It is a hanger, you can hang your jacket or anything similar there. The same exact ones typically available in lavatories for passengers and in galleys for crew members. In the passengers cabin, they are usually available in first or business classes' seats and it comes with a sign: I guess they forgot to add the sign, making it harder for passenger to ...

My guess would be the Mohonk Mountain House, "Around the last bend, a Victorian castle rises above Lake Mohonk, surrounded by carefully landscaped gardens and pristine wilderness. Inside you discover a warm interior that is reminiscent of the beauty outside – extensive woodwork, fireplaces constructed from Shawangunk stone, and expansive windows that frame ...

This category of equipment is known as "Ground Support Equipment" (see Wikipedia article). This includes a variety of utility vehicles, including refuelers, dollies, chocks, buses and more. However, the one you're after is the Belt loader: Belt loaders are vehicles with conveyor belts for unloading and loading of baggage and cargo on aircraft. A belt ...

I just found it in Ground support equipment: It is called "Belt loader".

It is an apartment complex built on the waterfront of Aarhus in Denmark. Isbjerget was created in a collaboration between four architectural firms: JDS, CEBRA, SeARCH, and Louis Paillard. It took 5 years for the project to be completed, and is one of the first projects to be completed within De Bynære Havnearealer, the new docklands quarter of ...

I think it is a part of the Brighton royal pavilion in Brighton, England.

They are almost certainly Buddhist monks - the shaved head and gray clothes (apparently called "gasa") are a mark of their ascetic style of living. The gray robes worn by a monastic declare that one is a practitioner, and represent the spirit of no belongings, letting go of all worldly desires.

He is Buddist. Buddists in Korea wear grey and red robes, despite of the most asian countries where the popular color is yellow and orange.

Those machines seem to have been quite common. Here is a photo of one: There were even patented, but unfortunately the patent does not reveal the financial background. From this court case however, you can read about the process of making such a purchase: The policy set out across the top the following specifications: "Do Not Purchase More Than a ...

It would appear to be the ones put up in San Mateo, Rizal, The Philippines. The largest ten commandments tablet was presented to Guinness World Records at HalleluYAH Prayer Mountain For All Nations in San Mateo, Rizal, Philippines on April 11, 2009. The tablet measured 65.04 square meters (700.08 square ft), organized by Sister Grace ...

Yes, these were for the Indian festival 'Holi', the festival of colours. It is the one of the most important festival in India and is celebrated by playing with colours (people put variuos colours on each other, it is fun). Coincidently, March 17, 2014, your travel day was the day Holi fell in 2014 (The Indian festivals are mostly dependent on lunar ...

@Michael and @tohecz are close... but not quite there. It's not actually a luggage tag... rather it is a protector for your luggage tag. It works like this one: However the rounded shape is intended specifically for the luggage tag that comes on some Guess luggage, such as the one shown here: I suspect your bag came with a similarly shaped luggage ...

Oddly, in the Dutch and Portuguese versions of XP it was called "Ireland", when the shot was actually taken in North America. Known as Bliss, it's from Sonoma County, California, USA. The location on Google maps - 38.250124,-122.410817. Amazingly, it was taken as part of a photographic work on the subject of wine making in the area. It now has a vineyard ...

He's a buddhist monk. If he speaks english, say hello and offer to buy him his dinner (don't worry, its not demeaning, buddhist monks live on the kindness of strangers by vow) and you'll get a fascinating conversation, and maybe even a bit of enlightenment!

I'd be more confident if you'd got the tail in the picture, but is it this: An article in the Daily Mail says it's a British Airways Olympic themed plane. British Airways has unveiled its first of nine Olympic-themed jets, revealing a striking white plane painted with gold feathers that will go into service [03 April 2012]. The Airbus A319 has been ...

Looks like an Eastern Water Dragon to me. From wildlife.qld.com.au: Sexually dimorphic with males more robust than females. Prominent spines on head and along length of back, with a laterally compressed body and tail. Long powerful limbs. Olive green to brown in colour with short dark bands on the body, dark stripe behind the eye. Males have a ...

Bliss is a hill in Sonoma County, Calfornia, the shot was taken by Charles O’Rear.

I guess that you can put a label with your personal information there, so that the finder knows who the bag belongs to in case the bag is lost.

It doesn't appear to be real, but in these cases you really want Google's Search By Image. That shows that it's almost certainly digital art created by Mobius, direct link to the image: http://www.eliteforever.co.uk/images/5MRVNb0.jpg What's odd is that your version appears to have the flying craft and the signature removed. It looks like it's been ...

By the looks of things and the comments posted on the photo below it is a North Korean Whiskey. https://www.flickr.com/photos/jeremyfox/7070619751/ This is confirmed by another blogger, which apparently is available from a shop at the DMZ. Additional Info Found another blog with the trip to DMZ with a picture of the alcohol from North Korea but the ...

Yes, that's it. I just checked my passport, where mine is still in from three years ago, and can confirm mine looks like that too. They check it at the entrance to the area, a few hours out of Dushanbe, and then at many, many checkpoints along the way - at least to Khorog, which is as far as I got unfortunately, before needing to turn back. Enjoy the many ...

I remember that sometime in the 90ties I saw something like this at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. Of course different design - looked much more like a ticket vending machine of the time. But it sold insurances for a single flight. Was even tempted to buy one as it was rather cheap. Too bad I don't remember details, and no photo. But I think part of ...

I would agree with what Michael says: it's for your personal badge. Typical usage is that you put inside a heavy-paper card with your name and home address. Typically, you put the name there in such a way that it's visible when the paper is inside (so that you can identify your luggage), and you put your home address in such a way that it's covered (so that ...

Old undiscovered islands is possible, but unlikely, given we have satellite imagery of the earth down to very high resolution detail. However, there are plenty of examples of mistakes being made, and some islands that we 'know about' may not even exist. As recently as 2012, an island was found not to exist despite being on historical maps for 150 years, and ...

"Was"? Travel insurance vending machines are alive and well in that wonderland of vending machines, Japan! Ryokouhoken-jidouhanbaiki (旅行保険自動販売機) can be found to this day at most larger Japanese airports. For example, JII has machines at 8 airports, and here's a row at Kansai Int'l: (courtesy this guy) As for how they work etc, it's really no different ...

I believe it is a credit card holder, wallet. The slot is there to make it easy to push the card(s) out of the wallet. I found an example of something somewhat similar that might help confirm my guess. The main thing that makes me unsure of my guess is the rounded shape... I would expect a credit card wallet to have square corners to hold the cards snug.

It's not real. You can see clearly in the image that several buildings are copied into it since they appear twice or more. This is a CG (computer graphics) wallpaper of a fictional futuristic city.
