A combination of factors ranging from conflict to diplomatic isolation have unintentionally turned the Eritrean capital into a cycling paradise.
Asmara only has about 500,000 inhabitants, which combined with low salaries, high import taxes and fuel shortages means the city has few vehicles. Those you do see often tend to be from a different age.

Roads are not only relatively empty of cars. Locals lament the departure of great numbers of young Eritreans who have left over the last 20 years because of hardships brought by regional conflicts and enforced national service under a government that brooks little dissent.

As a result of its circumstances, Asmara offers a very different landscape compared to many African cities congested with traffic. This, combined with the wonderful climate, makes it a dream for cyclists to get around. "Cycling is part of our culture," says a 25-year-old man.

Asmaraʼs architecture is also admired and it was recently made a Unesco World Heritage Site for its striking art deco buildings, a legacy of the countryʼs time as an Italian colony from 1897 until 1943.

Bike repair shops abound all over Asmara. Eritrea has a long history of self-reliance that began during its 30-year war for independence from Ethiopia, after which its international isolation has made importing bicycles and spare parts extremely expensive.

Eritreans ride bicycles of all kinds and colours: mountain-bikes, city bikes, racing bikes. Young and old, women and men, athletes and housewives - all seem to embrace the "bicicletta", the word for bicycle in the local language, Tigrinya, that is borrowed from Italian.

Those who rely on public transport have to endure long waits before jumping on an extremely crowded bus. "Buses are so old and so few," says Salam, a 30-year-old graduate. "Having a bicycle is life-saving here."

Environmental sustainability has long been promoted by the government. This has included limiting plastic production and usage, reforestation campaigns, safeguarding the countryʼs green areas and distributing bikes imported from Dubai and China.

For many Eritreans money is tight, and even if vehicles are available, bicycles remain the most affordable mode of transport.

The recent peace deal with Ethiopia in July 2018 resulted in the border opening for the first time in 20 years. Now cheap Ethiopian merchandise is sold all over the country, lowering the cost of living.

A combination of conflict, diplomatic isolation and UN sanctions, lifted after nine years last November, means there are still shortages of many products. Lack of fuel has resulted in cars and buses often having to be parked up for a long time, leaving people few choices other than walking or pedalling to get around.

Cycling is the most popular sport among Eritreans. Introduced by the Italians, competitive cycling is a source of pride among the population. The Eritrean national team, which includes Mosana Debesay pictured below in Austria last September, is extremely successful in international races.

The recent rapprochement with Ethiopia has left many Eritreans hoping that the economy can develop faster, making everyday life in Asmara easier.

