    Funny you should mention Niki de Saint Phalle, we have a huge exhibit of her work here in Atlanta at the Botanical Garden...it's quite fantastic!

    We'll be in Italy in two weeks, Venice July 5-7, Lake Como area July 7-9, the Cinque Terre July 9-11. Are you in any of those areas?

    I was born in London of Italian orgin. I lived in Rome for many years.

    In Italy I love any restaurant with outdoor seating and a good view, where you can sit in the sun with a nice plate of Spaghetti and clams and bottle of dry white wine. From here you can enjoy the panorama or watch the world go by. Superb!

    In England, I have say that Cornwall is very beautiful, it has it all, the Ocean, sandy beaches picturesqe towns and the great British countryside, if your lucky it can be sunny too. : )

    I'm from the Philippines and I love all the beaches in our country-- Boracay, Batangas, Panglao, Mactan... there are a lot of beautiful places here, who would've thought a country this small would have so many wonderful places to take photographs of?

    One of my favorites - Seliger lake.
    You can see its beauty here:

    Our country is too big to choose few places:)))

    Actually, I found Taymyr the most impressive, but unfortunately don't have any pictures from there. Old ones don't show all the colorful beauty of nature.

    I have heard like people in Singapore speak like "OK lah", is that correct?
    They add "lah" at the end of a speech and it makes it little funny. like...
    "U lidat think meeh?" means "Do you think like that"...

  • Re: Your favourite place in your country (Netherlands)?
    Amsterdam, the capital, where I live in.
    For a region I choose the south of Limburg (Zuid-Limburg here)
    It has nice landscapes and offers even 'mountains' (no, not really maybe..) in Holland..
    Our country is so flat..so I like to come in the very very south, where we have some nice sloping hills, beautiful nature, and different architecture. Most of the time it's also a bit nicer weather as in the part above the great rivers.
    I also like Giethoorn (see I guess North, then Overijssel, else South then Overijssel in Netherlands section) cause it's like a Venice idea in the polder.
    A second home city for me is Zwolle, also in Overijssel.

    My favourite nature place in my country must be Moen´s clint.
  • Re: Your favourite place in your country?
    Well...the place i love most in Greece is Monemvasia.
    The poet Yannis Ritsos -who borned there-called Monemvasia "Ship of stone" and he was so right. It looks like a rock on the sea. On this rock is situated the old castletown of Monemvasia! Between stone paths, archs and ruins there are stone houses ,cafes, tavernas and hostels with respect to the physiognomy of the castle-town.
    Every path ,stone and door has its secret beauty there and also has a secret love with history!
    It's place that you can relax and but it's also a place that can born deeper thoughts. The sure is that this place calls you to delectate it as it diserves!
    If you decided to visit Monemvasia do not forget to taste the traditional sweets : "amigdalota" and "samusades".Just great!
