To holmertz: monkeys

Hi Gert, I meant to reply to this previously but forgot. I'm with you regarding the trustworthiness of monkeys. Generally they are a menace. These ones though were completely different, they just...

To holmertz: crop

To kasianowak: reluctant shopper

Hi Kasia, yes, she'd been pestering me, following me around trying to sell me a lip plate (very useful!). This was her final response to my lack of interest in a lip plate, before going off to try...

Hi Gert, Free, well kind of. At these ceremonies tourists have to pay an attendance fee, which is pretty high. You can take as many photos as you like and the people there are happy to be...

To ifege: side light

To emka: tradition

Hi Malgo, It is certainly a strange tradition - I fail to imagine the train of thought that gets them to the point it seemed a good idea. That said, it seemed very much to be a tradition embraced by...

To ifege: after, not before

Hi Ian,
