MERHABA 2 0 1 1

-

Athena from the 2011 Pirelli Calendar,
created by Karl Lagerfeld,
Greco-Roman theme
'Mythology'


What makes it gorgeous is not only what I filled in by my own experience and packed into this year 2010, but what I could not. I think there is no any better expression in any language than merhaba.
Merhaba is a reason that I have a lot to look forward TO. Merhaba is a reason to BE. Merhaba is hello. Happy New Year 2 0 1 1.

  14. Hi Nihal! I'm glad you've appreciated both the puppets and the cars in my photos! As for the cars, of course they are absolutely "casual": yes, only B-segment cars (no limousines!!) in the street there :-)
    Have a very pleasant evening!

  16. Hello Nihal! I would have liked to read your opinion about "Where is politics going?"...
    ;-)
    Happy Sunday!

  17. Thanks for your pleasant thoughts on politics, Nihal. I agree with you: "nulla è cambiato". A tangible effective changement seems to be a utopia, in these years and I think for the future as well.
    Happy Sunday evening :-)

  18. Bingo!... Last Sunday you had to vote for the political elections and we had to vote for the referendums!
    Happy Tuesday, Nihal :-)

  19. Nihal, Sunday's referendum in Italy marks the first time the country's 50 percent referendum quorum has been reached since 1995 (exactly, it was 57%).
    It's really interesting to hear of the advertisments about Turchia decorating 80 Torinese taxis, and of the flights to Torino of the Turkish Airlines. As soon as I see one of those taxis, I'll photograph it and make a post, with pleasure :-)
    Have a pleasant evening!

  20. Hi Nihal!
    Yes, "NOTAV day" in the Susa Valley today. The NOTAV protest is strong and the struggle is hard, but in spite of all that the construction works of the railway high-speed Turin-Lyon have started.

    Happy Sunday evening :-)
