    The amusing thing here for me is that I heard that song a few years under 50 years ago and I only get to find out about Marrakesh in this buzz !

    For me music is milestones more than beats - for this is where it captures our individuality and so what we happen to like is different to what it happens to mean. A great example is the song that stamped my psyche after 9/11 - which was Gary Jules https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N3N1MlvVc4

    When Pink Floyd sang Another Brick in the Wall that is a memory ticker that coincides with Alice Cooper "Schools Out Forever" - you can guess I was at a school which all of us did not want to be at. I can enjoy masses amount of commercial pap because I keep liking separate from meaning. For sure when we talk about song composition and beat this fits in the middle space between like and meaning - but music for me is what flows through my imagination, so much so it is individuality and music becomes DNA.

    Perhaps the song I don't like to hear but which carries the most haunting meaning for me is Terry Jacks "Seasons in the Sun"

    #14 CSNY's most poignant track was Four Dead in Ohio , an anthem to the Kent State shootings when the Ohio National Guard killed four students protesting the Vietnam War and the incursion into Cambodia

    Four Dead in Ohio - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfOx2AQOW1A

    These shootings led to mass Student strikes, and it was H.R. Haldeman, Nixon's Chief of Staff involved in Watergate who marked the Kent State shootings as the moment that created the deep scrutiny on Nixon's administration, that eventually uncovered Watergate and led to the impeachment of President Richard Nixon.

    The Marrekech Express is Crosby, Still, Nash's most joyful song, Four Dead in Ohio their most significant. Close

    Having been nearly 50 years since Crosby Stills and Nash recorded the song "Marakech Express" it is about time I actually saw something of the real Marrakech and now I have, it was a great way to catch a glimpse of it in this sublime buzz. I don't remember a buzz of yours before which broke into a novelist dialogue but the effect of the 2nd section added some personal "being there" and it worked. Great photographs as always and I concur with @Paul Walters about the debonaire bit.

    @Paul Walters It is always nice to read about our own city from a traveller and, that too, from another country. Like political capital, commercial capital, Kolkata is being labelled as cultural capital of India. Apart from historical significance and imperial construction, there are other facets which British have left as legacy. Some of them you may list in your next trip are Fort William, Eden Garden, Belur Math, Botanical Garden, Gun and Shell Factory (even before British Period), Clive House and New Town. Then the attraction of food, art and culture apart from language (Bengali). Thanks and regards.

    The British left India in 1947, but they left behind quite a bit of baggage โ€” starchy clubs with antiquated jacket-and-tie dress codes completely unsuitable for Indian weather, a passion for cricket and English and Anglicized names.

    Every city had streets and squares named after English viceroys and governor-generals: Clive, Hastings, Dalhousie. Soon the new government was busy renaming those roads and landmarks after Indian freedom fighters. Lala Lajpat Rai. Tilak, Gandhi. Nehru. A lot of Gandhis and Nehrus.

    I, too, admire mature architecture. But, how can Kolkata be the most vibrant city if there's no mention of the nightlife? Surely, you must of mistakenly stumbled upon a pub from days gone by somewhere along the line.
    By the way, I've traded the tall blonde for two shorter versions. May the best one win. The decision may be made final Saturday night -- if they don't find out about one another beforehand. They're old friends.

    Still finding it difficult to imagine Basil Fawlty with an Indian accent, Paul. And the half naked gentleman standing next to the STD sign had me worried, until I figured out the abbreviations are associated with telecommunications rather than a warning about the dangers of overfamiliarity.

    A busy City indeed @Paul Walters! Kolkata is full of history. I enjoyed reading about this city. Your jaunt in the Taxi.......... OMG LOL! I would have been crapping myself (excuse me for saying that) LOL. I love train stations, tracks and trains too. That was a really cool station and busy as heck by the appearance of all the taxi's there?!! You did get your belongings, right? My husband flew to the Canary Islands out of Scotland about 10 years ago and on his way back 2 of his bags went missing. They said they would have the bags at Heathrow by the time he left to go back to the States, that never happened. After many calls when he returned, I finally got a hold of a man at the airport in Scotland and I could barely understand him (his brogue), you'd think I would have been able to since my grandparents had a very strong brogue. Anyhow, he said let me check, came back all excited saying he found my husband's stuff and gave me a telephone number with email address so we could get his stuff sent here. Uh, somehow it was never to be found again. He even told me what was in the bags. Sorry to remiss about that incident but your story made me think of it. Ok, enough about that, you are a wanderlust and I love it!

    Apparently, it isn't about the devices or they would be banned across the board. The BC article says it is due to concerns that they may be used for terrorist attacks.

    #19 @Hervรฉ Sabattier Thank you Herve. I have been many African countries and I think Uganda is the most unknown for its natural beauty. But of course there are Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, Ghana, and Botswana, just to name a few, all with their own unique charm.

    Gert, Uganda is not the only hidden jewel in Africa. A few others, even more hidden, are waiting for you...

    @๐Ÿ Fatima Williams To me there are two things that broaden the mind and change our thinking: reading and travel. I have been lucky; about twenty five different countries visited. I hope to do posts on other places in future. Thanks for the encouragement Fatima.

    #13 @Pascal Derrien It is striking how similar the ground and plant growth is between SA and Brazil. Apparently before land masses moved millions of years ago, thetwo continents were joined. Thanks for reading!

    @Ken Boddie I find travel is best when the destination or the events are not on my bucket list. These chance occurrences and trips broaden and enrich, exactly because it is unplanned. Thanks as always for reading and commenting Ken.

    #8 @Dean Owen I recall flying over and the pilot telling us about the cove. Like you I had to make sure and found that it was true. Thanks for commenting Dean โ€“ looking forward to your next Asian travelogue.

    And yes, what about Land Use and LAND transfer ... if your project is good, i might have buyers.

    Chandrapur also has the poor water table and air quality with rampant deforestation and crime problems arising out of poor labour practices across the many coal and limestone dependent industries. One can google the number of Public Interest Litigations including Tadoba.

    This is not a criticism though, i really want to know your efforts and how they improve environment, local employment and economic concerns of the area. Maybe you become the pioneer in getting a ancient district back on its feet in a sustainable manner.
    Could you provide more information?

    I am also curious as to how you are associated with this project and whether you are aware of the poor ecological and waste management practices of the area?

    #2 That certainly sounds like a place both me and my husband would enjoy hanging out. As you can see, my married name is Irish and my husband grew up as a Catholic too. What a treat! We have a few fun places to hang out in town, but nothing nostalgic like this Franci. When I would go to Myrtle beach, we always ate at this really cool Irish Pub our first night out. They had outdoor seating too and the food/atmosphere was awesome!

    There has been an Irish pub in every city I lived. It is the rock I can always grab onto. The Dubliners Tokyo, Paddy Foley's Tokyo, McGettigan's Singapore, Muddy Murphy's Singapore, Molly Malone's Singapore, Healy Mac's Kuala Lumpur, Delaney's Hong Kong, O'Malley's Shanghai, I raise a glass and shout Slรกinte!

    #1 It's quite a treat, Lisa. Built and owned by a retired Irish priest. He has great stories to share. It is an enjoyable time, indeed. My ancestry on my father's side is Irish - maiden name O'Keeffe, so this is a very special place to me.
