Our recent item about Bosham, England, was well received - in Australia! A reader identifying himself only as Dennis [we disallow 263 as a second name Dennis - please write again because our reply was bounced] from Perth in Western Australia, wrote to say he was born in nearby Chichester, and as a boy often rode on his bicycle to Bosham to visit his aunt. Dennis, please do not try this to visit our next correspondent, whose closeness is applicable only in the Australian sense of the word.
From 4,363 miles away, on the opposite side of the continent, Carmel Glover wrote from Brisbane in Queensland, to say she had visited Bosham as recently as the spring of this year, while touring Europe and visiting the USA to attend a conference. To our delight Carmel also sent pictures [PDF format at this link, but click the thumbnails for normal display]. With yesterday's feature of a hawk by Eduard Schwan, this surge in reader submitted contributions is very encouraging.
Hello, out there! Anybody in Athens for the men's bicycling time trial get a good picture of Hamilton, Ekimov (Go Viatcheslav!), and Julich? Please get in touch.
