A Girl Adopted by the Queen Had to Return to Africa



Remember Queen Victoria, the British monarch who once ruled the biggest empire in the world? The time of her reign was the Victorian Era, people donned Victorian fashion, and buildings were constructed with distinctive Victorian architecture. But there’s one thing not many people know about the Queen: she once adopted an African girl, thus saving her life! In 1850, a British emissary arrived in Dahomey. Buying and selling captives were still common in this West African kingdom. In fact, its ruler, King Ghezo, was known to capture people from rival tribes. That’s why Captain Frederick E. Forbes of the Royal Navy was sent there to carry out this noble mission. During his stay, the African king introduced him to one of his most valuable prisoners. And it was… a 7-year-old girl named Aina. TIMESTAMPS:

Why she had to return to Africa 7:59 #Queen #Africa #brightside SUMMARY:
– Fast-forward to 1850, and a British emissary arrives in Dahomey, which would be part of present-day Benin. Buying and selling captives was still common in this West African kingdom. – During his stay, the African king introduced him to one of his most valuable prisoners. And it was… a 7-year-old girl named Aina. – The poor child lost her entire family, while she herself was enslaved. – There were talks that Aina was going to be used in a sacrifice. When the British officer came to know of the girl’s fate, he decided to rescue her at any cost.
– Soon the two of them left for Britain. His ship that they sailed on was called HMS Bonetta, and the child was given a new name in both the captain and the ship’s honor: young Aina was now Sara Forbes Bonetta.
– For a child that hadn’t received any proper schooling, she really was a bright kid! – Sara’s bright mind and charm didn’t go unnoticed by the Queen herself either. They first met in 1850 at Windsor Castle.
– The Queen paid for her education and made sure that she grew up into a real English lady. She cared for her so much that she became her godmother. – When she was 8 years old, was sent to Sierra Leone, which was a British colony at the time. She attended a missionary school there for the next 4 years.
– By that time, Captain Forbes had, unfortunately, passed away, so Sara was sent to live with a missionary named Reverend Schoen and his wife. – When she turned 19, the Queen decided it was time for Sally to get married. A suitable match was found in no time, and that was Captain James Pinson Labulo Davies, a British naval officer and businessman.
– Since Davies lived and worked in Lagos, which was yet another British colony in Africa, Sara followed him there and started working as a teacher. – Sara Forbes Bonetta lived an extraordinary life. Wherever she went, whatever challenges she faced, she remained a true lady and an aristocrat in her own right.

All 220 Citizens Live and Work in the Same Building!



Imagine that you don’t have to spend hours in traffic jams on your way to the office. No need to be squeezed in a crowd of commuters at rush hour. To get to the supermarket, you don’t even have to go out. Just press a button in the elevator or walk down the stairs if you’re in an athletic mood. Sound like a miracle? In fact, there’s a town in Alaska whose citizens have everything they need under one roof. It’s Whittier, maybe the strangest town you’ve ever seen. Whittier is situated on the coast of Prince William Sound in the Gulf of Alaska. All of Whittier’s 220 citizens live in one building; a tower of condominiums. Citizens don’t only live in the same building, but go to work, school, and do their shopping by just pressing different buttons in the elevator. Well, actually there’s one guy, Paul, who thinks he’s special and lives in a camper nearby. TIMESTAMPS:
No need to go outside 0:51
Why it's not easy to live here 1:32
A paradise for introverts? Not really. 2:13
So why everything you need is under one roof? 3:27
What made these people come to this town 4:22
Why tourists like Whittier 7:25 #strangeplaces #weirdplaces #brightside Preview photo credit: Whittier, Alaska, USA. All Whittier residents living in one building: By Daniel Reiner/Shutterstock.com, https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/whittier-alaska-usa-september-13-2013-1321387304
Animation is created by Bright Side. SUMMARY:
– Whittier is situated on the coast of Prince William Sound in the Gulf of Alaska. It was named after the glacier nearby.
– All of Whittier’s 220 citizens live in one building; a tower of condominiums.
– The 14-story building is called Begich towers, and it has pretty much everything you need in life: a police station, 2 supermarkets, town offices, a covered playground, laundry, post office, and a clinic. – Whittier is isolated from the rest of the world, and lives mostly off natural resources. Fishing is the main activity of the locals, and one of their main income generators. – Although the climate is more moderate here than deeper in Alaska, thanks to the ocean, winters are very snowy, and summers are rainy.
– You might think that it’s a paradise for introverts, where you can get lost forever. But you’ll hardly find a more interactive and social town than Whittier.
– The town was founded in 1943, and the location was chosen not for its magnificent beauty, but for the natural isolation. The town was built as a defense facility for the US military. – Several standard houses were built for the staff working in the harbor there, with very simple architecture. Buckner Building was constructed for Engineer Troops. – The army changed its plans after March 27, 1964, when the Great Alaskan earthquake, also known as the Good Friday Earthquake, occurred.
– After that, the military forces left Whittier, but the people who’d worked in the harbor and other facilities, stayed. In 1969, – Some Whittier citizens go to work in Anchorage, which is 65 miles (105 km) away. A two-way trip through the tunnel isn’t cheap – $15, and they must buy an annual pass for $500.
– There are 200 apartments in the Begich Towers, and half of them are empty now. Some people own an apartment, but live in a different place, like Anchorage. Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ Subscribe to Bright Side : https://goo.gl/rQTJZz
