City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

Yes, the americans sometimes give us good things. They should keep the rest to themselves.

Peace for now and forever more.

The statue looks as though it is weeping, as well it should. Edwin, your comment makes me so sad; our government has made many mistakes and I, too, wish we did not export them. Yes, "peace for now and forever more."

I just visited The Centennial Exhibition of the Nobel Prize a few days ago, here in Singapore.


I saw Martin Luther photos and heard his famous words on recording!

He is/was a remarkable hero for us all, quite in the vein of Ghandi.

Is there a special connection between your town and the Reverend?

I've always been impressed with Dr. King's use of redemptive love and revolutionary non-violence in the Ghandian tradition.
He was certainly a strong voice for justice; and we'll never know how much he would have continued to influence had he not been assasinated.

Nice statue as well. Much better than the one they accidently made in the states a few years ago, dedicated to actor James Earl Jones; but it accidently said "Thank you James Earl Ray for Keeping the Dream Alive" Of course, Ray was the man who killed King.
