Is that the reason you moved to Iceland?

Ya, thats one of the ones i want to really go to. Ive read there was an Armenian artisan class there as well, so on top of all the cool Iranian buildings there are some old Armenian buildings too. From Iran i also want to visit Tabriz, Shiraz and Tehran. I might add more if i see more pictures of other cities, but these ones i have to visit for sure if i am able to go. Should make for a really cool trip, if i can ever convince one of my friends to go, lol.

Es Fa Han, like Spanish!

Quote Ya, thats one of the ones i want to really go to.

But I don't recommend that you go there in this situation of Iran!

After Tehran, Isfahan has the second largest Armenian population in Iran, it is inetersting to know that three Players of Iran's junior basketball team (Davit Momjian, Oshin Sahakian and Arn Davoodi), who won Iran's first ever Asian basketball cup some days ago, are Isfahani Armenians. as you said, there are some old Armenian buildings in this city including 13 churches which have been registered as Iran's national monuments.

Those were also record breakers, the coldest since they began keeping track.  And we do get the Gulf Stream effect in New York.  'sides, better than the Lake Effect in Chicago.

Bangkok

It's roads run 30 metres above the ground, it's trains 60. Sometimes you can't see the sky. TV screens blare out from the bus stops and digital screen billboards blast commercials from the side of skyscrapers. Smog blurs the horizon, noodle sellers litter the streets, and crowds of crowds flow down down the street while the traffic sits in gridlock. One minute you're standing in the most (post)modern city in the world, around the corner you're in the 19th century.

Ever thought you wandered onto the streets of Blade Runner?

Moscow, Sydney, Singapore - I still have a lot of places to visit - I'd Imagine once i go there, Tokyom Hong Kong and New York would be added to my list.

I'm expecting great thigns from other countries and cities for once i get to them, but from what i know about many different countries and cities - it doesn't seem to me they can out do - the cities listed above.. I understand and know that many different Cities have great history, arcitecturem people and other misc. things. How ever, the cities I mentioned - top the list for me.

I'm Shifty Russian, Suka
