LAHORE , PAKISTAN 🇵🇰: WAGAH BORDER CEREMONY

The lowering of the flags ceremony at the Wagah border is a daily military practice that the security forces of India and Pakistan (Pakistan Rangers) have jointly followed since 1959. The drill is characterized by elaborate and rapid dancelike manoeuvres, which have been described as “colourful”. It is alternatively a symbol of the two countries’ rivalry, as well as brotherhood and cooperation between the two nations. (Wiki)

LAHORE , PAKISTAN : MAKIN’ JALEBI !

Jalebi, also known as zulbia and zalabia, is a sweet made by deep-frying maida flour batter in pretzel or circular shapes, which are then soaked in sugar syrup.

This kind Jalebi maker invited me to take pictures of his process. Awesome. And the Jalebi was delicious, too!

LAHORE , PAKISTAN 🇵🇰: LAHORE FORT

The Lahore Fort (Punjabi and Urdu: شاہی قلعہ‎: Shahi Qila, or “Royal Fort”), is a citadel. It is notable for having been almost entirely rebuilt in the 17th century, when the Mughal Empire was at the height of its splendour and opulence. The foundations of the modern Lahore Fort date to 1566 during the reign of Emperor Akbar. In 1981, the fort was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lahore_Fort

Union Square. Landmark of the city. It is the intersection of three major streets: “Ștefan cel Mare” Boulevard (the former Big Street), Alexandru Lăpușneanu Street (the former Serbian Street) and Cuza Vodă Street (the former Golia Street). The square has a special meaning to Romanians because in front of Petre Bacalu’s Inn (situated in the past on the parking space in front of Victoria Cinema), “Hora Unirii” was danced for the first time in 1857, and then, after the announcement of the Union of Romanian Principalities on the 24th of January 1859, which was made through the double election of Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza. http://iasi.travel/en/stories/the-union-square/
