  1. Beautiful photos. These places need to be shrines where skilled shamans can direct the prayers of millions to heal the people and the soil beneath our feet. Because I can’t go anywhere near these places. They try to trick you into staying in rooms converted to a “boutique hotel” where no one in their right mind would shut their eyes, and no one seems to understand the basics well enough how to counter the magic that has created hell on earth. In fact, I discovered an ancestor, one “wilkinson” who claimed to be an anabaptist returned from Ireland in 1772 with a fortune he used to start the bank of Ireland. He married his only daughter to my ancestor and the family was rewarded with a title. Way of the world. In fact no anabaptist ever crossed the ocean to europe ever again. Wilkinson was was a crytojew from Holland, which is where many merchants went after Isabella asked them to leave. Wilkinson was a rum and slave trader. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ut7I75Q_-zA
