World’s first monument for the plastic chair / cc-by-4.0 Reinis

Hi! This is a little bit different, because this plastic chair ain’t made from plastic, but from bronze. But it’s definitely the first monument for a plastic chair in the World!

The guy sitting there is Ēvalds Valters, a very famous Latvian actor who lived 100 years (1894-1994).

Ba`Adrie, Ninawa, Iraq

Not your everyday travel location. Stephan Pramme went on a field trip to Kurdistan/Iraq with a group studying the genocide of the Yazides by the IS. He took some great pictures. This one caught my interest.
