    Hello Klaudio,

    Most of these dishes look familiar, with the lamb kofte on a spit (shish kofte) especially beckoning. The pilav with safron (even in the Spice Bazaar in Istanbul they claim Iranian Safron is the best) I would prefer with a spoon or two of yogurt. This photo is frustrating at lunch time (it's 11:40 am in Washington).

    Warm regards,

    Hello Gerrit,

    It's a pleasure to see this photo of the skyline, including the spires of the Cathedral. Sixteen months ago in January of 2014, we were in Santiago, and impressed by all that we saw, including the home of Pablo Neruda. We went onto the port of Valparaiso and a cruise to Easter Island, Pitcairn and Tahiti.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Dear Lisa,

    I too like the abstract quality of this photo, a veritable modern painting. Without your note, it have been impossible to guess what we are viewing. The hues of red and pink are magnificent.

    Hello Paul,

    With the long line of colorful umbrellas the Sakura trees make a splendid backdrop. It appears that the trees blossomed at approximately the same time as the Sakura trees in Washington, DC. In a brief visit to the Tidal Basin on the same day (12 hours apart) I saw a similar situation in Washington. (The trees in the Nation's Capitol in America were a gift of the people of Tokyo to the people of Washington in 1912.)

    Warm regards,

    Hello Noel,

    With extremely sharp depth-of-field, you've shown the fleeting spring flowers in the foreground against the ruins of a the church tower of St. Mary's Abbey in the background. I wonder if the abbey was destroyed during Henry VIII's dissolution of the abbeys movement?

    Hello Ally,

    You were observant picking up on the strange practice of topping trees at precisely the same height, like the "flat-top haircuts" some men would have in the 1960s. I like your note that explains the practice of Topiary.
