Hi Jorge,

Funny but talking about dogs I was also thinking of Chile.

To Royaldevon: In full sunlight before my arrival

Thank you Beverley,


In blue lagoon number 3 the sun never shines (because of the steep mountain slope that shields it almost completely).

The tires are used for tubing.
Tubing on the river and in the lagoons around Vang Vieng is a very popular activity.

Thank you Gert,


The year 2020 started as the dream I had cherished for some time.

No, the flight was in the late afternoon, a so called sunset-flight.
