  9. Not only sheer tenacity, but kind enough to grow in a colour that contrasts perfectly with the arid rock of the background. A great image Doug.

  10. Have you been to Casa Mila in Barcelona?
    This canyon wall inspired Gaudi to design the ventilation towers for Casa Mila! :o)

    Alright, I am going to Italy for a holiday.
    See you next week.
    Save some yaks for me, please.

  11. W tak cudownym i surowym miejscu jest życie, to niesamowite. *** Mam nieśmiałą propozycję do Pana w koszulce z napisem Polska, aby zagościł u mnie na stałe, tak jak ja jestem jego gościem. Pozdrawiam.
    In such a wonderful place and life is harsh, it's amazing. I have a timid proposal to you in a shirt that says Poland to reappear with me permanently, as I am his guest. It would be nice. Yours.
