I hate to break it to you, but art-wise, it's hard to improve on London. I'm not even sure New York has anything on it, and I like New York a lot. If you didn't like London, the rest of your art life will be one of pining and boredom. No more good decades for you, Miss!


Haha, oh no, Thomas! Not even New York? I was thinking of moving there for a bit, Berlin too...

Don't listen to Doubting Thomas PQ. Razz New York's art scene is still thriving beyond any other grand city's imagination. Surprised

@tsarstepan,
She should go to the Guggenheim Museum. There was a movie where there was a lot of shooting and practically wrecked the exhibits. I think it starred Jason Statham movie.

Mistake it was the 'International' with Clive Owen (and Naomi Watts) the could have been James Bond.

Both perfectly wonderful cities. Also, ehBeth made a very good sales pitch for Toronto to me once. I haven't had the opportunities to hear any concerts there, but I definitely like the vibe of the city.

View of Kangchenjunga (third highest mountain in the world and I believe the most beautiful as it is almost symmetrical) from our school.

@The Pentacle Queen,
Id have to say peaces of all the decades were great, they have all had there ups and downs, I remember great times as a teenager, with family and freinds, and great times with my own family (kids and wife) in my 20's, 30's, 40's wasnt so great but not horrible and now my 50's looking pretty good.

The school main building overlooking the big field. There is a field to the left of the main gray building where we used to stand in the sunshine as it is cold in the morning as the Catholics went to mass on Sundays. We had to pick up the garbage such candy wrappers if the Principal came around and saw them. His name was Brother Fitspatrick, very strict guy but fair. Till now I didn't know it was Jesuit school. From Google I found out it was a Jesuit school.

There is garden in front and we used to see the chameleons with there funny eyes pointing at different directions and fearsome looking. There were beehives there as well as lady bugs. We squished a few and a yellow fluid came out but after that we didn't do it again.

@talk72000,
I have to say that is the most colorful jesuit school I've ever seen, but I haven't seen other than colleges/universities.


Didin't mean to skip Ryoung - more data that life can still be good..

@ossobuco,
The drawings on the gray wall are not permanent just chalk drawings to celebrate the Centenary. We once saw a flying fox caught on the wires. It was dead.

@The Pentacle Queen,
Here are some more.

There are two fields on either side of the main building. To the right of the main building were for small boys. To the left were for bigger boys.

This the the view facing the main building from the small boys fields. We had a lot fights in there. My best friend was an English boy. He had a funny way of dribbling. He would run with the ball and then he would place his foot on top of the football and propel it backwards so everyone following him would be yards ahead of him as he turns around to the football behind. He also said if he had a beautiful sister he would disguise himself and marry her. We were just kids so we were talking rubbish. Mr. Green Rolling Eyes Twisted Evil

The classrooms building. There was no fence when I was a student.

They spruced up the school. Everything was dull during my time or maybe it's just my memories.

The new classroom is a lot bigger.

Hallway to the dining room.

The dormitory. Wow it brings back memories.
http://www.chhimipenjo.com/Goethals2/images/00730009.jpg

The new dorms which I never saw.
http://www.chhimipenjo.com/Goethals2/images/00730011.jpg

The games room. I don't remember too much about it.
http://www.chhimipenjo.com/Goethals2/images/00730013.jpg

One small Chinese student died from eating poisonous berries and another Indian student, also very small, boarded the toy train back and was found by the police hundreds of miles from school at the end of the toy train line. The trip required a boat ride and another train (regular) train ride to Calcutta.

@The Pentacle Queen,
You should visit Wall Street in New York to look at the world's biggest crooks at work and walking free.

20's were probably the best for me too! It's when I volunteered into the US Air Force for a four year term, and my motivation to do well woke up. It was a time when my confidence in myself grew, because the air force appointed me to work with nuclear weapons, and that in of itself proved I was not a lost soul. Most of the officers treated me well, and one in New Mexico even invited me to their home for dinners, because he was married to a Japanese woman, and he knew I missed my rice.

It was also the time when I was able to travel to Europe while stationed in Morocco, and that was when the travel-bug bit me. Been traveling ever since.

One of my oldest and dearest friend is a guy I met in Morocco, and we were able to meet in Austin a couple of years ago when I visited my son.

Yea, the 20's were my favorite too.
