<![CDATA[Marsaxlokk Luzzu]]> http://www.globitude.com/picture/9753/info http://www.globitude.com/picture/9753/info image

Marsaxlokk is a traditional fishing village located in the south-eastern part of Malta. A luzzu (pronounced like lwtsw in Maltese) is a traditional fishing boat from the Maltese islands. They are brightly painted in shades of yellow, red, green and blue, and the bow is normally pointed with a pair of eyes. These eyes may be the modern survival of an ancient Phoenician custom (also practiced by the ancient Greeks); they are sometimes (and probably inaccurately) referred to as the Eye of Horus or of Osiris.

Marsaxlokk is a traditional fishing village located in the south-eastern part of Malta. Most of Malta's fish supplies are caught by fishermen coming from this port. Swordfish, tuna, and the popular 'lampuki' are caught in abundance between spring and late autumn. On weekdays, the catch is taken to the fish-market in Valletta, but on Sundays fish is retailed by fishermen in the open on the quay.

Karl?v most (Charles Bridge) in Prague, with the Old Town (Staré M?sto) in the background. Its construction started in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV, and finished in the beginning of the 15th century. As the only means of crossing the river Vltava (Moldau) until 1841, the Charles Bridge was the most important connection between Prague Castle and the city's Old Town and adjacent areas. This "solid-land" connection made Prague important as a trade route between Eastern and Western Europe. The bridge was originally called the Stone Bridge (Kamenný most) or the Prague Bridge (Pražský most) but has been the "Charles Bridge" since 1870. The bridge is 621 meters long and nearly 10 meters wide, resting on 16 arches shielded by ice guards. It is protected by three bridge towers, two of them on the Lesser Quarter side and the third one on the Old Town side. The Old Town bridge tower is often considered to be one of the most astonishing civil gothic-style buildings in the world. The bridge is decorated by a continuous alley of 30 statues and statuaries, most of them baroque-style, originally erected around 1700 but now all replaced by replicas.

The Prague Astronomical Clock is a medieval astronomical installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest one still working. The clock is mounted on the southern wall of Old Town City Hall in the Old Town Square. The clock mechanism itself is composed of three main components: the astronomical dial, representing the position of the Sun and Moon in the sky and displaying various astronomical details; "The Walk of the Apostles", a clockwork hourly show of figures of the Apostles and other moving sculptures—notably a figure of Death (represented by a skeleton) striking the time; and a calendar dial with medallions representing the months.

It runs from Haugastøl via Finse to Myrdal station and down to Flåm by the Sognefjord. The road is named after the 'rallar' or navvies, the railway construction workers. The road is now a popular bicycle road. Every year, in the short season from July to September, over 20000 cyclists travel the route. Finse is an area in the Ulvik municipality of Hordaland, Norway. The railway station at Finse (Finse Station) on the Bergensbanen at 1,222m is the highest station on the entire Norwegian railway system.

The railway station at Finse (Finse Station) on the Bergensbanen at 1,222m is the highest station on the entire Norwegian railway system. Since there are no (public) roads to Finse, the railway provides the sole means of transportation to and from Finse. During summer, however, it is possible to walk or cycle to Finse. The gravel road in the picture is the Rallarvegen, a construction road built from 1902 to 1904 in connection with the construction of the Bergensbanen railline. It runs from Haugastøl via Finse to Myrdal station and down to Flåm by the Sognefjord. The road is named after the 'rallar' or navvies, the railway construction workers. The road is now a popular bicycle road. Every year, in the short season from July to September, over 20000 cyclists travel the route. Finse, July 2011
