    The Lake of Millefont is a beautiful place to take a walk, see nature, relax and take pictures. It's in the pre-alps, about 70 km from the coast of the Cote d'Azur and the city of Nice. You must leave Nice following the river Var, along the N202 road (west side of the city, near the airport). This road is the direct way to the mountains and you can quickly be in mountainous landscape and still see the Mediterranean Sea :).

    Hutongs are lanes with courtyard houses and form a skeleton of old Beijing. Building of them was started during Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) as comfortable houses for the mandarins and other residents.

    On mission trips, I and 9 other youth built two houses in two weeks. These houses are located in Fuerzas Unidas, Honduras. The most beautiful place on Earth. It is a poor, poor country, and a poor, poor area, but you can see the entire city of Teguz from the top of Fuerzas Undias. A view that Americans would pay 2 million dollars for. The people are the most blessed people I've ever met. They have no money, but they have love, love for each other, and love for the LORD.

    Tampico

    Tampico - it`s the strangest city I've ever visited. I was there on a 4 day business trip, so I didn't really have time to lomograph the city... It was an amazing mixture of decay and modernity: abandoned buildings everywhere, side by side with shiny furbished buildings. I made a mental map of the city, while walking around it. On the last day, I escaped from work at the dinnertime and racing against the time I shot 2 rolls of the city. The map is still in my mind, waiting for the moment until I`m back in Tampico.

    Ski Dubai

    The Emirates are too over the top to be comprehended by a simple mind like me. But one thing I understood perfectly so far: deliver entertainment and sensations no matter of the costs. One perfect example for this is the ski Dubai! As we know, Dubai is in the middle of the desert! Desert equals sun equals heat equals no snow equals question. Answer: the sheikhs just build an amusement dome where there is a ski-world.

    Sagrada Familia

    I haven't had so much experience with South-Europe so far. I was always more attached to the east and far-east. But Barcelona certainly changed my mind about what there is to expect from the south. I mean we don't even have to mention the food! I live with a Spanish girl and she constantly gets the finest oil and ham from her parents. And we don't have to mention the weather, I rather not, I live in Hamburg!

    The strawberry fair was created by middle class hippies as an excuse to bake a few home made cakes, eat the regional strawberries which were just ripening and break out your old tie died clothing. Over the years it has grown to brim over the local common and become a mini alternative festival with a huge beer tent.

    Lamesa Eco Park

    At the heart of the urban jungle of Quezon City lies a real jungle of sorts. Rehabilitated and repackaged for families, the Lamesa Dam is now known as the Lamesa Eco Park. Growing up near the place we used to run around the lush vast plains not minding the dangers the steep cliffs posted. Happy times but in the interest of political correctness everything is safe there now as I visited a few weeks back.
