I've stayed in the Mandarin Oriental in Jakarta. It certainly is one of the better hotels I've stayed in, with with large, clean, well-decorated rooms. In fact, it was a welcome oasis of cleanliness after walking around the polluted streets of Jakarta. I cannot compare with the Sheraton or Hilton as...Jump to post
The fact that we refer to the different ways chinese people speak as dialects is a little confusing. Actually, the chinese dialects are different languages just as much as, say, English, Dutch, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, etc.. So no, they are not mutually intelligible, though they...Jump to post
Apologies for the spelling error in my previous post. No offence intended.

Do you know if any of those Columbian airlines have printed timetables? I have a collection of over 50000 timetables from around a 1000 different airlines, but still have no timetables from airlines such as Inter, Satena, Aires, West Caribbean etc.. I would love to get my hands on a copy... <img src...Jump to post
No, but very nearly for taking photos from the perimeter of Sung Shan Airport, Taipei. A truck of about 6 plain-clothed police came up. Fortunately none of them could speak english, so after confiscating the film from my camera, I think they couldn't be bothered to pursue it any further.Jump to post

Atcboy73, that's difficult to predict, but I'd expect several decades. The thing is, most of the timetables were widely available when they were valid, distributed over ticket counters throughout the USA. So thousands of copies were picked up, and if you check eBay, these timetables can be bought no...Jump to post
I'd doubt if any airlines fill all 4 of the available routes, as I don't believe there are that many chinese destinations with high enough capacity at present. Guangzhou is the obvious choice, but as for others, it is probably not worth it. <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym>, for example,...Jump to post
About 50000 timetables from 1000+ airlines, dating from the 1920s to present.
Have to agree with Fritzi, Marabou is good. Fazer from Finland also has excellent chocolate, as do a lot of other continental brands of which I can't recall the names.
Cadbury's is mediocre, but the worst I've ever had is Hershey's. Tastes like soap.
Does anyone know if any of these Colombian airlines print timetables? If anyone can supply me with original printed (not photocopied!) timetables from Aero Republica, Inter, Aires, West Caribbean, or any other Colombian airlines, I will pay $10 each plus postage!!! <a href="http://www.timetableimage...Jump to post

Hi Rojo! Thanks for the translation. An International Reply Coupon is something you can buy at your local post-office. It can be then be exchanged in a forreign country in a post office for the cost of return postage, so the person replying doesn't have to pay. <a href="http://www.upu.int/irc/en/irc...Jump to post

So what? You make it sound as though it's something bad. There's nothing wrong with communism as an ideology, it's just that there are problems implementing it in reality.
Capitalism, on the other hand, works 'well' in the real world, but ideologically is a piece of crap.
