A dining room with a hint of Krishna, Croome Court
England

Through the history of Croome Court, from the Coventry family to the Croome Heritage Trust and the National Trust, it has had many owners. Originally designed by Capability Brown and Robert Adam, one of it's later owners was the Hare Kirishna movement. In this room you can see where they have left their own personal mark on the building. Originally the plaster fruit decoractions would have been plain white, but they decieded to brighten the place up by adding just a touch of colour. Also other sections of white wall were painted bright colours too, but a later owner decided to return this part back to white. It is not until you see this room in context with the rest of the house that you realise how much a "breath of fresh air" this room provides.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
