    I'm going there on my european trip next summer, I am reading Alan Richman's book and basically he said he loved the city but hated the food... hopefully I don't have that experience.

    I'm sure I can see why may people did not mention Naples, its very dirty. I personaly don't mind that though.

    Just saw something on TV showing postwar Sarejevo, that place is apparently starting to be rebuilt but is still pretty messed up. Unfortunate, when I was in grade school, we had a guest lecturer that showed us a slide show on Sarejevo, saying it was one of the prettiest cities in Europe... it was quite nice... pretty sad.

    seattle-dark ambience

    vancouver, b.c.- same, but with a much better seaside.

    berlin- relaxing, home to some of the greatest musicians and producers in all the world.

    new york- america's answer to itself

    paris- no particular reason, but it feels very much like home.



    hmm...more like a top 5.

    I think that the context makes that clear. Personally, I prefer high tea, with pasties and real, substantial food, to finger snadwiches and biscuits. But then again, maybe I am, in the words of ernest, "country."

    Just so. High tea was definitely for the working class. Those of us who are 'county' rather than 'country' find that afternoon tea does us very well.

    Don't you exagerate the gypsies in Paris?

    I really think you have more in Vienna than in Paris.

    Very exepensive city Food better than in Europe? Nobody speaks English Only Japanese or almost If you are white = you face strong racism Hypocrisy of people (you need something, people think "no" but say "will see" smiling as if it was "yes")
