visa

Hi,
It sounds like you will be allright. I think they just stopped issuing visas at the borders. There was a thing in the Swedish radio today that every passport must be valied for at least another...

To Royaldevon: tilt

Thanks Bev,
This photo has a rather strong tilt for which I am entirely to blame :o. Unfortunately, straightening it up would not only cut off the lady's elbow but also the top of her head, and I...

To macjake: temples

Thanks Craig,
I fully agree. Taking pictures of temples gets boring after a while, since most of them basically look the same. And that goes for churches, palaces etc as well. Those pictures are...

To macjake: thanks craig

Hello Craig, thanks a lot for your comments.

I suppose I could have erased both men in the background but decided to leave them here for the sake of authenticity. I don't remember if I thought...

Thank you Ourania for your kind comments,

To mcmtanyel: just traveling

Thank you Murat,
This was several years before I became a journalist. I spent 10 months just traveling in Asia, starting and finishing in Istanbul. I regard those months as an important continuation...

To macjake: bamboo

Thanks Craig,
I'm not quite sure if that man is a regular cop or just a security guard. The thing he's holding behind his back is in any case a lathi, a truncheon usually (or traditionally)...

To photographer_sg: thanks

Thank you, Satya, for your comments on this and the older photo. They were certainly from Old Delhi. If I remember correctly from somewhere in the vicinity of Ajmeri Gate,
Kind regards,

Thank you Mesut,
After about 10 journeys to Turkey, visiting almost every corner of your country, I suppose I am learning to recognize Turkish faces :D.

To UlfE: ws-bilden

Tack Ulf för intressanta synpunkter.
Helt visst är den andra bilden originellare och mer spektakulär. Jag valde att bara ha den som WS därför att den helt enkelt är så mycket sämre skannad. Ganska...

Thank you Kasia,
Yes, I have a feeling you are right. I get a strong suspicion that they were talking about me. I do wonder what they were saying. Only nice things, I am sure...:D

To mesutilgim: chatting

Thank you Mesut,
Yes, as I look at this photo I tend to enjoy those two girls the most. I probably didn't even notiece them at the time I took the picture. I think they may be talking discreetly...

To tyro: misunderstanding

Thanks John,
Your PS makes me a bit confused. I can't find find the information you refer to in Malgo's notes that the houseboats had been used in Kerala for a long time. I didn't see any in 1988,...

bridge

Hello,
No I don't think anyone was allowed to even get on the bridge. There were guards on both sides. Maybe there was some kind of border trade, but otherwise very few people were given visas to go...

Hej Ulf, och tack för kommentaren.
Det slog mig förut att jag råkade kalla ditt senaste djur en utter. Hjärnan slant till. Jag vet att det var en bäver! :D

Thanks Serghei,
At this place I was still breathing normally, but the next day I was quite sick when we climbed to more than 4 000 meters before entering into Ladakh. I wasn't quite prepared and had...

To boa: badade

Tack Boa,
Usch nej, inte badade jag här. Detta var bara en transportsträcka, långsammare men roligare än att åka buss eller tåg. Längre söderut bodde jag några dagar vid en lång fin strand. Den...

Thanks Paul for your kind comments.

Thank you John for your kind comments.
Actually, neither Turkey nor Afghanistan are Arab ountries, but of course they share the same Islamic culture.
I think you shouldn't draw too many conclusions...
