My husband and I enjoyed viewing this compilation of the many different architectural wonders. We were amazed by the buildings but more in awe of the minds behind these creations. We noticed, however, much to our disappointment, that the National Assembly of Dhaka, Bangladesh is not included. How can it be that this one true marvel not 'make the cut'?
