Flying to ITALY...

Next week I'll be in Padova ...

I'll visit Padua and take somephotos there.
I want to see
"La Specola" e la riviera San Benedetto and if possible
The Orto Botanico di Padova,
which is the world's oldest academic botanical garden that is still in its original location. (Officially, the oldest university botanical garden is the Orto botanico di Pisa,
which was founded in 1544; however, that garden was relocated twice
and has only occupied its current,
and now-permanent, location since 1591.)
It is located in Padua, Italy and was founded in 1545.
The garden, affiliated with the University of Padua,
currently covers roughly 22,000 square meters,
and is known for its special collections and historical design.

And hope to visit Venice :) for you all...

Some photos from my daughter's visit...

Being in Venice ?

(Venezia) is one of the world's greatest pedestrian cities. Whether it's sparkling in late spring sunshine or shrouded in winter mist, this city will enchant you in every way. No automotive vehicles are permitted within the city of Venice, which lies offshore on a series of islands.

Everything in the city is transported by boat from the mainland and through the cities many canals to its destination.

The fact that there are no cars, buses, or motorcycles on Venice's narrow streets make it a perfect place to walk around and will enjoy the old city sights.

See you soon ;) ...


Ladies and Gentlemen ...

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term gentleman (from Latin gentilis, belonging to a race or
"gens", and "man",
cognate with the French word gentilhomme and
the Italian gentil uomo or gentiluomo),
in its original and strict signification, denoted a man of good family,
analogous to the Latin generosus
(its invariable translation in English-Latin documents).
In this sense the word equates with the French gentilhomme (nobleman),
which latter term was in Great Britain long confined to the peerage.
The term "gentry" (from the Old French genterise for gentelise)
has much of the social class significance of the French noblesse or
of the German Adel, but without the strict technical requirements
of those traditions (such as quarters of nobility).
This was what the rebels under John Ball in the 14th century meant
when they repeated:
Adam delft and Eve span,
Who was then the Gentleman?
John Selden in Titles of Honour (1614),
discussing the title "gentleman", speaks of "our English use of it"
as "convertible with nobilis"
(an ambiguous word, like 'noble' meaning elevated either by rank
or by personal qualities)
and describes in connection with it the forms of ennobling in various
European countries.
To a degree, "gentleman" signified a man with an income
derived from property, a legacy or some other source,
and was thus independently wealthy and did not need to work.
The term was particularly used of those who could not claim nobility
or even the rank of esquire. Widening further,
it became a politeness for all men, as in the phrase
"Ladies and Gentlemen, ..."
and this was then used (often with the abbreviation Gents)
to indicate where men could find a lavatory,
without the need to indicate precisely what was being described.
In modern speech,
the term is usually democratised so as to include any man of good,
courteous conduct, or even to all men
(as in indications of gender-separated facilities).
See them around you ... forever !
