Orange Fever is (almost) over

Originally posted on indahs: travel story & photography:

FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil celebrated in the Netherlands in the form of the Orange Fever (Dutch: de oranjekoorts). It is mainly to support the Dutch National Football Team – sometimes being called as Oranje or The Flying Dutchmen.  A dear friend who has been living in the Netherlands longer than I do, has posted interesting articles on Orange Fever in the Netherlands each time the Dutch football team moves further to the next level of the competition: Chez Lorraine’s Orange Fever Part 1, Orange Fever Part 2, Orange Fever Part 3. Her posts are interesting to read, they are especially on the escalating orange fever whenever the Dutch Team won a match.

The orange fever is also celebrated in Rotterdam. Some houses are decorated with orange ornaments and Dutch flags to support the Dutch Team in the World Cup. Not only houses, the cars…

Peace.

Quiet Stillness.

Gray sky.

Slight wind.

Thoughts project to a time when life was harder.

A time when the path was lost.

When the leader was not evident.

I am happy that those days are gone.

Poof!

Disintegrated.

Melted away.

The truly worthless events they were.

Well – not exactly worthless.

It has all been a journey.

I am grateful for every last destination along the way.

A small raindrop.

No worry.

I am sitting under an umbrella.

The same umbrella that allowed me to weather every storm along the way.

Hurricanes,

Earthquakes,

Floods,

Beatings.

No pain.

I can turn off the switch that allows me to feel it.

Go ahead -

Hit me harder.

I won’t feel it.

Not now anyway.

Maybe later.

Maybe 30 years later.

What’s that?

You say maybe you would prefer not to remember?

It is okay.

It is time to remember.

All you…

16 Bean, Leek, and Kielbasa Soup ~ From Vegetate, Vegan Cooking and Food Blog“I used to help my granddaddy make sausage. He would mix it up in a cleaned-out washtub with his hands, no gloves. Man, if we did anything like that today, they would jack the jail up and throw us under it.”Jimmy Dean

Don’t worry, we would never use Jimmy Dean sausages. We made this soup with yummy vegan Kielbasa, of course!

This hearty and satisfying stew was made from 16 types of dried beans (available at grocery stores as “16 Bean Soup Mix”), carrots, celery, onions, red wine, thyme, celery seed, Creole seasoning, garlic, leeks, green beans, beer, store-bought vegan kielbasa, and more! The recipe includes instructions for how to make this on the stove or in a slow cooker. We used our slow cooker and this turned out wonderfully. This is a great lunch recipe that goes really well with a vegan grilled cheese sandwich! The…

Originally posted on indahs: travel story & photography:

Taken in Raja Ampat (West Papua, Indonesia). When we found him, he was completely ignoring us – we were four scuba divers back then. I guess he was starving or he did not think we would steal his food. It was fun to watch him eating. At the same time I was rather glad that he did not feel threatened by us.

This post is also to fulfill my promise to Images by T. Dashfield who loves turtle! :) Yup, we saw turtle(s) during the diving and this one is very special :)

In those old times of war and blight
Faces turned from crimes of day and night
Chose not to see our world die behind lie on lie
When those fiery riders came that final time, to forever shield the light
Falling scales of apathy, too late forced truth to every shuttered eye
It was too late to rebel. Too late to fight

She rose from the ashes after those fire years. That warrior lord
When the Earth could take no more
She allowed no further crime to wound the face of God
She called her hidden armies, so ridiculed before
They came from their secret places, and their places of helpless war
To protect the weak and the voiceless with swords that cut and burned. Words no more

Now we see those wrongs that we unthinking wrought
Those unseen evils of greed, and stolen beauty bought
Shame-filled tears too late…

Wayag Islands, the Icon of Raja Ampat

Originally posted on indahs: travel story & photography:

Most of Raja Ampat’s advertising shows the picture of Wayag Islands. This archipelago is without doubt an excellence choice to be the icon of Raja Ampat (West Papua, Indonesia). Wayag archipelago is a cluster of uninhabited small islands. They are stunningly scattered like a maze above the crystal blue seawater. Magnificent view! Wayag is definitely the most beautiful area that we visited during our diving holiday in Raja Ampat.

We spent two nights in Wayag, arriving in late afternoon after heavy storm and waves to reach the islands. Our liveaboard boat had problem with its generator and we did not have electricity and fresh water for half day. It was terrible, however the splendid view of Wayag islands made up for it.

We climbed to the peak of Wayag to see the archipelago up of the hill. It was not easy since the hill formed of rocks inclining almost 90…

To paraphrase President Obama's speech on 12/4/13 to the Center For American Progress: Our strength is grounded in our individuals, civic, religious and business leaders working and making things happen. But government can't stand on the sidelines; it can and should refocus our energies on building an economy that grows for everybody. I remain confident that the future still looks brighter than the past.
