European politics, with the exception of the British, are in my opinion boring. For that reason I like a person as Sarkozy; ever witnessed a president who gives a 2 hour press conference for 500 journalist where he or she answered all the questions?
Turkish politics are different. Politicians are always insulted but at the same time they are offensive against everyone who criticize them. And with a press which don't know the difference between facts and fiction and between private and public information, you get a colorful mess.
How different are the USA politics. In this election year everything turns around 'truthiness': doesn't matter if something is true, as long as it looks like that it's true.
But can you prosecute people under this word?..))

Day Opening - January 15

The 250-year old Taj Lake Palace, in Udaipur, India, a marble palace that appears as if it's floating on the waters of Lake Pichola.
Built in 1746 by Maharana Jagat Singh II, 62nd successor to the royal dynasty of Mewar, Taj Lake Palace was originally built as a summer palace. It has recently been transformed to its former glory and is now possibly one of the most romantic hotels in the world.

Guests, of course, arrive by boat.
