    1. It would nice if we could do away with the word verification. The words are hard to decipher and sometimes it is irritating to get the combination right. :(

      Please excuse me for writing this in the comment section, just my humble suggestion :)

  18. Ah, my city!!

    Victoria Memorial is ever so beautiful, partially because of the city it belongs to, isn't it?
