Super post Gerold and shots with great narrative.  These shots are about as close as I will ever get to that part of the world.

Thanks for you nice and motivating comment, John. Never say never, there are / might be some nice places down there.

Thank you Karl. In real life the flight would be 10:40 hours - imagine how much you would need to drink to compensate the dry air of a plane cabin in that time!
