Qutub Minar

Indians seem to be very proud of Qutub Minar. It is a nice sight to visit, no too crowded even on a Saturday afternoon.

As usual when it is available I decided to hire an audio guide. Audio guides will give you only advantages.

First no pseudo fake official guide is going to annoy you and try to get your money in exchange of dodgy historical facts…

Second the information you receive is probably accurate. It probably doesn’t work in every country but I think I can trust India for not trying to change History.

Lotus Temple

Lotus Temple

The Lotus Temple is a multi-faith praying temple. It is also known as the Bahá’í House of Worship. Apparently these Bahá’í Houses are sharing some characteristics. They should be roughly rounded and have 9 sides. I looked a bit inside and it was obvious that everything was build around the number 9.

Anyone is welcome to enter the Lotus temple and stay as long as they want. You are welcome to pray for whoever you want and speak to whatever god you want and for as long as you want.

In order to fly there I chose to use the direct Finnair (AY) flight from Helsinki to Dubai and to use short Qatar Airways (QR) flights to get to Tehran.

how to speed up social network badge loading

It would load if I would open this page with Firefox or IE though. The weirdest thing is that after loading it from Firefox or IE, I could then load it with Chrome. 

So I decided I would take a different approach and cache the badge somewhere.

Here is how to do it:

First get the URL of the javascript file of your badge.
