So many photos, so little time

No, it is not Israel!
Now, at the midnight contest deadline, I just finished three days of steady image uploading to Wiki Israel.
I contributed hundreds of photos for which I had to write informative but short titles, for almost 30 heritage sites in Israel and Jerusalem.
There were over 600 physical sites on the nationwide list to chose from. 
It was my first time and there was much to learn about how and what to contribute. 

But now I can't bear to look at even one more local picture again, not even for the blog.

So here is a favorite shot of the medieval ramparts that protected Nymburk, now in the Czech Republic!

I went there in 2006 to be at the wedding of my young friend Pavla.
Was living in Switzerland part of that year, so I took the 11-hour night bus from Zurich to Prague. Oi . . . very long and dark.

Sometimes it is tempting to start a second blog about my times outside of Israel.
What's the fun of photos if they can't be shared.
But now my eyes need a good rest.
Tomorrow is another day.
Good night to all and to the folks at Our World Tuesday.
And the nice Czech town of Nymburk is for N Day at ABC Wednesday.

The medieval ramparts are quite fascinating, must have been a great place to experience first hand.

Great photo of the medieval ramparts - so interesting to see something like this on the other side of the world from me.

You're a hero, Dina.

Plus this is a wonderful photo!

Oh wow, Dina, that's some accomplishment! Rest your eyes and - I'm sure - your mouse hand. :)

Oh wow, 3 days... You could have driven to Prague and back!

Great bit of surviving architecture. And I am specifically delighted you are starting your world project in the old Czechoslovakia. Joe was quite young when he left Prague; needless to say he loved visiting the old sites after the government changed.

You are right, this picture (and the place) is great. I spend already too much time checking data for photos, but somewhat it is the more relaxing and instructive part!

A very interesting photo, Dina, but not as interesting as the work you have just completed. Congratulations on managing to contribute so many photos. I hope you have a good rest.

I think you have done a great job and you do a wonderful job with sharing your pictures from Jerusalem!
And the place in photo and link looks lovely, would like to visit some day.
Photos are for sharing:-) But it takes a lot of time, ask my SpiderDan.
Have a good rest Dina, hugs from north

You have always surprised us with a lot of interesting information and you taught me a lot. I am very grateful and glad that I met you, Dina. Take care!

I like your Israel shots, but this is NICE too!

This is so very interesting. I would just show your photos on this blog instead of starting another blog. It would be hard to maintain two blogs.

I love that shot!

To contribute to Wiki is a great thing.
It's good to have one blog and post what ever you like. You could add a page "travel" to your blog.

Nice photo from a special place.
