To Tue: bönekvarn

Tack Lars,
På svenska heter det bönekvarn, så det är ju precis samma som bedemøllle.
Trevlig helg,
Gert

To mcmtanyel: not really a hotel

Thanks Murat,
As I wrote in the note this was not really a hotel in the Western sense, just a small restaurant (and not at all bad; I had several nice meals there). It is a peculiarity of India and...

To tyro: greetings

Thank you John for your kind words.
Of course I don't know anything about these two men, but I wouldn't be surprised if they met every day. In many parts of the world greetings are like ceremonies...

Mariusz, of course you are referring to me as "one of the TE members". But what the hell do you know about me? How dare you call me narrow-minded and claim that I don't travel with an open mind? You...

To macjake: comparison

Thanks Craig,
Nothing remains the same after 33 years and a dramatic expansion of mass tourism. I haven't found any recent photos from the same spot, but those I have seen on Google and elsewhere on...

I think you are more exposed to possible terrorists or any kinds of criminals if you travel in a group on a tour arranged by a tourism company. I always travel on my own, using local transports, and...

Thank you Murat,
A prayer wheel (there are several kinds) is inscribed with religious mantras and prayers and usually also contains inside it pieces of paper with prayers written on them. Spinning...

To tyro: kodachrome

Thank you John.
The workshop photos were also taken with a Kodachrome (almost certainly 64 ASA). I stopped using Agfa CT18 in the autumn of 1972. Any hues reminding you of Agfa are only caused by my...

Well, I was at Kovalam in 1988 and I guess things have changed. I think Varkala may have been less developed then, or maybe it was just further away from Trivandrum and more difficult to reach. But I...

To CLODO: thanks for the WS

Hello Claude, thanks for the WS.
It was actually much bluer before I started doing about the same as you did. I just didn't do enough, so I appreciate your version.
Kind regards,

To pierrefonds: scanner

Thank you Pierre,
I use a Nikon scanner called Coolscan V. I have had it for 10 years and it is getting old now. Maybe I will have to buy a new one.
Have a nice day.

Hello György,
I thought maybe you would like the grain, but perhaps not enough to make this a "favv". But of course I appreciate that, so thank you very much.
You will here from me again . ;-)...

Thanks Craig,
I would be very surprised if there had been toilets in these buildings. And I can't imagine they had running water. Even in Leh city, which had at least 20.000 inhabitants, there was...

Hello Paul,
Thanks for your comments. I have memories of India since the early 1970's, and of course the changes have been enormous in some ways. So much more foreign influence, such fundamental...

Thank you Jean,
Well, what do I say? I think most portraits in the street start with people looking curiously at me, asking where I come from, or we just get an eye-contact. Then I ask if I can take...
