Sele is about 30 min by car from Stavanger. It is open towards the Atlantic, and you can nearly always count on good waves here. There are about 50 km of good surfing beaches in this area.

The father of some of these lovely children wanted so much to be in a photo. They live in the Koptic Christian area of Cairo with its stark poverty. Here they recycle plastics and other materials they collect from richer areas of the vast metropolis. They also have a absolutely unique church here, with seating for many many thousand people, all dug into the mountainside.

After a couple of days and nights of walking and fishing,we felt the need to just to sit and relax. Despite the heat and the mosquitos. More fish than we had caught in years!

Notice Sjøgata 19, straight ahead. First floor in the red building. During the winters in the 60s we used to have local icehockey matches here on the town hall square where all the cars parked. In the summer this is a chaos of tourists and cars. Ivar Lein-M

Kanyakumari, or Cape Comorin, as it is also called, is good place to visit. Here even people from India go for their holidays. They want to be up with the sunrise over The Bengal Sea, watch it during the day towards the south over the Indian Ocean, and see it setting towards the west over the Arabian Sea. People are in a jubilant mood particularly around 5-6 in the morning. A wonderful, fascinating experience.

This is how a typical bar desk in Paris should look like, with the zinc top, where guests usually hang. Now, Parisians are not keen on being photographed at the bare, so here it's empty. This particular bar is in Belleville, the working class area of Paris. But you find them by the thousands all over the place.

The Eiffel Tower (La Tour Eiffel), spectacular but distant. To really watch it you have to go 2 different places- either like here, from the Palais de Chaillot on the other side of the Seine river, or just underneath it. The climb up to the first level is well worth your visit.

Hey Nakhon, good you like the photo of the streetcar. My view is that old towns and cities are a lot more interesting than shiny new ones.

Hey Jill, good you like my photo. Actually my village is a bit further north west of this village. It is called Berlevag ( you can go to berlevaagnytt.com and see their very interesting homepage and formidable webcam. I had a look at it today, and now the 7 October, there is already some snow on the ground. A great place to grow up. You can also go there directly on Google.earth. Ivar

Some people stay in touch. A lot.
