The Nile River is believed to be the longest river in the world


This river is perhaps one of the most famous in the world, thanks to the

thousands of years of civilization, which have been hosted on its banks.

The Nile goes through 10 countries: Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo,

Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda.

 

There are a number of long rivers in the world, but it can be unexpectedly

difficult to determine the length of a river. Since many rivers join together
in river systems, it isn't always easy to say where one individual river begins.
Clean river project
We visited Oil company and learned a lot of new and interesting things about this black natural wonder. We would like to share.
        In today's world the word 'oil' - one of the most popular and commonly used. Although the majority of it means to drive a car, in fact it is the main source of energy for mankind. Together with the gas oil is a key raw material in organic chemical industry.
       Civilization just fail if the oil reserves will over until mankind prepare for energy alternatives.
       Mankind has used oil since ancient times. Of course, that ancient cultures use oil as an adhesive to strengthen and protect the objects from the water. Sumerians bitumen mosaic decorated walls and floors of housing. Later  in Mesopotamia  people isolated wooden boats by bitumen. Ancient Egyptian people used resin for embalm mummies. In 1500 b.c. liquid oil was used for lighting.
         In 600 b.c. in Chinese salt wells were discovered oil and gas. It was the first man founded underground oil deposits - oil fields. Chineses used bamboo as a tubes for oil transportation to the right place. The Romans also used containers filled with oil as a weapon
          Already at the end of the fifteenth century Chineses managed  to dig up to 600 meters deep wells. 1650 in Romania was the first in Europe to dig oil wells. 
          Oil industry began to develop in America, the nineteenth century. At that time the territory of Western Pennsylvania (USA), known as the Oil Creec in which the earth's surface sunkdavosi oil, businessmen began to build dams and to collect the water, which was accumulated of oil. It was soaked cloth, then drill and extracted as oil sold under two dollars (!) Per gallon (1 gallon = 3.79 liters). It awakened passions. 1854 was established the first American oil company in Pennsylvania. 
          The actual age of oil started in the twentieth century, when was invented internal combustion engine. It was technical revolution of human history. Gasoline and diesel fuel has become a highly popular product.

RED GLOVES
 
      We have buildings in the city of Klaipeda, which are  now in a bad condition few years of time. It looks like nobody takes care of it. Children asked me why do these buildings look like they do. They don't like this situation, because this is a shame to have such buildings in our nice city.
     So, we put on red gloves and took pictures of these buildings. Our aim is to arouse attention.
