Libya: Roman baths of Leptis Magna

This is a Spanish sparrow video from Cyprus.

Leptis Magna is a World Heritage site in Libya.

Today, 22 April, there is still water in the natatio, the swimming pool of the nearly two thousand-year old thermae, Roman baths.

There is also still swimming: not by Romans anymore; but by tadpoles.

In the beautiful triumphal arch of Emperor Septimius Severus, a native of the city, Spanish sparrows nest.

Rock sparrows: here.

Leptis Magna, Libya: Rome by the sea: here.

Roman monuments in Morocco: here.

    Gaddafi: A Living Myth is a new opera that, according to the English National Opera (ENO) website, “explores a contradictory enigma and the power of myth”.

    Written by Asian Dub Foundation, it has been noticeable that the ENO has been very quiet about their new production.

    Featuring members of the ENO Orchestra and North African musicians, this new work will draw on real life incidents to highlight the themes of power, politics and media representation.

    The new piece is only due to run for six nights – so get your tickets while you can.
