To williewhistler: bells

Thank you Les,
Yes, there were two bells on display outside the church, but I can assure you they had more of them in the tower. :-)
Cheers,
Gert

To PaulVDV: junk

Hello Paul, and thanks for your comments on this and my other photo.
You are probably right that this was part of a chain. One individual restaurant owner would probably not invest in a huge sign...

To boa: tråkig?

Hej och tack,
Nja, tråkigt tycker jag väl inte att Bratislava var. I Gamla stan var det lite för många turister för att jag riktigt skulle trivas, men kom man bara några kvarter därifrån tyckte jag...

To mkamionka: thanks

Thank you Mariusz for your comments and for your keen interest.

At least for the time being I don't think it would be a great problem to go to Lviv with a small child. It's a safe and quiet city,...

To saxo042: huvudet

Hej och tack,
De hade så där fåniga huvudbonader på 1500-talet. Ser du inte Wolf Hall?

To emka: ukrainian

Thanks Malgo,
I can usually tell the difference between the languages, not from grammar or vocabulary but depending on how the letter "i" is written :-). I noted that in Kiev the signs on shops or...

To batalay: language

Thank you Bülent for your kind comments.
I can't say that I checked the entire stock, but the books seemed to be overwhelmingly in Russian or Ukrainian, including those by Shakespeare and Balzac...

To Royaldevon: statue first

Thank you Bev for your kind comments,
According to Wikipedia it was the statue that attracted the "literary community".
Best regards,

To serp2000: polish

Hello Serghei,
Thanks for your comments. Yes Lviv certainly felt very much like a Polish city. It is quite different from Kiev and Odessa, the only other Ukrainian cities I have seen. To be honest I...

To emka: thanks for ws

Hello Malgo,
Thanks for your comments and for the WS. I certainly don't mind. It's very interesting to see another photo from exactly the same place. This time though the difference wasn't great,...

To kasianowak: thanks

Thank you Kasia, it's nice to hear from you again.
I had no trouble at the border and didn't see whether Ukrainians were harassed, since my bus only went as far as the last Ukrainian village. I...

Thanks

Thanks Kasia,
I was beginning to wonder of you had left us.
Yes, I am still roughly in "your part" of Europe, having just arrived in the Czech Republic a few hours ago. I will re-enter Poland on...

Cello Klaudio

Thank you Klaudio for your kind critiques. For some time I will be mainly off TE, as I am travelling and find it awkward to watch the photos on my mobile phone.
Greetings from Lviv, Ukraine.

To boa: tack

Hej och tack,
Detta är ju en ytterligt enkel bild som jag hade glömt bort men hittade av en slump när jag letade efter något annat från samma plats. Jag kom på att om jag beskar den kraftigt kunde...

To marabu61: selfies

Tack Daniel,
Persons from a certain part of the world, far away from Europe, have always had this fascination of taking photos of each other when going to interesting places. Now they can do the...

To saxo042: tack

Hej och tack,
Det var ju kul att ni fick besök ändå. Jag antar att pojkarna var med.
Detta är med all sannolikhet sista bilden för ett tag.
Jag lär väl höra av mig från Ukraina.
Hälsningar,
Gert

Thank you Paul for your comments.
Looking at this photo afterwards I was a bit disappointed that I hadn't noticed the background. I would have liked to include that part of the old defensive wall....

Thank you Kasia,
I am still at home but I leave for Lviv on Wednesday. My plans are to go straight from Ukraine to Slovakia, "avoiding" Poland for the time being, before eventually flying back home...

Thank you Malgo,
I also liked Sibiu and Sighisoara better than Brasov, also Cluj Napoca, but I just happened to find this photo and thought it was good enough.
I fly to Lviv on Wednesday, stopping...

To saxo042: normal

Hej och tack,
Den här är väl normal och ointressant nog för att duga. Säkert stod den andre medlemmen på samma plats men min bild är faktiskt bättre.
Jag tar väl och slår en signal endera dagen....

To macjake: :-)

Thanks Craig,
I think you are wrong. I can detect faint smiles on two faces in earlier photos from Pakistan.
But maybe you're right that Pakistan isn't quite as charming as India. (Or Nepal,...
