To GyurMaster: editors

Thank you György,
I don't remember what I wrote from this particular visit. I probably added these experiences to my general background knowledge. But I was in Africa for almost 3 months and sold...

Can't enter new location

I posted the first photo on TE from a district called Musume in the province of Midlands in Zimbabwe. But like several times before a bug doesn't allow me to enter the new location. I have been...

Hello Benny,
I didn't say "push" in a critical sense. I like the strong colours but found them so intense that I thought you had "helped" them a bit. But if these are the natural colours I agree...

To PaulVDV: oops

Thank you Paul,
Yes, there was a bit of oops from me too. I had planned to show a handful more photos from Calcutta, but in the end i decided they weren't good or interesting enough, even though I...

To GyurMaster: I found out

Hello György,
Thank you for your kind words and for the fav.
But I did find out: Elaine (everlasting) suggested they were watching cricket on the TV. I was suddenly reminded that the same day the...

To Royaldevon: she was right

Thank you Bev,
Elaine's suggestion was not just a very good one. I am completely certain she was right. The world cup final was played that day, only 1-2 km away actually.

To PaulVDV: cultural capital

Thank you Paul,

I remembered it was the world cup cricket final that day.

Calcutta may be known as the cultural capital, but I think it's mainly for a kind of old fashioned culture that appeals...

Hello Paul,
I had a huge rat running through my hotel room in Lagos, Nigeria. I made sure to keep my bananas hanging from a washing line across the room. I doubted it could get to them there. ...

It's the groups that I dislike. There is nothing wrong with going anywhere on your own, with or without a local guide/translator, and if people invite you inside their homes out of hospitality,...

To jean113: baby

Hello Jean,
Thank you for both critiques today. I suppose the baby was left to play on its own on the ground while the mother was busy with customers.

To Royaldevon: sign

Thank you Bev,
Loong suggested that the sign means "Beware of running pickpocket". That's the funniest alternative, but more likely it just means a pedestrian crossing. But since Indian drivers of...

To kasianowak: colours

Hello Kasia,
The colours may be all right, but the faces are too dark. ;-)
But thank you very much anyway for this and the other critiques.
Have a nice day.

Hello Paul,
I didn't mention every street I walked in my diary, thus causing this confusion. I have given Loong credit for his discovery in an edited note.

Thank you Loong,
Fantastic, I think you are right. It looks very much like the High Court. How did you know? I will add this information to the note. ;-)

I asked the same question about the towers. My diary gives me some indications which part of the city this may have been, but the Google views don't give me any help. It looks like a...

Thank you Kasia,
Of course your WS is much better than my version. Somehow the walls look too grey now from what I vaguely remember them. Maybe slightly more beige... ;.)

Hello György,
I had a feeling you might like this, but I didn't really expect you to like it enough to add it to your favourites.
But thank you very much.

To ifege: fruit

Thank you Ian,
Judging from the shape and colour it could be the Indian olive, but I rather believe it's a guava, which was widely available at that time.
