    🤣 and the blue pills don't work on a PC!
  5. On holiday in Morroco once I went to the edge of the Sahara for an overnight stay in some Bedouin tents. On the way out there it was 52 degrees C. Perhaps we shouldn't have gone in August. 😩
  6. One those who have flown with Ryan Air and are Monty Python fans...... Crucifixion? Take a cross and go to the Ryan Air Desk.
  7. Yesterday
  8. Bloody hell, Just a tad warm! You have my sympathy. Have experienced similar temps in the Persian Gulf and Red Sea many years ago. In some places it got so hot we were not allowed on deck until nightfall as the steel got so hot it would not only make your boots stick to the deck ,but worse, if you happened to put a bare hand a ladder or valve wheel etc you'd lose your skin! Thankfully that was quite rare but one place springs to mind and that was Khasab Bay just inside the straits of Hormuz. Not only did the sun cause direct heat to the ship, but the surrounding mountains reflected their heat into us as well! We were anchored there for two weeks and after two days the Air-con packed up! The Pump had to be removed from the engine room via cranes etc and then shipped by launch to Ras Al Khaimah for repair. It was like living in an oven!
  9. Euthanasia Airlines.....? Just go through the Departure Gates next to Gate 4.
  10. I have too weak hardware for night scenes...Well, behind every joke there's some truth.

    Nice shots Jury, I hope the first one doesn't show the distant glow of the bush fires.
  12. You haven't lost your touch Chris, some great shots there!
  13. I am sorry to hear you have missed Etihad flight madam, we will get you on the next one and still get you there before those jokers would!
  14. Real World Photos of Legs 17-18 (KIER-KLFT-L38) Starting out on Leg 17, I flew along the Red River. The Red River is a different from other inland rivers in that it is brackish, deriving its salinity from crossing over salt domes in Texas. Image 1. Red River Salt Deposits (Note: Photo taken in Texas, not Louisiana) Source: Wikipedia Although the Red River is navigable, it wasn't always so. Until the 1870's it was blocked above Alexandria, LA by "the Great Raft", an approximately 100 mile long log jam. In In 1833, Captain Henry Shreve, (whom Shrevesport, LA is named after) began to clear the jam, a process that ultimately took forty years to complete: Image 2 The Great Raft After departing Natchitoches, I flew over several sections of the Kisatchie National Forest, a forested national park that is typical of the landscape of Louisiana in the 1800’s: Image 3: Kisatchie Bayou, Kisatchie National Forest.

Lake Fausse Pointe State Park (Source: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Lake-Fausse-Pointe-State-Park-164514710265460/reviews/) Flying toward the coastal areas near Montegut, LA, I flew over Pointe aux Chenes State Wildlife Management Area.

  15. The color really impressive on these.
  16. No sir. You have the wrong place. The area for travelers is in the car park at Tesco's just over the road...you can't miss all of the caravans and rubbish.
  17. Have you seen the woman in the grey coat? she has no idea that she's covered in sanitary towels!
  18. To be sure madam , just follow all these lovely people, they've no idea where they're going either!
  19. I must admit it's the first time I've ever had to give directions to an Afghan Hound.
  20. So if you want to go to an airport that isn't remotely near where you're staying I'd recommend Ryanair.
