Hello Anabela, Nice to read that you liked Leon. I'd like to return to Nicaragua one day and Leon would sure be on my itinerary this time. The strong point of your pleasant photo is likely the similarity between the bikers helmets and those on the mural, although I don't see exactly the meaning it may have! You also posted a couple of nice shots from Ometepe from interesting places I didn't know. I even looked on Google Earth to see where is that Punta Jesus Maria located. Not so many photos from Central America on TE. Best wishes for 2017, Claude

Hello Chris, Interesting post. Was there for about three days some twenty years ago. I compared with Google Earth and I don't think Livadi is in the bay you mention. It's rather somewhere further north hidden by the wing. Clearly visible on the photo are the settlements of Megalo Livadi (narrow bay at bottom right), Avissalos and Koutalas/Ganema. Funny that "Megalo" (meaning large, great) Livadi is smaller than Livadi! Bonne soirée, Claude

Bonjour Denis, Un petit retour sur TE pour voir ce qui s'y passe. Celle-ci me plaît beaucoup. Plaisante opposition des maisons et des petits bateaux, avec juste ce qu'il faut de touches de couleur. Belle lumière aussi. Amicalement, Claude

Hi Clark. Beautiful photo, quiet mood and nicely composed with the Alcazar and the old bridge pleasantly placed. The first time I cashed money from "a machine in the wall" while travelling was in Toledo. That was in spring 1991 I think. I was sort of impressed that this relatively new technology was beginning to be available in smaller towns like Toledo! The times are changing, but glad to see that Toledo still looks the same. Regards, Claude

Hello Ana, It’s a very beautiful photo, brilliantly realized. Painting-like lovely minimalist composition. Nice colour contrast, pleasant zen mood. I also like the overall uniformity of the wheat field combined to the foreground details. Warm regards, Claude.

Hello Craig, Superb photo, very journalistic. Nicely composed, strong ethnographic content, all people contributing pleasantly to the scene, movement well captured and lovely aerial perspective. Very good. Warm regards, Claude.

Bonjour Patrick. Voilà une fort jolie scène, assez connue bien sûr, mais dont on ne se lasse jamais, surtout lorsque brillamment présentée comme ici. Belle ambiance matinale tout en douceur. Bateaux et pêcheurs agréablement disposés. Contenu ethnographique. Une photo très réussie. Bonne année. Claude.

Hello Neyvan, You may not believe it but I slept on one these benches a night of August 1999, due to a flight that had arrived hours later than planned. And I recognized the place from the thumbnail 15 years later! Nice "street scene", illustrating well the mood of Gamla Stan away from the more busy spots. Claude.
