Why am I not getting my photos approved?

     Hello everybody, I've been trying to post new photos for about a week, but it doesn't work. I've been told that the uploading process has been successful and that I've just needed to get the photos approved. I've been waiting for about 4 days and nothing has happened.

Synchronization Saves Your Time

Tonight, when I was in the kitchen doing the chores, I noticed that I was doing some sort of synchronization. I put the milk on the stove. I set the burner so that the flame was not too much; I didn't want the boiling milk to overflow and make the stove dirty. Meanwhile the milk was slowly boiling, I started washing the dishes. But from time to time,I also kept an eye on the milk to see when it's done.

"I would like to introduce to you a nice, but dangerous tourist site in my area: it's called Adiyanpara. It's a waterfall. Around that area you have to walk carefully as the rocks there are very slippery there. It is about 15 km away from the town. I can never forget this place in my whole life because once I fought for my life in this waterfall. At that time I had college-holidays. We planned to visit the waterfalls. There are many big and small waterfalls at that place. Nature created a…
