Humans of Tajikistan #24: "Мы близнецы и внешне очень похожи. При первой встрече может показаться, что мы во всем похожи - но наш внутренний мир и увлечения очень отличаются друг от друга. Одной из нас больше нравятся точные науки и технологии, а другой изучение языков. Также мы отличаемся и в общении с людьми. В обществе мы ведем себя по разному. Камила более общительна и быстрее находит друзей, а Карина более замкнута. Можно сказать, что мы являемся примером того, что каждый человек уникален. И как бы люди не были похожи внешне, у них все равно будет уникальный характер. Все люди в этом мире особенны в своих привычках и увлечениях. Каждый должен быть самим собой и не подражать другим." "We are twins and obviously look alike. At first glance, it can seem that we are similar in everything - but our internal worlds and hobbies differ from one another. One of us prefers hard sciences and technology, while the other enjoys learning languages. We also differ in communicating with others. Kamila is more approachable and quickly makes friends, while Karina is more of an introvert. We are an example of how every person is unique. Regardless of how similar people can look, each will have a unique character. Everyone in this world is special with their habits and hobbies. We should all strive to stay true to ourselves and not imitate others." #TajRupt#HOTAJ#Humans#of#Tajikistan#photo#photography#twins#blog#portrait#Tajikistan#ig#insta#instagram
That day we spend exploring the Glow Worm caves of Waitomo , New Zealand 😍 There’s not many more magical and unique experiences than this. If you find yourself in the North Island of New Zealand, don’t miss it! Make sure you go black water tubing through the caves too 😊

While hitchhiking I was invited to stay with the Turkish Search and rescue team for a training in the Kackar mountains. Will present you more of these amazing folks!
Turkey, HOME? The land, the cities and the people. But especially how people interact. (Şücrü)

HAPPINESS? Searching and rescuing people for 15 years brings a lot of connections with it, and good friends. Many people one gets to know. ...And behind you: a family to love with 9 siblings. (Şücrü Ateş)
⤵️⤵️⤵️Today, as we are given the time to reflect on the great (ongoing) work of the civil rights movement and its great leader, Martin Luther King Jr., I find myself thinking about how we see each other.
Every day, I ride the subway, surrounded by strangers of every race, creed, orientation, and status. The subway is a great equalizer -- all riders united through a common goal: getting where they're going with as little hassle and strife as possible.
And every day, I marvel at -- and try to capture -- the diversity of the 6 million faces and stories that pour through those train doors. Drawing strangers is an interesting act -- at once intimate and anonymous. When I draw a stanger, I see them as lines, shapes, emotions, details, stories, that I can translate onto paper.
Everyone is a work of art when you see them in this way. And when I draw on the subway, I aspire to capture that essence of a person, that little spark of humanity. In the practice of doing so, I like to think that for a moment I get to see people in a more intimate way than I might even see people I know well. That act of deeper seeing, of deconstructing what a person represents, can be profound.
Today, I want to invite you to take a moment to see the people who make up your world in a new light. Listen to the stories they tell in the way they hold themselves, the way they smile, the way they dress, the way they behave when they think no one is looking. Notice them. See them. Appreciate them. When you look this way, there is beauty and value in everyone you see.
We're all riders on one big subway with the same common goal: to get where we're going with as little hassle and strife as possible. If you take a moment to look more deeply and with real interest at your fellow riders, you might find you see them differently than you did before.
