Cartagena de Indias, beautiful city on the Caribbean coast, well known world-wide for its clear water beaches, the stone walled old city, and that Magical Realism described by Gabriel Garcia Márquez in his Nobel Prize winning book, One Hundred Years of Solitude. If I were to talk about Cartagena to a foreigner I would say all this, because truly this is what Cartagena is all about, but this is not all there is to say. Cartagena, as I know it, is a city of many contrasts that, depending where you stand, can be experienced in many different ways. People from these areas, are diverse and so different in their behavior and customs that if you get the chance to meet them all, you would feel like you visited two or three different cities. The first Cartagena to mention is that one most foreigners know, that one that is ostentatious, pretentious, and expensive, that city that shows the best it has to attract more people than it can receive to benefit those who control it.
Sarasota, Florida is an exceptionally spectacular place. From my first visit, I instinctively knew it was going to become my home someday.

Another awesome feature I love about this city is its big-city feel and layout, complete with steely skyscrapers and myriad downtown restaurants.

The American Dream is known to most as the pursuit of wealth and success through hard work. In the first paragraph of the passage, Fitzgerald describes his own idea of the American Dream. Sitting on the beach Nick thinks of the land “that flowered once for Dutch sailor’s eyes – a fresh, green breast of the new world”(180) The use of the words “fresh” and “green” create the image of a bountiful land, a new frontier to be explored. This new world represents a land of opportunity and possibility for the settlers. Fitzgerald uses this positive description to show the basis of the American dream; where it originated and what it once meant.
It has been argued by Kaes, that the director of Berlin: Die Sinfonie der Grossstadt, successfully manages to ‘construct a text which makes this nexus become readable’. Moreover, the very first shot in Berlin is of open calm water, which Kaes argues is designed to deliver an impression of tranquillity and the natural organic state. Essentially it is a momentary position of calm before the onset of the frenetic urban environment. In other words, Ruttmann’s film is an allegorical impression of an immigrant’s journey of displacement, from the known rural world, into the pulsating unknown world of the metropolis of Berlin.
