Dear Jan,

Welcome to blog community and thank you for visiting my blog.

Thank you for your kind words about my post. I wanted to answer your questions...we grow tea in Lenkoran area of the country, towards south, close to border with Iran but we also import tea quite a lot...About our neighbours...from my personal experience I know that in Georgia preference is coffee, in Azerbaijan we do not drink coffee a lot and we do not grow it either...about Armenia I am not sure. I think in Azerbaijan tea is drank more than anywhere in the region and maybe in any other country including England (if we take per capita :)

Best wishes,

Ayten

Dear Jan

Thank you for your lovely comments on Edinburgh DP! I particularly love today's picture; even though it's a sculpture, the way you've captured it makes it look so alive! And the caption is chilling...

Keep up the good work!

That's powerful, and fascinating he intended to speak in Greensboro. Well one more day and perhaps his 'dream' has come true. Go Obama!

Thanks for the comments!

Greensboro's place in the history of the civil rights movement is secure. Dr. King spoke at Bennett College http://www.bennett.edu in Greensboro in February 1958.

An interview given to student reporters at the Bennett Banner is transcribed at http://mlk-kpp01.stanford.edu/index.php/home/pages?page=http://mlk-kpp01.stanford.edu/kingweb/publications/papers/vol4/580211-010-Interview,_Bennett_College.htm

Two years later at the downtown F. W. Woolworth's the Greensboro Four began the student sit-in movement that swept the South. This is widely considered (according to the Greensboro Truth and Reconciliation Commission) to be the spark for the 1960's civil rights movement.

An interesting read is the GTRC timeline from their final report. http://www.ictj.org/static/GTRC.FinalReport/21.annexes.contexttimeline.pdf

Finally, please look at our bookstore by clicking the Greensboro Related Books link. Under the Civil Rights category are numerous books documenting Dr. King's life and Greensboro's role in the civil rights struggle. http://astore.amazon.com/greensborodailyphoto-20?%5Fencoding=UTF8&node=9

It does make you wonder how history would be had he not be assassinated. I have such high hopes for Barack Obama as President. I think a lot of people here in this country and abroad echo those sentiments.

It'a a great photo of this sculpture of a great man. I'm a little surprised that so few US bloggers acknowledged this day, but I'm certainly happy that you did. Thanks for sharing the information, too.

PS. After visiting your blog today, I worked backwards to see your other photos, and I am most impressed. Your work is very professional, and I look forward to seeing more! Welcome to our CDP community!

Thanks for all the comments. Make yourselves a note to check our blog on February 1st. That's an important date in civil rights history because of the events in Greensboro on Feb 1, 1960.

In fact, why not visit us every day. Then you won't have to make a special trip!

Quite a story. Must be an extra special day to many people in Greensboro today (the 20th).
