METROPOLITAN RESEARCH / NAVORSING OOR METROPOLE

'n Reeks artikels oor metropole dwarsoor die wêreld fokus op die nuutste en interdissiplinêre navorsing, met die hoofdoel om uitgebreide hoofstukke oor geskiedenis, kultuur, demografie en boukuns by bestaande inskrywings te voeg.

Ek is steeds besig om 'n skatkis van bronne en inspirasies te raadpleeg.

NORMANDIESE HERELEWE

Die streng bewaakte Carrickfergus-kasteel huisves 'n jonger generasie Normandiese edellui en hul barstende klerekaste
King John on the loo - Gawd, what a frecking noise! Must be polo shirts number 2145 and 2146 up there!

Die eiendomsmark ondergaan ook in Noord-Ierland 'n merkbare verandering. Een of ander koninklike Anglo-Normandiese kasteel moet as shared property aan jonger adellikes onderverhuur of verkoop word, en so het Chevalier Voyageur en Lady Deirdre kans gekry om die Belfastse polo-hemphandel vanuit die strategies geleë Carrickfergus-kasteel al op die Belfast Lough-waterweg te beheer - nog voordat kooplui uit die Verre Ooste hul kosbare ware op die plaaslike mark kan verkoop.

Gereeld beklim die twee waagmoediges die ysterperde van NI Railways om kooptogte in die nabygeleë stad te onderneem.

ADDICTED TO... Good literature. And ever more Russian television shows. Russification is taking its toll ;) Ons moet beslis meer artikels oor Rusland skryf... ;)

The top three in 2011... In daardie jaar het ek aan die volgende TV-reekse verslaaf geraak...

1 Меч ("Swaard") - A Moscow-based undercover organization launches its... ah... private anti-crime program. Starring Roman Kurtsin as Russia's most fabulous gunman ever... I just love that "Moscow housewife at the garbage chute" incident!
2 Хачу верить - Sort of Russian X-Files: I Want to Believe-documentary series. Actor Борис Корчевников / Boris Korchevnikov is the coolest presenter ever.
3 Котовский - 'n Vryheidsheld in tsaristiese Rusland. Great TV series, already available on Blu-ray.


In 2012 and 2013, it's...

1 Downton Abbey, of course!
2 Edwardian Farm
3 Great British/Continental Railway Journeys

In 2015...

1 Downton Abbey, yet again!
2 Titanic - Blood & Steel
3 Supernatural
Can you spot the restaurant hidden in this photograph? Well, you've made it to heaven then!

ALSO ADDICTED TO...

1 Bernau - No. 1 most unique little town in Germany with kind people - a nice and relaxing place. Part-time population up one... ;)
2 East London Brewing Company's Pale Ale
3 Jane Roe Kitchen (Old Street, London) - this place is heaven for foodies who crave Italian cuisine - they introduced me to No. 2






ACTIVITIES

On a gagné!

It seems that articles about Paris, France and the French language are more popular than information about Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Dutch. See the statistics below.
