To ifege: Bin Chickens

Hi Ian

We have Ibis Hotels in Brisbane too. Yes, we also call these birds 'bin chickens'. For a while people were rather unkindly calling Gladys the 'bin chicken'. I prefer Very.jiggly.one!

To emka: Thankyou

Hi Malgo

Top detective work there! Would have taken me many hours. A sad story which I kind of expected from the images. I am glad you could solve the riddle!

To PaulVDV: Earthquake

Hi Paul

There was probably a large earthquake. I'd imagine it used to look like the Roman Pool enclosure at Bath in England. I am glad no earthquakes happened when I was there!

Hi Gert

The yellow plants growing in the heated spa water are algae. It also grows in New Zealand thermal pools and I'd imagine Yellowstone and Iceland as well. 37 lira in 2013 was about $19 Au,...

Hi Gert

Ha ha ha! I have never been a fan of Scott Morrison. The sooner he gets voted out, the better. He was ineffective during the bushfires, useless during Covid, and a dismal fail at...

To mcmtanyel: Ticket man

Hi Murat

Nah, he was the ticket seller and collector. I had to rifle through my bag to find my return ticket, as he had forgotten that I had purchased a ticket from him that morning.

To mkamionka: War

Hi Mariusz

As bad as 9/11 was, it was like comparing a flea to an elephant after what happened in Europe in WWII. Not just 2 buildings destroyed as in NYC, but entire cities almost completely...
