This girl was crying and begging the policeman not to hit her or any of her friends. Then the policeman started crying as well and he said to her: “You just hold on girl.”

The photo comes from protests happening in Bulgaria right now. Students are protesting poverty and corruption in Bulgaria’s Socialist-backed government, chaining themselves to the doors of Sofia University and clashing with police outside of parliament.

The Azure Window and the Blue Hole - Gozo, Malta

Two geological wonders sit side-by-side on the Maltese island of Gozo: the Azure Window and the Blue Hole.

The window is a towering rock formation reaching 328 feet high with a precarious table structure that makes it popular for cliff divers. Yet below is another wonder with a collapsed underwater limestone cave known as the Blue Hole. It’s accessed by divers through a 262-foot tunnel, and underwater you can find a beautiful array of marine life including octopi, fire worms, and sea horses.

Unfortunately, the Azure Window is wearing down. In April of 2012, it got a little wider when part of it broke off. But there’s apparently already a plan if the worst happens, and upon its collapse it will be rechristened the Azure Pinnacle. 

Plan a trip to the Azure Window and Blue Hole, on Atlas Obscura…
