I would probably go to Kaukas because I think these mountains are very beautiful and only some words about biodiversity of Kaukas here and there. These mountains make a border between Europe and Asia. I think it would be good to see Elbrus. I read that it isn't totally immpossible to climb 5600 metres there but conditions - I mean facilities are tragic. And you can be killed by a lighting even during sunny and unstormy day!!!
Besides I would go to Iran. They say Garden Eden was started there. I man Iran-Iraq. Close to Euphrat River etc.
But in the meantime I would choose Ireland probably.
Ireland or France. The best both.
Anahita - but why Ukraine? Would you like to admire Ukrainian steppes? They say they are really breath-taking.
Besides nothing special in Ukraine not counting Eastern Churches.
And history:)
You speak English very well!
Congratulations!!!

And I think in our cultures some young people are very gifted as deals arts. Specially dancing or singing. The same is in Russia.
I wonder how it is in Near(?!?) Asian countries like Iran-Iraq etc. Different culture there.
Well...besides I hope noone feels offended when I told not too many interesting things to see in Ukraine. I should rather say - not too many attractions for tourists there - probably it would sound beter (as far as I know of course).
Besides -personally- I would never trust anyone who belong eastern catholic church. I think these people are mostly false the same way as Polish roman catholics are:( .
But I claim these all because of my daily experiences. Probably someone from Iran would have different opinion. Hahaha:(
People from Ukraine very often come to Poland and trade - they arenot too honest I must say. That's why I say I don't think Ukraine is interesting.
But maybe am I mistaken?
Who knows?
Doth I never was there!

hello Turkey

Postby hereiam » Tue Jan 10, 2006 3:10 pm

Yes - personally I think much more facilities/attractions for tourists in Turkey than in Ukraine. In Ukraine you can visit churches, in Turkey probably also but somehow it seems to me that more things there compared to Ukraine.
But I don't have to be right of course.
As deals me I think I SHOULD see (simply SHOULD) Paris and I would like to get something more about famous Celtic tribes.
One time the Celts dominated throughout Euro-Asian continent and their very few remmants are what we know from far Ireland.
Simply the Celt are forgotten in the Continent cause the age of Greeks and Romans came soon and they gave a true orgin to contemporary civilisation - not the Celts. Ireland is far from the continent and was far from Roman influences so the memory of Celts lasted there stronger till today.
Thanks for reading:)

First I am sorry about my late reply i didnt see this till now ( i am always checking only 2 or 3 of forums daily cause i cant read all the posts)
And its wonderful that you have this information about Elburs honestly i didnt expect many people here know about these mountain in Iran ( which are not very known for the rest of the world ) :D and yes , this mountain has unpredictable natural condition (especially when it comes to weather ) and kind of dangerous if you want to go there alone but its one of the most beautiful places in Tehran and many people including locals and tourists are going to visit it every weekend .. my house is near to this mountain and i can see it through my window every morning which is very beautiful sight , especially in winters when its snowing ...

Anahita - but why Ukraine? Would you like to admire Ukrainian steppes? They say they are really breath-taking.

Well , why Ukraine? I guess its mostly because of the good , positive image that I have about Ukrainian people ( one of my best freinds is from Ukraine and i would love to meet him in Kiev , which i have heard is a lovely city. i should check this out myself ! :lol: ) i don’t like to travel just for seeing the places , natural life or historical buildings , I prefer to visit new people from different ethnic and roots who are living in various daily life . besides I think Ukraine has many beautiful places that may catch every ones attention :wink: I know it may seems an ordinary place for an European but I think I will love it when I go there for visiting my friends ..

It is alsways nice to see your letters (interesting + good English).
Well ...lately I have read some info about gardens (I am trying to write a short books about history of gardens cause this subject interests me a lot of).
It is Iran-Iraq where CIVILISATION was started. What is civilisation? There are cities and people who sit in one place and build something.
Last year I also watched a good movie about Alexander the Great and how he won Persia.
Near East emipires had been existing long before ancient Egipt and some Persian rulers were said to keep gardens based built the same way Biblical Eden Garden was built by a God.
I also learnt that a Babel Tower was raised somewhere not far from Babylon city and according to Bible during constructing of this tower God made a mess inside human languages so finally they weren't able to communicate. However I can find nowhere HOW LONG the Babel Tower was being built. It could tell as something more about probablility of language -mess during its building.
Besides, it seems to me that the story of decorative gardens makes the story of the world and civilisations much more than the dates of all battles and wars together.
Salute for you Anahita!
And for your favourite Ukraine:)

First of all, I agree with u that Taiwan is a good PLACE to visit,but
Taiwan is not a country, it's only a part of China.
In history ,there were two governments in China, but only one stayed in China's mainland. Taiwan is a history problem, but not a country.

