Hi Kasia and Gert,

Honestly, I only noticed those toenails when I made my photo ready to show here ... and not during my visit of the village.

To holmertz: The toenails

Thank you Gert,

I also noticed the toenails.
Perhaps it should not surprise us that women all over the world have certain common beauty desires.

Best regards,
Paul

To holmertz: Boats and tourists

Thank you Gert,

There was a crowd of tourists in Pokhara and the city and its surroundings felt very commercial.

To jhm: Drukte

Bedankt John,

Die drukte vind je enkel aan de oever waar de stad gelegen is.
De andere boorden van het meer en het midden zijn zeer kalm.

Thank you Gy,

Indeed, there is a similarity between the Machapuchare and the Matterhorn.

To emka: A bit more precise about the run-up

Thank you Malgo,

Yes, paragliders start on a hill on the left side on the picture.

Thank you Sergio,

There are many possibilities for paragliding in Colombia, among others in San Gil.

Thank you Malgo,

I suppose when you take the plane, you have confidence in the pilot.
