To jhm: Aardbeving

Wel bedankt John,


In 1963 was ik nog een kind.
Uiteraard heb ik vaak over die aardbeving gehoord maar dan vooral veel later, zoals toen ik in 1977 voor het eerst naar JoegoslaviŽ ging. Niet...

To holmertz: The most beautiful street

Thank you Gert,


On the map of Bitola, this street seems really narrow, an alley. I was surprised it was so wide.
It was indeed the most beautiful street in Bitola, but the city was also...

To jmdias: Christianity in Rome

Thank you Jorge,


Which symbols do you mean?

To mkamionka: A correct amount

Thank you Mariusz,



I had already paid the man in red the amount my guide suggested as a tip for both.
Both 'sadhus' clearly belonged together.

I refused the extra that the man dressed in...

Hi Gert,


I did not see the 'sadhu' give money to my guide.
But of course such a thing would only happen later. They still had enough opportunity not to have to do this while the tourist was...

To holmertz: Real and fake?

Thank you Gert,


I'm afraid I don't understand your first sentence.
I guess you meant that a fake sadhu will give a commission (a reward) to my guide to have brought me there but not a real...

To mkamionka: Damaged?

Thank you Mariusz,


Damaged? If I remember well, this was a wall on the back or perhaps already a wall of the adjacent bus station.
Anyway, the train station, the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus,...

To ChrisJ: Near Bitola

Thank you Chris,


You have been to Bitola.
You don't need a bus here.
The archaeological site of Heraclea is on walking distance from the centre of Bitola.

Kind regards,

Thank you Kari,


Bitola is the city that has been close to Heraclea since the end of the sixth century.
But in Heraclea's heyday when there were theatrical performances and gladiator fights, I...

Hello everyone,


I think the square looked quite different during my 1996 visit. The buildings were, of course, identical.

But the square itself looks different, more beautiful, in Gert and...

I'm starting to doubt if I've seen Jetavanaramaya. It's very close to Anuradhapura where I was....but my slides are stored so deep... too deep to look up.

Akshardham was also constructed after my...

Thank you Malgo,


Just like you I've also visited Ohrid Lake, Skopje and Matka Canyon.
But I actually wanted to start by presenting photos of the places shown on TE less often.

Nor am I able to imagine the houses or the city when I visit such ruins. I don't think anyone really can.

Sometimes you see in books or on the internet a fantasized image of...
