The architecture is just so striking on these buildings.

bohzo (hello)

I love the look of these types of buildings, the older style buildings are so much more appealing.

I hate the look of casino's, I kept suggesting my tribes casino look like a castle from the middle ages for originality and effect. For $400 million it would be some castle.

Have a great day blogging.
