As for "nothing special", it's what I usually call those photos of undramatic scenes of daily life which I...

To jmdias: i don't think so

Thank you Jorge,
No, I don't think any serious persons in northern Europe regard Italians as parasites, only perhaps rightwing extremist who dislike most foreigners. But a lot of people outside...

To lousat: not bad food

Thank you Malgo,
Yes, I know very well that you would "probably" had climbed to the summit. But you haven't seen how steep the last part was.
Have a nice Sunday. Beware of right wing extremist...

But if you had been a citizen of, say, North Korea, you could be sent to a prison camp even for just asking for a passport. :eek:

Hello Malgo and Luciano,

It seems that the Uzbek visa rules have changed quite recently. The last time I checked, a few months ago, Polish citizens very among the few who could easily enter the...

To PaulVDV: knowledge

Thanks Paul,
You don't need much knowledge of history to see that various internet sites describing things to see in Cefalú mention the Diana Temple on this hill. Whether it's this one is another...

It is not always easy to fully capture in a photo the beauty you experienced with your eyes and mind, and to convince others what a great experience you had. The magic is easily lost in the camera....

To PaulVDV: what to do?

Hello Paul,

To mesutilgim: signal

Thank you Mesut,
It must have been an embarrassing moment for the poor imam, but it would have been even worse if the signals had come from inside the coffin. ;-)

Thank you Jean,
No, I never actually said that the young woman is of little importance. I said (wrote) that she is not "one of the most popular sights in Palermo", which is quite a difference. But...

Thank you Malgo,
The link you included shows the same statue as in my WS, which I had already identified as Sergius in the notes. But the pope in my main photo looks slightly different, and I...

To jhm: blonde

Thank you John,
