Solar Solution

Finally a solution for purifying dirty water for drinking. No fancy filters, no complex machinery, only using the nature and its law. We all knew this law. We all knew about cycle of water. The sun, which drives the water cycle, heats water in oceans and seas. Water evaporates and goes in to the atmosphere then comes back to earth as rain. Well this is what designers learned from. When the Mother Nature gives us clean water like this why we don’t use the same technique. Just think how it can be useful for people who have no access to clean drinking water.

Cologne Cathedral

Today I'd like to talk about Cologne Cathedral. It is one of the most attractive building. It has such mysterious look as if there is something untold and unfold about it.

Construction of Cologne Cathedral began in 1248 in Cologne Germany and took, with interruptions, until 1880 to complete.

This is a picture of the unfinished Cathedral in 1856
The cathedral is one of the world's largest churches. It is 144.5 metres long, 86.5 m wide and its towers are approximately 157 m tall.

The ground plan is in the shape of a Latin Cross, as is usual with Gothic cathedrals. It has two aisles on either side, which help to support one of the very highest Gothic vaults in the world.

The cathedral suffered seventy hits by aerial bombs during World War II. It did not collapse, but stood tall in an otherwise flattened city.

The repairs to the building were completed in 1956.

In 1996, the cathedral was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List of culturally important sites.

It's Freedom...

I finally started something for myself. Something that gives me hope. It keeps me alive. Now I can say whatever I think without hesitation. It's freedom...
