    Well, I hate bugs ... so the jungles of Burma are out ... and that goes for India, Thailand and Bangladesh, too.

    What say we do the diamond vaults in Russia or the religious vaults in Spain ... where those bozos did the good old "Inquisition." Lets see what other dirt we can turn up, eh? Better yet, the interior of the "Dome of the Rock" ... without accompanying eye-ballers. Maybe we can locate the Lost Ark of the Covenant or the Holy Grail. You know, somewhere that is total forbidden by religious or other convictions ... and let the love light shine!

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Well we have to think this out, Now the food in India, especialy the north is awesome, and well Thai food is a fave of mine also, But there is the heat and the humidity issues for the gear, Oh and the beer isn't to good there. The secrets of the Knights Templer in the Holy land now that might be a interesting photo/journal project. What about a compare and contrast photo session between the production, culture and social aspects of Irish whisky and Scotch whisky?

    That's it! Get them to spring for a group trip to the next Ryder cup. We can take turns on the camera around the course while the rest do research at the 19th on that "culture and social aspects of Irish whisky and Scotch whisky" thingy.

    There are plenty of bugs in Spain and Russia!! The Spanish hornet is quite a large, fearsome, agressive blighter. I've been 'chased' by them a number of times lol.

    I'm not sure what beer y ou were drinking in Thailand, but Singha and Chang are top, top beers!!

    Wow, if we found the holy grail we might be able to afford ONE A900 and a CZ24-70 to share between the lot of us!
