Fun Facts to Know and Share

That Rome wasn't built in a day is common knowledge. What you may not know is that these other cities, any of them equally large, ancient or exotic, were also not built in a day either:

  1. Brisbane
  2. Honolulu
  3. Barcelona
  4. Constantinople
  5. Louisville
  6. Buffalo
  7. Beijing
  8. St Petersburg (Russia or Florida) 
  9. Pittsburgh
  10. San Juan
It is, I think, emblematic of our humanity that - in the 20th Century alone and natural disaster aside, several cities were destroyed in less than a day.
