. . . but you wouldn’t want to live there.

Congratulations go to the only reader who identified the photo correctly: STEW SHEPPARD of Vancouver, B.C.

The winner of the drawing was GORDON KILGORE of Sharpsburg, GA.

Thanks go to Helen Frye of Port Clinton, OH, for sending the picture,which she took in March ’03. She must have almost bumped into some ITN readers, several of whom told us they recently saw the cathedral in person.

The Parliament Palace in Bucharest, Romania


The Parliament Palace in Bucharest, Romania

Quite a few of the 136 readers who correctly identified March’s picture didn’t particularly admire the building, the Parliament Palace in Bucharest, Romania. It was built by dictator Nicolai Ceausescu as the “Casa Poporului” and “Victory of Socialism Center” in the 1980s and was unfinished at the time of his death.

“So ugly, and such a tragedy for Romania,” said Mrs. Don Adamson of Altadena, CA. Jean Rudolph of Moscow, ID, labeled it a “monstrosity.”

“Ugly,” opined Robert Brockman of San Antonio, TX, while Katya Davis of Eugene, OR, had a brighter outlook: “It looks better at night when it is lit up.”

Our thanks to all the people who entered. The winner of the drawing was WARREN WILKES of Mesa, AZ.

We also thank Jackie and Phillip Korbholz of Stockton, CA, for submitting the drawing.

The winner of the drawing was BILL LANE of Golden, Colorado. Thanks go to Margo Wilson of Scottsdale, Arizona, for submitting the photo.
