Nice picture JJ

Beautiful places!

You are one lucky guy (as long as you still stay under that sand) LOL! And that was a joke :)

Chile looks to be one of the interesting land to be explored.

Hope one day I can make it .

Stay well,



Thanks JJ for sharing

Looks like this is one proud fat country.   Or at least from the sample size. 

Here's the challenge for you:  Do Rio next.

Costs in Chile

by Jahanshah Javid on

auto7643, you can rent a room in Santiago for $150-$300 a month. It's even less in other cities. Food is slightly cheaper than the U.S. and much cheaper than in Europe. Public transportation (metro, bus, taxi,...) is very inexpensive too. I found a very cheap flight to Santiago using online search engines which show you ticket choices from many vendors.

In his/her rage, auto7643 was unable to see you hard at work in pic #58!, if he only knew just a pack of cigaerrets are about £15 nowadays.

BTW, is it your finger sticking out of sand?

How can you afford spending a month in Chile? Can you give us pointers on flights, hotels, food, etc?


More Handsome Men!

by Mahvash Shahegh on

Everything is fine in these pictures except the male models :) Could you please photograph more handsome, less belly- sticking- out- of- shirt men for God's sake!!! One may think there is no good looking male in the whole Santiago except our own Jahanshah Javid:))

Happy New Year!

Good for Mahdiyeh who has a father like you whom she can visit all over the world!  I bet you if you ask her this is what she'd say she likes most about her father!  

Happy Christmas and Merry New Year!

It's "chilling" cold here in France so it's good to see Christmas Celebrated in the Southern Hemisphere.

Thanks for Sharing the "Heat"


Cheers !


For a moment I thought

by Bunyip on

For a moment I thought here's a man who speaks my language when I saw #85. Then I came across #90, I thought WTF.

And by the way you must visit the beautiful Gold Coast, Australia (about 1000km/ 620 miles north of Sydney) during Xmas / New year holiday period where the beaches are packed, and you'll surfing Santas


Great Pictures, Great Smiles

by Faramarz on

In the very last picture (#100), with your big smile, if a wave suddenly comes and wash away all the sand, the only thing that will be left of your "Happy 2012" will be "1"!

Happy New Year and live it up!
