For the third time we visit the Mexican capital, one of the world largest cities. We will be around the historical core of the city around Zocalo square (Plaza de la Constitución).
A town, a NPU administered chateau, and a park. This all will give you the feeling of heaven on earth. Just as the baroque architects intended it to be. The architecture exploits nature there to one hundred percent. It completes it with monumental set pieces, works of art, and thought-out placement of wood plants. The plan helps you to reach meditational mood.
After a magical walk near luxurious boutiques on Royale street, or admiring historical buildings on La Madeleine and Garnier Opera. Last part in our series, we visited the Lafayette gallery. We wandered about in pompous spaces for people who like to shop. We saw Paris from above and walked to see another landmark in the city.

On the opposite side, there is a tourist trail (red) that runs across hanging bridges on the side of the rock.
Sun greets us in the morning. Very unusual here… perhaps you have already forgotten how many sunny days there are on these island. I remember it so I appreciate the nice weather more.
I know the old proverb starts bit differently, yet I hold to the opinion that this tweak has some truth to it. At some places I think about this proverb more often. At some places even every day. Perhaps you already realized that by the latter I mean China.
Last time we talked a little about the most important square in Mexico. Perhaps you noticed there is a gigantic flag of Mexico. You will easily recognize the square thanks to it.

The city founded by the Premyslid dynasty. The city is on the Otava river in the region of South Bohemia. Pisek is known for its oldest Stone bridge in the Czech Republic. It is a cultural landmark.

Let's take a look together into places that have been silent witnesses of the most important decisions of the Hussite armies.
I had my balloon flight above Cappadocia at last. In my perspective, it is there where to do such thing is the best. We were at the place at 5.15 in the morning. There were more than 50 balloons being prepared for flights!
The night was absolutely calm. Living in couchettes is not the most pleasant thing, but one can manage. We were very lucky because of the weather, the sea was absolutely calm and we could have our calm sleep…
Days in Beijing passed by merrily. School in the morning, studying, chats with friends… Everyday routine was diversified with weekend trips. Summer Beijing was not very magical, to be honest.
