To lousat: didn't dislike

Thank you Luciano,
I never meant to say I didn't like your last photo. I just thought it was slightly below your average (which is above most members' average).

To kasianowak: is it really too late?

Thank you Kasia for your comments today.
One of my classmates at the faculty of journalism was 50 when we started. I have no idea what career she had afterwards, but it indicates it's never too late...

To emka: shiraz

Thank you Malgo,

To macjake: balcony

Hi Craig, sorry for late reply.
Thanks for your comments. You are probably right about a restaurant balcony or any such place. I couldn't possibly find a tower in a reasonable direction, and this...

I remember seeing a few times a man going around Varanasi completely naked on a black bicycle. Once I saw him chatting with a shop keeper who didn't seem to think there was anything peculiar. Maybe...

To emka: travel with friends

Thank you Malgo,
I travelled with various friends several times at the beginning of my travelling days, but then I wanted to make journeys that nobody else dared to, or had time for. By then I had...

To PaulVDV: turkish trains

Thank you Paul,
I had originally written a much longer note where I described the rather unpleasant train journey (dirty, uncomfortable, very dirty, extremely slow, filthy). I mentioned that we were...

Thank you Paul, sorry for late reply,
I don't mention those underground cities in my diary, and I have no memory of them, so I probably didn't see them. We did see a wine factory and its underground...

Thank you Malgo,
No, I didn't climb to the top of that hill seen through the frame here, only to the church entrances. But I climbed to the top of the hill from where I took the WS #2 photo, and...

No, we (I travelled with a friend on that journey) didn't go up that hill. The temperature was 32 įC so we saved our energy for the Citadel. (I always thought of it as the Citadel,...

Hello Kasia,
Ha ha, so you did the "Nagorno Karabakh trick" again! (It was N-K, wasn't it?) I must say I found it unlikely that a local in Hšlsingland would ever use an umbrella as protection...
