and revitalization of the city center From Aztec times, the Centro Histórico (Centro (Mexico City)) used to be where the wealthy and elite lived. However, in the early 20th century, these classes began to move to areas west and southwest of the Centro, to neighbourhoods such as Colonia Juárez (Colonia Juárez (Mexico City)), Colonia Cuauhtémoc (Colonia Cuauhtémoc, Mexico City), Colonia Roma and Colonia Condesa (Condesa). The Centro remained the commercial, political

1,800,000, composed predominantly of mestizos and whites; making it the second most populous city in Central America after Guatemala City. Managua is the undisputed commercial, political, cultural and religious center of the country and many new trends originate from here before they affect the rest of the country. The Managua focus of nearly all media (print and TV) is so staggeringly large, that an address without mention of the city is almost always meant to mean Managua by default in news or advertising. Managua's location between the rival cities of León and Granada made it a logical and ideal compromise site in determining the nation's capital. While this decision seemed genius at the time, geology today indicates otherwise, as there is an active fault line right where downtown Managua used to be. Managua's economy is based mainly on trade. The city is Nicaragua's chief trading center for coffee, cotton, and other crops. It is also an important industrial center. Its chief products for trade include beer, coffee, matches, textiles, and shoes. The city has been witness to the rise and fall of political powers throughout Nicaragua's history and suffered devastating earthquakes in 1931 and 1972. Managua is the economic, political, cultural, commercial and industrial center of Nicaragua. Since the 1972 earthquake, residential and business areas have been built on the outskirts of Managua. Managua has been dubbed the ''Venice of Central America'' because of its escalating use of makeshift canals that can be found throughout the city. Although it doesn't have the sheer colonial beauty of León and Granada and travellers and expats alike love to complain about the dusty hot streets in the dry season and the mud and torrential canals in the rainy season, Managua does have some things to offer for the tourist. So it might be worth to spend some time here and not immediately head out on the first bus or plane you can get. Residents of the city and of the department of Managua are called ''Managüenses.'' Budget Nicaragua is one of Latin America's economically friendly destinations. Its hotel, food and transportation costs are a fraction of its neighbors. Eating at local restaurants is extremely inexpensive, and for $30, a meal for four can be served at these locations. Fast food locations are relatively similar to those in North America and Europe in terms of price. High-end restaurants are also affordable. Foreign cuisine, like French and Italian specialties, are served at high-end locations for a fraction of the price found in North American and European cities. Transportation is equally affordable with bus trips for less than US$1.00 and taxi services. Hotels, as anywhere, vary from cheap hostels to full service five stars that can run into the thousands of cordobas. Get in By plane *'''Augusto C.

, while Nicholas was visiting Japan during his eastern journey (Eastern journey of Nicholas II). Background Before opening ceremonies in Vladivostok marking the start of construction of the Trans-Siberian Railroad, Tsarevich Nicholas made an official visit to Japan. The Russian Pacific Fleet with the Tsarevich first called on Kagoshima (Kagoshima, Kagoshima), then Nagasaki (Nagasaki, Nagasaki), and then Kobe. From Kobe, the Tsarevich journeyed overland to Kyoto, where he was met by a delegation headed by Prince Arisugawa Taruhito. As this was the first visit by such an important foreign prince to Japan since those of Prince Heinrich of Prussia in 1880 and two British princes in HMS ''Bacchante'' (HMS Bacchante (1876)) in 1881, and as the military influence of the Russian Empire was growing rapidly in the far east, the Japanese government placed heavy emphasis on using this visit to foster better Russo-Japanese relations (Empire of Japan – Russian Empire relations). Nicholas showed interest in the Japanese traditional crafts, got a a dragon tattoo on his right arm, Keene, ''Emperor of Japan, Meiji and His World'', pp.446. Nikolai had read Pierre Loti's ''Madame Butterfly'' before arriving in Nagasaki, and in imitation of Loti had a dragon tattooed on his right arm on May 4 in a painful operation that took 7 hours, from 9 PM to 4 AM. and bought an ornamental hairpin (Kanzashi) for a Japanese girl who happened to be near him. right 225px thumb To contribute to the emergence of a society in which development will supplant stagnation, in which growth will take the place of decay, and in which culture will put an end to barbarism is the noblest, and, indeed, the only true function of intellectual endeavor.
