Uncompromising horizons, landscapes sculpted by the wind and by solitude, rocky beaches you can only walk or sail to, but also “glamorous rituals” like fish&ouzo evenings in the small squares of Chora, a tangle of white houses built around the old Kastro and the church of Aghios Nikolaos.

Baijiu, the Chinese deluxe distillate: in Italy the new 24K bottle

JNC launches in China Jin Jian Nan 24K, a “baijiu”, traditional Chinese liquor distilled from cereals that drinks the “Ganbei”, “dry the glass”.

Chinese restaurant. Fine meal. A time to close the supper took a sip of a generic Chinese grappa, in pink or plum varieties, sweetie and traitorous,

but useful for digesting fried foods full of glutamate.

Today, the high alcohol content (40-60 °) remains, and the drinking of a Shottino model breath (which would otherwise be rude) but the “baijiu”

(generally known as the Chinese distillate) has risen to level Of course Chinese cuisine.

China’s globalization and expansion in Italy (purchase of Inter and Milan included), China has decided to export a third brand of distillate

“baijiu” that follows the well-known and prestigious Moutai (the most well-known and popular in Our country)

and Wuliangye (expensive bike, already exhibited at the China Pavilion during EXPO): Jian Nan Chun landed in Italy

with the new jumbo jiang Nan 24K, a modern package with a glamorous gold-colored bottle, but the multiple references to the nobility imperial.

Like tea, silk or martial arts, the “baiju” is in fact part of the cultural heritage of the Dragon City

with a history that is lost in the night of the times, it seems to be the favorite liquor of the emperor already during the Tang dynasty ,

In the 1300s. The Jin Jian Nan 24K is therefore a “baijiu”, white liquor, transparent, distilled from cereals

, which traditionally drinks at home at home (try to believe if you hold high gradations) Or at dinner, strictly smooth,

in ceramic shorts at Ganbei’s scream! (Dry the glass!).

Appearing on Times Square screens in New York on January 28 for Chinese New Year

celebrations, and featured as a trademark in several Hollywood films (including “The amazing Spder Man 2” and “Transformers 4”)

, Jin Jian Nan 24K Now finally comes to our tables, soft, pleasing to her well-known sweet sugar, from the lasting scent and from the top to a more

accessible thread of her “competitor”.

Jin Jian Nan 24 K is obviously the last born in the family, if you want to have it even cheerful than you already

drink it, you can break the list of his brothers: K6 and K9 lighter and more delicate, 15 powerful years Pungent and 1949,

leading the date of the creation of the People’s Republic of China and which is a reserve as well as the top bottle of the house

. But attentive: here the prices (which in the case of the K24 are those of a premium base distillate),

go up and may in some cases also touch the 500 euros.

Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk: The baby is here!

BABY-NEWS Congratulations, Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper! The model and the actor got their first child together

Model Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper have become parents, as the People magazine now announced.

Already two weeks ago the little girl was born and called Lea de Seine Shayk Cooper.

The couple themselves would like to enjoy happiness in a more comfortable triad.

The two are since spring 2015 a pair. The news, which Irina Shayk is pregnant,

was announced shortly after the Victoria’s Secret show in November 2016, with the model already pregnant over the catwalk.

Radiantly beautiful and in top shape: the pregnant Irina Shayk at her “Victoria’s Secret” debut 2016.

The Russian model was on the run in November 2016 for the first time as an angel on behalf of Victoria’s Secret on the catwalk

Under the tight lingerie, the delicate vault of the baby’s belly could hardly be concealed.

The new statue of Cristiano Ronaldo, too bad to be true

The island of Madeira has decided to rename its airport with the player’s name. All went well, until it was not revealed the disturbing bronze bust dedicated to CR7

For Madeira (o Madera, to put Italian) Cristiano Ronaldo is practically a semi-god. In the city of Funchal, the island’s largest, the famous footballer has taken its first steps, and more recently has opened a luxury hotel of the Pestana chain CR7, as well as a new museum dedicated to his sporting achievements. So the local government has decided to further pay tribute by renaming the island’s airport with his name.

A nice gesture, crowned by a press conference with the same Cristiano Ronaldo was present along with Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa and Prime Minister Antonio Costa. In a speech of congratulations and a statement of pride, everything went smoothly, until the time when she was unveiled: the bronze statue in the likeness of the handsome footballer. Objectively too bad to be true.

It will be for those eyes too close, for that creepy smile, or maybe just for questionable similarity: the fact is that the bust in question, made by the artist Emanuel Santos, sparked the irony of the web, which responded to shots of photomontages and meme.

Some even called into question the good old Cape of Art Attack, the speaker bust of the famous children’s program. The author, in an interview with Globo Esporte, defended himself saying that the same Ronaldo has approved the statue and that basically “not even Jesus loved at all.” Matter of taste, then? Absolutely. But it finds it hard to believe that a lover of aesthetics as CR7 can (honestly) meet again in this funny statue.

How to get to Paros

An unforgettable destination for your summer is called Paros – Paros or –

one of the largest and most beautiful islands of the Cyclades, in the Aegean Sea.

Fantastic beaches, great food, culture and lots of sun, this gives Paros. Yes, but how to reach the white island?

The plane is the fastest means of transport, although not the cheapest.

Unfortunately there are no direct connections from Italy, so it is best to arrive

by plane with a flight to Mykonos or Santorini. From here you can catch a ferry or hydrofoil that in a

couple of hours will dock at the pier in Parikia, capital of Paros. In summer,

however, these goals are very popular so you may find it not quite cheap; alternatively you can then catch a

flight to Athens and from there leave for Parikia from Piraeus or Rafina.

Same thing for the ships, there are no direct connections, so you agree to reach Piraeus and take the ferry or hydrofoil.
