Berlin, as we all know, had a trembled history. After WWII it was totally destroyed and its surprisingly reconstruction seemed to be impossible to many people. Many people considered Berlin a condemned city, as they didn’t know the fantastic capacity and discipline of the Germans. Please don’t ask the people on the street about Hitler and the concentration camps, they are not responsible for them. The people are very kind and gentle, and you don’t need to make them guilty or uncomfortable.

Sushi has exploded in popularity since it’s introduction to the mainstream in the early 1980’s. Now, it’s impossible to travel a few blocks without seeing at least one sushi restaurant. However, not all sushi restaurants are created equal. While some cater to the masses, others fill various niches – fusion, traditional, various styles, etc. One particular style, omakase (chef’s choice in Japanese), has been pleasing hardcore sushi enthusiasts for decades. For those searching for the best omakase meal money can buy, it is without a doubt that one man, Hiro Urasawa, delivers up the best sushi in the United States.

I think that Prague is a favorite destination for the New Year 2009. Its old downtown is between the world’s nicest and since 20 years an UNESCO heritage site.

A trip to Prague on New Year 2009 will be the right occasion to discover or rediscover the charm of former centuries and the rich art collectionsof czech Museums.

Prague is not a big city (1 200 000 people), is not overcrowded and very easy to discover walking in the downtown. There are plenty of pubs there where you can taste the delicious Bohemia beer and the tasty cuisine. But these traditional pubs are usually overcrowded, even Bill Gates did not find a free table.

Guards changing in the Hradcany Palace has a special ritual and is a show for any tourist.
