Let me just throw this in.....

Here are my Kathmandu albums and Tony there are some splendid mountain shots here. There is a flight out of Kathmandu in a small plane that takes you on an aerial tour of the Himalayas. They go all the way to Everest and then turn and go back. Everyone gets to go into the cockpit for a few minutes. It's about 120 US dollars and last about an hour. I've done it twice. Stunning.

Come on! I've got two very comfortable guest rooms with lovely bathrooms en-suite. The flight from Delhi to Kathmandu is one hour. The Taj Mahal is a three hour drive away.

I am! I regularly go to Tokyo Disneyland and Disney sea.


Cool! I'd love to see those photos.

Ok, you asked for it!

Susanne, you need to make that album 'public' for us to see it I think. :)


Ok, it should be public now. Let me know if it works!

This photo was taken in February 2009 when I visited the Dutch Island of Texel
A poster outside one shop urged people to Dig For Victory, as if it were some kind of turnip.

Bruge is a funny place, I went there with my Dutch friend and we both noticed that all the shops there seemed to be either selling lace, chocolate or lingerie. :lol:


So true! :lol:

Beth, I love your pictures. I have to admit that India is inching up my list of destinations.

Anyone is welcome to visit me. That has been our policy while living here because we have so much room. We've had the children of friends, friends of friends and friends of the children. While we're here if people want to come please do. Unless you are an axe murderer. Then don't come.

India is NOT an easy trip. It can be emotionally and physically draining and it's very nice to have a beautiful safe place to stay. AND FREE! Whoop! While you are in my house the maid cleans and does your laundry. We've been here for five years so our staff know the drill about cooking food safely etc.

No lighthouse!

US Disneyland looks the same as Tokyo!

If I had to choose one adjective to describe India, I'd say "magical".
