To Tigerlily: thanks

Thank you Jasmine for your comments and interesting information. It didn't occur to me what this was about, but thanks to you (and Wikipedia) I can now see that the characters say "falun dafa". :)...

To saxo042: tack

Hej och tack,
Bilder från Norge och Danmark lär väl dröja, men redan med nästa bild har jag tänkt börja gräva i arkivet igen. Men du har väl många bilder från grannländerna att lägga ut....

To kasianowak: thnks

Thank you Kasia for your kind comments,
Maybe it's the vegetation that attracts Asians, or maybe this particular place has good feng shui vibes. Or maybe it is actually Sibelius. The Moomins are big...

To emka: thanks

Thank you Malgo,
Yes, of course I saw these two unique churches but my photos are not very interesting. For my next upload here I will enter my time-machine again ;).
Regards,
Gert

To saxo042: inte vänta

Tack,
Nej, jag behövde inte vänta alls. De satt där redan när jag kom. Det var väl deras placering som triggade mig.
Vissa titlar upprepas gärna. Jag har sett rätt många "Before the rain/storm" vid...

To kasianowak: some luck

Thank you Kasia,
With talent and experience you will always find people wearing the right colours :D. Actually I'm not even sure if I thought about the colours, I was mainly concerned with the...

Hello again,

Regarding the "favourite" status I just coincidentally, to my great surprise, discovered I hadn't done that long before. It's never too late to correct a mistake.

Regarding "the...

To kasianowak: thanks

Thank you Kasia,
I have a feeling that the Nordic countries are generally more tolerant and open-minded than some others, maybe this goes for photography too. But I would have hesitated a shot like...

Hello,
Yes, I saw Silvio's remark. :D
Abmdsudi seems to be one of the few who can take portraits with perfect backgrounds in busy markets. Normally it's hard to avoid these "unwanted" persons. Once...

To ikeharel: languages

Thanks Ike,
As you may know, all street signs (and other official signs) in Helsinki, and probably all over Finland, are bilingual. Keskuskatu is Finnish, Centralgatan is Swedish. You can see that...

To kasianowak: nicolas

Thanks Kasia,
I was surprised I didn't know about Le Petit Nicolas, so I looked him up on the net and found that only two of the books were ever published in Swedish, and not until the 1980's, when...

I thought that Scandinavians get so drunk because we live in the "hard liquor belt" of northern Europe. But habits are changing and now "we" drink comparatively much more beer and wine and less...

You didn't miss a thing if you didn't see the brainless Japanese movies, but the original books are wonderful.

To PaulVDV: time

Thanks Paul,
A boat ride is possibly nicer than flying, but I would find it a total waste of time. I enjoy walking the streets of a city much more than walking the decks of a huge ferry packed with...

To williewhistler: evening news

Thanks Les,
Although the books about the Moomins were written in Swedish they have been translated to 43 languages according to Wikipedia. The comic strips were originally made for the now defunct...

Thanks for the information. I checked the map and found this was not so very far from where I was staying. It's incredible that I must have overlooked this corner. :confused:

To kasianowak: footear

Thank you Kasia,
Of course I had checked it out, but I was slightly puzzled by the translation "restatement winter footwear". "Sale" would have been a lot easier to understand (especially in June)...

To tyro: purse

Thanks John,
You may be right about her purse. I just find it so strange that a young woman on her own would buy a rose for herself. Roses are supposed to be given to women, aren't they? :rolleyes:...

To boa: tack

Hej Boa och tack för kommentarerna.
Jag gillar också gamla fabriker från den klassiska índustriperioden och det finns gott om dem i Polen. Nästan i varje stad finns det köpgallerior, konstgallerier,...

To ourania: ferry

Thank you Ourania for picking up this relatively old photo. It's no use addressing a puzzle like this to a Greek islander. You are quite over-qualified :D.
Kind regards,
Gert
