One of the best approaches to a new culture is their markets. In Mandalay we visited two. Just in case. http://bit.ly/marketsmandalay

Il miglior modo per avvicinarsi ad una nuova cultura è passare dai loro mercati. Per non sbagliarci, a Mandalay ne abbiamo visitati due diametralmente opposti. http://bit.ly/mercatimandalay

Arriving in #Mandalay  can be a bit of a cultural shock, something resembling a trip back in time... http://bit.ly/1F9QDkD

It started off as a productive day but...

I played #breakout on Google Image Search! I made it to level 1 in Image Breakout! Can you beat my score of 355?

When seen in the context of such breath-taking beauty, a spot of everyday ugliness can be harder to accept. 
The time we took a day long boat trip from Mandalay to Bagan > http://bit.ly/boattobagan

Visto nel contesto di una tale surreale bellezza, un a manifestazione di trivialità è più difficile da accettare.

A great place to stay in Puglia, in a charming town few minutes away from sea, forest and motorway. Giuseppe is a fantastic host, helpful and accommodating. The B&B is directly connected with the Pizzicato bar, home of delicious breakfasts, homemade pastries and superb cocktails

The rooms are comfortable and clean, breakfast is decent, but the male staff is rude to an incredibly annoying level. They make it quite clear that you are nothing but a money cow to them, therefore you must be ruthlessly milked. They organised two bus trips for us that were a complete failure, and they struggled to understand any request formulated in simple English but went ballistic when they found out we bought our bus out of Bagan from another agency, showing a surprising command of the language. Steer clear of these people. Also wifi signal is almost non existent, never managed to connect once.

Reliable and professional, Ivan did the job quickly and to high standards. He moved many boxes full of fragile stuff and several pieces of antique furnitures without a scratch or a dent. I will definitely call him again!

I understand that every experience differs from others, and some nights can be the wrong night in some restaurants. But I really don't understand why so many positive reviews for this place. The food is mediocre and overrated. The staff is rude and so unprofessionally organised that made me want to get up and do the job for them. Plus there are ridiculous queues. I guess people's judgement might be biased by the hype surrounding a place sometimes.

Great place for a quick meal, tasty piadina (soft white tortilla bread) filled with sliced cured meats, vegetables and sauces. Take your time with the menu but avoid lunch time as it might be quite busy.

If I had to choose a Lisbon food to die with that would be "Arroz the Marisco" (seafood risotto) at Marisqueria Uma. Il risotto ai frutti di mare, arroz de marisco, alla Marisqueria Uma è indescrivibile, va provata. Non potete lasciare Lisbona senza una cena qui.

It's a shame to see the work of this great artist in such a place. 15 is a rip off for what is offered, the museum is clearly more concerned of squeezing tourists dry with audioguides, souvenirs, food and drinks. The rooms are not clearly in temporary order and a path is not clearly indicated. The ground floor room is tucked between a flight of stairs and the lounge. Last friday there was even a music event which made a peaceful fruition of Van Gogh paintings nearly impossible. And the music was rubbish!
