Today’s Holiday:
Benin National Vodoun Day

Vodoun is an ancient, African, pantheistic religion. When it was brought to the Americas by African slaves, it was blended with elements of Christianity into what is known as “Voodoo.” The present African country of Benin, situated on the former kingdom of Dahomey, is known as a center of Vodoun culture. This day is celebrated throughout Benin with processions, Vodoun rituals, dances, and even an international film festival. The celebration’s central activity, however, is the re-enactment of the journey from the slave auction block in the center of town to the ships in the harbor. More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

  1. Din nou o catastrofă, inimaginabilă, ploaia cu bolovani și fluviile de noroi. Nu merita superba Californie așa ceva.Montecito parcă a trecut printr-o explozie nucleară. Și încă nu s-a terminat. Zona va rămâne deșert, căci oamenii nu vor putea înlătura pietrele nici într-o sută de ani.

      Avum câțiva ani multe clădiri au fost luate de apele Oceanului Pacific care surpă in continuu faleza…Servus Erwin!
