And sometimes

all we can do is have Faith

Faith that what is happening will bring us to the place that we are supposed to be

Faith that no matter how much it hurts now

there was a reason

Faith that after the sun sets

it will rise again tomorrow

And…

We never really stand alone

Mother is draped in gray skies
Solid still is the silver lining
I remain quietly decyphering lies
Into a heart that’s ever pining

Plaza Vieja’s Planetarium

Plaza Vieja’s Planetarium

Originally posted on indahs: travel story & photography:

On my previous post of Cuba, Mesmerizing Havana Vieja, I mentioned Plaza Vieja as my favorite square in Havana. It was surrounded by colorful buildings with picturesque corridors and high ceiling. I could not help to take pictures of those corridors in several angles. The corridor and wall in front of the Planetarium in Plaza Vieja was perhaps the most interesting one. The ceiling, door and windows on the corridors painted in bright blue with antique looking lamps.

Meanwhile the wall of the planetarium has names of famous scientists. Are you familiar with their names?

The planetarium itself was small, built in 2010 with the Japanese funding. It has good air conditioning, a perfect place to escape from the afternoon heat and to learn our universe. Most of the explanation displays were in Spanish, I was forced to remember what I had learned from my short Spanish course.

Lonja de la SedaLonja de la Seda (Silk Exchange) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996. The Gothic style building was built in between 1480-ish to 1548. A beautiful addition to Valencia’s architecture. UNESCO described it as an exceptional secular building in late Gothic style with aesthetically unique decoration. The building was used as oil trading in the 15th century that later developed into maritime trading and the silk exchange. The building complex comprises four parts: the Tower, the Sea Consulate Rooms, the Orange-tree Patio and the Hall of Columns.

The Hall of Columns is perhaps the most astonishing area. It was built with amazing tall pillars and impressive designed ceiling.  The trading in the past happened in this hall – where merchants from all over Europe came and traded their goods. The exquisite hall was showing the power and wealth of the area during those period. The hall was called as well as Sala…

TO YOU ALONE PIANO
To you I give the whole me
For I believe that you’re my destiny
To you I offer every best of my heart
For I believe that you will value it

I want to share my whole life with you
For me to show that my love is true
I want to hold you in my arms
And sing you songs and lullabies

Loving you is what I want to do
Although I know that it can make me blue
Cause tears in my eyes has nothing to do
If I’m with a man that is you
