Without a currency, trade within Egypt and

TRADING IN ANCIENT EGYPT . Without a currency, trade within Egypt and with other states was done via the barter system. Rather than buying goods from other countries, like nations around the world do today, trade was, quite literally trade. Egypt might trade 1000 bushels of grain for 500 yards of wood, but they wouldn't pay for wood with currency. While Egyptians did not use currency, they did use a unit of measure that made trading easier. This was the deben. Literally a small token of copper, the deben was used as a measurement to facilitate trade of different items. For example, if a deben was considered to be worth 100 bushels of grain, then those 100 bushels of grain could be traded for anything else that was also considered to be worth one deben. Though this sounds kind of like the deben was currency, it was not. Debens themselves could not be exchanged, and were intrinsically worthless. An Egyptian couldn't, for example, buy 300 bushels of grain just because they happened to have 3 debens lying around; they had to have another amount of another good that was considered worth exactly 3 debens. This system persisted throughout most ancient Egyptian times . A currency system that we know today wasn't adopted till after the Persian invasion in the 6th century B.C. #trade #egypt #aroundtheworld #knowledge #wondersoftheworld #wonderlust #photooftheday #photographer #photography #travel #travelaroundtheworld #trip #travelphotography #money #business

Chichén Itzá era algo más que un lugar de ritos y religión. También era el centro sofisticado de una ciudad y el núcleo del comercio regional. Pero tras siglos de prosperidad y de absorber las influencias de otras culturas como la totelca, la ciudad tuvo un misterioso final.

Pirámide de Chichén Itzá. La estructura más reconocible es el Templo de Kukulkan, también conocido como “El Castillo”. Esta gloriosa pirámide escalonada muestra la precisión e importancia de la astronomía Maya. El templo consta de 365 escalones, uno por cada día del año. Cada uno de los cuatro lados del templo tiene 91 escalones, y la plataforma superior completa los 365.

You would think that after hiking up 850 steps to the Monastery at Petra, I would've called it a day. But, no, instead I climbed 700 more to the High Place of Sacrifice. What an incredible view looking down on the city of Petra. You know what else I did up here? You guessed it, sipped some bedouin coffee. ⁣ 📷 @crazytravelista⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #shareyourjordan #discoverjordan #visitjordan #jordantourism #livelovejordan #ig_jordan #petrajordan #visitpetra #petra #myjordanjourney #wondersoftheworld #tag_jordan #crazytravelistagrouptrip #proudtobeFTB #girlswhohike #idhikethat #shotoniphone

“Pray for Notre Dame” The French Gothic style Notre Dame Cathedral’s ground breaking happened in 1163 & wasn’t completed until 1345. It’s been a staple in Paris ever since. It’s survived The French Revolution, WWI, Hitler’s invasion in WWII, & the basic wear of time itself. If there is one thing everyone should see its that the Notre Dame is a survivor & she will pull through the fires that ripped her apart on 4/15/19 & she will thrive again for future generations. #notredame #savethenotredame #france #paris #parisfrance #sadness #notredamecathedral #notredameparis #notredamechurch #french #cathedral #hunchbackofnotredame #europetravel #ProTravelers #way2ill #fatalframes #canon_official #visualambassadors #visualsgang #shotzdelight #theimaged #thecreative #eurotrip #frenchgothic #canon70d #wondersoftheworld #2015 #summervacation

Day 16: Phoenix Ancient Town, aka Fenghuang Ancient Town, is situated on the western boundary of #Hunan Province in an area of outstanding #naturalbeauty where #mountains, #river and #bluesky prevail. 'Fenghuang' is Chinese for 'Phoenix', the mythical bird of good omen and longevity that is consumed by fire to be re-born again from the flames. #Phoenix Ancient Town is so called as legend has it that two of these #magical birds flew over it and found the Fenghuang Town so beautiful that they hovered there, reluctant to leave. #NatgeoTravel #opentheworld #neverstopexploring #worldwonder #myworldmyway #travel #instatravel #travelgram #travelling #mytravelgram #travelingram #travelphotography #likeforlikes #picoftheday #wondersoftheworld #passionpassport #asian #asianculture #travelasia #china #fenghuang #phuonghoangcotran #fenghuangancientcity

I want to seize my is. And like a bird I sing hallelujah into the air. And my song belongs to no one.
