Amazing information here on the building of the city Gary. Although it must be amazing to see and feel the wonderful archtecture of this palace that 'is made primarily of rare woods', the fire incidents and concerns are noteworthy :~( The various beautiful materials, such as marble sound wonderful. Um 'all hair from below her chin was removed' reminds me, must get the tweezers out! :~D Love those photos Gary. E from me, me loverlee :~) xXx by Deesrev
