I don't think I've read that poem, although it has been translated to Swedish more than once. But we have a great variety of our own Christmas poems and stories so we don't really need any American...

To alvaraalto: relive

Thank you Rob,
If I were to relive all my old journeys I would have to travel regularly until I am 90 or more. I'm not even sure it would be nicer to die on an African truck than in a Swedish...

To Royaldevon: adventure

Thank you Bev,
This was a few years before I started to work as a reporter, so I was just looking for adventure. "Learning about the world by being there".
I wish you a nice day too,

To PaulVDV: headhunters

Thank you Paul,
In case there were ever headhunters in this area it must have been long ago. However, such habits may have lingered on into the 20th century in very remote areas which colonizers...

To jtovey375: line of land

Thank you James,
I'm also not sure about the line of land, but I decided to keep it to indicate the width of the water and to show it's not the sea.
As for your own photo and your reply, I nearly...

To dta: green line

Thank you Denis,
I also had second thought about that green line. I found an old alternative version where I had cropped it, but decided I preferred this frame, which also as you say gives an idea...

To PaulVDV: independent in senegal

Hello Paul,
Sorry Malgo for breaking in. I just wanted to tell Paul that I travelled independently through parts of Senegal in 1990, and it was quite easy. There are buses or shared taxis going...

To PaulVDV: dangerous

Thank you Paul,

Yes, please mention that! That beats anything I have experienced. I arrived a few days late to a pub in Ireland where John Lennon had been while taking a break from work in 1968. :mad:
