Articles about other lands and their customs and traditions are welcomed - travel stories and photos are particularly appreciated.
"Explore" more than 120 articles here. Just below to the left are the words "DISCUSSION FORUM" but just to the right of them, in difficult to see blue lettering, are words "VIEW ALL". Click that to go to many pages of fascinating articles posted on this group.

It would be best, therefore, to be civil in posting on this group.
By now it should be well known that I am unable to open certain videos and pictures. If I cannot, I will ask that they be described and explained. If the poster refuses to comply, their comment will be deleted. Instagrams are banned.
