Hello Jorge,
The Swedish forestry laws lay equal importance on the commercial value of the trees and the demands for environmental protection. If you own a forest you are free to cut down the trees,...

To emka: looking the same

Thank you Malgo,
I think the old parts look much the same today, judging from photos on TE, but I have a feeling that it's nicer and cleaner. Tourism must have brought some wealth. But maybe Mardin...

Tack Lars,
Jag hade just hört detta från Malgo, som hade hört det från Piotr. Jag har kollat att det fungerar här också. Jag använder ändå nästan alltid Chrome.
Hälsningar,

To jmdias: educated

Thank you Jorge,
i heard about that minister's speech on the radio today. I think Goebbels was a man of some kind of order, wasn't he? Maybe not very progressive. :eek:

Hello Bev,

To macjake: touristy

Thanks Craig,
Yes, I was surprised too that this is near the top of the world's tourism. I thought perhaps the numbers referred to arrivals at the airport, but those figures are much higher. I guess...

To emka: ask permission

Thank you Malgo,

To kasianowak: grown

Thank you Kasia,
The cities have all grown but they probably don't get too many foreign tourists because of their closeness to Syria and Islamic State activities etc. But these photos have made me a...

Thank you Bev,
I am sorry to have to tell you that the main photo didn't scan well at all. That was the reason I converted it to B&W. I should have done the same with the WS but decided it didn't...

Hello Rob,
I happened to see this comment, which reminded me that in 1998 I actually met Prince Claus of the Netherlands in the souk of Sanaa, Yemen. :D

To mcmtanyel: no crop

Thank you Murat,
No, that crop was done on the spot in 1971, when anything could happen with a simple camera. Now I'm just happy that both heads are inside the frame.

To mcmtanyel: turkish grammar

Thank you Murat,
I studied Turkish for two years at an evening school (only 2 hours a week), so I know the basic grammar. Unfortunately that was already in the 1970's, so I have forgotten a lot of...
