The Gates of Hell, Rodin's masterpiece that features almost all of his famous works (including the Thinker).
You should look into the story behind this piece if you don't know it, it's quite incredible...
I experienced my first Nikah ceremony last month - admittedly I was completely out of my comfort zone but I found it absolutely fascinating!
I am so thankful for brand new experiences that lead to grand adventures and new friendships - 2018 is definitely a year of many firsts ❤️

Heart-warming Veneto cuisine //
The original restaurant that we planned on going was fully booked for the night (which we ended up going the next day and was awesome too). Hence we looked around for some nearby places and surveyed 3 of them. The moment David saw the nonni cooking at Osteria Ai 4 Feri, he convinced me to eat at this place.
The restaurant is a humble spot with homy interior, no pretentiousness at all. Thankfully we still got a spot without riservato. We shared a table for 4 with a mom and the son, who was already in the middle of their meal. The restaurant serves Venetian seafood-centric dishes and feels a lot like home cooking, but not your typical spaghetti with meatballs or lasagna type of “heavy” Italian home style cooking. The Veneto cuisine is more on a lighter side with practically no sauce.
We ordered the “Sarde in Saor” to start, which is sardine with pickled onion and polenta drenched in olive oil. It’s a traditional Veneto cuisine that can be found everywhere. Simple yet very delicious. For the pasta dish, the 3 items that stood up to us were: spaghetti con vongole (spaghetti with clams), spaghetti seppie nere (spaghetti cooked in squid ink), and spaghetti scogliera (spaghetti with seafood with just a touch of tomato - tomato, not tomato sauce). We went with spaghetti scogliera, which came with generous amount of seafood and langoustines. This pasta is huuuge (the default came for 2 person, but can easily feed 3/4). We finished everything and couldn’t be happier.
I was thinking of coming back here for another dinner but unfortunately our itinerary didn’t match up.... This is easily one of our most memorable meals in Venice (or this trip).

This piece that was hidden in the World-War II by Audi before the Russian army discovered the shop and retained it as a war possession. Russia was forced later to relocate it to Germany in Ingolstadt in 1949 as an Asset for Audi.
The racing cars during this time did not have aerodynamic downforce- which effectively meant there was no way to keep the rear stable, therefore making it difficult on the drivers to handle the oversteer.
