The Mosque was built between 1660 and 1670 on what was the highest point in the old city. The minarets of the Mohabbat Khan Mosque were frequently used in Sikh times for hanging prisoners, as a substitute for the gallows. Following the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, refugee tribal elders would congregate in the mosque in order to forge unity amongst Afghans against the Soviets. Peshawar Cantt railway station to Rawalpindi junction distance is almost 180 Km. 14 DN Awam Express is ready to Go Karachi but our journey till Rawalpindi. The video is created for whom never been Khyber
    . Pakhton khah, or on This train route Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa formerly the North- West Frontier Province, or NWFP, runs for over 1,100 kilometers along the border with Afghanistan. Peshawar is the capital, and the heart of
    the province is the fertile Vale of Peshawar, which is watered by the Kabul and Swat rivers. Area is almost 74,521 sq km, Population 30.52 Million. Kabul River rises in the Sanglakh Range in Afghanistan, separated from the watershed of the Helmand by the Unai Pass. It is the main river in the eastern part of Afghanistan. It flows 700 km before joining the Indus River
    near Attock. It passes through the cities of Kabul, Chaharbagh,
    Jalalabad, and (flowing into Pakistan some 30 km north of the Khyber Pass) Nowshera. The major tributaries of the Kabul River are
    the Logar, Panjshir, Kunar and Alingar and Bara Rivers Khair Abad Kund is the name of a small town,
    which is located between River Indus and River Kabul. Govt. has constructed a recreational park
    on this spot. The park is known as Kund Park. It is situated on the place, where Attock
    (Punjab) ends and Khyber Pakhtonkhaw starts. There is a small zoo inside the Kund Park Attock Fort was built at Attock Khurd during
    the reign of Akbar the Great from 1581 to 1583 under the supervision of Khawaja Shamsuddin
    Khawafi to protect the passage of the River Indus The Indus River is one of the longest rivers in Asia. Originating in the Tibetan Plateau (China)
    in the vicinity of Lake Mansarovar, the river runs a course through the Ladakh region of
    Jammu and Kashmir (India), towards Gilgit-Baltistan and then flows in a southerly direction along
    the entire length of Pakistan to merge into the Arabian Sea near the port city of Karachi
    in Sindh. It is the longest river and national river
    of Pakistan. Attock Bridge is situated between Attock Khurd and Khairabad Kund on Indus river. It is commonly known as “Old Attock Bridge”. This bridge is one of the most important strategic and commercial crossing on the Indus River between Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces, hence was heavily fortified. It was originally designed by Sir Guildford
    Molesworth and was opened to traffic on 24 May 1883 Afghans in Pakistan primarily constitute refugees
    who have fled wars in Afghanistan, but there are small numbers of Afghan asylum seekers,
    migrant workers, merchants, businesspeople, exchange students and diplomats.Most were
    born and raised in Pakistan and are under age 30, but are still considered citizens
    of Afghanistan.They are under the protection of the United Nations High Commissioner for
    Refugees and have been given legal status in Pakistan until the end of 2017

    River Powered Cable Ferry in Germany Zero Emissions! My 1st Video!

    November 12, 2019


    okay kids here’s what we have we got
    this ferry over here the entire ferry is powered by the river itself there’s no
    engine on the ferry it has an electrical system on there where it
    allows the gate to come up and down on its the ferry has the gate actually the
    cars come onto the ferry two euros 50 is what you pay for the
    operator to operate the ferry across the river and it angles by these two chains
    that are connected to this cable up here and I don’t know if you can see it i’ll see if i can zoom
    in on this thing there we go hang on one second there’s this cable that the
    ferry is connected to here we go hang on come on come on in that comes across
    there this it comes across the river the river pushes the ferry across because
    it’s angled in such a way that it catches the current and it comes across
    through at this exact angle it takes a about two minutes and there’s this paved
    ramp on this side he’s coming it is pretty cool there’s no power whatsoever
    supplied to the ferry it’s pure current energy from the river itself that brings
    it across it’s got a little life boat hanging off the back end of it there you’ve got this little shed on there
    where he stays either out of the rain or out of the wind or out of the Sun I
    suppose and he brings it across it’s coming you probably hear the
    water lapping underneath it and as he approaches the bank he will
    lower his ramp onto the pavement so the car can drive off. What a system and it’s
    privately run and operated and he’s open seven days a week probably till 7, 8
    o’clock every night and he just ferries folks across the river so much for a car
    so much for pedestrians so much for a bike motorbike whatever here comes the
    gate the cars are starting their engines Here he is there they go look at that.

