glad to hear that, but if he had let you land it, it would have been worth a beer or two when you told the tale !! (exclamation key is not knackered)

The country is too easy, so it will have to be the location.

Not much use. No runway.


...and those two had better keep moving. Look what happened to all the poor folks who stopped to admire the view.

There's a runway (domestic airport) about 30km north of this location, photo taken looking south(ish).

I was looking at one of her dresses...in a showcase by the Spruce Goose, I hasten to add. It was like the one above, but yellow. What seemed so odd is that it was so small. Must have been very difficult putting all that loveliness is such a small package.

The above posted picture got to be somewhere in Ex-Eastern Europe. My take is in Ex-East Germany.

I expect that many of you will know what and where this is. If you don't you may be surprised when you find out!

Snow monsters, we have snow monsters.





Yamagata means "mountain shaped". I live about 50km north, along the valley shown top right. In the winter we have snow. In the summer it is sub-tropical, growing rice, stone fruit and water melons.

Just an easy one while you're contemplating.





And to make it even easier, an object not a million miles away.

Oh, and by the way, here's another picture of the CN Tower.
