Hello all,
This now very long thread looks addressed to me, so I should get involved again. ;-
The Americans have good memories, and when they've decided they don't like you, they stick to that....

To PaulVDV: back

Thank you Paul,
I didn't worry much about the lost back of that man. He is too far away to be important to me. I was more concerned about the lost right toes and left heel of the nearest man but...

To kasianowak: agra

Hello Kasia,
Thank you for these comments and the others. Unfortunately I took very few photos in Agra, and they didn't turn out well. I remember scanning a few but only one was even remotely...

Thank you Paul,
I think those red and yellow things are what Chris's picture indicates, to be used when the traffic is temporarily redirected or a street is temporarily closed. There's a lot of...

To ChrisJ: no

Thank you Chris,
This was not taken from Riddarholmen but from the mainland, near the PM's office. Riddarholmen is across the water on the right side. If you had clicked Map:view you would have seen...

To mcmtanyel: yes

Thank you Murat,
You are perfectly right. Without these objects it would have been a plain and uninteresting postcard that anyone could have taken without even thinking. At least I tried to make...

Hello Kasia and Paul,
In 2009 I was in a town called Jorhat in Assam state. When I saw a travel agency offering flight tickets I went inside just to see what services they could offer. I asked if I...

To kasianowak: pronunciation

Hello Kasia,
Thank you for your comments and for the mail. The "u" is pronounced in a way that only Swedes (and maybe Norwegians and Danes) could ever learn. The stress is on the second syllable,...

To Royaldevon: inside

Thank you Bev for your careful and detailed comments. I am almost certain the other balloons were inside the window, most likely indicating that the school is on that floor. It would have been too...

To emka: amusing

Thank you Malgo,
I was aware that "interesting" would have been a better word than "amusing" in this context, but I had already written "uninteresting" in the same sentence, so I didn't want to...

Hej Lars,
Jag får andra sprutan på onsdag. Tre veckors väntan, och sedan kanske jag vågar åka tunnelbana igen så att jag kan se andra delar av stan.
Hälsa din far.

To macjake: do locals live there?

Thank you Craig,

You ask some interesting bit somewhat difficult questions. I found 23 persons registered as living in the narrow orange house in the middle (built in the 1520's). In case there...

To kasianowak: almost right

Thank you Kasia,
You are almost right. The only reason I bothered to take this photo was because I had a chance to show something in the foreground. I didn't mind that some details were red. When I...

To Energysavingelk: 1921?

Thank you Sven,
The houses were probably built in the 19th century and the uniforms were probably designed about the same time. Don't you think this looks modern? ;-)
Best regards,

To kasianowak: not closed

Thank you Kasia for today's comments.

I don't think these shops were actually closed. They had been taped off to keep people away from some newly painted details on the façades. There were signs...

To kasianowak: WS

Thank you Kasia,
I guess you didn't notice (nobody else did) that the WS photos were supplied by Malgo and taken in mid-December.
Have a nice weekend.

To Royaldevon: striped tape

Thank you Bev,
The striped tape annoys me a bit. It looks rather sloppy. But there are signs on the windows warning of fresh paint, so I imagine the tape was intended to keep people away from the...

Hello Chris,
I also don't care much for royal palaces or gossip about royal families, but it's difficult to avoid the palace, and Västerlånggatan, if you see Gamla stan in Stockholm. You have posted...

Thank you Kari,
There are signs on the windows warning that some details on the façades were freshly painted. I guess the striped bands mean to keep people away.
I agree that Västerlånggatan is...