    القطار والسيارة – فكرة عامة Metro/Train V.S car an idea

    November 8, 2019


    We packed our bags and to the airport we drove … Once our plane landed safely the question was, how would we travel in Europe? raveling by car in Europe is fun but …. I have forgotten everything about manual car I can’t drive I think I am stressed, but it is fun Italian announcement in Metro If you do not want tension like me, book a reasonable ticket on a train. This regional train go through the regions of Italy with spectacular views of green mountains, snow-covered peaks and unglazed windows that cross your vast distances at speeds exceeding 250 Kilometres per hour. High speed but journey may take hours with you These trains are equipped with plugs to charge your mobile and comfortable seats for your sleep. If you use the metro or underground trains, you will not miss the fun. If there is no view, there is very nice music Trains in Europe connect their cities like airports, or more crowded. You can book your journey from Milan to some Swiss cities to find yourself in Paris hours on the banks of river and balconies You may see trains over and over the ground, but when you return to the airport you may have to take a taxi or drive your own car to the airport to avoid delays and whatever your decision you wish to reach your destination safely at your appointed date. I also wish you a pleasant follow-up of my videos and my YouTube channel … do not forget to like Blake, share Bashir and subscribe to my channel to get you all new ….

    89. Crazy Low Bridge on Droitwich Canal & Narrowboat Experience Scores

    November 7, 2019


    Before I start this week’s vlog, to
    celebrate the Journey with Jono and Narrowboat Experience collaboration we’ve
    created a series of clothing and mug designs you can purchase. There are both
    Narrowboat Experience and Journey with Jono t-shirts and my favourite, an Alice,
    Munchy and Molly t-shirt and mug. The limited edition items are only available
    until the 1st of December and there’s a link in the description below to the Art
    By Anna-Marie page. Good morning. Well, today I am leaving Droitwich Spa.
    I’m going through a couple of swing bridges. Some of them are open, some of
    them are closed and about five or six locks but Droitwich Spa has been
    a nice place two moor up. The basin is really good. It’s completely secure.
    You have your British Waterways key to get through the gates there. There’s all
    the main necessities in the town. Lots of different variety of shops and takeaways
    and restaurants. Main supermarkets Waitrose, Morrison’s are very, very close
    to the canal. [ Music ] Leaving the basin within the town, right
    away we need to travel through three swing bridges before heading out onto a
    small, narrow stretch of the River Salwarpe. Then as a bit of a surprise, is the
    M5 motorway bridge-tunnel and just after it are some more locks
    including a staircase lock just south of Body Brook. Let’s hope that name isn’t a
    reality! Sweeping past Droitwich Spa Marina towards Hanbury Bottom, Middle and
    Top Locks before turning onto the Worcester and Birmingham Canal at Hanbury
    Junction. I’ve been a little bit surprised with the lack of mooring on
    the Droitwich Barge Canal. Purely because of those high weeds. It proved to be quite
    difficult to find mooring spots. There were probably three spots, maybe four in
    total all the way from the River Severn to Droitwich Spa itself. There are a
    couple more on the way out, going towards Birmingham and Worcester Canal but
    if they just cut the weeds back, it would be a lot better. There were some really
    nice mooring spots with beautiful views and lovely and quiet you can be really
    remote, even though you’re quite close to the town but we couldn’t moor
    there because of the weeds. So I don’t know if that’s on purpose or if that’s
    just the way they want this canal to look so, some canals you can moor up 99%
    of it. The only places you’re not allowed two moor are when there’s designated signs,
    at winding holes, lock landings, water points, weirs, that sort of thing. [ Engine revving ] You’re pleased with that? Kath: It’s alright. No bumping, no scratching.
    Kath: I think something fell over inside. So I’m travelling behind Kath today. Anna-Marie is up ahead dealing with the swing bridges
    and the locks and I am going to sweep up behind and close them all. We thought we might be able to do both
    the swing bridges at the same time and just go straight through but there’s too
    many people around, walking through the park, taking dogs for a walk and they
    would probably get a bit annoyed. So we are going to do them individually. It looks like these swing bridges are a little bit more complicated, or a bit
