The images from this photo shoot in Brezzanone, Italy are incredibly clever. Not only does it capture the beautiful vista, the ingenious spatial contraption alsos for people to be on this playful tableau without detracting from the setting. That table maximizes the amount of landcape to be seen in the photograph, and I sincerely wish I had one.

Europe’s divisions are indeed grave. But counting the ex-communist countries as a single category is outdated and damaging
the term 'ex/communist' is obsolete .like we could say "ex Nazi Germany" !23 yrs have passed though !

This video was insightful because it can be really challenging to classify a region in certain parts of the world. Having a simple eastern and western Europe made a tiny amount of sense at the time of WWII but it hasn't made any sense since then. The boundaries in the southeastern part of Europe have changed on more than one occasion over the past 70 years and there are still border disputes between religious and ethnic groups that could result in new countries any day. I found the narrator's ideas funny but still better than the traditional region that already exist.
I personally group regions by the types of people that live in them and share very similar characteristics. Grouping parts of Europe is very hard because of the major cultural differences all over and because I am not highly educated on all of them. I find it hard to consider Greece a part of Europe at times but it is also hard to consider it a part of anywhere else. The countries that border Russia all seem similar to me because I don't have extensive knowledge of their cultures, although it is unfair that they are assumed to be completely impoverished countries.
With the constantly shifting boundaries and movement of people, Europe is very hard to group into regions and that is okay because regions do not have huge effects on the way the world is run, they only make it easier to break down into pieces.
This video makes a good point about where we arbitrarily draw lines on a map. He uses different groupings to show how silly this can be. His point is that Eastern Europe no longer really exists and we should no longer use the term. He then suggests a few different terms to use to group countries in Europe. My favorite was the grouping called Scared of Russia.
This video shows how difficult it is to categorize and group regions together. We tend categorize Eastern Europe as a group due to former political affiliations with the Soviet Union, but this is unfair as these nations are varied ethnically, economically, and politically. Plus, most, if not all, of these nations resented Soviet rule and grouping them due to it is somewhat insulting. Other groupings are not as neat on a map. For example, grouping Europe economically shows a couple Eastern European countries in the upper half and a number of Western European countries like Italy, Spain, and Greece in the lower half.
