A glass of wine from La Rioja

I am Susana and I live in the north of Spain, in a place called La Rioja. Although it’s the smallest region in Spain. This land is famous because there are good wine and olive oil. The most famous wine is the red one.

red wine There are many different wines according to their quality, taste, and prices. The grapes are the main ingredients, but the technique is important too. In every season, the grapes juices must be kept in wood recipients for many years.

The experience of grape growers and winemakers has resulted in a selection of those grape varieties that best adapt to the region’s climate and soils, producing wine of the highest quality. Today the blend is usually dominated by Viura, also known as Macabeo, Malvasía for oak-aged styles, and white Garnacha in small doses. Other blends permitted include Tempranillo, Maturana, Verdejo, and Turruntés.

In the past, it was not uncommon for some brands to age their red wines for 15-20 years or even more before their release. One notable example of this is Marqués de Murrieta which release its 1942 vintage Gran Reserva in 1983 after 41 years of aging. Today most bodegas have shifted their winemaking focus to wines that are ready to drink sooner with the top wines typically aging for 4-8 years prior to release though some traditionalist still age longer. The typical bodega owns anywhere from 10.000 to 40.000 oak barrels. There is a wealth of historic producers, many of whom have been making wine for centuries, but recently the region has seen the arrival of a new wave of ultra-modern bodegas that are pushing the boundaries and taking the wines to even greater heights.

Turkish Egg Dish: MENEMEN

Hi, it’s Ezgi from Turkey.  Today I’ll give you a traditional dish recipe of Menemen.

Menemen is an extremely tasty breakfast, lunch or dinner recipe. You might have heard about the world-famous Turkish breakfast, which consists of several appetizer-like foods. Mostly, we eat Menemen at breakfast but whenever we want to eat something delicious and easy to cook in that time we prefer for lunch or dinner. It’s a great combination of tomatoes, green peppers, and eggs which are dancing in a pan and to cook is very simple. These are the main elements of Menemen. But I like to eat with onion and cheese as well. There was a huge discussion about “Should we add onion into Menemen or not?” 50% said Yes and 50% said No. So, even Turkish people divided into two parts about it. But I think onion gives great taste and makes it even more delicious. So you are a painter and the pan is your canvas whatever you like just put into the pan and create your special, tasty, yummy dish. Oh my god, even imagining makes me hungry.

Chakras Applied to Life

Hey, it’s Ezgi. Today is time to be aware of negative thoughts which are affecting our life very badly.

Let’s start!

Being happy is not about money, life quality or other tangible things it is all about how to find happiness inside you and around you. Ah, of course, crying in a Range Rover would be more fun.

Maybe you’ve never heard about this or you know just a little so be ready I am taking you to this magic world of Chakras.

Chakra means 'wheel' in Sanskrit

The chakra system originated in India between 1500 and 500 BC in the oldest text called the Vedas. Knowledge of the chakra system was passed down through an oral tradition by the Indo-European people. The Chakra system was traditionally an Eastern philosophy until Western authors started resonating with the idea and wrote about the chakras, expanding upon the older texts and making the knowledge more accessible.

Venezuela: The little Venice

What if we talk about a place with the best weather in the hole world, a place where you can easily go through big cold mountains to warmest rivers and beaches, with desserts and snowfields just a few kilometers between. All this surrounded by the kindest people you can meet. Sure you’re thinking about Eden, but no. We are talking about Venezuela. A true piece of heaven sharing the best of the Caribbean and SouthAmerica.

It´s very easy for me to talk about my country because their beauty is more clear for me now that I’m not living there since two years ago. From the outside is just amazing how you do can admire and appreciate the beauty of your own place.

Its name comes from Cristobal Colon third travel, and he saw this kind of autochthons houses in the middle of the lake and remembered him Venice in Italy, so he decided to call this new place the little Venice “Venezuela”.
