These pages are simply the compilation of almost all (except for few of very bad technical quality) of the pictures that I took during this trip. So you may consider it some kind of photo diary.
The pictures are sorted according to the rolls of film they belong to. Inside every roll they are arranged in groups of dozen or so (in order to avoid very heavy and long-loading pages). Don't be disappointed if your browser doesn't show thumbnails too well - the quality of the scanned pictures themselves is relatively good. Well, as good as I managed manupulate my camera while taking them. Please don't shoot the pianist. Just click on thumbnails and see full size pictures.
From anywhere the click on the will bring you back to this page.
If you prefer to browse pictures off-line, here's the .ZIP archive of all the pictures. BEWARE! It weighs about 16 Mb. Within the archive the images are numbered with roll number and frame number (please note that the regular movement of film in my camera is from HIGHER numbers to the LOWER ones). All files with the names starting with "i" are the little thumbnails. All pictures are true color JPEGs at 72dpi resolution. The thumbnails are at 150x100 pixels, full size pictures (except a panorama) are at 600x400 pixels.
