Oooops.... I didn't dare to assume this obvious meaning .... sometimes life is easy, too :) Too old for waterskiing though :))) Prefer sitting in the boat next to you. ~~~~~~~~ <3

And when the skiing and boating is done, then it will be my choice to explore some of Walter Christaller's lower order central places, such as Lonning. They are full of history, strong on identity and overflowing with characters that reveal the political pulse of a nation. I will welcome a guide...and an interpreter...and a teacher.

Warmest regards, dear Maja.

Thanks Naklaj21. It is a beautiful landscape. Warm greetings from Australia.

Come over dear Ian ~ I'll be your guide and your interpreter ~ can't imagine being your teacher though ~ we're both teachers I think ~ let me be your fellow explorer ~ looking forward...

Love, Maja ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HI Maja! I have come over, would you believe! I am in Medan right now, so I have come over the Equator and that puts me in your hemisphere! Well at least it is a start. And the offer is accepted in anticipation of a day when it is all possible. Thanks, my dear friend.

Are you on Ian???

Ian Stehbens on June 29, 2010

Dear Maja,

I have been out for dinner in an excellent restaurant in Medan: Norwegian salmon, believe it or not. Heading up to Parapat and Lake Toba tomorrow early. And Lake Toba is one of the very special places in the entire world, I assure you. Last time I was there was 10years ago. Looking forward to seeing it all again. Glad I have had a small opportunity to be online. Good night.

Now I am back from Lake Toba, Maja and I was taken out tonight to a Balinese Restaurant that specialises in Barbecued Seafood. Crab, fish, calamari, prawns all with plenty of Balinese Chillied joy! I really did feel as if I was back in Bali and not in Medan! But the hospitality was generous Medan!

See what you are missing by not coming this way...yet. Try stepping through the mirror - when dreams become realities!

I have a few images from Lake Toba, but at this time of the year there was some rain and it is generally overcast here, so there aren't many bright images.

...In due course.



Maja Weidemueller on July 4, 2010

I will dear Ian ~ we fixed it already, and I'm for real :) ~ looking forward to your images from lake Toba, not because of the rain or no rain ~ your dinner sounds delicious, would have loved to share it.... in due course :)

I am not sure I want you to have free rein when you design your itinerary, for there are so many special places in SE Asia that I would want you to see and experience on your journey to OZ. Hope you are enjoying the Toba images on this site and the Australian ones on the other.
