk" - it is the capital of Belarus. There are many such stones along Kremlin`s wall with the names of cities which were involved in Second World War and in which people were fighting for the freedom.

Takamatsu, Japan - 2nd November 2010

By: hanachan

Hi mummy,
Last night I arrived in Japan.
Have you read Haruki Murakami's
"Kafka on the Shore"?
The 15 year-old Kafka run away from his father's house in Tokyo and found a safe shelter, a quiet, private library in Takamatsu.
I wonder where it is.
:rolleyes:

Itsukushima Shrine, Miyajima, Japan - 7th November 2010

By: hanachan

Miyajima is an island located off the coast of Hiroshima.
After rain, we visited Itsukushima Shrine, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
I saw a baby deer around the shrine. In Miyajima, many Sika Deers are wandering the streets. At night they go back to the mountain. 
;)
