phinz, thanks for bringing to light such an amazing person. Do you think we can create as much buzz with Thich Nhat Hahn that Pamela Anderson has garnered on this forum?

And here is a link on Amazon.com that has the cover art my sister painted

http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0938...24#reader-link

and Thanks Barbara for your comment, we as a family think it is a big deal!

Okay, here is a picture of a building, I am really into architecture. What is this building, where is it and what is its claim to fame?

Shows you why I suck at this game. I thought it was a pic of Nureyev in his latter years.

Is it Smetana Hall in Prague, Czech Republic? "Named for the popular composer and fervent Czech nationalist Bedrich Smetana (1824-84), Smetana Hall is located in one of the world's most distinctive Art Nouveau buildings. Since its 1997 reopening after the building's painstaking reconstruction, the ornate and purely exhilarating Smetana Hall has hosted a series of top-notch events. Such events include a speech by former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on her return to her birthplace to invite the Czechs into NATO; and an eclectic evening during a 1997 forum with Gregory Peck, James Earl Jones, and Lynn Redgrave reciting excerpts from Václav Havel plays."

Yes! errrr, close enough! The entire building is known as the Municipal Building/House and its claim to fame is its Art Nouveau styling, a quite remarkable building. The picture I posted was of the side of the building. I will add a few more pictures of it.
You're up Barbara, Good Job!

I was looking for a particular place, and I found it but couldn't find any good pictures of it. So I found another place in the same city. What and where is this?
