#1 "Demons Plateau", thousand-year-old plane trees and stone idols of Kara-tepa, Uzbekistan by @damm-steemit

Perhaps the most popular here is a stone called "Heart". Although it all depends on the imagination - someone sees two diplodocuses joining their heads, someone hands in boxing gloves. Some see the card suit "spades". So, what do you see?Locals say that this place (however, like the Demons Plateau, located nearby) has poor energy. Trees do not grow here, cattle try to avoid these places and people settle a little further from here.

#2 The Difficult Life of Refugees by @pushpedal

Ever since we entered Iran, we started noticing the discrimination towards foreigners - not tourists but migrants from neighbouring countries. It has been a consistent pattern in each country that has accepted refugees or migrants. For example, the Iranians spoke very poorly about Afghans living in their country, and the Turkish generally blamed Syrian refugees for taking their jobs.

#3 Broholm Castle on the Danish island of Fyn and where Hans Christian Andersen was a writer in residence by @geke

When we arrived, a Broholmer handler greeted us in the parking lot and complimented me on my spoken English, incorrectly assuming I was British. As an Anglophile and frequent consumer of BBC America broadcasting, this mistake may well have been the highlight of my trip to Europe.
