if the giant ram is the one at the vienna world at either mittagong or goulburn, then i've seen it (who can remember town names at 3am pittstops?). vienna world being the truck stop where all the greyhounds and fireflies stop when you're taking the cheap route from sydney to melbourne by road.

on further thought, if this is the big merino, then this is what i'm referring to, and i saw it on some nighttime trip down to melbourne for one of those sojourns we've all done and then wonder why we bothered.

the big merino

I've been to Moscow a few times and yeah, it's one of my favourite sites there. Along with the Red Square and Kremlin.

After my trip to India, I think that Taj Mahal takes the top spot from now on

I've had the urge to mount this moose, but I've always resisted. I think it's just a matter of time.

Seriously, people love big things...the biggest burger, the biggest tower. People can be really strange.

As far as the most 'beautiful' monuments go, churches and cathedrals, as mentioned, can be pretty spectacular. I always marvel at the attention to detail in so many of them. I did an architecture course in England a few years back where we were taken on tour to many of the standouts. At times, it felt so special to be in them, with all the stained glass, hidden rooms, and spiral staircases...like living monuments to history.

I think La Louvre in Paris is beautiful. I like the contrast between the glass pyramide and the rest.


This was also in Paris but I can't remember the name of this building:
Very beautiful.

Too bad I haven't been in Rome yet, though I've been in Italy pretty much by now, but never been to the capital, just outside of it on my way to the airport.

But I loved Firenze as a whole.
