I am terribly sorry about the awful template this blog has right now. I don't think there is anything I can do about it right now though. If I can ever change anything again, I'll disable the comments and get back to a white background because black backgrounds are the worst thing ever. [Edit: fixed, although I'm not sure I love the new template, but I can't be too choosy.]
And now I am curious if I can post photos by mail. If there is a photo here, it's the new Manas statue that replaced Erkindik about a month ago. I like Erkindik much better in every way.
