Canada

Departing from the last of the galleries, the path takes us to this overlook of St. Onuphrius.


The path is lined by several large scale photographs from across the country, both people and places.


That includes this interaction of a Canadian soldier with Afghan children during the Afghan War. Given what's now happened to the country, one wonders what will become of these children, living in a country now controlled by a group of men whose world view begins and ends in the 6th century.


More of these.

One more view of the church. We'll wrap up this tour tomorrow.

  1. St. Onuphrius is a new one on me - just how many saints are there? Not enough, to judge by what's happening in some parts of the world.

  3. Looks an interesting church. Many veterans of the Afghan conflict must be saddened by the current situation in that country.

  5. It is amazing that some societies are still run based on centuries old texts composed by primitive peoples, and an entire way of life is based on these words. The United States is already a theocracy in fact.

  11. Amazing murals. Such a shame about Afghanistan. Maybe they'll move into the 7th century soon.

    1. I agree. That was the photo shown on the Facebook page that drew me in to see and read the blog itself. Good shot!

  18. Yes, they stagnated. I just thought of H.G. Wells. They need a time machine.

  20. I like the church but it looks so dwarfed!

  21. I like seeing large photos of iconic moments in time, makes you think.

  22. We live in the 21st century and in some parts of the world children know only war in their life...

  23. This >>> " ... what will become of these children, living in a country now controlled by a group of men whose world view begins and ends in the 6th century."

    It's a horrid thought. Those men are savages.
