To burmaman: diagonal lines

Thank you Ronny,
Yes, those lines were tram tracks, probably old but still in use in 1991. Most probably the trams are still running along this street.

To PaulVDV: varanasi

Thank you Paul,
Yes, I had spent almost a week in Varanasi several years earlier and this train passed nearby in the middle of the night. No need or wish to get off.
I originally uploaded the...

To Royaldevon: policeman

Thank you Bev,
It is probably thanks to the policeman in the foreground that the traffic is running so smoothly, very orderly and well organized. ;-)
The other photo from this street was taken only...

To kasianowak: lost WS

Thank you Kasia for nice comments and the fav.
Now I have seen the WS that was lost with your last upload. It's a fantastic photo and should have been another main upload.
Kind regards,
Gert

To ChrisJ: sharpen

Thank you Chris,
I also thought I might have sharpened it a little more, but when I did, it turned too noisy. Trying to clean the noise didn't make it any better.

Hello Christine,
It's a tricky question. Many years ago I was on Malta when one day a storm had blown dust from the Sahara across the sea. The sky was completely red, in fact everything looked red,...

To PaulVDV: suffering?

Thank you Paul,

I actually didn't enter my mind that this cow would be suffering from anything. I can't think of any disease that could have caused those red marks, and I hardly think they caused...

That, I admit, will be difficult. But they are planning several new stations, so who knows how they will look?

To jean113: yawning

Thank you Jean,
I am almost certain he was just yawning. Or maybe he had seen something on Facebook making him swear silently to himself. At least I didn't hear anything, and I was quite close....

To alvaraalto: surprised

Hello Rob,
I was surprised that you found this photo of a rather unknown music group suitable among your favourites, but I am very honoured.
Thank you, and have a nice day.

To jhm: lost note

Thank you John.
I also lost my notes a few times, but now I usually avoid that by first posting just a few lines, then I add the rest by using "edit". There seems to be some kind of strange bug, but...

Thank you Benny,
I really thought that if anyone on TE had ever heard of Thomas Mapfumo it had to be you. Of course I was right. ;-)

Thanks Kari,
The hand is definitely unfortunate, but I decided it doesn't entirely spoil the photo.

Hello Bev and Paul,
Swedish children (and probably geese too) are taught that you drive on the right side but you walk on the left, so you will face oncoming cars. Clearly these birds are careful to...

Thank you Loong,
Yes, of course I have eaten with my hands, at least on my earlier journeys to India, and especially in the southern states. When I was young I usually had my meals at cheap places,...

Thank you Miguel,
Yes, I am sure this is actually curd, but I couldn't remember that word.:( But there is not much difference between curd and yoghurt.

The Afghan photos were made with a Nikon scanner which I no longer have. But more important than the scanner was probably the program downloaded from the net, called VueScan. It's not free but not...

These bikes are all owned by a handful of companies. I think you have to download a mobile app and use your phone to rent one. Apparently payment is transferred straight from your...

Thank you Bev,
These bikes are all owned by companies that can probably trace them anywhere. I have never tried any (too old!) but I suppose you can't use them unless you pay for a ride with a...
