Who reads the titles to posts, not worthy of a title?

Not worthy Paul, without a picture of Jamaica, but they have been added, so I guess we're in Cuba, but your guess is as good as mine. Oy vey!!!

Thank you for sharing. Really like the demonstration of 3 color printing on the piece of cotton.

Are we stuck in Cuba?

El Duque got out.

I have seen Cuba from the deck of a cruise ship. Does that count?

If so, I would add Russia

Hi Frank....after 6 days, it's time to give this thread a friendly bump.

And. I would like to thank you for posting the picture of the Church of the Resurrection in St. Petersburg (Russia). It is a well-renown and historic Cathedral.

I meant to post these pictures in my post #33 here.

Aerial view of the Acropolis in Athens......



A scene from the Island of Rhodes. One of my favorite movies, The Guns of Navarone (circa 1961), was filmed on Rhodes. Shown here is the location
of the cliff-climbing scenes with Gregory Peck, Anthony Quinn, David Niven, etc. in this movie. The film won the Academy Award for Special Effects.
If you've seen this movie and have visited Rhodes, you'll appreciate why it won this Award.

I thought I took a lot of pictures in India, but looking through it, it seems like I didn't take that many. Here are some of the highlights:



This girl was one of the first beggars we saw; I took this one on the bus leaving the airport. She had just crawled out from underneath that sheet on the left when I took the picture.



I wanted to take a ride in one of those rickshaws...then I actually did. Riding in one of those will keep my cardiologist in business for a long time. They don't have shock absorbers or anything to protect you in a crash, and they sit lower than just about everything on the road. Riding through Delhi rush hour traffic in one of those was an experience.



The Taj Mahal, in Agra. We got there right as the sun was setting. As an engineer, it's incredible to think they built it without calculus.

Ted never said he had been to Jordan, so Santorini (Greece) was not added to the list.

This time he at least implied that he had been to the cathedral of the spilled blood, so Greece was added.

Many of you may not realize that Ted participated in the first marathon during the Peloponnesian Wars. I believe he came in second, which is understandable considering he carrying his camera.

Furthermore if I don't add Greece now, it will continue to pop up.



Note: Moderating this thread is not as easy as I make it look. A raise would be welcomed.

Note also: We are still in Greece as Scott's photos supplement country #2 INDIA. OY VEY!

Ask and you shall receive, Frank; your salary will be doubled.

This increase does not affect the pay you receive for moderating the Monster Number thread. Increases there have to be negotiated separately, and need Leon's approval.

Default Out of Greece and into Poland

I can get us out of the aforementioned Santorini, Greece (the photo is one I took on my wedding day of my wife) and move us into 24 different countries but let's go to Poland - specifically Gdansk.
