I've seen many love scenes at the cinema... but I think this is the BEST. Just a quote from Alfonso Gatto (italian poet): "Come la donna affonda e dice: Vieni! Dentro, più dentro, dov'è largo il mare... Come la donna è calda e dice: Vieni! Dentro, più dentro, dov'è caldo il pane... E dirla noi vorremmo mare, pane... La donna sfatta che ci prese all'alba dentro al suo petto e ci nutrì di sonno" "How the lady drowns, and says: Come inside and inside, where the Sea is wide... How the lady is warm, and says: Come inside and inside, where the Bread is baked... To be honest, we need Sea, Bread... And so the untidy lady took us in her breast and fed us with Sleep" P.S. #23 Best video (Today) Italy #66 Most Viewed (This Week) Italy

Aprenda palavrões em inglês no www.leader****.br - Belly dance (Arabic: رقص شرقي‎) is a Western term for a traditional Arab dance form. Some American devotees refer to it simply as "Middle Eastern Dance." In the Arabic language it is known as raqs sharqi (رقص شرقي; literally "oriental dance") or sometimes raqs baladi (رقص بلدي; literally "dance of country", and so "national" or "folk" dance). The term "raqs sharqi" may have originated in Egypt. In Greece and the Balkans, belly dance is called tsiftetelli (τσιφτετέλι), çiftetelli in Turkish. The term "belly dance" is a creation of Orientalism, first used in English in 1899, and translating in French to "danse du ventre."Native to North Africa and Asia, belly dancing (Arabic:raqs al sharqiرقص شرقي) is based on one of the oldest social dances in world history. Support for this theory stems from similarities between poses from the modern dance form and those depicted in ancient Egyptian art.[citation needed] There are two forms of belly dancing. The first is called raqs baladi, a social dance performed for fun and celebration by men and women of all ages, usually during festive occasions such as weddings and other social gatherings. The second form, the more theatrical version and the one most popular in America today, is called raqs sharqi. Like raqs baladi, raqs sharqi is performed by both male and female dancers. In regions where belly dancing is native, boys and girls learn it informally from an early age by observing and imitating their elders during family/community celebrations and gatherings with friends.[citation needed] Today, these ancient dance forms are taught in classes throughout the world where skilled dancers/teachers share the knowledge that has been passed down to them.The term "belly dancing" (which is believed by some to be a mis-transliteration of the term for the dance style Beledi or Baladi, though it is also a literal translation of the term "danse du ventre" used by the French Orientalists) is generally credited to Sol Bloom, entertainment director of the 1893 World's Fair, the World Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Although there were dancers of this type present at the 1876 Centennial in Philadelphia, it was not until the 1893 fair that it gained national attention. There were authentic dancers from several Middle Eastern and North African countries, including Syria, Turkey and Algeria, but it was the dancers in the Egyptian Theater of The Street in Cairo exhibit who gained the most notoriety. The rapid hip movements and the fact that the dancers were uncorseted, was considered shocking to the Victorian sensibilities of the day. In fact, there were attempts by many, most notably Anthony Comstock, head of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, to have the Egyptian theater closed.Belly dancing has been banned or restricted in some jurisdictions. In Egypt, there was a ban on foreign belly dancers for a year due to the complaint from Egyptian dancers that they were taking away business. The ban was eventually overturned in September 2004.

