To kasianowak: coconuts

Hello Kasia,
Thank you so much for today's critiques. Yes, as far as I can see they are coconuts.
Paul has posted a good photo of the famous bull. It looked different at my visit, much darker...

Indeed I was surprised that it was already such a long time since you were there. I could hardly believe how time flies. ;-)

To emka: far west

Thank you Malgo,
I am quite sure we didn't go that far west. In fact I don't remember that we walked along that shore at all. But maybe my memory is fading after six years.
Have a nice weekend....

To lousat: too late?

Thank you Luciano,
In this part of Europe every time is too late during winter. It was only about 2 in the afternoon. I arrived as soon as I could after having lunch. Maybe I should have waited...

To emka: very close

Thank you Malgo,
I think we crossed this street less than 100 meters to the left, but it was already dark then. Usually this places is nothing at all, it was entirely the special light (and the...

Thank you Malgo, I could see the films. They widen our impression. You should add the links to the note.
Cheers,

Thank you Paul,
Are you sure you haven't been there? It is just below the street where you took this photo:

To Royaldevon: funfair

Thank you Bev for your carefully written critique.
In the note to the WS I had originally described a great experience I had at that fun-fair in 1967, when I heard the Jimi Hendrix Experience from a...

Hi Chris,
I was a bit ironic when I said that 37 TL sounded cheap. I remember when they scrapped 6 zeros in the early 2000's to make 1 million old Lira equivalent to 1 new Lira. Suddenly the Lira...

To emka: engine

Thank you Malgo,
My dictionary mentions both versions, but 'engine' is shorter than 'locomotive'.

There is one right in the centre of Amman too. But Greek or Roman – what does it matter for the experience today? ;-)

To emka: gender

Thank you Malgo,

I also thought the person with the phone might have been a woman, but after looking closely I am sure it's a man.

This area is the most gentrified, trendy and "modern" part of...

To ChrisJ: no

Thank you Chris,
No, the observation deck is not open to the public. It's the control room of the power plant and classified as a high security object.

I suppose the boat, and the pontoons, are safely secured and won't sway too much. But in case of a severe storm I would personally prefer to stay at home anyway.

Hello Paul (and Malgo),
Some media have been allowed up the tower, but it's classified as a high security project, so I doubt that it's open to the public.

To PaulVDV: winter

Thank you Paul,
I get the impression from the restaurant's homepage that the igloos are open in winter too. In case of a snow storm they will provide very exotic eating places.
Kind regards,

To lousat: igloo

Thank you Luciano,

I think the igloos are air-conditioned in summer (if necessary; Swedish summers are not always like Italian) and heated in winter.

I agree that ugly and hidden places often...

To emka: igloo

Thank you Malgo,
No I haven't been inside any such igloo. You have to order a 'Thai fusion menu' at 495 Kronor (excluding drinks) per person to sit there.

So I suggest you immediately start posting photos from your latest trip, one at a time (and workshops), the good old way. ;-)

I would read "why didn't you ever post any?" as a kind of advice, expressed in a more subtle way than "you should post some".

To emka: houseboats

Thank you Malgo for commenting on this even though you don't like it much. I am sure you have lots of photos of much more interesting boats, but why didn't you ever post any?
Kind regards,

To lousat: nightlife

Thank you Luciano,
I wouldn't like to live like this either, but I don't think the local nightlife in summer would be a major disturbance. It's a fairly empty street between the water and a hill...

To adramad: WS

Thank you Luis,
The WS was taken by Malgorzata (emka) several years ago, in a very different light which made the colours turn out quite differently.
Best regards,
Gert
