Loo with a view

In the morning, Dubova, Romania, October 2008
While cycling the Danube bike way we found a nice place for our tent. It was close to a new (and big) house under construction. And this loo was for the workers. A quite place at night, because nobady was there.
And so beautiful at the Danube.

In the train Delhi to Amritsar, India, February 2009

Do you see the man lying on the baggage rack
These two photos look so different, but they are from the same crowded train.
India is full of these contrasts. That makes it such a special, interesting and incredible (theire advertising) country.

What's going on?

Tiananmen Square, Beijing, China, May 2010
What? Where? Who? Why? When? And oh wonder, all these words in German start with a W too. Was, wo, wer, warum, wann.
My ABC Wednesday are all the W question words.

Who is everywhere on Tiananmen Square?
This film team got some trouble while filming there. I nearly got some trouble while taking a picture of these scene.
