    Everybody know how much diversity is there in San Francisco. There are many groups of people, many cultures and ways of thinking. The towns population in formed by many nationalities and Mission St. is where you can mostly get in touch with Mexican culture. You don't really need to talk to the people around to absorb the way they think or live.

    Dali Town

    China is a huge country and with so many differences between the people and the geographics. You have sharp mountains and round mountains, Banantrees and desert and Han-Chinese and Minorities. And there are so many of them. And the perfect spot to feel this diversity is the province Yunnan.

    Congo

    The RD du Congo is that huge green spot in the centre of the African continent. It's a country with a sad past. This summer they had elections for the first time in 30 years. Kabila Jr and Bemba were the two main candidates. Finally Kabila made it. I went to Likasi, a small town (200 000 villagers), above Lubumbashi, the second biggest city of Congo (2 million people).

    Rome

    AH, Roma the eternal city! Always one of the most visited cities in Europe. What's not to like? The gorgeous cobbled streets, the ancient architecture, the history, the Italian culture, the food, wines, gelato! Best thing to do is to throw away your tourist guide, and hop on the metro or buses and discover the city on foot.

    One of my favorite places in Amsterdam is Amsterdam itself. It has so much diversity, you can't imagine. Every day there is a new face to this city, revealing it's true nature to the eye of the beholder...

    Chinatown Brenkwando (New York)

    What better place for the sun to set...I like coming here to be in a different city within the bigger city that already envelops my life. Its a place that smells bad, is grimy, crowded, and unfamiliar. That's what pulls me in.

    Riverside of Cologne

    Koln, or Cologne, is the number 4 city in Germany, so it is natural, that it has something extra for every Lomographer, visiting this beautiful city. Start from getting there - I find "die Bahn" railway service very good, so I did come to Köln by train.

    Pisa

    Oh, who in the world hasn't heard of Pisa and its infamous leaning tower?! I remember my parents had one of those tacky tower lamp souvenirs from their many trips abroad (I'm from the Philippines) and knew the moment I had the chance, I too would make my way to that lovely little city and take in the tower myself. And that I did.

    The desert museum is similar to a zoo, but a bit different. Everything that they have on display is from the desert, and is from the nearby vicinity.

    Genting Highlands

    Genting Highlands is one of the most popular mountain resorts of Southeast Asia. This state of the art entertainment village, built on the Genting hilltop, is a much sought after tourist destination. In addition, Genting has the advantage of the proximity to the capital city, Kuala Lumpur, which helps to make it a popular convention centre. Genting is thus a self compliant destination, which can amuse people of any category, including bachelors, family, women or kids.

    Holker Garden Festival

    Us Brits like nothing more than a grand day out in a posh person's backyard. One such event is the Holker Garden Festival held in the parkland at Holker Hall, near Flookburgh in south Cumbria, just a stone's throw from Morecambe Bay.

    Gracia (Barcelona)

    The area of Gracia in Barcelona is really the one I prefer. Located north of the central "Plaça Catalunya" it's in the same time really central, and different from the rest of the city.

    Pope’s Palace

    In the 15th century, with the arrival of the popes, Avignon became the capital of Christianity, supplanting Rome for nearly a hundred years. To the South of the Cathedral, the Popes built an enormous fortress considered at the time as one of the most beautiful and strongest fortresses in the world.

    Redang Island

    Redang is my favorite island to chill in Malaysia. I have been here 3 times already during past 3 years. You could go here through Kuala Berang. Normally I drove there and changed for old fisherman's style boat to Redang.

    Ultra Sports Complex

    The Ultra Sports Complex houses a floodgate of memories, from basketball victories in the stadium, marathons ran in the oval to the unfortunate stampede tragedy a couple years back. It is the latter that strikes the hardest nerve, which promptly stopped any renovation plans for the complex, thereby turning it to a shadow of its former self.

    For the most part destroyed in World War II, Dresden is a phoenix that has truly arisen from the flames. Situated on the banks of the Elbe river, this city in eastern Germany is being returned to it's former glory through rebuilding and reconstruction.

    Melnrage 2. beach

    If you like to walking on the beach and you are male, then all the beaches in Klaipeda are kind of small for you, but not because of the width, but because of the length. There is a silly system which I will try to explain you: every 200 meters on the beach there are beaches which are only for women.

    Camp in Mountains (New Caledonia)

    TVR is a camp in the mountains of NC. Everything is so clear up there, your thoughts, your beliefs, the water, the air, the people. Everyone and everything knows why they're there. Its lovely. The sun is always positioned in a way where you can always see it. Light shines on everything.

    Lago di Fiastra

    I recently took my vacation in the Marche, which is a neat area in the middle of Italy. Very calm and decently close to the Adriatic Sea and the port of Ancona. It has all the treats of the Italian landscape, having mountains and seaside alike.

    Pompeii

    The city of Pompeii is certainly a sight to behold. My sole reason of staying in the Campania region was to visit this infamous site. Having been buried in meters and meters of volcanic ash and pumice way back in 24 August 79, the city was recently discovered sometime in the 1700's and since then massive excavation work has ensued to bring forth this lost civilization still preserved and fresh as the day it was built.

    Baku

    Among the new Islamic countries of the post-Soviet Union, I tend to like Azerbaijan a lot. You get your kebab warm, photo-venders throw LC-A after you and I even saw transvestites after nightfall on the street. That's what I call liberal, baby! I was in Baku for a seminar, so food and drinks were granted for free. Yeah! There is an interesting habit for waiters, though.

    Rave Festival (San Francisco)

    This is not such a nice festival for a kid to go but for me, I won't miss it if I have a chance to attend one of them. Dj, trance music, rave, light show, argon laser beam, visual - all of these elements is what I love about raves. SF is one of the cities that has a best rave event to attend.

    Millefont Lake

    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 :).
