This is another Bangkok sunset, taken from the place where I was staying, one day after this photo. Not much of a sunset, if you can’t see the sun, you might say. Indeed, even though it might have been the clearest during my stay in Bangkok, it was still very hazy. […]

When you mix old and new architecture the result may be brilliant but sometimes it can be a complete disaster. In the case of the Louvre Pyramid in Paris I think the result is absolutely brilliant, even though it caused a great amount of controversy.

Rome is sometimes called “a capital of two states”, due to the fact that Vatican City is an independent state, completely within the city boundaries of Rome. Vatican is the smallest country in the world by both area and population but it is an independent state nevertheless. I took this photo from the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City but Vatican City doesn’t appear in this picture at all.