    difficult than originally thought. So it’s my turn to get off my boat and
    help Anna-Marie, see what on earth is going on here. So what’s wrong with this one do you think? It’s the same as the last one.
    I think what happens is they shut the gates well but
    overnight, the gate moves a little bit and it jams the padlock in. So I need
    somebody on this side pushing like, just doing pumps of pushing it so I can
    wriggle the padlock out. I am doing the bridge wiggle. There we go, it looks like it’s done. Kath: Two for that one as well Jono. Two for that one, okay, that’s brilliant.
    Thank you. Are we catching up?
    Kath: Yes, we’re definitely gonna win. [ Music ] Today Kath and Anna-Marie from The Narrowboat Experience are running a scoreboard for who helps the most at locks.
    Of course, I’m expecting huge bias as there are two of them! [ Music ] We’re now in the river section. There are
    a couple of warnings in the book about not mooring up along this stretch
    because if the river floods, it rises very rapidly and there’s lots of high
    walls all up all around to contain the water and obviously the two locks to
    stop it flooding the canal itself but today it’s as flat as a pancake. [ Music ] Okay. This is when having a chimney or
    anything that’s high up on a boat could prove difficult because the tunnel ahead
    is extremely low. There is a barrier this side to tell you and I think it’s going
    to hit my aerial so I might turn my aerial on its side and just go really slowly
    and hope for the best. I can imagine if you’ve got high top
    boxes or anything quite high on the roof this is where you’ll get stuck. [ Horn Beeps ] [ Music ] This is crazy low for a tunnel. I’ve
    never known anything like it. Going through tunnels and bridges like
    that, out of the blue make you really think about the amount of things that
    you should have on your roof and how high they should be. I think I need to
    look into changing my solar panel brackets and all it would take is another
    tunnel like that, or a bit more water, or I might not have filled up with water
    this morning and the the nose of the boat would have been higher and I could
    have been into it in a bit of a pickle. So, I think it’s about time I changed my
    brackets. [ Music ] She’s all yours now! Anna-Marie: Awsome!
    I must say it is
    nice to see other people controlling Molly and Molly actually listening to them
    and doing as they say as well because obviously, there’s the owner, dogs will
    predominantly always do what their owner says but will they do what other people
    say and seeing Anna-Marie in a distance with Molly and
    telling Molly to sit and she actually sitting and following her rules, it’s
    quite nice to see. Good old Molly. Well done, I’m proud of her. We met viewers Graham and Bev right at
    the top of the staircase ready to go down and it’s always great to meet
    viewers as you’re traveling around the system but he had a double whammy today
    because he obviously also watches Narrowboat Experience and he saw me as
    well as those two and he was like, whoa!! So that was really nice to see. [ Music ] [ Gushing water sound ] It’s really peculiar, it’s almost as
    though we’re draining the pound. I suppose we are a little bit as much as a lock.
    It just feels like we’ve opened some huge paddles and it’s just emptying the
    whole canal. That’s really weird. it’s never usually this strong. So just as I go under this bridge, I do a
    hard turn left and then we’re on to the Worcester and Birmingham Canal. I’ve moored up on some Armco and Narrowboat Experience, Lazy Days have just moored up ahead of me and we’re going to
    sit and stay here for a couple of days. We’ve got a bit of work to do. I’ve got a
    bit of editing, they’ve got painting and things to do so,
    finally, that was a tough journey today. Even though it was only a relatively
    small amount of locks, the last three locks – the start of the Droitwich Canal
    from this direction, we’re really slow and because they’re very deep locks, they
    needed to fill side pounds and back again and it was quite busy, there
    were two boats coming down as well so, pleased to get through those and even
    though it’s sort of lunchtime, it’s absolutely shattered. This week I’d like
    to thank three top-level Patreon supporters. Stuart Bell from County
    Durham in the North East of England. Mark Gaultiere from Ohio in the United States
    and Joan Smith from Texas in the United States. Thank you so much for your
    support. In the next vlog, I give the helm of Alice to Anna-Marie.
    Scary! and I explore the broadcasting facility for long wave and medium wave
    transmissions at the Droitwich Transmitting Station. Until next time, see
    you later.

