To emka: Special attire to enter

Thank you Malgo,

All Hindu men who visited the temple had to wear special clothes that they could borrow (rent) on the spot.
Some of them were indeed half naked. I don't think these men were the...

To Royaldevon: the flowers

Thank you Beverley,

I didn't ask the price of the flowers.
It is better not to show any interest in India if you do not wish to buy.
When you look at who's buying the flowers, I would not think...

To BennyV: het hondje

Bedankt Benny,

Toch zou ik datzelfde hondje liever niet in het donker tegen komen. Ook niet op een verlaten plaats.
Overdag in de volle straten in India lijken ze heel lief. Ben je echter alleen...

To holmertz: To be consequent .... pfffft

Thank you Gert,

The answer to your question is two-part.
First, being consistent is not a property of mine.
Secondly, I could not pronounce Thiruvananthapuram and hardly write it ... (Here I had...

To ChrisJ: no mosquitoes

Thank you Chris,

No, in that time of the year (December/January) there were no mosquitoes.
How about mosquitoes in Palawan ?

Best regards,

To quovadis: the fishing boats

Thank you Tomek,

With a 'closer perspective' do you mean closer than on the pictures in the WS ?
I'll have a look if I have such a picture.

Best regards,

Thank you Craig,

Yes, that's right. I am not a photographer and I usually don't walk around with a camera. But when I travel I have my camera almost always with me.
And of course I go on a...

Thank you Gert,

That may indeed be the reason why I thought I saw few Muslims and many mosques ... but shouldn't I have seen more houses near those mosques after all?

To holmertz: Religons in Kerala

Thank you Gert,

I think your percentage is correct about the number of Muslims in Kerala.
Yet there was something I found strange.
I often saw very large (and probably new) mosques in a...

To mkamionka: Bruges for your daughter

Thank you Mariusz,

Yes, Bruges is a very safe place.
Maybe your daughter would enjoy a ride with a horse-drawn carriage (not exactly cheap) or a boat trip on the canals.
Maybe she would like the...

To macjake: what I thought of it

Thank you Craig,

This was my fourth trip to India. The first two date back to the 1990s.

I understand what attracts you to India and that’s (partly) what I’ve seen on my first journeys. Even on...

To alvaraalto: Wat zit er onder de plastic ?

Bedankt Rob,

Wat die loods betreft: dat kan ik me niet herinneren.
Wel de felgekleurde plastic: Daaronder zitten de visnetten en ook soms een boot.
Na de visvangst en nadat de netten uit de...

Thank you Mariusz,

Stray dogs are about everywhere in India.
On busy places like this beach they aren't a problem. But when you see the same dog at night or on a remote spot the same animal...

To holmertz: in comparison with ...

Thank you Gert,

Perhaps I have awakened wrong expectations.
In my mind I compared with Spanish beaches ... (and with Kovalam)

Enjoy your weekend,

Hi Gert,

Varkala is a train ride of one hour from Trivandrum.
To Kovalam you can go by auto rickshaw from the centre of Trivandrum. So it's much closer by Kerala's capital.
I think both places...

I've also been in Kovalam.
According to my personal opinion Varkala and Kovalam look very different from each other today. Difficult to tell which one of both receives the most...

It's also a question of time.
If I go back to my old pictures, I will not get out of the house anymore.

I do have the feeling 'That was then, this is now.' But the 'time' factor is...

To holmertz: The sleeping Buddha

Thank you Gert,

I do not know since when the sleeping Buddha is at that place but it has not always been there.
So I suppose your visit was earlier.

Hello Malgo and Gert,

The reason they gave me was 'security' ...
They were afraid of terrorist acts ...

Don't know if this is the real reason.

Best wishes,
