#102 La Cuidad de las Artes y las Ciencias
The other day we went to Valencia and passed by the City of Arts and Sciences. Here you can see the new Opera House (looks a bit like a martian fish) and the Hemisphere (which looks like . . . a hemisphere!)
Not shown is the Oceanographic Park and the Prince Phillip Museum or even the car park which has a futuristic garden on the roof. The whole 'city' is built in what was once a river running through Valencia. The river is no longer there but they still have lots of water around the place.
This man decided it was much too far to walk all the way round the lake to get to the Prince Phillip Museum - so he waded straight across!
