To GyurMaster: cottage

Thank you György,
I would also have said, without really knowing, that a small building in the countryside is a cottage, a larger one is a house, regardless of environment.
Have a nice Friday,
Gert

Yes, I know. I was just thinking of the patterns of squares and rectangles and balancing colours.

To jmdias: thanks Jorge

Hello Jorge, thanks for your comments.
Did you read that your president the other day dismissed a Swedish teenage girl as a "pirralha"? Today Time Magazine named that girl "Person of the year". She...

Hello Robert,
Thanks for your interesting explanation. TE is full of strange bugs, but they seem to hit different members in different ways, and some members don't seem to be hit at all.
Regards,...

To Royaldevon: signpost

Thank you Bev for your kind words. I didn't mention it in the note, but I had written about this signpost in my diary. I could have been photographed with a signpost pointing at Gothenburg (where I...

To Tue: din bild

Hej Lars,

Trevlig vecka.

To GyurMaster: absurd

Thank you György,
I actually liked the WS better too, but I thought it would be too strange and absurd for most people.
But this was only "near the end". The real end will come with my next...

To drt100: scanner

Thank you David,
I have a Plustek Optic Film 8200 scanner which I recently bought, but I use a scanning program downloaded (at a modest cost) from the net called VueScan. It's an American brand and...

To willperrett: Thank you Will

Hello Will,
Thanks for your surprising comments (not what you wrote but that you did write). I'm afraid I don't remember at which pub I had my lunch in St. Ives. Maybe the same?
Best wishes,
Gert

To kasianowak: red boat

Thank you Kasia,
I must admit I sank another red boat (cloned it out) because only half of it was seen at the bottom of the photo. But I think it's better to have just one boat breaking the pattern...

To alvaraalto: people

Thank you Rob,
All humans have the same value, but not necessarily always in photos. I had taken lots of pictures of people in Asia before 1980.

Yes, I know it's not an airport, but it looks like they could have been preparing one. I tried to make a little joke. ;-)

To kasianowak: changing weather

Thank you Kasia,
Indeed, the weather seemed to be changing about every half hour. I had a clear blue sky and heavy rain and back and forth all in a matter of a few hours.
Best wishes,

Hello Bev,

To alvaraalto: standing?

Thank you Rob,
With the WS I think I was standing on the ramparts of an old fortress, but the main photo is a total mystery. Maybe I had first been to the Shipwreck Bars and got a bit high. That...

Thank you Craig,
No need to be sorry. Baby duty is really more important than being on TrekEarth. :)

Thank you Jorge,
It was not curious to go there by helicopter. It was a regular British Airways flight using a helicopter because there was no proper airport on the island. It was a much quicker way...

Hello Kasia,
Thank you very much for your kind remarks. Yes, it's true, there are really people out there who prefer empty, dead streets and squares. :cool:

The writer's name was William Trevor, Irish living in the UK. I met him again in 1983 for a new interview. Just the other day I found out that he passed away a couple of years ago at...
