To ChrisJ: province

Thank you Chris,

To GyurMaster: atmosphere

Thank you Gyφrgy,
That WS is also my personal favourite, but since I knew that you would be one of the few to like it I decided to use a postcard instead.
I wish you a nice Sunday.

To macjake: not quite so

Thank you Craig,

Thumbnails are made to be clicked on. Knowing me you should know I wouldn't show just a pile of rocks.

I can't understand any better than you how they could spend so much time...

To ChrisJ: probably right

Hello Chris,
Thank you for the comments. I didn't remember where I took this photo, but judging from the descriptions in my diary you are probably right about the track to the Monastery. The stone...

To BennyV: smooth road

Thank you Benny,
I have been told this track through the Siq has now been smoothed out so someone even older than me can walk there. It seems there are now light shows at night among the temples and...

Hi Craig,
I see that Chris has already kindly provided you with all the necessary information about seeing Petra today. I have nothing to add, since my experience is 24 years old.
Obviously it was...

To kasianowak: changes

Thank you Kasia,
As I said in the note, there will be more photos.
Yes, Chris already mentioned that the Siq has been "gentrified" and made so much smoother. It may have been a good idea, or it may...

To tyro: deleted

Thank you John,
It was pointed out to me yesterday that the photo wasn't quite sharp. When I realized it was true I deleted it and hopefully I managed to improve it.
I have plenty more photos from...

To tyro: rancid odours

Thank you John,

You made a clever assumption regarding the cleanliness of this hotel room. I didn't remember this myself, but it came back to me when reading the diary, that as I prepared to go to...

To macjake: your note

Thank you Craig,

I am really surprised that so many persons have claimed to like this photo. I didn't think it would receive much attention. Well, I don't mind. ;)

To kasianowak: maybe safe?

Thanks again Kasia,
Contrary to the image of Syria spread in the news now it is quite possible that large parts of the country are now relatively safe. There hasn't been any fighting in Damascus,...

To kasianowak: crop

Thank you Kasia,
I never thought of the possibility of cropping this photo the way you suggest. It would have been an interesting experiment and not a bad idea. But if I had done that I would almost...

to ktanska

Thank you Kari,
I had not noticed that problem, but you were right, so I deleted the photo. I'm sorry that you had to waste one of your critiques.

Well, 32 000 people is the countryside, more or less. At least for a country the size of Poland. :D

To drt100: belonging there?

Thank you David,
On my visit I had no reason to question whether that frieze on the ground belonged to the temple, and I am sure it did. But it may have been placed in this spot temporarily, for an...

To GyurMaster: Thank you Gyφrgy

Hello Gyφrgy,
You are really trigger-happy when it comes to faving photos, but thank you very much. Don't you have any photos of a Wash & Vau machine? Is there a choice of 40°, 60° or 90° degrees?...

Thank you Paul,
I also was here before the digital era, and I also don't have many photos to look at. It's very unfortunate.
Most parts of Syria hasn't seen any major fighting the last 2-3 years,...

Hello Benny,
In Swedish we have the word "folkgrupp", meaning exactly the same as "bevolkingsgroep", and I agree it's much better. I estimate that "minorities" are always seen in a national...

If you had had the stamina to read the entire hopelessly long note you would have found my description of that empty area. :D
