Well in fact Mads already said it all, so I’ll merely add two of the few pictures I took.

Hey Thomas, This is really neat. So nice of you to go out of your way to spend some time with us old farts. LOL I can imagine Mads is a real character. I look forward to being able to meet both of you one day.

Hey guys :) Thanks for the nice words. I forgot to mention (the aftermath of the beer, probably) that Mads gave me a few symbols of the independency of his country: authentic Danish stamped washers, er, I mean coins. I’m still trying to figure out how to use these in both a pleasing and decent LJ way.

“Danish stamped washers” – that’s funny.

I wonder if those two yard-workers know how famous they are now?? :)

Congrats on a wonderful “LJ meet-up”

Hey there, I did not even see this!
Thank you my friend, it was wonderful to hang out with you, and I look forward to see you again.
I think I will use inspireing for this meeting, and broad.
Nice photos, I especially like the last one… great looking guy! (perhaps a little crazy, the guy I mean) lol.
I look forward to see your next project here, since I now have some inside info…
Best thoughts,

Those gardeners look like they will do well here in Africa. Gardeners here also rest on there shovels all day long…:^)

Salut Thomas

Il n’a y a rien de plus beau que des rencontres entre personnes passionnées ( Peu importe la passion !)
Apprendre à connaître les autres est toujours fabuleux

Belle rencontre et très belles photos

Sodabowski…. you were blessed with meeting a wonderful person and he no doubt also!

One question after seeing his and your photos…. aside from the two park (workers?) it seems that the two of you enjoyed the city without many others in the vicinity. Not many other bodies in those pics.

I know that feeling as I once enjoyed Paris for a few hours (many years ago) with nary a soul around… it was beautiful, enchanting and breathtaking (and about 06:00 on Easter Morning) -LOL …..
