Tehran Central Railway Station by Night

For some reason those green and pink neon lights are VERY typical of Tehran at night. You find them everywhere, shading their pale puti club style lights on parks, shops, sidewalks, you name it

Carpets In Tehran Bazaar

Carpets in Tehran’s Bazaar

Carpets are probably Iran's best known manufactured product (after hypothetical h b*mbs) and you do find them everywhere. You have them in every imaginable size and material, coming from every part of Iran. Qom, Tabriz and Yazd are know to be home of some of the finest carpets in the universe.

Tehran City Theatre and Music Billboard

Tehran City Theatre

This is a picture of the Tehran City Theatre. It is located in one of my favorites spots in Tehran, the crossroad of Vali Asr and Enquelab. Close to many universities the area is very lively, with many art students and hipsters gathering for a drink at the nearby Café Godot,

So I will try to put some pictures of Tehran, where I am currently living. Here is one typical one, those beautiful murals being everywhere in Tehran.

Bowling at the time square in Kuala Lumpur

Bowling at the Time Square Shopping Mall, Kuala Lumpur

The Time Square Shopping mall used to be the most grandiose mall in KL. It featured 10 floors of stores, an IMAX cinema, a bowling alley and.... a full on amusement park, including a roller coaster! (see. pictures). Though as we witnessed in all major Asian capitals, Malls rise and fall, and there can only be one, or at the very most two, that are shinning brightly at any given moment in time. Today those shiny stars are the Pavilion and the Suria in KL, the Element in Hong Kong, and the Paragon in Bangkok.

Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur

Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur

The Petronas Towers used to be the tallest building in the world, from 1998 to 2004. They're probably the most visited attraction in Kuala Lumpur, and in Malaysia. They are fairly impressive, though not particularly beautiful, and a few interesting things to do in the area is walk on the bridge linking the 2 towers at the 42nd floor, go to the aquarium below the towers , and of course go to the Suria KLCC Mall! (super fancy one, though our favorite remains the Pavilion - gorgeous, amazing food court - be sure to try the brioches from Lavander on the first floor)

Ratchadamnoen Stadium

Thai Boxing at the Ratchadamnoen Stadium in Bangkok

The fights were actually a bit disapointing since they mainly featured 12 years old, but the impressive part really was outside the ring, on the arena seats. There hundreds of furious locals were betting money on every fight, screaming, waving money in the air and running around

Hô Chí Minh City (HCMC)

One of the most striking characteristics of Vietnam's capital is traffic. More precisely two-wheeled traffic. There is about 7 million people living in Saigon, and more than half as many scooters (roughly 4 million) - they're everywhere.
