Is the cold war back

The cold war was the  nuclear war that never happend between USA and Soviet Union. It ends in 1990 with the end of Soviet Union.  But today it seems to come back.

A friend send me a link and ask for my opinion.

How the US Establishment Lies Through Its Teeth, for War Against Russia

I started to read that article. It looks like kind of russian propagande. A quick whois at the owner of the domain name strategic-culture.org show me that it belong to someone in Russia.

This article was kind of fearing. For example on the second paragraph we can read “Hillary Clinton clearly hated Russians and wanted to start a war against Russia ”

My first reaction reading this long text is that I should check if it is real or exagerated or not but I am not really journalist. Why sundently we are talking about war. When I was a child the world was divided in 2 zones. West and East (UDRSS) and the enemy was soviet. When I was in army our instructor always explain as example the enemy was soviet. Then few yeat later the wall of Berlin fall down and the world changed. No fear to receive a bomb from the east. (btw I never believe that it could happend) It was possible to go to east Germany, Slovakia etc…
I thought that the cold war was behind and reading your text apparently it is coming back. I think that Russians see americans as a danger but I never see as a real danger. I don’t believe.

It is interesting to see the perspective on the russian media and the western media talk about. On the russian media they fear that NATO attack russia.  On the western media, they fear that Russia attack ex sovietic countries like baltic counties or even Ukraine.

On the russian mediy the news communicate a real fear of war. On the western media that fear is not as height.

Nick Vujici in Ukraine

Nick Vujicic, the remarkable evangelist born with no arms and no legs, was part of a massive outreach in Ukraine in which 400,000 surrendered to Christ as their Lord and Savior.

“The biggest event that our team at Life Without Limbs has seen and maybe the largest event ever in Europe – 800,000 people in the streets of Kiev Ukraine!” Nick reported on Facebook Oct. 17th.

Vujicic, 33, was born without arms or legs and was given no medical reason for his condition. On the ministry’s website, he explains, “It’s been said that doors open to a man without arms and legs much more easily than to anyone else, we thank God for providing that privilege. I’ve been invited into very unexpected places to share about my faith in Jesus Christ and literally millions have responded.”

Liguria

Holiday is a time to forget the time. The goal is rest and doing nothing. Having a change of the daily routine. I have been to Liguria in North Italy when mountain drops directly into the sea.


During this period we even can be bored. One day has no 24 hours but a variable duration sometimes more and sometimes less. I like discovering a new region and something new. And the language is also a change when we don’t understand the local language.

The choosen region this year was Liguria in Italy. It is simple the continuation of the french mediteranean cost. Alps drops verticaly in the sea and this combination mountain and sea give such beauty.

Here are some photos.

World’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge opens in Switzerland

Switzerland has opened the world’s longest suspension footbridge. It is 494 meters long.

The bridge is suspended between 1,600 meters and 2,200 meters above sea level. It is only 65 centimeters wide and goes as high as 85 meters above the ground.

Hikers, within sight of the famed mountain, the Matterhorn, and the Bernese Alps, can cross it in about 10 minutes

The bridge crosses the deepest-cut valley in Switzerland. Hikers can look down onto it through grates in the bridge.

Without the bridge, the journey previously took up to four hours.

According to Swiss reports, it took only 10 weeks to build the bridge. And the structure surpasses Germany’s “Titan-RT” as the world’s longest suspension footbridge. The “Titan-RT”, which opened last month, is just over 450 meters long. It crosses Germany’s highest reservoir, the Rappbode Dam.

The Swiss bridge is also longer than the so-called “footbridge in the sky.” This bridge, built in 2014, is part of the Sochi Sky Park in Russia. It spans 439 meters and includes observation platforms looking on the mountains and the Black Sea Coast.

Montreux in July

If you go from Lausanne, the motor way from Lausanne to Montreux is maybe the most beautiful motorway in the world. Lake, mountain, vineyard, tunnels and 20 mn later you are in Montreux. I want to invite you just walking at the lake promenade. Forget all and relax.

The walking path at the lake is a botanical garden with lot of plants and flowers. Stop and sit at the bench.



Montreux is situated at the extrem est side of Geneva lake. You can see french Alps