*******www.templodediosas**** La danza del vientre es una danza que combina elementos tradicionales de Oriente Medio junto con otros del Norte de África. En árabe se la conoce como raqs sharqi رقص شرقي ("danza de oriente") o en ocasiones raqs baladi رقص بلدي (danza "nacional" o "folk"). El raks baladi es una danza muy elemental, prácticamente sin desplazamientos y con movimientos principalmente de cadera. A la evolución de esta danza se la llama danza del vientre o raks sharki en Egipto. El término "belly dance" (en español 'danza del vientre') es según algunos una mala transcripción o transliteración del vocablo que designa el estilo de danza beledi o baladi y suele atribuirse a Sol Bloom, director de espectáculos en la Feria Universal de Chicago de 1893. El raks sharki incluye movimientos del folklore egipcio, danza clásica y contemporánea, con grandes desplazamientos, vueltas y movimientos de todas las partes del cuerpo, pero sobre todo de la cadera. En Turquía, a la danza del vientre se la conoce como gobek dans o rakasse (ritmo turco). El origen exacto de esta forma de baile es motivo de constante debate entre quienes se interesan por esta danza, debido principalmente a la escasa investigación llevada a cabo al respecto. La mayoría de los estudios los han realizado las propias bailarinas, en un intento por entender sus orígenes. No obstante, suele pasarse por alto que gran parte de la danza en Oriente Medio surge en el contexto social, no tanto en el de las representaciones en cabarets a cargo de bailarinas profesionales, entorno éste más visible y glamuroso. Esto ha provocado una importante confusión en cuanto a la verdadera naturaleza de este baile, dando lugar a teorías contradictorias en un intento por explicar sus orígenes. Estas son algunas de las teorías existentes: * desciende de las danzas del antiguo Egipto * procede de un baile de tipo religioso que practicaban antiguamente las sacerdotisas de los templos * formaba parte de las prácticas tradicionales de alumbramiento en la/s region/es de origen. * se había extendido gracias a las migraciones de los pueblos gitanos y de grupos similares, de origen hindú. De todas ellas, rara vez se hace alusión a la primera, a pesar de que cuenta con el apoyo de personalidades como el bailarín egipcio Doctor Mo Geddawi promocionándola. El principal apoyo de esta teoría tiene su explicación en las semejanzas entre las poses del arte egipcio y los movimientos del baile en su vertiente moderna. La teoría más conocida es la que la asocia con un baile religioso, a la que se suele hacer referencia en los principales artículos sobre el tema y que goza de mayor publicidad. La teoría que la asocia a las "prácticas de alumbramiento" en virtud de una serie de movimientos del Raqs Sharqi moderno. Es refrendada y extendida por el bailarín marroquí y aficionado a la antropología conocido también como Carolina Varga Dinicu y tiene que ver con la revisión de los movimientos que se han venido utilizando para ilustrar o facilitar el alumbramiento. A pesar de que dicha teoría carece de un "punto de origen", sí que cuenta con numerosas referencias históricas de tipo oral, además de que aparece citada en un comentario de la obra The Dancer of Shamahka. Dos cuestiones sugieren la danza gitana como su origen. Se cree que los pueblos gitanos y otros grupos humanos similares, pudieron importar esta forma de baile en sus desplazamientos o adoptarlo sobre la marcha y difundirlo. Gracias a la fusión de las formas gitanas de baile con el Raqs Sharqi, estas teorías disfrutan de mayor popularidad en Occidente de la que tendrían necesariamente en sus países de origen - si bien esto puede deberse en parte a los prejuicios existentes sobre estos pueblos. Sea cual sea el origen, la danza posee una larga tradición en Oriente Medio y de África del Norte. A pesar de las restricciones que impone el Islam en cuanto a la representación pictórica de seres humanos, existen algunas muestras de ello en todo el mundo islámico. Libros como The Art and Architecture of Islam 650-1250 muestran imágenes de las bailarinas en muros palaciegos, al igual que sucede con las pinturas en miniatura persas de los siglos XII y XIII.

Seattle Washington is a city that has much to offer young and old alike as a vacation destination. The truly amazing thing about a city like Seattle is that many of the attractions that might appeal to young children, might also appeal to those of an older generation for much the same and very different reasons. One of the many attractions that older visitors are sure to enjoy, well, if flowers are there thing, is the Woodland Park Rose Garden. These gardens are free to attend and offer some spectacular blooms if you visit between the months of May and August. The Seattle Aquarium is another point of interest for young and old alike. Whether you are in your first childhood or your fifth there really is nothing more exciting than watching glorious sea creatures swim above your head. When I was a child, which was something that happened in science fiction, not in real life. Which brings me to my next timeless attraction: The Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame. This museum explores the history of science fiction and the impact it has had on the world we see today.travelvacationcruisefuntravelingactivitiesdestinations