7/16/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The #Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Hear the Word of The Lord, all you insolent children, and give ear, all you desolate houses, for thus says The Lord to those who dwell within the churches of men: Shall you come and stand before Me in your #temples made by #human #hands, and say you are delivered, then go in that selfsame hour and #pollute My name by all you say and do?! Desecration! Blasphemy!
How dare you kneel before Me in #repentance, as a #show before your brethren, adorning yourselves with pretense! You are not delivered! Your offerings are not accepted, neither will I #hear your pleas. For you have surely taken the name of The Lord in vain! For not one of you strives to make your repentance full, nor are you willing to #forgive all who have sinned against you. Thus your repentance has become unrepentance, and your words #wind.
Behold, you quote My Word
Instant in and out of #season,
Yet not one of you obeys My Word!...
As a #wife who ceases not from committing
#Adultery, you continue to defile My name
By your corrupt doctrines and filthy traditions,
Even to the embracing of all these
#Holidays of #men, which I hate!...
STOP BREAKING MY COMMANDMENTS!
For they do remain atop your marred #heads...
Says The Lord.
Churches of men, know you not, to #worship anything or anyone other than The #Father through The #Son is false worship?! Know you not, to #love any #image or #material #possession more than Me is #idol worship?! And to uphold any #tradition which stems from #idolatry is idolatry?! YOU WORSHIP YOURSELVES!
Churches of men, know you not, to #speak of Me falsely or to call on My name in unbelief or for a pretense, or to #associate My name or The Messiah’s with any #doctrine or #tradition which I have not decreed, is to take the name of The Lord in vain?! DESECRATION! #ANTICHRIST!
Churches of men, know you not, the seventh day of the #week is the day you shall #remember and keep #holy, and do no works therein except that which is #good and upholds the cause of the fatherless, the #widow and the #needy?! SUNDAY IS NOT THE #SABBATH! SATURDAY YOU SHALL KEEP! For I do NOT change! Nor have I commanded any other day, neither has the thought entered My #mind! How long shall you cleave to the #harlot?! How long shall you walk in her ways?!
Churches of men, shall you continue to dishonor your father and mother, by all you say and do?! UNGRATEFUL HYPOCRITES! Shall you continue to commit #murder?! For you hate the one who rebukes at the gate, and despise the one who speaks a #message from God. Thus in the hating of your #brother, you are all guilty of murder in your hearts! Behold, even some of you, who call of yourselves Christian, are in favor of #capital #punishment. Yet again I say to you, even to murder the murderer is murder! Worse still there are some among you, who are in favor of this so-called “right to choose”! THEY HAVE CHOSEN DEATH! THEY HAVE SURELY CONDEMNED THEMSELVES! And all who #cast their lot with those who murder the #innocent shall be left outside The City! I AM THE LORD.
Churches of men, shall you continue to commit #adultery in your hearts without pause?! Know you not, to even look upon another with #lust in your #heart is adultery?! Behold, even every #doctrine and #tradition #born of #men is adultery against God! How long shall you #rob Me and #steal from your #neighbor, for you do always #bear false #witness of Me, lying to your neighbor and to yourself! For I tell you the #truth, you know neither Me nor My will, nor have you heard My #voice at any #time! And shall you continue, without ceasing, to #covet that which you do not possess?! Be set apart from this #world, and come out of the churches of men. Only then will you begin to #see, only then shall you receive #ears to #hear.
O arrogant #generation, how shall
I #humble you that you may be saved?!...
For I tell you the truth, only those who are
Truly converted in their hearts shall be delivered;
Only those who have the #Testimony of The #Messiah
AND keep The #Commandments shall escape...
Thus I have shaken the #dust off the #feet of
My #messengers as a #testament against you,
I have set apart My #elect...
And of your #houses,
See, I have left them to you desolate...
Says The Lord.

A Banksy painting "self-destructed" Friday evening on the auction podium at Sotheby’s New Bond Street location in London after being sold for 1.04 million pounds.
The spray-painted canvas "Girl With Balloon" was subjected to furious bidding at the Contemporary Art Evening Sale with a winning bid by telephone, fetching more than three times its pre-sale estimate a](https://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/styles/inline_image_desktop/public/inline-images/Banksy%20Instagram.png?itok=Rqztnned "enter image title here")nd a record price for the mysterious artist. Shortly after the auction was concluded, an alarm from within the painting sounded, with most of the artwork emerging from the bottom in strips. Hidden within the base of the frame was a shredder.
"We’ve just been Banksy’ed," Alex Branczik, Sotheby’s European head of contemporary art, said at a press conference after the auction.
"We have not experienced this situation in the past . . . where a painting spontaneously shredded, upon achieving a [near-]record for the artist. We are busily figuring out what this means in an auction context," he said.
Banksy, who remains one of the most mysterious artists of this era, began his career spray-painting buildings in England and has become a global figure. Some of his works include two policemen kissing, armed riot police with yellow smiley faces, and a chimpanzee with a sign displaying the words "Laugh now, but one day I'll be in charge."
A post on Banksy's official Instagram page showed the moment when auction house officials and bidders were stunned when the artwork self-destructed. He titled the post "Going, going, gone..."
Social media immediately responded.
kimsingh, an Instagram user, said, "You have consistently shown the courage to thumb your nose at the commercialism of art. Bravo !!"
Another user asked, "Was it supposed to stop halfway or did it jam?"
evrthmover said, "Fucking historical."
Banksy had made his feelings known about the commercial art world in a recent masterpiece titled "I Can’t Believe You Morons Actually Buy This Shit."
