Photo of the Day Friday 27th July 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
Thought for the day…” Faith makes life possible. Hope makes life workable. Love makes life beautiful.”
I have just read an interesting story on the net about a Cuban born man who was trapped onboard the Helsinki to St. Petersburg ferry for 47 days. He was forced to sail to and fro because his Schengen visa had expired and the Russian immigration would not let him in initially. Just like the film “The Terminal’ he was stuck between countries. If you have travelled on that ferry, then you will know that even 1 day onboard would be enough !!!
Off to Japan for the photo today and to the castle at Matsumoto, not far from Nagano. Built in 1592, although it has been rebuilt since then, luckily the Japanese decided to preserve this castle instead of redeveloping it. Japan, with a population of about 127 million, has the longest life expectancy in the world and the lowest homicide and attempted homicide rates in the world.
Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel in Norefjell, and not missing the managers there at all,
