To ourania: Unconnected

Thank you Ourania,
Unfortunately my connection is still cut off. It's a major "disaster", likely to last for another week, so I will mainly be off TE for a while. It feels like going back to the...

Thank you Angshu,

Kind regards,

To kasianowak: romania

Hello Kasia and thanks a lot for this smiley and the other two today. I never cared much for that oversaturated ws either :-).
Romanis is worth more than a whistle stop tour so maybe you should give...

Thanks for informing me about the "bollard"....

To mesutilgim: boiling

Thank you Mesut,
All of Sweden is boiling too. The last few days it has been more than 30° C everywhere, even north of the Polar circle!:eek:
Kind regards,

To emka: not very risky

Thank you Malgo,

I had forgotten this, but I think you are right. I was actually standing in the middle of the street to take this photo. But I looked very carefully in both directions and was...

To ourania: sign

Thank you Ourania,
I am glad you liked this. And did you notice that there is a sign in this photo too, although not so easily seen because it is turned the wrong direction from this POV (but the...

To robertosalguero: people

Thank you Robertu,
Well, we see pictures differently. The "interaction" of the architecture and the people was precisely the reason I took this photo. Roughly one or two persons (and one tree) for...

To ourania: signs

Thank you Ourania for your ever so kind comments.

I am not really sure if street signs are such a constant thread in my Polish photos, but I agree there have been a few. I may have one or two more...

To emka: thanks

Thank you Malgo,
I was about to write in the note that you could probably explain the flag. If only I knew how to edit a workshop-note I could add your explanation, like I did with the story of the...

To saxo042: cyklister

Hej och tack,
Så då blir det bilder från Idre snart.
Skylten betyder att förbudet att svänga till höger inte gäller cyklister, men de skulle naturligtvis ha skitit i det under alla förhållanden. ...

To kasianowak: rynek

Thank you Kasia,
The Wroclaw Rynek is also very nice, but there is unfortunately a very ugly concrete building in one corner (with the local offices of the Gazeta Wyborcza, if I remember...

To tyro: commersialism

Hello John,

Thanks a lot for your kind comments.

Yes, the tourist district of Poznan is quite commercial, but within reasonable limits, in my opinion. I have seen much worse places. These days...

Hello again,
Although I can't remember hearing about Poznan in 1956, or was just too small to understand or care, of course i learned about it in due time, well before I visited the city this year....

To emka: granda

Hi Malgo,
This is Gert :-). It was our maternal grandfather (our mother's father) who was born in 1874 (died in 1962). Our great grandfather was of course born much earlier, but probably well after...

To macjake: tourists

Thanks Craig,
Wherever there are nice places there are bound to be tourists. Sometimes it gets just crazy and I hate it, other times it's reasonable, like in Poznan and Wroclaw. But I never spend...

To bbarna: 1956

Thank you Barnabas,
I am old enough to remember the uprising in Hungary in 1956 quite well, but strangely enough i have no memories of the protests in Poznan. After all I was only 9 years old....

To saxo042: turistvänligt

Hej och tack,
Enligt Wikipedia som jag just kollade, lite sent, är husen från 1500-talet, sannolikt restaurerade efter kriget, och målade så här på 1950-talet. Det kan väl inte uteslutas att de såg...

To emka: beer umbrellas

Thanks again, Malgo,
I agree that beer umbrellas destroy many views, and this was the case also in Poznań on the periphery of the Rynek. Fortunatly the central part was saved. The square in Wrocław...

In 2012 I visited this place to find out if it had changed and to see if I could take a new photo from the same spot. But it was impossible because of the great changes. The...

Of course tourism will get worse and worse, until global warming makes it impossible to send millions of people around the world in huge airplanes. Whether the tourists are...

Hi Malgo,
Did you notice who added the first of Jan's photos to his favourites? That one remains one of the funniest pictures I have seen on TE.

Thanks Jason,
Yes. you're right. Serghei pointed out the sign of the girl. Then I noticed that the man was resembling the other sign and realized this was no coincidence.
I have to admit I didn't...
