Good morning to you all out there from us here at Meditravelist in Istanbul, Turkey, as things have picked up a bit due to all the traffic flowing through our doors due to the preparation for summer, we had lagged behind with our articles but we are back on.
We have to start with one of my favourite tennis players of all time, Rafael Nadal.
Now Rafael Nadal has just clinched his 12th victory in the French Open Title. The Spaniard maintained his stranglehold on the French Open by beating Austrian fourth seed Dominic Thiem in four sets to lift a 12th men’s singles title. Rafael Nadal at 33 years old is the first player to win 12 single titles at the same Grand Slam and now has won 18 majors over all. “I can’t explain what I have achieved and how I feel. It’s a dream”, those are the words of Nadal. He also added “to play for the 1st time in 2005, I never thought in 2019 I’d still be here. It’s an incredible moment and a very special for me.

On other news we go over to Hong Kong, Hong Kong’s protest movement was on life support. Then the government revived it.
In 2014 demonstrations in Hong Kong shut down part of the city for several months, activists had been jailed while others faced prosecution over the demonstrations. Pro-democracy lawmakers had been kicked out of office on various range of grounds.
Polls taken found that the confidence in the city’s future was at a 16-year low.
Along came the extradition bill, which simply meant that Hong Kongers were to be extradited to china on a range of offenses. More than a million people took to the streets on Sunday to protest this bill.
Critics say the move would make anyone in Hong Kong vulnerable to being grabbed by the Chinese authorities for political reasons or inadvertent business offences, undermining the city’s semi-autonomous legal system.
The protest was motivated, in part, by fears the city would be subject to a china style rule of law, or rather lack of thereof.
Fear of china is what drive people to the streets on Sunday.
Lawyers, business people, middle class, middle-aged first-time protesters were all on the streets of Hong Kong on Sunday.
