Beach art, Dover. (Source AFP?). This was meant against Brexit a few weeks ago. Serves as a reminder of the thousands of Allied soldiers who boarded in Dover, and other English ports 75 years ago. Americans, English, Canadians, Australians, New-Zealanders, French, and so on and so forth… In a few days, five million soldiers landed on Utah, Gold, Juno, Sword and Omaha Beach, to free Europe. Never forget them.

Guarani art, Asunción. The Guarani were an Indian tribe in Paraguay and Brazil. The language Tupi-Guarani has given the names of many a city or a place in the region. Iguaçu, the waterfall on the Río Paraná, between Brazil and Paraguay, means “big water”; i means water, uáçu, big. I thought the Guarani were extinct, but there appears to be – still – 80,000 Guarani living in Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay.
