Yes Darius jan, I've always want be a Globe trotter.

I loved trip around the world in 80 days when I was child and this old TV show I used to watch in Iran. As you are an expert of movie and TV, you should know it well //

Hopefully, after years, I managed to find a job letting me to travel.

Take care.

It somehow becomes magical, when you realize there is a real person behind the avatar; and in this case, a good person indeed.

I still don't know how to post multiple photos on the site, though.

It is true that LA's traffic is bad, but I have visited over 80 museums, gardens, arboretum, historical societies, Catholic missions, art galleries, & historical homes. The weather is great here....NY, SF and Phily are freezing cold in the winter! :O)

Phily worth to be known more

by Orang Gholikhani on

I'd this opportunity to visit Phily because of a business trip. I apreciated a lot. This is very beautiful city. As beautiful as Manhatan, less crowdy, more cozy.

If I should establish a ranking among US cities I've visited, I would say NY,SF and Phily at the third place, Seattle , Chicago and  Boston at Forth place.

I don't want offence LA people but it would be at the last position for me. Too much Highway !;-) San Diego is better placed.

Take care.

by Jahanshah Javid on

Very nice photos Orang Jan. Philadelphia is one of those great historic and cultural cities that rarely gets mentioned. I've never been there, but have heard here and there about how special it is. Thank you for sharing its best in art.

The Magic Gardens are very cool. It reminds me of LA's Watts Tower a little bit. Thank you for sharing!
