  11. Well... some days ago I was suprised by two tombs on the cemetery. Name on the first was: "Cnota" (Virtue). Near "Cnota" was another tomb with name "Przywara" (Moral defect, Shortcoming).

  18. I'm looking around to see if you caught Big B and Tabu in the photo somewhere. The only reason I could work out this guy's name was because of their movie Cheeni Kum.

    Or if not those two, then Paresh Rawal... he's everywhere.

    Cool shot!
