Such a beautiful place. Sadly, previous comments show some hatred. Everyone should be embraced (not just tolerated), except the intolerant. There is power in diversity. Everyone has grievances, but those have to be dealt with in a constructive way. The path of the Bin Laden and other terrorists is not to be followed. Attacks on New York, Washington, Bali, London, Barcelona, Mumbai bring tears to my eyes.

Do the right thing, embrace diversity, resist intolerance.

Nothing last forever. Not me, not you, not the earth, not even the sky.

People, don't go crazy over the name of the bridge. I am sure it doesnt mean ADAM created it. It happens to be the english language name for it.

Try to appreciate the natural wonders of our mother earth and preserve it. Not a good idea to keep fighting over silly religious stuff that doesnt even matter to us in the real life. :)

I Repeat, all religious comments will be deleted, LOL

**Kuro Siwo**

Στίχοι: Νίκος Καββαδίας Μουσική: Θάνος Μικρούτσικος Πρώτη εκτέλεση: Γιάννης Κούτρας Άλλες ερμηνείες: Θάνος Μικρούτσικος

Πρώτο ταξίδι έτυχε ναύλος για το Νότο, δύσκολες βάρδιες, κακός ύπνος και μαλάρια. Είναι παράξενα της Ίντιας τα φανάρια και δεν τα βλέπεις, καθώς λένε με το πρώτο.

Πέρ' απ' τη γέφυρα του Αδάμ, στη Νότιο Κίνα, χιλιάδες παραλάβαινες τσουβάλια σόγια. Μα ούτε στιγμή δεν ελησμόνησες τα λόγια που σου 'πανε μια κούφια ώρα στην Αθήνα

Στα νύχια μπαίνει το κατράμι και τ' ανάβει, χρόνια στα ρούχα το ψαρόλαδο μυρίζει, κι ο λόγος της μες' το μυαλό σου να σφυρίζει, "ο μπούσουλας είναι που στρέφει ή το καράβι; "

Νωρίς μπατάρισε ο καιρός κ' έχει χαλάσει. Σκατζάρισες, μα σε κρατά λύπη μεγάλη. Απόψε ψόφησαν οι δυο μου παπαγάλοι κι ο πίθηκος που 'χα με κούραση γυμνάσει.

Η λαμαρίνα! ...η λαμαρίνα όλα τα σβήνει. Μας έσφιξε το kuro siwo σαν μια ζώνη κ' συ κοιτάς ακόμη πάνω απ΄το τιμόνι, πως παίζει ο μπούσουλας καρτίνι με καρτίνι.

Exellent picture! Grettings from Hellas, Vasilis.
