The tallest building in the world 🏬🇦🇪
Dubai’s Burj Khalifa has total height of 829.8 m (2,722 ft) and a roof height of 828 m (2,717 ft). It has been the tallest structure in the world since its completion in late 2008.
Now this is definitely worth acknowledging and sharing. After his three daughters and his niece passed were killed in an Israeli raid on their town in Gaza, Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish and his five remaining children started Daughters for Life Foundation an organization based in Toronto, which funds university scholarships for women in the Middle East who want to study in the USA, Canada and Britain. It’s amazing people like this who turn their sorrow into hope for others and allow the legacy of their loved ones live on inspite of the tragedy, violence, ignorance and vengeance that took their life. Bravo Dr Abuelaish. ⠀

Abdalsalam Abdu Al Basout is from western Mosul. He has been raising his two children alone since his wife's death. "It's not easy, but I keep the best memories of her in my mind," Abdu says when he is asked about his wife. He and his family arrived at the Hassan Sham U2 camp in May 2017, after their home was bombed by the air forces.
For him, the distribution of the winter kits in the camp is essential since he has no way of providing winter clothing for his children. "Shoes and coats are the most important items to protect my boys from the cold because I do not have the money to buy those for them." Explain Abdalsalam.
Although Mosul is now under national military forces and not under ISIS control, the city is mostly destroyed and many have lost everything. "Being in the camp is safer than in Mosul now, where I have no home or work, and in the country, I have support to look after my boys." Abdalsalam Abdu Al Basout.
During this January, ADRA in partnership with LDS Charities is distributing nearly 5,777 winter items to 963 families (about 4,815 individuals among men, women, and children) at Hassan Sham U2 camp. Many families have returned to their places in Mosul, as the situation is under control of the Iraqi government. However, those who remain are the most vulnerable people because their homes have been totally destroyed or they do not feel safe to return.
Познакомтесь! Эту чудную, белоснежную, мягкую крыску зовут Госик! И она решила пригреться у меня, несмотря на её скандинавские корни, крыса-викинг чувствует очень даже хорошо в солнечном Средиземноморье и успела оставить свой след в Тель-Авиве, Хайфе и в лапах моего кота). Я уверенн, что её ждут великие открытия, как и хозяина.

L’Hôtel du Lac in Tunis, Tunisia. Architect: Raffaele Contigiani Designed and built: [1970-1974]. The conception of the hotel began shortly after Tunisia gained independence in 1956. The building is ten storeys and stands out from the all white city as a geometrically dynamic work of architecture cast in exposed concrete; it is by far the largest and greatest example of brutalism in the country. Each level grows in length, giving it its distinct inverted-pyramidical shape which is commonly juxtaposed with the hull of ship. The length of the 10th floor reaches 90 meters, twice as much as the foundation.
I was able to score a cheap ticket on EasyJet from London to Amman. Got to scratch Petra off of my to-do list. Felt a little like Indiana Jones that day. Pretty f-ing cool. #tbt#petra#jordan#travel#wanderlust
