Hallo Christa, irgendwie muß ich hier ja mal weiterkommen, damit ich irgendwann mal wieder beim Jetzt bin mit meinen Bildern ;o) Schön, daß Du wieder zurück bist, ich hoffe Du hattest eine wunderschöne Zeit und hast auch wieder tolle Bilder mitgebracht!

Viele Grüße, Anette

Danke Anette! Auch ich versuche, den Anschluss ans Jetzt zu finden - vielleicht gelingt es mir im Winter...

Liebe Grüße, Christa

Amazing structure and landscape.

AL1612 on October 12, 2009

The houses look to me a bit as if they had grown out of the earth and this probably even was so in prehistoric times. Because as excavation showed the cracks between the stones were filled with waste materials which also was piled against the walls for further insulation. Thanks for looking in w☺rap☺ng《阿鵬》!

Kind regards, Anette
