Picture of the day and Movie for the weekend.

Aloha EC ladies and gentlemen!

When was the last time you enjoyed a sunset or a dawn? (which one do you prefer?)

A beautiful and easy thing to do, isn't it?
It's one of these little things we all can do to bring us a smile. And it just takes few minutes! A short break from our super-busy-daily-routine-full-of-important-things-to-do :P

Anyway, apart from bothering you with sunsets and dawns talk, I wanna share a very interesting documentary film that was released just few days ago (October 21) 

Before the Flood is a movie made by National Geographic with Leonardo DiCaprio in a three-year journey exploring the subject of climate change ---yes, Hollywood stars are useful for helping to spread this message, at least :P 

I know the topic might be not so 'appealing' for some people, but it really worth... and it's a movie not so 'hard' to watch since it has been made for mass comsuption "in an effort to inform and spur the public into action."

You can watch the full documentary online because it's already available on different platforms. But you don't even need to look for it because I'm sharing it here:

If youtube is not available in your country, you can also find the full movie in the National Geographic Channel (here: http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/before-the-flood/videos/befor...) And also here: http://fmovies.to/film/before-the-flood.4qzlk/zx1mnl (you can see the english subtitles clicking on cc)


Oh and btw! This can be also like a listening skills practice to improve your English, so you're killing two birds with one stone! :P

Thanks for reading and... don't forget to take a break for enjoying a sunset or a dawn one of these days ;)

Have a nice weekend.

Eva! Oh my! How awesomely sweet you can be!! ^_^

I agree with you, the sunsets & sunrises near the sea are really special. 

You've remarked some very interesting lines, and I totally agree with you. The problem is really serious but mass media and governments have lot of business and interests so they don't really want to promote any change or to inform about it properly. But it so necessary a change in our lifestyles. If at least we just had a good educational programm for ecological awareness in every school... That would be something. But we don't even have that, so we should 'educate' ourselves. It is our responsibility as well.

Thanks a lot for your super nice words and all your support. You can't imagine how much I appreciate it...

Lot of hugs!

Dear Mary, I like your picture of the day.

Back home Our sunrise will be before 5.30. am. I am from India's land end town and the tip of the peninsular where the Bay of Bengal, the Indian ocean and the Arabian sea meet. Our Sunrise is a breathtaking moment and visitors come to my town and stayed overnight to see the early sunrise.

Now I am in London.Where you can see sun only in Summer days properly. Grey sky and dull days half of the year. 

Thank you Mary, I will watch the video tonight and comment, later about it.

Thanks for your sweet comment ^_^

Dear Mary, watching sunrise and sunset sitting next to see or behind a mountain would be amazing, so I love to watch them in nature. Thanks for sharing your interesting pictures or clips or movies with us.

Luci! haha nah, I'm not a party animal! And the times I've done that in my teen days I was feeling too sleepy to care about dawns! :D

Batuhan, nice to see you around again.
Yeah, Luci has 2 cute reasons to wake up very early. And yes, I've had the chance to enjoy sunsets in Firenzi/Florence. They are really nice, indeed :)

Thanks for dropping by!

It is about the house of old people. In our society, we take our old mother or father there. We are able to support them but still, we take them there to spend the rest of their life. They did their best to raise us and to bring us to the society.…Continue
