Thank you Ourania for your kind comments, and for those last night.

To emka: calf

Thanks Malgo,
You are the first to discover the calf among the sheep, or at least the first to mention it. I didn't even see it myself at first. The lady in red I only discovered when I enlarged the...

To PaulVDV: European

Thank you Paul for your comments,

Turkey has certainly become much more "European" in recent years. But I would imagine that the coadstal resorts are not really representative of life in central...

To kasianowak: fond

Thank you Kasia for your kind remarks,

I have a feeling this is not a photo that will please many people, but I decided to post it anyway since I am a bit fond of it myself. Unfortunately it...

To willperrett: scanning

Thank you Will for your comments.

I use a scanner called Nikon Coolscan V ED. I've had it for seven years and it can probably only be bought second hand today. Since the scanning programme didn't...

To ourania: fruit

Thank you Ourania,
It is a big suprise to hear about the gawafa, found only on Leros. I checked it up, of course, and it looks - and sounds - very much like the guava. One site said it resembles the...

To PaulVDV: carriages

Thank you Paul,
It's funny, but I have a photo of similar carriages from Kars. I don't remember if they looked less beautiful than these. All of these were most likely less beautiful and comfortable...

To saxo042: riktig

Hej och tack,
Det här var absolut på riktigt. Här fanns inga turister av den typ som flockas kring Central Park, i Wien eller Rom. Den här sortens droskor var det som gällde i hela östra Turkiet....

To PaulVDV: kilim

Thanks Paul,
Probably somebody tried to sell me a kilim, they usually did, but I don't remember about these guys. I had already bought a small carpet in Afghanistan a couple of weeks earlier so my...

To emka: parents

Thank you Malgo,

I certainly never told my parents everything that happened on that journey.:D I wasn't that crazy. I kept them calm by writing lots of postcards and letters telling them how nice...

To Royaldevon: hats

Thank you Bev for your kind comments,

This kind of hat, or cap, was worn by almost all Turkish men in the 70's, especially by the "lower" classes. They got into fashion in the late 20's and 30's...

To tyro: bugs etc

Thank you John for your nice comments,

I think I had picked up various bugs in almost 10 months in Asia, as well as getting too little nourishments and being generally exhausted. I won't rule out...

To kasianowak: early photos

Thank you Kasia for your kind comments,

I certainly took photos in 1971. but they weren't very good. I didn't "learn" (well...) to take reasonably nice pictures until 1972, when I left for my...

Thanks Kasia for all your kind comments today. I am very proud that at least that time I managed to get out of bed only a couple of hours later than you usually do :D.
Have a nice weekend.

Thank you Malgo,

That's an interesting question. I didn't see anyone spitting, but neither did anyone cheer, as far as I remember. My brother raised another matter: How could people be allowed to...

To saxo042: AN

Hej och tack!
Jag har också funderat över bristen på säkerhetstänkande, men man var väl inte så upptagen av sånt på den tiden. Ännu 13 år senare kunde ju en svensk statsminister gå hem från bion...
