Hello Noel, Today I watched some of "Titanic" again- I've seen it too many times to remember- but this time with my niece and nephew. :-) I'm sure we would all be fascinated by the exhibits in this museum. The modern architecture is great, and I like your B/W presentation, too.

Hello Takero, This is another excellent view of these trees. We can even see which way the wind was blowing with the snow firmly frozen in place. If I look at these trees long enough, they look like giant snow monsters about to start walking away. :-)

Hello Takero, What a beautiful winter scene. I can almost feel the cold; it must be freezing in this location. It looks like a foreign, frozen planet, with no signs of life. The pastel colors in the sky are wonderful, too.

Hello Serghei, This landscape is so lush and green. I like the different types of trees, and the hills in the background. Without the white vehicle in the middle, there would be no sign of people in this tranquil spot.

Hello Gert, This is an attractive and exotic photo. With the animals, and the traditional clothes, it could very well be a Biblical scene. One donkey seems to be very fond of the other one, which is sweet. I don't mind the grain or the pole in the middle either. :-)

Hello Gert, I'm glad that these old gems keep coming. :-) Seeing daily life in such a faraway city is a real treat. I like how many African shops have a drawing on the side showing what kind of business it is, or maybe in this case, who owns it. Your note is funny, too. These men seem to be wearing a lot of clothes for such a hot climate.

Hello Paul, I must admit that I like the name of this town. :-) It's very unique, and your photo prompted me to look it up and find out more history about where the name came from. It's a very charming scene. I like the colorful flags and flowers, and of course the man driving the cart.

Ciao Luciano, This is funny. :-) I guess there was someone also standing beside you who was photographing this bending couple at the same time. The pink wall is also unique and colorful. You snapped this scene at just the right moment.

Hello Bulent, This is a lovely view of the dining room with all its grandeur and history. It looks more like a study or hall or library to me! The rows of lamps on each table are a nice touch. Do you think Cambridge created more Nobel Prize winners, or more future winners were simply drawn to study there? I guess I'm wondering if the institution makes the students, or the students make the institution. :-) I'm assuming the number of Nobel Prize winners listed in your note were not only in the field of science, but maybe I'm mistaken.[+]
