Getting The Most From Your Trip To Menorca

Getting The Most From Your Trip To Menorca

Menorca (also known as Minorca) - situated east of Mallorca - is one of Spain's own Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea. With a population of about 82 thousand Spanish-speaking people, you're sure to find a wide variety of interests to enjoy should you decide to travel here - especially on January 17. January 17 is a nationally celebrated day that marks when Alfonso III of Aragon conquered the island.

In fact, the history of this island is what makes it so interesting to outsiders, as it has changed ownership several times over the centuries, inevitably showing the architectural and art influences with each successive change of rulership. Of particular interest to traveling Americans is the fact that Menorca was completely under British control in 1763 thanks to the Treaty of Paris, fell capture to Spanish and French forces during the American Revolutionary War - only to change hands again to the British during the French Revolutionary Wars.

Why Feminism isn’t popular in Russia?

Why Feminism isn’t popular in Russia?

Not long ago we discussed this subject and then I came across the letter of a Russian girl in the Internet. Take your time to read it! It is very arguable, but it shows well the state of public opinion in today’s Russia. Sometimes I see an opinion in the Internet that strong family traditions of Russian women is a myth made up by dating services. But such letters as this one – emotional and honest – prove the opposite. The letter was written by the girl named Anna. She is a feminist, or want to become such. She reflects on the future of feminism in Russia. Anna says:

Even well-educated, intelligent and tolerant people in Russia react somehow nervously and embarrassedly if to begin a talk about feminism with them. And the word “male feminist” perplexes and bewilders. Russians are deeply convinced that a man can’t be a feminist like a bulldog can’t be a cat.

Recent TSA restrictions limit the volume and quantity of liquids and gels allowed in carry on luggage. However, that does not mean that you have to check your carry on luggage or leave your favorite shampoo or conditioner behind. Many products are now available in travel sizes and packaged in travel kits. There are also some “solid” alternatives to typical liquid carry on items to consider.

The Basics - Toothpaste, Deodorant, Shampoo, Conditioner, Facial Cleanser

The shopping aisle containing rows of trial-sized items has become amazingly popular since the TSA began allowing 3-ounces of gels and liquids in carry on luggage. A variety of toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner meeting the 3-ounce required can be purchased in a trial size. It is going to be your favorite brand? Maybe not, but you will have the basics with you. This can be especially helpful on long international flights and for those who have experienced overnight delays with connecting flights and unavailable luggage.

Why do Russians smile so seldom?

We often hear from foreigners that Russians rarely smile (especially people living in big cities). We don’t notice it but in comparison to other eastern and western countries it is right. Meaning what? Russians rude, impolite, ill mannered, non-hospitable and so on??

I think it is deeper in national traditions. Lets’ see how it is! I have found a wonderful work in the Internet written by one of the Voronezh University Professor I.A. Sternin. I think he has given a good scientific base to this phenomenon.

He points out 14 distinguishing features of a typical Russian smile:
