“In my opinion, the biggest scare comes from the media but also the fact that our normal way of life has been disrupted. Some may see it as unfortunate but biologically it was necessary. It shows mankind that no matter how many billions of dollars we hoard, no matter how many tanks we have in our arsenal the throws of nature can and will affect us catastrophically.” • What do you think of the current event drastically affecting the globe? 🤔 Let us know in the comments below! 👇👇 • Find more of this intriguing op-ed at the link in our bio! 🌍 • #nature #love #live #life #experience #explore #lifestyle #natural #minimal #minimalist #green #sustainable #sustainability #community #world #love #peace #natural #blog #medium #agriculture #travel #organic #regenerative #wholistic #cooking #miseenculture #MEC

A snowy & silent Beijing | 📸: @chinolombia Pictures from Beijing’s snowy streets last week show a very different city to the bustling hub we’re used to. As many people stay inside because of the virus outbreak, our team went out on the streets to find out what the Forbidden City looks like without the lines. And we do have some good news for museum lovers: China’s great institutions around the country are putting exhibitions online while public attractions remain closed during this challenging time. From the National Museum in Beijing to the Terracotta Warriors in Emperor Qin Shi Huang’s mausoleum, you can now see some of China’s greatest treasures online. Head to the National Cultural Heritage Administration’s website (with Google Translate turned on) and remember to note down your favorites. Once we can welcome you back here, we’ll make sure you see them for real. Stay safe, friends. #OurChina #StayStrongWuhan
