Libya – Final impression

Libya

Today, I’m showing you the last picture from Libya, how I’ve seen this country in 2004.
How did you like it?

These days, Libya is obviously quite a different place. I’d like to visit it one day again, but I’m afraid it’s not going to happen in a near future…

Tomorrow, we’re moving to a very different place… 🙂
Stay tuned!

Libya – Green Book

Libya

Muammar Gaddafi wrote “The Green Book” in which he presented his political philosophy.
The book was inspired by The Little Red Book of Mao Tse-tung.

I was in Libya in 2004, and that time, you could buy Green Book everywhere; moreover, it was very likely to find the book translated into your own language! People were buying it as souvenir.

Libya – Gaddafi

Libya

At the end of this month, I want to share with you a few historical facts from the recent history of Libya.

Muammar Gaddafi (Moammar Gadhafi) was a leader of Libya from the Libyan Cultural Revolution in 1973 until 2011, when he was killed in the War. Gaddafi changed Libya a lot, transformed Libya into a socialist state; a “green” country where green flags and portraits of Gaddafi were everywhere in Libya.

Gaddafi was seen as a dictator who violated human rights.
