2,000,000 photostream views!
It happened on the same day - the 2 million mark on photostream views and 10 million views on flickr in total (photos + photostream + sets + galleries)
This is me a month or so ago, by a pool in a lovely hot place, with one of my favourite Adidas shirts on!
Thank you so much for all your view, comments, friend invitations, support and friendship over the past few years. It started off as just a place to upload photos from our trip to Middle East and Africa, where our friends and family could follow us on our journey from Istanbul to Cape Town. It has ended up as a place to make friends and keep up with their photos, their passions and their lives. It has led to a number of treasured meetings in places as far apart as Saudi Arabia, Macedonia, London, Amsterdam, Dubai, Italy and, not to forget, Odessa in Ukraine! Hopefully, there will be more meetings and in other places. Inshallah.
I will write more here tomorrow, in the meantime, it is late, time for bed. Big day tomorrow, with Eurovision Song Contest and related party at our place!
In the meantime, some other statistics (I love 'em!)

First million came up in 37 months, second million in 22 months.
Going to try to work out how many countries are represented by photos on here - and there are a few countries where I have been (mostly pre-digital age) which are not yet on here.
