Max and I have just about moved in to this van with mum and dad. It's been such a cosy heaven when the temperatures drop overnight. I'm not sure how we're going to manage when they leave 😨 They also have our coffees ready as soon as we walk down the ladder of our RTT in the morning 🙏
Believe it or not, before moving to the UK I have never heard about the term "Caucasian". I remember the first time when someone told me that I am Caucasian, and remember the first time I actually ticked Caucasian in some sort of form at the doctor because I had to. I couldn't understand how can I be Caucasian if I am not from Caucasus region - area shared by South Russia, Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. It is the same shocking as hearing someone calling themselves Latvian when they are not...weird right? I even learned about the man who created this term that was obsessed with Georgian skulls and thought that Georgian is the most perfect race and his classification of races was for some reason accepted worldwide. But even after reading about it I still don't understand why this term exists and why all white people are called caucasian now. Can someone shed a light on this?

The End of the World 🌎 aka Finisterre. This place on the Atlantic coast of Galicia is the final destination for many pilgrims after reaching Santiago. The Romans believed it to be the end of the known world, hence its name ("end of earth"). The coast is also called "Costa da Morte" (coast of death) because of the many shipwrecks and storms that used to happen here. As a purifying ritual, pilgrims traditionally burn a piece of their clothing or boots here, a way to mark a new beginning after the end of the Camino.
Сборник статей Бориса Гройса – это одна из тех лучших работ, что случались в моей жизни. Мне очень близка его точка зрения касательно современного искусства и осмысления музейного феномена. Читать его сродни чему-то уютному, тёплому и родному. А минималистичное оформление самой книги доставляет неимоверное удовольствие.🐾
