Thank you Kari,

To kasianowak: comparisons

Thank you Kasia, thrice.
I wish I could make many more such comparisons, but this was a rare example. There are not so many places where I have been several times many years apart. People often...

To Royaldevon: communicate

Hello Bev,
Thank you for your kind and well considered words.
It was surprisingly easy to get along with people in Turkey. I was young, and I met a lot of people of my age who had learned some...

To kasianowak: i thought so

Thank you Kasia,
Well, I supposed you would say that an abandoned Muslim child with a broken leg would be taken care of. It's just that in these days of reckless anti-immigrant, rightwing populist...

Hello Bev,

I happened to see "The Beatles" among the "Popular themes" popping up on the page where I see the critiques I have received. Of course I had to take a look.

Hello Malgo,
Such qanats had a long tradition also in Afghanistan and had been the basis for agriculture for hundreds of years. Most of them were destroyed during the recent wars, mainly by Soviet...

To ChrisJ: changes

Thank you Chris,
I had already guessed that that hill would by now be completely filled with apartment buildings. Samsun had already changed completely in 2012, when I passed through the city again,...

Thank you György,
I don't remember anything from this place, so your eyes are as good as mine (and probably better), but yes, it looks like a hill with buildings in the background. My guess is that...

To Tue: far

Tack Lars,
Det är gott att höra att din far kan ägna dagarna åt att måla och läsa böcker. Det är säkert intressantare än att skriva kritik på TE, men jag hoppas ändå att han kommer tillbaka.

From the Google camera car going up the DK14 (Dr. Stefana Kopcinskiego str.) it looks rather abandoned and not in a good shape, so maybe those photos were taken several years ago. But even then the...

Yes they can. The Democrats will kill each other and select someone unelectable, and the dirtiest re-election campaign in US history will crush whoever is chosen.

Thank you Guörgy,
That's the first time I have heard anyone referring to a sacred mosque as a "load of building material". :rolleyes:
