Great delpeoples 2013-11-19 5:17

Merhaba Deniz

Oh I love this! Edinburgh is one of my favourite cities in the world (probably 2nd behind Naples) and you have captured it in all its grey glory. Gee you did well with that diffused light and grey sky. Aren't those rooftops wonderful? I'm trying to pick out the rooftop of where I worked in Cockburn Street in the Old Town, but can't pick it. I'm sure it's there. The sharpness and definition are so impressive, as is the tight framing. Even in thumbnail, I knew you'd climbed the Scott Monument - and remembering how high and narrow it was - you get extra brownie points!

Have a lovely day...did you read about the diplomatic incident between my government and yours? I think our government is banned from attending the Centenary Celebrations in Gallipoli - oh dear! Silly governments!

Cheers
Lisa

Hi dear Lisa,

Cool! Had no idea you had worked in Edinbra! Must have been an amazing and unforgettable life experience.

Had no idea about the latest incidents either

How creative ways do the politicians find to disable the friendship of nations...

If they don't stop considering the world history, no further friendships should be possible. Even the Greeks and the Indians, Vikings and the Arabs, Turks and Aussies fought in the past... But apart from the past hostilities, future should be something different.

Cheers,
Deniz

Exactly! And condemning each other for past sins is counter-productive. I'm sure we don't want to be reminded of how we have treated / continue to treat our asylum seekers or our indigenous population! Why do governments always seems to ruin it for us?

Yeah I worked in Edinbra alright. My sister, best friend and I originally went to London. They ended up staying in London for 2 years, but the big city scared me and so I escaped to Scotland, first Edinburgh and then the Highlands where I worked in a whisky distillery It was one of the happiest times of my life, although my poor liver probably didn't agree with all the whisky it was processing Then I went to Ireland and eventually had to go dry out in Italy hahahaha.

I'm glad you liked Edinburgh.

Cheers
Lisa
