Mt Nemrud



Mt Nemrud in Turkey is a place I would like to go. At the top of the 2150m (7056 Ft) extinct volcano lies the tomb of King Antiochus, who was king of Samosata way back in 69 - 38 BC. The tomb is surrounded by these huge statue heads. The statue of Zeus is the largest one in the world. Cool.

San Nakji for President!

there are so many places in the world. I dont think one lifetime is enough to see one country completely.
