I remember walking through the city streets with a former boss once. Along the way, we passed many homeless people seeking cash, job leads and encouragement. He wondered out loud which of them should receive anything. I wondered silently how he could judge since, although I knew he'd had a troubled childhood, he'd never lived a day on the street. by kerri_posts

Venice was on our bucket list from the moment we started planning our trip through Europe. It's a beautiful romantic city with lots of history. We thought that Venice would be expensive, knowing that exploring the city by gondola costs € 80 for just half an hour. But we enjoyed this wonderful place for free including a boat tour through the whole city! Hitchhiking a gondola in Venice is possible ...and magical! by casandra

Project – City Lights Lampshade. To make a city skyline view first you have to print or draw a city skyline silhouette on a piece of paper. Then fix it on the lampshade with tape. Using common pins make holes in the lampshade along the lines of the silhouette. You can make some holes bigger for a star shine effect. When done with poking remove the paper and voila. You can try as many patterns as you like. by WeAreAllMadHere

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: “Rio is possibly the most beautifully sited city on the globe,” says Schultz. “Head up to the statue of Christ the Redeemer at Corcovado for a take-your-breath-away view of la Cidade Maravilhosa (the Marvelous City). It is a unique city in many ways—where nature collides with a thrumming metropolis, the elegant with the seedy, and the rich with the poor.” The spot's proximity to the water makes for arresting views. by geraldine

Paul Klee, Black Columns in a Landscape, 1919 In the spring of 1919, Klee rented a large studio in the Schloss Suresnes, a neglected eighteenth-century palace in Schwabing, Munich's artists' quarter. According to Klee's son Felix, Suresnes, its park, and the nearby Englischer Garten served as inspiration for this watercolor. It depicts Ionic columns, a large chestnut leaf, a thin black cross, a small red pavilion, and a boat on the River Isar, which flows through Munich. by coleen
