From our contributors: week of November 21

Here’s this week’s roundup of articles written by some members of our contributors team on their personal blogs. Happy reading!

Jenna, our contributor from Poland, wrote a post about the historic houses of Lower Silesia.

“There’s something distinct about the 100+ year-old houses in the Lower Silesian region of southwest Poland. This certain distinctness isn’t immediate in the way these houses look, even though they do have similar characteristics – weathering gray stone facades whose rough edges warm and smooth with distance; even windows with thick, crocheted lace curtains; pointed roofs.”

DeeBee, our contributor from France, describes the uniqueness of some of the shops of Paris.

“Shops are part of our daily life…but the development of super markets sadly means that too many small businesses are struggling to survive…Strolling through Paris you can still find shops that have been established for several generations and therefore still do well.”

Ana, contributing editor from Argentina, writes about the historic Recoleta Cemetery of Buenos Aires.

“… a visit to Recoleta Cemetery provides a glimpse into the political, artistic and social history of the country. Former presidents, war heroes, explorers, artists, Nobel Prize recipients, writers, sporting legends and even sworn enemies share this eternal resting place.”
