I include here same links that are either related to the material in the travel logs or of general interest. Many of the links one finds on the web are of commercial nature, stressing hotels and accommodations. I have tried to weed out such links and concentrate on links related to history, geography and culture.

Unfortunately, links seem to disappear regularly from the web and I cannot vouch for their currency.
