I think the beautiful landscape of Europe has something to do with the amount of sunlight and the colour of the sunshine. Asian just doesn't look as beautiful.

It shines at a different angle. Here it is hitting down right on top of your head thanks to the vicinity of the equator.

Sounds like AMS turned you into one of them there damn hippies WD! ;-D
I think the light is different, also it's easy to forget that in EU almost no windows have a UV coating on them which changes the colour spectrum you see. Plus the foliage is different, far more seasonal foliage, with deciduous trees etc, so as the flora re-emerges from winter it becomes a riot of vivid dayglo green. A similar colour to a field of freshly sprouted rice.

If not the country she's been posting from (all her posts) I would say, perhaps just a malformed response. Anyway, Elena, you managed to attract attention.

Managed to rebuild this topic manually in SQL. Strangely, the topic entry is missing but the posts are intact.

Let me know if there is any problem.
