    Your pictures bring back some fond memories of Istanbul. I Blue Mosque is particularly beautiful. Thanks for reminding me that Canada is not the only place in the world with beautiful things to see!

    Merry Christmas

      Hi Jim! You remind me I did not visit Canada yet – while you look like having seen much part of this planet.. I have a friend in Vancouver, maybe I should pay her a visit! But then, what’s best in Canada? Merry Christmas to you too!

        Canada is awesome. Vancouver is really beautiful. Canada has the coast line like Norway or Sweden, as you go east. the Rocky Mountains are like the Alps, the Prairies are like the German heartland, forests are like the Black Forest, Lakes the size of small oceans, coastline like the British Isles and loads of friendly people. By the way, if you plan to visit, it is about 10 million square kilometers and takes about 70 hours 100km per hour) of straight driving to go from coast to coast….better back a lunch!

        Merry Christmas

    Hi Lorenzo!
    I really like this set of photos!
    I like a lot the first one (the sunset), the third (the bridge) and the fifth (the colourful building on the river).
    Thank you for posting!!!