Hello Anahita - my wish would be to write long pieces of news like this one:

It is alsways nice to see your letters (interesting + good English).
Well ...lately I have read some info about gardens (I am trying to write a short book about history of gardens cause this subject interests me a lot ).
It is Iran-Iraq where CIVILISATION was started. What is civilisation? There are cities and people who sit in one place and build something.
Last year I also watched a good movie about Alexander the Great and how he won Persia. I am writing about it cause it was time when one big civilisation won another - quite independent one.
Near East emipires had been existing long before ancient Egipt But resuming gardens - some Persian rulers were said to own decorative gardens built the same way Biblical Eden Garden was built by a God.
Today we would rather say they owned first parks more than gardens cause trees were present in Eden garden.
It is also interesting to realize what is a difference between contemporary meaning of words "garden" and "park".
Hanging Gardens of Babylon were one of 7 miracles of whole the Ancient World!
I also learnt that a Babel Tower was raised somewhere not far from Babylon city and according to Bible during construction of this tower God made a mess in human languages so finally peaople weren't able to communicate. However, I can find nowhere HOW LONG the Babel Tower was being built. It could tell us something more about probablility of the language-mess during its building.
Besides, it seems to me that the story of decorative gardens makes the story of the world and civilisations much more than the dates of all battles and wars together.
Salute for you Anahita!
And for your favourite Ukraine:)


without any language errors.
Notice that I improved my text a bit and added there some details.
And concluding I can say that if Bible is right first garden was in fact first park so the word park is rooted in much earlier times than Europe's Middle Ages (as I learnt from English wikipedia)
well... as a young kid I loved reading archeological books.
If it was paid better I could look for some valid things and dig out all my life.
but nothing like this is possible to me at this moment:(
ps. what would you like to see in Ukraine the best Anahita?:)

If I have a chance to vote for the most beautiful place in the world, vietnam is surely my answer.... :D

Postby hereiam » Mon Jan 23, 2006 3:34 pm

Yes - I heard that some nations has lot of problems with your country (specially US). They still make movies about their diseaster!:(
Trying to compare Vietnam to Poland I must say Germans coped much better with the last.
Don't know why.
Probably because Warsaw isnot as far as Moscow?!?
Who knows!
:roll:
ps. but noone managed to win with Russia. Both Napolean and Hitler failed. today we have had 25 Celsjus centigrades below zero and this is merely Silesia - still thousands of kilometres to Moscow!
But what I would like to say is that I have someone in my family - one still living brother of my grandmother that was sent to fight at the battle of Stalingrad.
The hell was there. People were eating people. No food.
I see him a pawn of history.
We all are pawns of history:(.
When your country loses a war or you lose your ideas or go astride the truth you become MOSTLY only a pawn of history no matter you like it or not.
I know such things cause I can see them everywhere around.
:)
Never better:)

2. besides WHO was sent - not THAT was sent
3. and numerous other language mistakes but I hope people are able to understand the whole text.

Besides there was no food at Stalingrad. People didn't have neither warm clothes nor medical treatment while diseases spread.:(
probably it all was deu to fact airplanes were sending only new bombs instead of food and clothes.
Who knows?
never better:)

hmm .. well .. probably Kreschatik street in Kiev will be my first choice :wink: i have heard its a very beautiful street with musician who are performing different kind of music ,painters , lovely souvenir shops and great malls ( lol .. now iam drooling on the keyboard ! :lol: ) and its a very good place for taking a walk and enjoying of your time , then you can go for a boat trip on Denpro .. yeah :wink:
then St. Sophia's Cathedral is not a bad choice ( I love to visit some orthox style church , comparing to our eastern style in Iran , they can gives a very nostalgic , soothing feeling to a beholder , like you are still in home you know .. and then Kiev opera house and Museum of Ukrainian Fine Arts , cause I am crazy art lover .LOL .. and then .. I guess I better stop ! :lol: going to fetch some tea , helps me to wake up from dreaming ! :lol: :P :lol:

Ukrainian steppes

Postby hereiam » Fri Jan 27, 2006 6:37 pm

Hello:)
I think that everyone is different. If being in Ukraina I would go and look for famous Ukrainian steppes.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steppe
I would lie there and do nothing or do some research there picking up plants.
All in all I would keep far from Kijew cause people from Ukrainian privince spit at Kijew very much.
Sad but true like everywhere in Eastern Europe where people are obsessed with need of power. And power is money.
In my country people love US so much but don't want to notice that no big money is earned by ruling people in Western countries. In Poland these people have high salaries.
ps. I always keep very close to nature and wildlife in my life cause I can see a meaning there. A point. A message. A core.
A conclusion.
Some people say - you don't like animals! Oh I do like them but people so often forget that we are not necessary for the planet earth. It is that we need the planet not that the planet needs us.
Some days ago I found on the Net posts with www sides where old (XVI century) anatomical atlases were scanned and presented to the public.
Some people are bit too fat on them (comparing their built to the present standarts) but as deals human body we didn't make any big progress since Renesaince. Really.
Only technological progres + better and better understanding of physical rules has made a big step forward.
But a travel inside human body still looks the same!
It is really amazing!
:)