    Detroit Light Rail – Bright Side 3

    October 17, 2019


    Our next segment will focus on an exciting
    project coming soon to Detroit. The M1 Woodward Avenue light rail project will connect downtown
    Detroit with the city limits at 8 mile road. It will be one of the first mass transit light
    rail projects in the state of Michigan. So the city of Detroit in 2006 started analyzing.
    If we’re going to build rapid transit somewhere in Detroit, where should be do it and what
    should it be? And they decided after several years of study that it should be a light rail
    type of line and it should be right along Woodward Avenue. So for at least five years now the city of
    Detroit has been working on developing light rail. A lot of cities around the country have
    a light rail. It’s an on street rail line where the rail is built right into the ground
    and there are overhead electric lines. So its’ a lot like a bus in that it drives on
    the street, but it’s a lot faster and generally more reliable, more attractive, more convenient
    than regular busses are. Fully a third of the people within the city
    of Detroit don’t have their own cars, and so they really need to have other transportation
    choices. But even more so, in city after city around the country in communities that have
    developed light rail you’ve seen enormous economic development. People want to live
    and work and shop and play near convenient public transit. And so developers know that
    and they really build a lot of new hotels and lofts and condos and restaurants in much
    more dense, walkable communities. So we really believe that this Woodward light
    rail can be an economic development catalyst for the city of Detroit. They actually just completed a critical step
    on developing an environmental impact study which the federal government requires, and
    making the final decisions about where exactly the line’s going to go, where the stops are
    going to be. They’ve lined up most of the funding at this point and they’re going to
    be moving into the detailed engineering. Construction could start as early as next year and should
    be… we should be riding in about 2015. I really see Detroit and really this whole
    region is at a bit of a fork in the road. We’ve obviously had some enormous difficulties
    and there is a chance that if we don’t make some major changes in how we develop and how
    we invest in making Detroit a place people really want to be, we really could continue
    down on a downward spiral. But I think we’re also at a cusp of something
    much greater. There’s so many people who are excited to make a positive difference in Detroit
    and are trying their little piece at a time. I don’t think that the light rail will necessarily
    solve all of Detroit’s problems but it could really be a catalyst to focusing a lot of
    the development, a lot of the new energy, a lot of the new entrepreneurial spirit along
    this Woodward corridor and really demonstrate what’s possible in Detroit in a very exciting
    and positive way. I really do think that this Woodward light
    rail project can be a catalyst for something great for Detroit

    The Train Through Hairatan 🚄 |🇦🇫 NATO in Afghanistan

    September 20, 2019


    Bringing goods over land from far away, the
    train is a common sight in many Asian countries. But due to war, poverty and the fear of invasion
    the age of the railway passed Afghanistan by. Until today.
    A modest seventy-five kilometers of track is enough to connect the neighbouring country
    of Uzbekistan with Afghanistan, passing over the Soviet constructed “friendship bridge”
    on the river Amu and passing through the river port of Hairatan.
    Completed in less than a year in late 2010, the cargo line has been a team effort. Built
    by Uzbeks, funded by the Asian Development bank and facilitated by Afghans.
    “Ninety people, including the deputy of railway of Uzbekistan, who’s now the governor
    of Arqaam, came here and we provided them a base and security. We also cleared the area
    from mines. If we weren’t working hard on this we could have lost this huge achievement.”
    For a land-locked country like Afghanistan, a blossoming economy depends heavily on import
    and export, which relies for the main part on huge convoys of trucks going in and out
    of the country. As well as huge delays at customs stations, these convoys are also vulnerable
    to attack. As the carriages are sealed at origin, the
    train doesn’t need to be checked by customs, making it much quicker. Haji Najeeb is also
    proud of the security his town has provided to their new technology.
    “Discipline and security like we have here, you won’t find in 364 districts of Afghanistan.
    At night people’s doors are open; our businessmen come and go by night or day without any anxiety.
    They load, unload and transfer their goods.” The train’s terminus is the historic city
    of Mazar-e-Sharif, the capital of the border province of Balkh, but ambitions for Afghanistan’s
    railways stretch much further. After three years of training, Uzbekistan
    will hand over control to the newly created Afghan Railyway Department to preside over
    plans to extend the railway lines west through Herat to Iran and east through gate of Torkham
    to Pakistan. And although the train is strictly cargo-only
    for now, there have been a few passengers already. “Recently the chief of railways in Uzbekistan
    visited and I personally went with him in train until Mazar airport. The construction
    work in one hundred per cent finished without any problems. It’s ready for use, so now we’re
    just waiting for the Afghan authorities to open it officially.” And perhaps it’s not too hard to imagine that
    this new transcontinental cargo silk road will one day connect Afghanistan beyond its
    neighbours and to the rest of the world. This is Ruth Owen, in Afghanistan, for the
    NATO Channel.
