Nice pics again, Markje!

Lena surely doesn't have anything against her pics being published by you?  :innocent:

And... you HAVE TO do some sports &  lose some weight!  :GRRRR:

She doesn't really know , so I might get into hot waters if she finds out  :-X If she objects I will remove them of course :)

And about my weight: absolutely !!!!

I liked the photos. Since recently i want to visit Ukraine as well :)
P.S. And i find it strange reading some comments concerning people's appearance from srangers. Seems like interferring in the personal private life doesn't it? Why people mind to tell things that are supposed to look negative? Is it any of their business? Just wonder - i understand about saying something nice but if there's nothing nice in your opinion - why to try teaching a person what he/she should do like he/she is 5 y.o.? Sorry ik begrijp er helemaal niet van (don't understand it at all).

Looks like your language lessons are proceeding quite well, if you graps sentances like that, in the dutch language.
Hope you don't mind my correction.

Nice photo's Markje.  Don't worry about the weight, just wear black , fools the lens everytime  :) :)
 You will have to ask Maxx what is going on in the photo that is 8th from the bottom. I think I see a UFO off to the right, I may be wrong of course,but it could be a drone of some kind. Don't trust those Russian's. :P

I think its a fly, buzzing past at high velocity, god knows there were enough in that park :P

If you're into UFO sightings, take a look at this picture from my home city of Almere.

I know what this UFO is, so maybe you can have some fun with it on UFO nerdy type forums.

And no, I think you'd never guess it yourself  :-*  :king:ila_rendered

You mean they have nerdy type forums ?  I only know of these FSU bride seeker forums sigh... how little I know about the internet :duh:

 At first glance I though it was a table umbrella, BUT ! I now think it's a UFO that is skimming the river water to cool the Dilithium crystals before the anti matter impulses went into overload  :) 
 
:scared0005:  Uhh, that's what this other guy told me  :biggrin:

Nope, its a water skiing person taking a turn back the other way. The speedboat is out of this picture and the guy himself is perfectly hidden by the shrubbery  :laugh:

No, I don't collect UFO Materials, but this picture is peculiar. Lena is on the right, but then the UFO would be too small to see :) :)

Thank you for the comments, I feel super-happy too :)

Nice photos Markje !!  Brings back memories.  I made it to all of those churches.  Also stopped by an area overlooking the river that had a monument shaped like a rainbow.  If you did as much walking as I did while I was there; you probably lost a few pounds. ( I'm sorry; a kilogram or so ).  when we went by the War Museum; it was closed.  we ate dinner at a Ukrainian restaurant near this museum. ( and the main church ).  My wife has her only sibling living near us; so I doubt I'll ever need to go back to Kyiv.  Tanya has a list of other places she'd like to visit.  Italy, France, and Australia are all high on her list.   Her daughter on the other hand wants Disneyworld, Disneyworld, and Hollywood.

Very nice photos Markje.  As for the UFO's, there are numerous reports of UFO's in Russia and the Ukraine so you never know.  Maybe you caught one on film, it could be worth big money.
