#Taxi, #Montenegro, #Colombia

I took this taxi to a #CoffeePlantation between Montenegro and #Finlandia in the Colombian mountains. Vehicles here are mostly four-wheel-drive because rural roads are challenging to navigate. This section is in excellent condition but it's the exception.

#TempleOfHera, #Agrigento, #Italy

Agrigento is an expansive well-preserved Roman archaeological site in #Sicily. The site had been occupied for over three hundred years before the Romans settled there and named it Agrigentum. This Greek temple became the Temple of Juno (Guinone) in #Roman times.

#MtMachuPicchu, #MachuPicchu, #Peru

I had the good fortune to have Machu Picchu mostly to myself after closing time. This can be a deeply spiritual place once the scope and location are considered in a moment of silence. Not a place for a selfie, but a place for self awareness.

#PhotoStudio, #Montenegro, #Colombia

On my way to visit a coffee plantation I passed through the remote small town of Montenegro and was surprised to see that there is photo studio; something I'd expect in a more urban setting. Infrastructure in Colombia is poor - fly city to city then ride a donkey to town. While it's not as bad as that, these small town businesses have a #monopoly because of the #isolation.

#Cistern, #Lydae, Kapıdağ Peninsula, #Turkiye

This domed cistern dates to #Roman times and remains functional today. I stepped inside the doorway to the sounds of frogs croaking loudly. Rainwater filters through the dome and is collected in a cool shady shallow pool. On top of the distant hill you can see the ruins of two Roman mausoleums.

#Caravansary, #Konya, #Turkiye

Southern #Turkey has had overland trade routes prior to Greek times. In later years these inns, or caravanserai, were established by Byzantines for traders to gather to rest. This one is in the Anatolian steppes at a sinkhole that provides the only water in an arid area.

#StoneGate, #Zagreb, #Croatia

This tiny chapel is within the last remaining gate protecting the upper city of Zagreb. There was a fire here in the 17th century and the only thing to survive was an image of the Virgin Mary; the chapel has been a pilgrimage destination ever since. People come to light a candle and thank Mary for protecting them.
