Documentário: Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul (2005)

Confúcio disse:  "If you want to know a civilization, you should listen to its music. " Music can reveal everything about a place.

É desta forma que começa este documentário sobre a música que se produz em Istambul. 
Idealizado e realizado por Fatih Akin, o documentário transporta-nos para um passeio pelas ruas da cidade com uma banda sonora digna de registo, conseguindo identificar as verdadeiras origens, e as influências asiáticas e europeias que a cidade sofre.
Altamente recomendável a qualquer musicodependente.  

Handbag Test-use?

A mala acima foi a pior compra que fiz dos últimos tempos. Achei-a bonita, com espaço para arrumação e até funcional graças ao saco de arrumação que vem com ela. 
Mas depois, no dia-a-dia, as razões que me levaram a concluir que devíamos ter tempo para testar este tipo de mala, são:

- o saco de arrumação é pequeno, diria que é 1/3 da altura da mala;
- Pensei que com o saco de arrumação, o facto de não ter forro não seria problema, mas enganei-me. Por não estar forrada, sujo sempre a manga do casaco/blusa quando meto a mão na mala à procura de algo;
- por ter um saco de arrumação sem divisões para organizar seja o que for, ando sempre louca à procura, lá no fundo... das chaves, da carteira, do telemóvel, e até já cheguei a pensar que tinha perdido o passe. 

É bonita... mas pouco prática. :(
