Thankyou dear EVA. I like sharing with you and journeying with you, no matter whether we are in Kiev, Italy, Montenegro, England or Sydney!

Best wishes,

Dear brother Ian, this is a very unusual and interesting picture. Happy to travel through Yorkshire, we crossed the channel only once, a long long time ago (1976 !) Cheers Annick

O my sister, Annick, it is so lovely to receive a note from you. I am pleased that I can interest you in a little piece of England. You may have only crossed the Channel once but I hope you do again someday. It really is worth the visit - and cross the border into Scotland as well while you are over the other side.

In 1976, I was in China for a while, but by 1978 we got the opportunity to cross the Channel a couple of times. First around Easter, when we explored from Calais to Toulouse and Andorra and along the Riviera to Savona and back to Paris via Lyon.

In the summer, we spent most of our time in Germany, but that meant another visit to Paris, Ardennes, Charleville and later to the Voseges before returning to Calais and England.

So I have had some wonderful privileges to appreciate both sides of the Channel, and I dream of doing it again one day!!

I enjoy our little chats ... and those little games you like to play too.

In friendship,

Dear Robyn,

Do you remember visiting churches like this in England and France, way back? And do you remember being locked in one in Saarbrucken? Perhaps you might checkout your first scrapbook.

Lots of love,

Otro efecto visual impactante. Saludos

The architect and the stone masons have had a lot of fun creating such patterns. It certainly is an interesting building.

Thanks for your comment and visit, Juan.
