my country..

anonymous asked:

In Asia, there are 3 countries that are greatly influenced by Chinese culture, namely Korea, Japan and Vietnam. Korea and Vietnam basically borrowed Chinese character until 15th&19th century, meanwhile the Japanese still use Kanji as a part of their writing system nowsday. If you study all these 4 languages, a lot of words sound so much similar. Their cultures and festivals are related to each other as well. They might look different now but they came from the same root and share same values.

I’m well aware of my own culture and language that I was raised with but thanks for the cliff notes…I think??

fyi Vietnam wasn’t just ~influenced~ we were colonized by them, most significantly the Han. It lasted well over a thousand years. Our culture retains so much of what are basically Chinese influences because they invaded us. If you’re going to regurgitate this stuff at least don’t leave this part out. 😬

i saw a textpost from here on instagram and i couldn’t resist turning it into a hetalia shitpost

america has definitely had to quote unquote kick his own ass before in the american civil war. also, especially as soon as the u.s. became a major world power, america in general has been pretty agressive

This is my school, sadly I don’t have any other photos of how the city is.

My city, Mexico City is falling apart, my country is falling a part. We need international help, and I know a random girl with a blog isn’t gonna change the world, but I really need the world to know what’s happening on my country.

People are dying. Kids and babies are dying. Animals are dying.

Please. Please. Please. Reblog.

Independence Day (Día de la Independencia) is a Mexican holiday to celebrate the “cry of independence” on September 16, 1810, which started a revolt against the Spaniards. It follows from the day of the Cry of Dolores (El Grito de Dolores), on September 15.

I’m not proud of most of the citizens on Mexico or my president, but i am surely damn proud of the country itself. I love the music, i love the food, i love the places, so here’s some of my favorite musicians that proudly represent Mexico! Pinta tu madre patria de colores, so you can’t tell the difference entre los others. 

VIVA MÉXICO CABRONES.

I like that, in the mornings, I can wake up, take my dog, and go grab coffee and a bagel, then bring back a box to my wife. I like that. I don’t want anything else or need anything. I have a great wife and a great life.
