Comments07/12/2016 #4 Dean Owen#3 I suspect it has to do with sports. I mean, the Chinese don't really play sports where you throw things, except for basketball - unlike us cricketers and American baseballers. But then again, we all think we can throw, but the funfair games where you have to knock down a stack of cups always seems to burst our pride.07/12/2016 #3 Ken BoddieI need to watch this again later on my Mac. Couldn't quite see the detail on my iPhone. Nothing more stupid than throwing rocks at a known aggressive snake. Lucky it was a baby. It's surprising how many people misjudge the strike distance and speed of snakes. Many bites occur in Oz when manly men have a go with a stick or a long handled shovel. Funny how you can never find a snake charmer (or whisperer) when you need one. 🐍07/12/2016 #2 Dean Owen#1 I was surprised the cobra stuck around so long.

Comments08/12/2016 #6 Ken BoddieI love to see large and interesting street art murals, Paul, and have many pics of beautiful works on building walls, mostly taken in the inner city suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne. I find it easy to differentiate, however, between this attractive and clever art form and the utterly defiling and desecrating graffiti, which often surrounds it, and in which I see neither art nor reason other than as a statement of barbarism and social disintegration. I love Yogya, have family there, and visit there often with my wife, but I must admit to never having seen street murals there. Perhaps I have been focusing too much on the traffic and the interesting way the motor bikes buzz around the cars without collision. Any chance you can be more specific where you found the first two murals?07/12/2016 #4 Asesh DattaArt is a special skill to be enjoyed by the viewer and in turn, the artist enjoys creating it and acknowledged by viewers. Issue is public place as a medium of displaying art. Streets are meant for traffic and must be avoided unless exclusively reserved for the purpose. Secondly, on wall or on display boards these are acceptable if not objected publicly.
Most of the time such arts are creative with a social message. However, these must be a source of revenue for the city municipality. Quite a few displays are photo graphic portrait and such arts are easier to display and replaceable
So street art by painters must be allowed at designated streets only. Jogjakarta can take a lead and have a global street art competition.
Thanks and regards07/12/2016 #3 CityVP ManjitOne way of me looking at street art is amazing creative expression. The other way is the daily waste of creativity ignored by government and business and which is first slowly eradicated through the educational system. The message of the underlying human condition here isn't one of destruction but to say look at the flow and energy being ignored - a statement that we matter and that we want to make a difference. The great starting point of that isn't in the street art but the education system - as the graffiti says so well "if graffiti changed anything - it would be illegal".07/12/2016 #2 Dean OwenThat is quite a focused passion! I had no idea about this side of Jogjakarta, was always too busy haggling for Batik. Quick question - Of the thirty cities which single one stands out in terms of creative street art? One of my favourite artists is Jean-Michel Basquiat whose works you look at and just know it was him. Love a bit of graffiti in the right venues, but usual prefer it not to be in my neighbourhood. I am sure you would agree one would not like to see graffiti adorning The Royal Crescent in your hometown of Bath!

I got exposed to absolutely stunning architecture and beauty. I was v. lucky!03/12/2016 #17 Deb HelfrichWay to cover the big 4 of Dutch tourism, @Ken Boddie. One of the most memorable books I have ever read is "Amsterdam" by Russell Shorto where I learned 4 things:
1. The Underwater situation of the landscape can be directly traced as a source of the city's famed liberalism.
2. One of Anne Frank's contemporaries - Frieda Menco Brommet whose life was intertwined with Anne's including being in Auschwitz together for awhile - was still alive in August @ 91 years old to meet with Shorto on his trip.
3. That the Dutch are very suspicious of pharma, even though famous for tolerance to soft street drugs.
4. One of the most bizarre things I have ever encountered is that I have a male look-alike whose portrait in the Rijksmuseum is from 1642. Spooky likeness at a distance, for certain.02/12/2016 #15 Gert Scholtz@Ken Boddie "Poffertjes" haven't heard that word since last my children could not stop eating it when we traveled the Netherlands.

Comments01/12/2016 #12 Lisa Gallagher#11 @Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝 thank you for adding what you did. One thing that stood out, "Survivors guilt." I traveled by train from Erie Pennsylvania to Denver Colorado (I had a fear of flying, so I took the train for 31 hours), anyhow, I would ask others I met why they were traveling long distance instead of flying? One man told me he was in line to board the DC 10 which took off out of Chicago Ohare in 1979 and crashed, killing all aboard. He gave up his space to another man because the flight was over booked. That crash, the man and all aboard affected his psyche for years and he was still unable to fly in 2012. Thank you for adding the security measures all should take. I'm sure that panic does keep many from thinking clearly.01/12/2016 #11 Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝@Oliver McGee#9 Thank you for writing in english about such a traumatic event that happened this week. From the whole episode, there are countless lessons to be taken, going from the 3 players that got injured and could not do the flight and now they are alive (how many times we blame ourselves and others (god) for small unfortunate events (in the case of the players = an injury) but those sometimes avoid a much bigger ones. Anyway, it is great to see all the global support for the team and the families so far, the typical "faith in the human race restored". As I read a lot about this fatality in Portuguese/Spanish , one thing that stuck in my mind was the flight attendant's report (one of the 6 survivors) that said in the final seconds of the crash, many got in panic mode (which is a normal thing to do due to the circumstance) and even stand up and unbelt. The flight attendant said he just survived , first : Because of "luck" and Second: Because he followed the emergency procedure all the way (fetus position and had a suitcase between his leg for absorbing the possible impact), I think that is an important info/lesson to share with anyone who flies.01/12/2016 #9 Oliver McGee, PhD, MBA, CFRM, AFWCIHere's the exclusive take inside my post shown now in bold - "this aircraft was not suitable for a (1,867 miles or 1,623 nautical miles) 3,005 kilometers flight (performing as LMI-2933, en route from Santa Cruz (Bolivia) to Medellín (Colombia).
