Thanks for the clarification. I believe this is a bad design here - I have spent half an hour looking for my bookmarks. They should be explicitly visible from the profile page or at least a link should be there.
Thanks, I can see it now. My problem was that I was not getting to that page but rather to profile settings etc. To get to that page you need to click on your name and I was clicking on the arrow next to it - this shows various settings but not a link to the profile page. So actually my rant is not about a Bookmarks link but the Profile link.
My name there does not look like a link. That is probably the root of the problem.
