Slideshow from the Tretyakov museum in Moscow

Hi all

When I went to Moscow I went to the National Museum of fine arts, also known as the Tretyakov museum.

I have earlier posted a small story about it (https://explorerray.com/2012/07/11/day-at-the-museum-tretyakov/),

but now I am posting a slide show with many of the images that I took when I was there.  Hope you enjoy them.

A glance at Toronto and the CN tower

After most of an entire day was spent transporting myself from Honolulu by San Francisco to Toronto I arrived early this morning. The problem with early arriving flights is that hotels are very seldom ready for you, and today was no exceptions. So even if I was really tired from a long day of travelling I venturered out and saw some of the downtown metropolitan,and I took a trip to the famous CN tower. Here are some pictures and comments.

Downtown Toronto is quite beautiful early a sunday morning

The CN tower, it is not strange that the Canadians are proud of it……

The view from the observation deck is quite impressive. It is such a clear day

From the pod dec that is almost 500 meters up in the air they say that you can se as far as New York state, or the Niagra Falls. I dont know where that will be on the horizon, but I do not doubt it for one second.

Here are a short video where I walk around the sky pod of the CN tower, and you get a little impression of the hight of the place..

Shanghai

Shanghai have a special meaning for me. In the summer of 2004 i studied here as a part of the Norwegian school of entrepreneurship. I was a truely great experience and it opened my eyes to the world. Two years ago I had the oportunity of going back when the World expo was held there, and it was nice to see the city all over again. A lot of thing had changed in the seven years. But also many things where just the same.

The slide shows takes us from The Shanghai world financial centre, the French Concession and pictures from the world expo.

Enjoy 🙂
