Bikes look so much cleaner in B/W, no? Now if only they really were so spotless and de-greased.

I mused for a full 5 seconds over why the Paprika shot was described as "ironic".

//no detours to Transylvania?

thanks, i thought you might go for the green.

thanks, and also for the link-up. this is the first in a sequence of three :-)
no, i was in hungary purely for pleasure, thankfully. visiting an old friend. funnily, he and his wife both mentioned several times that i could easily work in hungary, until one occasion when they realized that people there might be unpleasant to us since they might think since we're dark but not african we must be gypsy, and that would be trouble.

heh - that's not the tune you were singing that day. i've given you the equivalent of several thousand words, have i not?

oh but they are.

that *would* be museworthy, i agree. very 'musing.
no, no transylvania -- we decided to try that *next* time :-D

thanks! the commentators on this blog have a history with the words thing...

you're welcome. more on your way.

you're welcome ;-)

ha! that's the whole point, signor non-postino.

As opposed to the US, where if you are dark but not African, you must be Middle Eastern.

At least the gypsies may have originated in India, so perhaps they are not too far off!

middle-eastern is still an advance in epistemic terms. some years ago you'd be mexican.
