Inchie Mexico

The Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos)
is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico,
in particular the Central and South regions,
and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places,
especially the United States.
The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends
to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died,
and help support their spiritual journey.

A common symbol of the holiday is the skull (in Spanish calavera),
which celebrants represent in masks, 
and foods such as sugar or chocolate skulls,
which are inscribed with the name of the recipient on the forehead.
Sugar skulls can be given as gifts to both the living and the dead.

Inchie Finland

A few years ago we visited Finland, so you would think
I had inspiration enough for this inchie...
But the only thing that I really like about Finland are
the beautiful stamps.
I choose this one because it fitted perfect on the inchie.

Inchie Mongolia

Genghis Khan
1st Khagan of the Mongol Empire
(1162 - August 18, 1227)

Genghis Khan was the founder and first Great Khan of the Mongol Empire,
which became the largest contiguous empire in history after his death.
He came to power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of Northeast Asia.
After founding the Empire and being proclaimed "Genghis Khan",
he launched the Mongol invasions that conquered most of Eurasia.
Although known for the brutality of his campaigns
and considered by many to have been a genocidal ruler,
Genghis Khan is also credited with bringing the Silk Road
under one cohesive political environment.
This brought communication and trade from Northeast Asia
into Muslim Southwest Asia and Christian Europe,
thus expanding the horizons of all three cultural areas.

Inchie South Africa

We have made a tour through South Africa, what a beautiful country.
I never realized that there would be penguins there, so I was totally amazed.
When I saw a picture of penguins in South Africa I had to use it for this inchie.

Inchie Vatican City

The pope is the Bishop of Rome and therefore ex officio
the leader of the worldwide Catholic Church.
The primacy of the Roman bishop is largely derived
from his role as the supposed apostolic successor to Saint Peter,
to whom Jesus is said to have given the Keys of Heaven
and the powers of "binding and loosing",
naming him as the "rock" upon which the church would be built.
Since the 1860s, the pope has also been head of state of Vatican City,
a sovereign city-state entirely enclaved within Rome.
The current pope is Francis, who was elected on 13 March 2013
