As with the pride of the sky, it has everything, and it looks like a dazzling eye, leading the world, but if you look back at different endpoints, you will be alienated and confused. This is a prosperous place with a thousand-year history. It was also the place where the plague, plague and carpet bombings were carried out during the 15th and 17th centuries and during World War II. As a flower that is jointly fed by destruction and glory, Milan interweaves an extreme collision, gathering history, humanities, ethnicity, religion, art, philosophy, and combining it into a difficult language—沧雅晦, 泠凝哲美, cum The tip of the era, the stagnation of the stagnation.

Have you ever thought about living under the sea? In the northernmost village of Båly on the Norwegian coastline, the world's largest underwater restaurant, Under, appears.
